I believe you can purchase TPMS as an additional thing for all TEX models. It's just that it comes bundled in for some, and an add-on for others.

I've never had TPMS on a bike before and liked it on the Triumph - especially as I seem to be prone to punctures !! But this device is a complete waste of time and unreliable - keep your money in your pocket ! They  cost a fortune to repair. My single biggest cripe on my almost perfect bike !!

I too have an XRX but wasn’t laying out £200 for the Triumph system. Instead I fitted one of these, works exactly the same at a fraction of the price.

I have the same one and it works great....and the best part is you can take it with you when you buy a new bike... :001:

Full disclosure, the cheap mount did break, but I now have it mounted on a ram ball and its as secure as it can be
