Tired of silver, not my favorite color for a bike.  I would love to get one in the hunter green or maybe it is called Triumph green, but guess blue will have to do.

I prefer the blue. Good strong colour, I've got bored with the insipid and a bit bland silver/grey/black of the beemer. Although looking at the photos above close up the blue one doesn't come with the an ariel...

Ordered mine in blue? But still wouldn't  be disappointed if it comes silver.
I think it would look stunning in white or British Racing Green.

I haven't seen a silver Trophy, but right now if I had to make a choice, I'd probably go with blue.

Saw this one today at Ray Price in Raleigh.  Going back up to ride it on Monday.

Silver for me. It doesn't show the dirt so quickly. My previous two bikes were dark coloured and they showed every little bit of dirt and stone chips etc. Plus, the silver has a hint of ice blue in it which looks good in the flesh.

Anyone else noticed that all the Triumph photos show the Trophy with a light silver color on the wheels, but everyone I've seen has a dark silver color, is this an option or a change by Triumph?

i chose silver because i don't like the shade of blue (too bright) and think there is too much of it..... i would love a colour scheme like the RT uses Midnight blue w/grey silver... the two tone contrast really pops... and it's a dark deep blue (almost black)

It was a very hard choice for me.  I debated and discussed with my brother for nearly two weeks which to order.  Finally opted for the Silver

Post by: Ndo on May 08, 2013, 07:21:27 AM
I am going to have my Blue painted White as soon as I get a chance. I like white vehicles for some reason. And, statistics shows that white vehicles are the least likely to get into a wreck...probably because it reflects light.

I had a grey/black RT and people keep jumping in my lane. After I painted white the incidents stop. It could be coincidence, but at any rate, I like white.

When I had the white RT everyone moves out your way cause in their rear view mirror the siloutte of the bike looks like police.

My Concour was black...I like your bike...black looks great on that TT

Post by: Verdun95 on May 16, 2013, 09:20:52 PM
Mine is Blue, we had lenghty discussions with my better half about it. She was in favour of the Silver, concerned that Blue might ressemble too much to the Gendarmes'. Finally she let me convince her to go for the Pacific Blue  :152:

but what I would have loved is a bright Red one
Title: Re: Poll: Which colour scheme is best ?
Post by: Old leather on May 16, 2013, 10:22:19 PM
Blue gets me going. The silver is too similar to the Beemer.
Title: Re: Poll: Which colour scheme is best ?
Post by: crazyman on May 17, 2013, 06:56:15 PM
It's funny.  At first I liked the slight bluish tint with the silver (Lunar Silver).  The Pacific Blue looked too dark for me at first. 

I'm going tomorrow to buy a Pacific Blue SE (I hope to at any rate). 

So, Pacific Blue. 
Title: Re: Poll: Which colour scheme is best ?
Post by: Saaz on June 13, 2013, 12:36:36 AM
Has to be Pacific Blue as that is the only colour coming in the next batch to Australia. I quite like the silver as well, so would have had a hard time deciding.

I saw a blue one at a dealership and I was surprised how poorly the paint looked with all of the small scratches and marring, just from people getting off and on the bike in the showroom.  I was thinking to myself that I would hate to take delivery of that bike with the way it looked.

I would probably go with the lighter color just for that reason.

Neither color is "bad"; but, if I had been able to get the silver, I would have.

That said, they can take my Trophy when they pry it from my cold, dead hands...   :233::172: :233:
Title: Re: Poll: Which colour scheme is best ?
Post by: cropbiker on June 28, 2013, 07:28:43 AM
The fact that the poll is so close to 50/50 says a lot. As you say, neither blue or silver are bad, although us blue riders are more handsome and better in bed!
 :745: :745: :745:
I wonder how different the results would be with say British Racing Green and silver as the choice?
Personally, I would have liked Triumph to offer a version of the bike with some decals/more colour to it as well, even if that had been a few extra quid for the option..

Test rode the dealers silver SE fully loaded demo heated seats the lot. 
Got a great deal on a Blue SE.

Agree a 2 tone would be nice.
Had a yr2000 Sprint ST in BRG

Would have liked the Triumph decal on the Trophy like on the Sprint. But cannt find one anyway. Only thing that says its a Triumph is on the Panniers and below the screen.

But whatever the colour it is still the best bike on the road. :821:

I have never regarded the colour as important.   I usually pick whichever is ion the show room for ease and quickness of delivery.   In the case of my new Trophy it is grey,  :430:, I mean Lunar Silver.   My last bike, Sprint Gt was Pacific Blue.  I liked them both but the colour is not high on my specification list.   In an ideal world I would  have had a white with blue tint and frame like my 2010 Daytona 675.   :152:

There are some "Triumph" decals on E-Bay that look similar to the ones on the Sprint,
and in different colours ( Gold, Silver, Black ), Triumph Stickers (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TRIUMPH-DECAL-STICKER-GOLD-CHROME-DAYTONA-TRIPLE-High-quality-upgrade-not-OEM-/140974687267?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item20d2bf0423)

All this talk about blue or silver reminds me of an episode of Babylon 5!

