    I've been keeping an eye out on them too. Most of the dealers are between $15,500 to $16,500 for the 2015's, one here is also at $13,999.

    On this topic, now that the newly updated Explorers are arriving in the US, the previous-years' Explorers should have great discounts also.

    I've got a 2013 Explorer and my 2015 Trophy.    Between these two bikes, I'm absolutely content/thrilled/amazed/happy.   

    For anyone seriously considering adding another bike to their stable, go ride an Explorer.   Even though the engine is the same as the Trophy, they are two totally different bikes.   The Explorer's riding position is more upright and open, the power is better (pushing less weight), and the Explorer flicks in the twisties better too (again, less weight to throw from side to side.)

    I have a Moto Guzzi Stelvio as well as the Trophy.   The "adventure bike" style and the "sport touring" style are very different, and each has their own use and charm, but the person who wants the weather protection, equipment, and styling of a Trophy might not be tempted by an Explorer.   Wouldn't hurt to try them both though.   I have, and went with the Trophy.

    Wow, that's saying something! I'm interesting in hearing more about that.

    I'm sure that there's someone who can explain to me why a bike mainly manufactured in the UK costs 13,500 GB Pounds ($17,820) in the UK and $13,999 in the US at todays terrible exchange rate of 1:1.32.

    My theory is that prices are calculated according to "what the local market will stand" i.e. "How much have you got?" rather than how production costs plus profit margin.
    The world is divided into 10 types. Those who understand the binary system and those who don't.
