Any changes for 2016?
« on: September 02, 2015, 08:54:57 pm »
When does Triumph announce the new model year?  Will there be anything new for the 2016 TTSE?

The only change I have read about is the cruise control rocker switch are extended to make it easier to operate by the throttle hand.  I wish they would just switch those buttons to the left side.

Wonder if it will be just the rocker itself and if the new rocker could be retrofitted to existing cruise control units?

Yes,  you can retrofit the complete new RH throttle  module with the new cruise control switches. I have seen posts on the Triumph Explorer ( I owned 2 before the Trophy) forum on this issue. If I remember correctly the newer module was priced in the £ 95  range initially but now has been recently changed to £ 193  :233:

If I read your post correctly, the situation is exactly as I feared.  I had hoped that you could simply replace the rocker itself for a few quid but you seem to be saying the entire throttle module has to be replaced.  It's not worth it to me.   :110:

I've seen the new rocker switch and it isn't a whole lot better for me to want to "upgrade".  I Just move my left hand over to push the button.  Realistically, if I am riding in a situation where doing that is not a safe move, I have no business engaging CC anyway.

This is just a cheap band-aid fix.  They need to relocate it to the left side and clean up the whole switch pod while they are at it.

I agree.  I'm more concerned with trying to engage cruise at night on the Interstate.  Of course backlit instruments would also solve that problem.

I always have the cruise in the on position, and then just lock in the speed with my right thumb.  Never have to look at it.  It is in a very natural place for me.
