At the current exchange rate works out about £15750. Expensive if based on an XRX.
With discounts you could get an XRT with the current Triumph offer on accessories cheaper.

They have done this before with an Orange version - will be no more spec than they can offer across the range - generally known as a parts bin special often deployed when the model

Your lucky in the UK to have competition when buying a new triumph, in Ireland we have one Triumph dealer who is the importer. Currently a new Xrt is €21340, so an Xrx with those extras at €3k less is tempting

Don't forget the UK scrapped VRT many years ago which is quite a wedge here and the VAT rate is lower there too. Blame the Irish Government for those two babies!

Dublin Triumph still creaming it though, Xrt in UK is approx €18500 + vrt €1500 doesn't make €21340!

Bikes in general are overpriced, due to PCP deals. People don't care about the ticket price, just the monthly payment.

Ask Dublin Triumph about their £Stg price promise, they have been doing it for a while now. They'll price match the UK pricing less any additional costs government cost of course. Yes, PCP, the great enable of modern times!

I like the paint scheme, and the blacked out plastic on the tank, might do that to mine someday, help reduce the visual impact of the large extension.  Otherwise, just what was popular in the 80s and 90s, bold new graphics!

Some more detail here. These special additions are the XRx and XCx models with a paintjob, Arrow exhaust and the quickshifter for an extra £400 (in the UK) over standard pricing.
