Considering Trophy - dealer not the most aggressive
« on: October 04, 2014, 09:09:56 pm »
I have owned 34 motorcycles, currently a BMW R1200Rt and Yamaha Bolt for driving around town. 

The sport touring category is BOSS - I have had a FJR 1300, ST 1300, and VFR 750F.  The BMW's are a little quirky, I have had four of them, I am wondering if Triumph is similar  :002:

As stated, dealer that I am seeking a new Trophy gave me full retail price, plus freight, plus set-up, plus doc fee and an average bid on my R1200Rt?  Since I have bought several Harley's, I figured the Triumph wasn't the same as a Harley, whereby the dealer expects retail ++.

Now they can't find a 2014, so I may have to find another dealer, make an offer on a 2015, and see what happens.

There were a few growing pains with the introduction of the Trophy. Some have had a few issues but  I think they're mostly worked. I don't hear many complain about issues with the 2014 models.

The bike is awesome. Though it is big and a bit heavy it handles like a much smaller bike. 87 octane gas. A lot of luggage room. Wonderful wind protection and ergonomics.

It's the best bike I've ever owned but I've only owned 6.

Blouin Performance in Augusta Maine has at least two Trophy SEs, perhaps 3. All 2014. Ask for Paul Fisher.
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.

go for a 2015 if supply/demand dictates you need to pay full retail.

Trophy is far superior to the old RT, and needless to say more mobile than the new RT

Miks. Just noticed your avatar.  You may want to consider modifying it seeing as this is a Triumph forum. Just a thought :038:
