    2013 vs. 2017 - Is it worth upgrading

    Hello,

    I attempted to search online and could not locate any changes from one model year to the next.  I have 2013 with 14,000 miles and do not have issues.  Is it worth upgrading?

    Thank you

    Other than the cylinder head replacement issue for SOME of the early models, I think the only thing you might get that is different is the right hand switch cube that is slightly angled and has a shorter reach to the cruise control buttons.  I'm not sure they fitted a different wiring harness to eliminate the ignition wire chafing by the brake/clutch cable lines, but I don't think they did, so differences since 2013 are minimal.  I'm sure coconut and digital and others can enlighten you on any other changes by model year. :821:

    No.

    Your 2013 with 14,000 miles is barely run in!

    I rode a 2013 to about 65,000 miles and bought a 2016 brand new because the 20,000 service was going to be expensive and the dealer made the cost to change an easy decision.  My 2016 now has 89,000 and has been great.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    As trophied has said, one of the changes was the set of switches on the right hand side and it's easier to turn the cruise control on and off.

    Updates:
    Extension of the rear and front fenders, to make them longer, for example with the update of the rear fender, does not dirty the saddlebags as much as in the previous Trophys.

    Triumph logo placed on the cover of the clutch assembly.

    Gear sensor, I seem to remember that the previous one had 3 cables and the updated one has 4 cables and is connected to another sensor in the intake box.

    I am not aware that they had made any other change of harnesses or anything else.

    The Trophys that I have been seeing and until the year 2017 did not make any changes regarding the tracking of the ignition key harness.
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    Thank you
     That settles it.  Keeping the one I have now.  I appreciate the help.   This all started when I joked with my wife about buying a different bike. I was stunned when she did not complain.

    Dang, no complaints makes it a downright shame that Triumph didn't continue production and upgraded the Trophy with all kinds of new goodies for you!  Coulda, shoulda, woulda! :745:
