A buddy of mine bought the 800. I took it for a long test drive, I'm just not a fan. Maybe too much time spent on my 675? Keep in mind I have owned two multistradas in the past. It reminded me of the 1100s a bit, but the 800 seemed super tall and there wasn't that much great to say about it. Definitely a very good bike, most people think. Can't put my finger on it. Thought I would fall in love with it, maybe too heavy? Anemic engine? Fueling seemed a bit off to me too. Pretty comfy though.
My advice, take a good long test ride before purchase. Think I would take the beemer over the Triumph.
So many bikes, so little time.....
