    Hi folks - just sold my 20 year old Trophy 900 and I'm considering a Trophy SE.

    Looking to tap in to all your knowledge to help me pick between the bikes available.

    Cheers,

    Andy

    Hi Andy and welcome. :821:

    For the uk there was two models. The SE and Standard A1. I have the A1. The only difference is the SE has Radio and electronic suspension. Mine has traction control, cruise control and I have fitted non Triumph TPMS.

    Best advise is take your wallet if you do a test ride. It's cracking ride and the best bike I have ridden in 40 years.  :028:

    Thanks Silverstripes - I'm hoping for an SE, prices aren't that far apart, it's just how many miles do I draw the line at?

    Noted the posts/comments on modified heads, rear suspension linkages, TPS life and front disc warping - so plenty to consider.