Yes, sorry, :431: Geek alert! :005:

In the episode there is a race called the Drasi
who, every few years have to draw a flag at random from a barrel. They become either 'green' Drasi or 'purple' Drasi. The greens and purples then proceed to gang up and beat the crap out of each other! :192:

Eventually, one side wins and all goes back to normal. I think the episode was social commentary on random bigotry or some such..

I guess for purple and green read blue and looney silver! LOL :745:

Of course blue (purple) win, because it rocks!

Yeah....

we should hold a poll for the next colour schemes and present them to Trophy

I agree.... a nice candy red metallic would be good.....

British racing Green.... gotta be done too!

And something two tone... or maybe even tri tone!

Well, here's some more "colour" News -

On the Triumph web site, the option to select "Lunar Silver" is no longer there,
and apears to have been replaced by the "Phantom Black" !

( Lunar Silver owners will be pleased to hear this as their bikes will now become rarer,
and even more sought after, with increased resale values  :015: ).

As predicted way back here : New colour for 2014 (https://www.triumph-trophy.com/index.php/topic,1828.msg24173.html#msg24173) we now have the new 2014 colour of Phantom Black,
and I have heard through the grapevine that the new colour for 2015 is likely to be "Champagne"
( a sort of light gold colour ), which will be formally announced soon, and maybe other colours too  :028:

I just was in the local dealership (WI, USA) and they informed me the 2 available colors for 2015 are Phantom Black and Pacific Blue.  As was stated, Lunar Silver is no longer offered.  I look forward to see what Phantom Black will look like on this bike as my 2000 Trophy 900 is Pacific Blue.  The darker colors seem to make this bike look a little slimmer!

I actually did not see the post of the black Trophy.  Thanks for pointing it out.  I see on the Triumph France site it is an option for a color.  No mention of it on the USA website yet.  I really like the Pacific Blue and Phantom Black since my 2000 Trophy 900 is Pacific Blue and my 2013 Street Triple R is Phantom Black.  It's going to be a tossup on which I prefer on the Trophy.

What is also interesting is that the "Standard" model Trophy, which had been removed from
the Triumph Web Site - leading to potential customers thinking that only the SE was now available,
has now re-appeared on the Site, and is available in the original Lunar Silver or Pacific Blue colours,
but not Phantom Black as shown below ( or any other colours ).   :084:

Post by: GJ-Trophy on October 15, 2014, 07:01:06 PM
Let's stick with blue, it's the best colour and the fastest of the TTSE in production. But if a red was considered than I think this would beat all blue productions.

But most important faster than the blue and well back would be silver.

Triumph have changed the colour options on their Web Site,
for the Standard and SE models again ( not the colours ).

Lunar Silver is now only available on a new Standard Trophy,
while Pacific Blue is available on either the Standard or SE model,
and Phantom Black is only available on the SE model !

I guess some Lunar Silver SE owners will be really pleased,
as their bikes are now that little bit rarer, and hence worth more  :038:

Excuse me but...
Silver is a lighter color than black, blue, or Red. Since Light travels at ~187,000 mile/sec, it's obvious that lighter colors are closer to the speed of light. Therefore, Silver will always be faster than any darker color. Good thing they don't offer a white option because it probably wouldn't be street legal!  :725: :730:

Based on US pricing (from Bike Bandit) for around $1,200, not including any little miscellaneous bits, one could purchase all the OEM panels with the other color.   Change the  look every now and again.  Just sayin'.

Change the  look every now and again.
Would be a pain to stay legal ( in the UK at least ) by informing the Licensing Authority ( DVLA )
every time you changed the bike colour though  :087:

So how do the authorities get over those car colours that change depending on the way you look at them?

Just wondering....

The New York show in December was the same. re: no Trophy at the Triumph display. Unfortunate IMHO because the show 2 years ago was when I saw/sat on the Trophy and decided it was an excellent fit for my needs. Opportunity lost by Triumph.

I also saw the Trophy for the first time at the New York show 2 years ago. Got a demo ride at a local dealer shortly after, and ordered one that day. When asked which color, I said 'yes"

Fortunately, a blue one came in  :062:, which I now know is better . . . and faster too!

