    Trophy SE Value

    I personally plan on keeping my TTSE for quite some years but have concerns as to whether or not it will retain any real value due to its obsolescence.  Has anyone owned a bike that has been discontinued and what has been your experience about its continued value.  Your kind input will be appreciated!

    Best Regards,
    Gary

    1979 ducati 900ss. New
    price £2499.  Discontinued around 1981. Current price £20, 000 plus. Not worth it in my opinion.
    1969 aermacchi 350 ala doro race bike. New, around £500, current price 10k. As above
    manx norton, couldn't give it away for £300.  Now 25k. As above
    tz 350 watercooled drum brake model. £800 new. £250 at 5 yrs old. Now 10k.
    Need I go on?
    you have a modern vehicle, which isn't normally viewed as an investment. Just enjoy it for its atributes and ride it for its designed life cycle then move on. If anyone can tell me what to buy which will increase ten fold or more in value, like the above, I'm all ears, though I doubt the trophy will be on the list.

    I have a 2013 Pacific Blue SE with 15k on the clock, in excellent condition. The local Triumph dealer, same dealer that did the 10k service and tires for $1200, just graciously offered me $3500 to trade on another vehicle they have in stock. Spending over $19k for it only 4 years ago, I expected to take a hit to the wallet but $3500?? No way in hell!! I found that figure very insulting, and told them so, I see realistic retail for the bike between $7000 - $8000. Am I delusional?

    Never knew a dealer that would give anything for a used bike, best to sell it yourself. He would give you 3500 and turn around and sell it for 8000.  :003:

    Gary when I bought my first motorbike I looked at two choices Triumph and Harley Davidson, after 10 years finally selling my Dyna on PX for a Trophy. Having owned that particular Dyna  for 5 years I only lost £2000 from when I bought it. I was under no illusions that the Trophy wouldn’t hold its money but still went for it and all I can say is I wish I had done it years ago.  I love my Trophy it handles great is really comfy and most of all is a much better bike for use all year round on UK roads. I keep hearing the rumours that Triumph are discontinuing the Trophy and see contradictory Info from Triumph, they are still selling them for 2018. Things go round in circles at the moment popular bikes are modern retro as well as explorer type bikes, but none of these does what I want like the Trophy. If you want a bike like the Trophy it it holds its value a little better go BMW rt but you will pay for it when buying it and running it for exactly the same riding experience.

    If the residual value is of any concern it's probably better to assess it before making the decision to buy. Besides I don't think the history of past discontinued bikes would help in any way; they all stand on their own
