    Is Triumph Discontinuing the Beloved Trophy?

    Just wondering if anyone else out there has been hearing the same rumors that I have.  I have heard from a few different places that the Trophy will be discontinued due to lackluster sales.

    I hope they keep it around.  I can see myself buying a new one every few years.

     Since they do not advertise, it may take a while to get the word out on how great these machines are.

    My source told me, that due to very poor sales, 2017 will be the last year for the TTSE.

    Is this only for the US or worldwide. I can't believe Triumph would kill off their most awesome BMW beating tourer

    all dealers in Brazil told me the same thing.

    The same phenomenon happen with Bmw K 1600 that they have decided drop the sales last year.

    Probably this rumor is going to be truth.. Unfortunately..

    This kind of bikes are very niche positioning, with high costs and not some much volume.

    In another hand, Ducati is coming to LA with very appetite, specially to positionate the multistrada and panigalle.

    So..?