Pour ma part, n'ayant pas encore de Trophy dans mon garage (pas avant 2016) et ne sachant pas encore si je prendrais une moto neuve ou d'occasion de 2015 (se sera suivant les nouveaux équipements) !! je trouve les 2 couleurs proposés trop foncées, je ne voterais pas pour ma couleur préféré   :431:

Par contre je réfléchis sur la couleur qui me ferai le plus plaisir et je fais des essais avec photoshop d'après une photo d'un triumphiste d'ici, à priori je pencherai sur complètement blanche ou blanche et rouge vif.
J'aime les motos rouge comme les Ducati... mon Tiger est rouge lucifer !!! ça me fera 2 motos rouge dans le garage.
Mais j'ai aussi fait des essais avec d'autres teintes comme le jaune, rouge, rouge et blanc , blanc et bleu, marron et gris et pour finir rose (barbie) pour le fun  :008:

Traduction Google :

For my part, have not yet Trophy in my garage (not before 2016) and not knowing yet if I would get a new or used motorcycle in 2015 (next to be new equipment) !! I find the 2 colors available too dark, I would not vote for my favorite color :431:

By cons I reflect on the color that will make me the most pleasure and I'm testing with photoshop from a photo of a triumphiste here, I will focus on a priori completely white or white and bright red.
I like the red bikes like the Ducati ... my Tiger red Lucifer !!! it will give me two red bikes in the garage.
But I also experimented with other colors such as yellow, red, red and white, white and blue, brown and gray and finally rose (barbie) for fun  :008:

Silver is obviously the faster colour look at F1
But I do like the way the faring is broken up in 2 colours on that pic. I think Triumph should bring a 2 tone Trophy out. It would break up that large slab of plastic and would also make the bike stand out from the other STs. That is why I didn't get a blue one to much blue plastic it looks like a bottle bank on wheels  :015:

Maybe owners of blue and lunar silver bikes should pair up and swap alternating panels to get 2 tone bikes!  :001:

Could be a cheap option to jazz things up

Post by: malcolm on March 02, 2015, 01:02:03 AM
Thats a good idea now the black one is out you could brake up the blue or the silver by just replacing one panel in black that would be quit cheep especialy the top panel around the mirror I think they are only £45 each side
Title: Re: Poll: Which colour scheme is best ?
Post by: Coconut on March 02, 2015, 09:14:32 AM

Correct ! RRP = £44.05 - same price for LH or RH :028:

Wow fnhead that Black looks really nice. 

I'm keeping an eye on my Dealers Black demonstrator and thinking Black Powder coated wheels and black trim where the engine vents are............just slipped off into a dream World.............

They all look nice and currently my Silver one floats my boat, I assume all the noise about which colour is fastest we are only talking Nano seconds in the speed differentials? :164: :164: :164: :164:

Obviously, I voted for Lunar Silver since that is the color of the 2014 TTSE I own.  However, the new Phantom Black (available in 2015) looks even better, but I have yet to see one in person.  The real advantage of the silver is it reflects more light and therefore easier to see on the road.  This makes Lunar Silver not only the fastest, but the SAFEST color.   :062:

Although mine is Lunar Silver, I like the blue one too. The black version disappointed me a bit; a matter of taste I guess. How about BRG or that new red colour Renault uses for some of her cars? http://tinyurl.com/pu8tz6t (http://tinyurl.com/pu8tz6t)

LATE TO THE PARTY FOR SURE BUT BETTER LATE THAN NEVER.  WE GOT THE BLUE ONE BECAUSE THAT'S THE COLOR IT WAS. MY S3T WAS SILVER ALONG WITH MY DUC ST2.  THE MONSTER TRADITIONAL RED. THE BEEMERLT IS THE GOLD 05' LIGHT YELLOW METALIC, THEY CALLED IT. MY FAVORITE COLOR ON A BIKE IS A LIGHT BLUE OR A LIGHT BLUE AND WHITE LIKE A GS1000S WES COOLEY SUZUKI. NEXT BEST BLUE IS THE CAPRI BLUE ON SOME BEEMERS NOW GONE FROM THE RANKS. NOW IF TRIUMPH THRU US RABLEROUSRES HERE ON THIS SITE DECIDE WE WANT OUR TROPHY BACK THIS IS AN ARE THEY COULD EXPAND INTO! 2 TONE SILVER AND DARK BLUE, TRIUMPH GLACIER WHITE AND SUNFLOWER YELLOW LIKE ON THE 75 TRIDENTS, THE PRETTIEST ONES! I COULD GO FOR THAT SCHEEME ON AN SE!  THE RED WAS GREAT TOO! BLACK IS BORING. YELLOW WITH SOMETHING WITH IT A LITTLE SILVER OR BLUE. THEY COULD HAVE DONE MORE TO SELL THIS BIKE, IT AMAZES ME HOW LONG IT TOOK FOR ME TO FIND OUT ABOUT IT. TOO TSLL GOR MANY RIDERS IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM. MAKE A TALL AND SHORT MANS BIKE VERSION. IT'S A SHAME TO DISCONTINUE THIS BIKE. IF THEY TRIED TO SELL IT THEY COULD HAVE SOLD MANY MORE OF'EM.
