A desire to change for the future
« on: June 14, 2016, 03:11:12 pm »
Hi  :158:,

If we imagine the future  :164: with a new model of Trophy in 2017, you would like Triumph change anything on the Trophy ??

Personally I'd like Triumph provides the following :

* Improves ergonomics of the controls on the handlebars.
* Improves mp3 player.
* Modernizing some dials on the dashboard.
Regards,

Troph-@-63-FR

This was discussed a while ago ( April 2014 ) here : For you guys at Triumph, here is our wish list..

Due to the age of that Topic it is probably not a good idea to post to that one, and to continue here ...

Triumph did implement at least one of the suggestions from that post
( whether it was as a direct result of it or not, we may never know )
by re-designing the Cruise control switches to make then a little easier to reach  :169:

For me I'd like to see :

  • Handlebar switches with back lighting
  • Handlebar position options ( different Bars or Risers )
  • Provision for Supplementary lighting connection
  • Better branding of the "Triumph" make e.g. some BIG Tank decals
  • Option to purchase an extended official Triumph Warranty
  • Ability to download Software updates from the Triumph Web Site ( such as Audio updates ),
    and apply them to my Trophy myself rather than having to visit the Dealer !
  • New colour(s) - BBBRG ( Bring Back British Racing Green ! )

-Heated grips and seats standard not optional. 
-an air circulatory process .....it's hot behind the screen - good for the cooler days:)
-adjustable foot pegs
-a place for the GPS similar to BMW.  I do like the way they do that.   That's all I like....
-Wider seat.

  • Cornering ABS
  • about 30 more hp (while maintaining current fuel economy, maybe bump up to 89+ octane requirement to achieve that)
  • As someone else mentioned, ability to output audio from a BT source (e.g. audio out to the GPS cradle)
  • Vent hole in the stock windshield to relieve back pressure and provide airflow in hot weather
  • LED headlights
  • LED turn signals (did this myself)
  • Option for factory auxiliary lighting and crash protection (did this myself)
  • Make top box a little larger (inside), with interior light, gas struts, and option for exterior running/brake light (other than making it larger and the gas struts, did this myself, too)
  • Keep the current weight (or drop it somehow -- in other words, whatever is done, don't allow the weight of the bike to increase)

None of these are must-haves, and if Triumph came out with these improvements, I wouldn't bother trading my bike until it had many years worth of miles on it.

The BMW's GPS position is so far away from the rider, many people have a hard time seeing it while riding. Ours is much closer.

Big D,
Radio MUTE button
Are you aware that if you turn the Volume down to minimum,
and then keep going it switches to MUTE ( then OFF ? ),
or are you looking for a quick "one touch" Mute button ?

I'd like the quick "one touch" mute option.  It's not ergonomic to have to do the extended reach and hold of the current process especially when you are also trying to operate the clutch.

Standard round handlebars would be a big bonus.  Much easier to farkle.
