Welcome to the Forum :400:  The Trophy has a high seat and a low seat and seat can be adjusted.  I think there are others who are "vertically challenged" as well and they ride fine.  I'm not terribly tall myself.  There is also a thread about lowering the Trophy if you use the search tool.

Hi Ecka – am around 173 – have lowered seat - foot easily - had attached laser cut out of stainless – two off - dropped rear maybe 30/35 – now on over 10k (6k miles) – absolutely no problems – actually prefer this ride height - Paul

Hi Ecka and  :400:  to the Forum !

The U.S. export model is shipped with the "low" seat, and it has two height positions.

When you go for the Tedt Ride ask the Dealer to set the seat in the low position,
or adjust it yourself if you need to - it's very easy to do :

Unlock the seats with the lock by the rear light.

Lift the pillion seat up which disengages the rider seat.

Be aware that if heated seats are fitted to either take care not to strain the wiring,
or unplug the electrical connectors which are on the right under the pillion seat.

Under the front of the rider seat is a steel bar held in by a rubber strap.

Just pull the bar out of the  "high" position, against the tension of the strap,
and relocate it into the "low" position, then refit the seats
making sure the steel bar engages into the slots on the frame,
and the rear seat rubbers sit down into the recesses on the frame.

Reconnect the heated seats, if they were unplugged.

Re-engage the rear seat tabs into the pegs on the back of the rider seat,
and push down on the pillion seat pad until the lock clicks into place  :028:


All you need to do then is to be ready to pay a Deposit
as soon as you get back from the Test Ride - You will be smitten !

Thanks for the reply I think 800 mm is the lowest setting I hope it will be low enough if not it still won't stop me I'm keen as.  rode around Australia on a 410kg Harley with the missus on the back the TT is 100kg lighter and the mrs not on the back as she rides her own bike should be good :046:

If you do go for that test ride, be sure you bring you check book along!
My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.
