Hi Folks.

I went to the first day of the show (took my Burgman 650 down and not the TTSE). Thought you guys would like to see. There were all the big manufacturers there, clothing, spare parts, bike clubs and bikers holidays. See the Triumph stand and the other other makes too. The new Bonneville T120 looks gorgeous, especially in the Chromed version. Thruxton looks nice too.

No, I have been there today and there was NO TROPHY on the Triumph stand. I looked for it several times.  :125:
Don't ask me why.

Maybe it was too heavy to get one onto the stand.

Seriously though, it's a rather strange omission. You'd have thought all models would be on display.

Thanks Pantoscoop for confirming.

My dealer Roke Motors was on the stand so I'll ask him when I go for a test ride on the new Bonneville T120.

A Triumph-employee told my son that two bikes were not showed because of lack of space: the Trophy 1200 and the Daytona 675.
