    GBX is your man. I test ride one in 2018 but it was on dirt so probably useless feedback for you.

    friend of mine has a 2013 800..and complains a lot about heat build up between the legs.

    I dont have too much to offer as I've only had it since October. I've a 2019 one. AFAIK the heat issue has been addressed. I don't find it an issue on the XRT model. They are a great bike, comfy, fuelling is spot on, nothing to complain about so far. Other than not being able to get out on the thing for a proper spin. Just commuting for now. Theres a ton of info on www.tiger800.co.uk as well.

    Had one for a year, 2015 XRT, loved it. Very much a 'goldilocks' bike, great mix of power, comfort and handling.

    Good all rounder, does everything well.

    Had a 2014 Xc for over a year. XC version is taller with spoked wheels and IMHO looks better that the road biased version. Might be too tall for some though. Great all round bike with nice blend of power and comfort. Gear selector was weak point on mine and not a cheap fix. Engine generally bullet proof. Mine had a factory fitted Arrow exhaust which I found was too loud and would have swapped for a standard one if I was to keep it any longer. Engine heat is an issue but not a major one most of the time.
