    Triumph Marketing Ideas for The 2018 Trophy

    I like the idea of U.K. Delivery where  from the U.S.  I could fly in take delivery of
    my 2018 "Improved" Trophy ride it for up to four weeks in the U.K. Or anywhere then drop my 2018 Trophy off and fly back to the U.S.
    The dealer that I ordered it from would call me when it comes in.
    The shipping charges are already paid as you pay for them on all motorcycles and cars.

    I should get a New Trophy----// I mean the Winning Persons Idea they should get my /// A New 2018 Trophy

    I think one easy idea is to involve this forum and help to make trips and meets a triumph affair.  It was great when they turned up to the vulcan day out.  I know it took cropbiker work to make it happen. And triumph could have done more like send an engineer along. 

    We are a gregarious breed and enjoy reasons to meet up and triumph could build on that.

    I think the best idea for marketing the 2018 Trophy is for Triumph to ACTUALLY do some!!!!

    Their marketing of the Trophy so far has been unremarkable to say the least...
    Triumph Trophy! Not for every Tomaz, Dieter or Herman!🇬🇧

    The last two year of marketing has been to get people in the door with the "new classics".  I'm hoping that the next two years will be for touring bikes.  Maybe the introduction of the Tiger GT to North America along with a return of the sprint.  That would be a triple threat of touring triples.  They can even include the Tigers, Explorers, and Rocket 3's.  Something like ...... Triumph triple touring from short distance to long distance to incredible cruiser style with touring creds.  The Trophy can't succeed as a solo act.  It needs a supporting cast in North America too.

    They must make a good return on the classics.  They have like 5 or more different models going now.

    I fully agree with Cropbiker. All our praises of the bike on this forum (together with a few complaints), serves no useful marketing purpose, other than possibly encouraging some of us current owners to get a newer model. This forum probably comprises only a small percentage of all Trophy owners, but judging by the overall level of satisfaction among the forum members, Triumph would be wise to at least promote the bike before deciding to discontinue the model. No matter how well they expect to do with the classics range, growing demand for a reliable Trophy would always make good business sense.

    The only thing I miss about the trophy is the suspension.  Man, that suspension soaked up the bumps like they were not even there.
    Going to have to spring for some Ohlins on my new bike.

    A Marketing Idea!!
    Five Nation Parks in six days and 3100 miles just easy with a Trophy. Just did that.

      I can't understand why Triumph just doesn't show everyone what a Trophy an do like Land Rover did with the Camel Series , Bmw has learned .., showing their products doing things that normal owners will never do but those owners  can say you better believe my GS motorcycle can do that TOO.

    It's like knowing that a Great bike was just made to kick to the curb.
