Triumph logo
« on: April 30, 2013, 10:18:03 PM »
Why isn't there a Triumph logo on the side of the bike?
There is one on the side cover, black on black, and a tiny triangular one under the windscreen.
I am proud of my Trophy and hate it when I pass someone and they mutter about the BMW that has just flown by them.
Has this been done before? I looked at photos of most Triumphs and they boldly tell the world that they are TRIUMPH.
Go your own way.

I noticed that as well, OL. I had to get a Triumph badge and stick it on my jacket as the next best thing. I would rather have had Triumph announce itself on the bike with a bit more pride.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...

Well the panniers have logos.  Maybe Triumph figured we would always have them on the bike and went for the subtle look.

It does of course say TRIUMPH in big silver letters down the side!

Perhaps the manufacturer thought a logo was a bit superfluous  :001:

I think you mean TROPHY down the side.
Might as well as wish we had.

I do know what you mean. My bike is always being taken for a BMW at first glance.

Perhaps an Ace cafe Triumph jacket would help. I really fancy one of those.  :028:

One of the Australian forum member posted a pic with a union flag decal on his fairing, it looked as though it was factory fitted, he said it was from ebay as I remember. Maybe we could get the link.
