    Doubling Down on Triumph

    I traded my 2013 for a new 2015 TTSE and am really happy with the deal, my price was $14100 and my trade got me $12000 which had 24000 miles and was silver which was ok til I saw the black color and had to have it. I would have kept the old bike, but for the first time in a very long time, the trade in price was so close to the price I paid that I had to trade it off!!! I ended up with a very small 3 years of payments, besides, I don't need two of the same bike in my garage....

    Congrats on a good deal :047:

    Thanks! And yes there are a lot of silver and raw aluminum or something other than black that I will get colored to better match black with either different textures of black materials and the wheels are another thing that is an odd finish/color. I have seem some of the stuff posted members that look great, black bars and bar end weights among other things that I think look awesome!

    Sounds like a sweet deal, best of luck with the new bike.  I "debadged" my blue '15, Took off the chrome Triumph badge off the bags and the Triumph SE off the fairing.  IMO bike looks 10X better without them.

    You call a second bike a need?   :745:  Okay, two different bikes are better.

    Congrats!  I picked up my '15 for a very similar price ($13,800) and we have no sales tax to boot.
