    Looks suspiciously similar, though I didn't drill down very far.

    That is an amazing copy.  But then, the TTSE was ... sort of ... copied from the R1200RT ...   Wonder what the $$$ will be .. and of course reliability.

    Saw a '17 TTSE for sale recently, under 9000 miles and under $9000 as well...

    My '13 with just short of 100,000 miles must be fairly ... valueless..  :087:

    My son was looking at bikes this spring and found a Trophy for $7500.  I don't recall the miles but it was in decent shape.  He wound up trading his 2010 Tiger 1050 even up for a 2010 Kawi Concours.  It's nice but sure not Trophy nice.

    At this point, I don't care what my Trophy is worth.  As long as it remains reliable, I can't imagine replacing it.

    I'm more intrigued by this one: https://www.rideapart.com/articles/445065/cfmoto-launches-ktm-powered-1250tr-g/

    KTM motor, and check out that LCD dash! Happy with my TTSE, but when it comes time to replace it, I hope we have something like this available.

    Some interesting things happening in the motorcycle world.  Not a fan of Chinese products in general, but they are willing to step in and fill a void left by less interested manufacturers at times.

    At least someone else is interested in the Sport-Touring market...  :033:

    That awful! It is the closest thing to a Trophi than a BMW RT. Note that the saddlebag guard bars are very similar to those manufactured by Tralex.

    The tailpipe outlet on the right side, same as the Trophy. The front panels and air vents also similar to the Trophy. The seats, front fenders, handlebars, front wheel stops, etc.

    The only thing similar to the BMW is its front part of the instrument panel and little else ...
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.
