    Has anybody heard of the rumor saying that Triumph might be considering a new Trophy in 2018; it was published in a French Magazine "Moto Revue" yesterday! :085:

    Hmmm... fascinating.  I will keep my ear to the ground on this one.

    Agree - very interesting  :084:,  and will no doubt now generate `new rumours' of a `new' planned Trophy   `GT' ,  maybe.... :047:

    Was in my local Triumph Dealership a couple of months ago having some work done on the bike. Expressed disappointment that production was coming to an end.  The service manager said the Trophy was subject to a 'production pause' and the plan is to introduce a new Trophy in 2019.

    Time will tell !!

    I will be watching this development for sure.  Truly impressed with my Trophy but the dealers are having trouble selling them for any number of reasons - sad.  Thinking their best sellers are the Bonneville type bikes at the moment with the naked triples second?  We know Triumph hit a home run with the Trophy but the market seems to be saturated while prospective buyer's disposable income is collapsing here in the states. 

    I was fortunate to retire when I did as my peak earning potential passed well over a decade before retirement earlier this summer.  Retired with two motorcycles that put a great big grin on my face everytime I swing a leg over them!
