It's a tough choice. I struggled between the Tiger 800XC and my 03 T100. Had the T120 been out in 2011 when I bought my 800XC, I have no idea which one I would have chosen. At this point in time due to my age, I am stronmgly considering trading my 800XC for a T120. I cougs give you a list of the pluses and minues of both; but in the end, it depends on what you want and your riding style. Both bikes are winners. I will say this, the Tiger 800XC is the best all around bike I have owned in 61 years of riding. It does off pavement well, it is a great touring bike and it handles well in city traffic,

Thanks @CarlS Don't you think that it might have a backlash with other triuph model.. for example not comparing any naked model but what about bobbers??

Bobbers are different kind of ride. They are really not meant for touring nor off pavement riding. Adventure riders would not likely choose a bobber. On the other hand, a rider looking for a cool, good looking ride and a canyon carver would be drawn to a bobber. I like the looks of trhe bobbers; but they are not my kind of ride.

Did you repair or replace some worn out parts?
Add a new accessory?
Take it out for a drive on twisty back roads?
