Can you buy extended warranty?

Anything as complex as a motor cycle is bound to have issues when first launched.  Product life cycles are so short and we consumers are always looking for something. In my view the Honda ST1300 is a brilliant well sorted touring bike but I choose a TTSE due to all the technology.  I rode a Kawasaki GTR1400 (Concours to our USA cousins), it was brilliant but buying a new one would be exactly as my first as there have been no major upgrades.

If you want a steady solid performing bike they are there, the Trophy adds a bit of Pizzazs, I love it; in four weeks I've had 5,000 trouble free miles, I did run out of petrol but that stupidity does not count!

There are no more gremlins with the Trophy than any other new bike or car these days! Even the behemoths if BMW and Toyota have had significant quality issues to deal with. The Trophy problems, by and large all resolved now, have been minor in comparison.

Any complex piece if technology, once out of warranty period, runs the risk if costing you money. Only you can make the call if you are prepared to self insure against such risk. Against the money you would lose moving to a new bike.

Bikes and cars loaded with tech and features will always break. They are in a harsh environment. If you don't want to worry about that then get a Dacia with no bells and whistles to go wrong. Either that or stop worrying about what MIGHT happen and get out there and live for today and enjoy what you have.

The only perfect thing in life is expectation.

From previous experience with Triumph any common faults will be dealt with free of charge even 12 month out of warranty so stop worrying and just ride.

Your call but I must agree with the other comments not to think what might happen and enjoy the ride.

Alternatively trade in on a 2015 TTSE?

I read all your comments with interest,  :084:But with 3 recalls then 5 warranty claims which are 1. screen motor 2. Top box 3. Exhaust 4. Warped disc's at 8k 5. Warped disc's at 10500k plus various glitches mainly display still happening
What would you think  :125: It ok saying get out and ride, We have just come back from Europe covering 6 counties over 2200 miles.
So I feel it's ok for me to judge.
The only good thing my dealership have been very good, were triumph have not responded to any of my emails. :192:

I disagree that all new vehicles have problems.  I bought a new 2013 Mazda CX5 in June 2012 and drove it for 40,000 miles in two years with zero problems.  None, nada, zilch.  It had a new engine and transmission design and was a marvel to drive.  Total service cost was about $150.   We'd still have it if the wife hadn't totaled it.
