    2015 Trophy

    I am getting very close to making my final decision to get a 2015 Trophy.  I have been researching for months several different bikes and I think the Trophy is the one for me.  I have had a lot of time working on a ST1300 that I loved but I want a radio & cruise that Honda does not offer.  I like the BMW's but so many stories about major failures that leave you on the side of the road.  I am looking for a bike to ride daily and take on long trips.  If it breaks down on the way to work I am ok with that but if it breaks while in the middle of nowhere while I'm on vacation I will not be a happy biker!!  With that being said it appears that most of the issues that Trophy has had were minor issues that would keep you from riding (except ignition & wire pulling loose).

    My question is this:

    I have seen a lot of recall issues with the Trophy but they all appear to be from the early models. Is it safe to say that the 2015 would have most if not all of these issues already taken care of at time of purchase?

    I have my eye on a couple left over 2015 that are well discounted and want to make the jump pretty soon.

    welcome aboard.  :821:
    The Trophy is an outstanding bike, all teething issues reported on earlier models have been taken care of by Triumph, I tend to believe that buying a 2015 model is as safe as it could be. Take a test ride if you have not yet done so and don't forget to bring your wallet ... :152:
    An old biker must be a good rider

     I have a 15 I bought last December I have 12,000 in less than a year no problems at all other than I hit a pot hole and bent front rim it took 2 weeks to get fixed  get wheel and tire protection well worth it.

    Welcome to the forum. I have a 2013 model and was one of the "lucky" ones with the audio issues. Aside from that I had my fork seals leak at about 25,000 miles. The only other problem I can report is that I don't have enough time to ride it and my Bonneville demands some attention too.

    I recommend buy.
    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.

    Gold Wing is too bulky.BMW stands for "bring more wallet".Good bikes but heavy on maintenance.
    Trophy is a great bike.No issues with my 2014 :400:

    I traded my wing for the Trophy. I was between the trophy and the BMW 1200rt I would have taken either.  The best deal I could make was on the left over 2015 Triumph and have been very happy with my choice. :002:
