This article has been updated with new pricing information released by Triumph:

$15,699 for the Tiger Explorer, $15,999 for the Speed Triple R and $9,099 for the Bonneville Steve McQueen Edition.

Also, the 2012 Triumph Speed Triple R will come with switchable ABS as standard, not as an optional add-on as initially reported.

For what you're getting The Tiger Explorer is right about where you'd expect it, my left-over '09 GS was $17k, I think MSRP was $18.5 or so with the Adventure model another grand or two. Are bags included with the Explorer? I couldn't get a straight answer at the IMS..

Not a make or break but just curious, I paid around $800 for the BMW Vario side cases keyed to the bike and another $500 for the top case, matching lock set and all the associated mounting plates and brackets. I would expect to pay more or less the same from Triumph unless they're included.

I don't think the price includes bags. It does include ABS,Traction and Cruise Control. I'm liking this bike more and more.

The Triumph bags aren't getting good reviews anyway. They're a bit too fragile, from what I've read.

There's so many good options for everything from bomb-proof aluminium panniers to lightweight molded plastic bags, buying the OEM gear seems kinda lazy.

Besides, what's more fun than dropping a few grand at the Twisted Throttle website?

Well I actually am kinda' lazy so it works out.... Nah I was just curious. Touratech sells the ally Zega panniers that are not only bomb proof but waterproof too.
