    I agree. There was no Trophy on display at our big bike show here in Utrecht back in February. It does seem a strange omission. I can only think that Triumph will sooner rather than later ditch the Trophy.

    I don't understand their approach at all... Been away for the weekend to Abergavenny and South Wales and everywhere I went and parked up had to spend 20-30 minutes talking to people about the bike and what it is.... People are interested in it...


    I tell them it's not for every Tom , Dick or Herman
    Triumph Trophy! Not for every Tomaz, Dieter or Herman!🇬🇧

    At the Long Beach show late last year, Triumph only displayed the new Bonneville line-up (Street Twin, Bonneville, Thruxton.)       Not a newly-revamped Explorer to be seen.

    I read somewhere that Triumph did that intentionally, to devote all of the spotlight to the new retros.

    must cost a lot less to make a retro bike than a trophy

    So few people know about the Trophy SE. If people are unaware something exists you can't sell it to them.
    My mother asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said "a biker". She said I'd have to choose one or the other.

    The Trophy is turning into a "best kept secret" :087:

    This months Motorcycle Sport and Leisure raved on about the new Yamaha tourer- but failed to mention the Trophy as an alternative - suggesting the Kawasaki 1400GTR was its closest rival

    They also had a piece on buying an second hand BMW 1300 and suggested 4 alternatives - none of them a Trophy

    Utterly balmy!
    Now got Black TTSE
    Used to have Pre-Launch Trophy - lowest recorded Trophy VIN
    Why Threeup? Me, SWMBO and her bear (Fredbear)
