No bike for a month...no way! That would be the last straw for me. You're right about the warranty too. When its gone, all this stuff could become expensive.

Well said... I have had mine for 2 months. After owning well over 20 motorcycles this has to be the worst.. triumph has been slow to solve any problem with mine. Infact they still have not fixed the problem. $20,000 grand dowhopefullyn and Triumph is doing nothing but running there name into the ground..... Why don't they come on this site and defend there lack of action.... One and done.... hopefully it will get stolen..but then again any educated thief will no the the bike is not worth the problems.

After 20 hours on the charger the Trophy started and rode beautifully this morning. Can a machine be schizophrenic? This thing certainly has two different personalities. I hate to think of what the resale value will be after word gets around.

This is probably obvious but have you checked the terminal connections?.... there seem to have been a few guys where the terminal connections have been loose....

A battery that only intermittently will hold a charge is defective. To me that is evidence of a bad battery, not the bike.
