I'm pretty sure the 900 won't have keyless, there is zero mention of it in the specs. If it is the first model to have a working Bluetooth system ahead of the bikes with keyless that will be interesting.

Yep, maybe the earlier comment about the danger of the bluetooth connectivity interfering with the keyless ignition was on to something.

Video I saw showed a headstock ignition barrel but not sure what model it was highlighting.
Looks to be key based ignition, so good for Triumph for listening.  So I've been thinking about the next gen T12.  Based on the updates to the 800, I can see the similar changes being incorporated, such as the dual radiators, thus allowing for lowering of the motor, larger TFT screen, don't know about the new crank, and please, the change back to a key based ignition.  As mentioned above, the keyless fob is nothing but problems waiting to happen, especially, as noted, the idea of the key falling out of one's pocket while in motion.

I've just spent the equivalent of a kidney on my T1200... hope they don't update it in the very near future

In my case, it didn't wait for too long: https://www.tiger-explorer.com/index.php/topic,17699.0.html
