    I got in to Triumph motorcycles because I had Land Rovers before and liked the English Feeling , The quirkiness the attitude the individual feel of each unit.

    What I found interesting was that there was no advertising no hey look at this model this is Unique!

    Harley Davidson dare I say makes motorcycles that I have no desire to ever ride but their marketing is genius!

    I would love to have Triumph to look at the methods they use, I was at my local Triumph dealership today and I was looking for small trinkets like keychains other things like that and I was told that they have ordered items that were available to come in for next year 2023 damn seems like a little bit of marketing could help that.

    I have been asked before who makes Triumph motorcycles.
    Or is that a BMW?
    We have people that would love to have another Triumph Trophy.
    Marketing is Triumphs weak point not their Bikes!
    I know I’m rambling but I want to see an improved Trophy out there to keep people from going to the BMW RT After all we all know the trophy will smoke the BMW lol

    You are correct, the Trophy’s biggest problem was the lack of advertising & promotion. I have enjoyed my Trophy for six years now & don’t know how many times people have asked what kind of bike is that. The only place it says Triumph on the bike is two small letterings on the saddle bags.

    My next bike will be the Honda NT1100, due to Triumph not offering a proper touring bike.   Their choice; my choice.

    I’m hoping my Trophy last.
    My first Trophy I put 40800 miles on the Trophy I have now I have just put 12000 miles so far, it was used but a good one.

    Land Rovers and Triumphs only here too 😁

    Did you ever see the brilliant marketing that Triumph did in the mid 90’s? Utterly brilliant, but cost cut out of existence about 25 years ago.

    I’ll be hanging on to a Trophy for as long as possible with no interest in moving on to anything else. I’d certainly never go back to a UJM - far too bland characterless for me (I’d rather take the car).

    Jaguars and Triumphs here but the British thing is the same.

    Thinking of a second bike now though, possibly Italian. Maybe Austrian. Hopefully I'll not be drummed off the forum..

    Does Royal Enfield count as British Indian?

    I’d consider Royal Enfield to be entirely Indian. The country that’s kept a bike industry alive, artificially, by crippling imports into their own market - imposing 50% tariffs on imported competition, including Triumphs.
    I would like to know how much more these RE’s would be if we were similarly protective of our own home market.
