    From memory :

    ECU / Engine tune,
    Emmissions control,
    Fuel Tank Capacity ( ? )
    XM Satellite Radio ( SE ).
    No red Side reflectors on the Licence Plate,
    No amber Side reflectors on the side of the Forks.

    There may well be others !

    There's also the difference of Triumph Dealers being located further away from Owners,
    although judging by recent UK Dealership closures, it seems that imbalance is being addressed !

    Cheers  :028:

    thanks Coconut.... I'll be in the states in March so thought about picking up the service manual while out there (getting my boy to preorder it).

    cheers

    Is the Service Manual that much cheaper to buy in the U.S. then,  compared to the U.K. ?

    Single-headlamp Triumph's (and other makes) had different glass patterns, the beam directed depending on right- or lefthanddriving. I can't check my Trophy now as being in Spain without the bike ;-(
