Thanks for all the replies  :028:......although I didn't really get an answer  :008:

It seems the weight savings are the exhaust (xca) lithium battery and small saving in engine internals and engine bars. Fully aware of the weight as I've had a Gen 1 XC for 3 years and, at times, it was a pain but I found the more I rode mine the easier and more confident I got. Parking on (or not if you can) gravel slopes are the biggest problem I found but the upside is a lovely ride and ace engine, hence the new XCX! Plus, the deal was a LOT better than a GS with the Triumph incentives and to be honest I quite like being the only explorer amongst a crowd of GS's you often see on your travels; I did a trip around Scotland in July and every other bike was a BMW!!!  :027:

Interesting though how almost all the reviews and road tests say the new bike 'feels' lighter and easier to manage!?  :084:

The only wait problem I had with my Gen3 was that it took 5 weeks for it be built........ :008:
