Looking for a copy of Triumph Trophy SE Review from 2012
« on: September 14, 2019, 08:42:42 AM »
Does anyone still have a copy of the orginal "motorad"
Triumph Trophy Review that was published in late 2012
when the Model was first launched ?

( I'm fairly sure it was by "motorad" but I cannot find a copy of the review on line ).

Within the review it was mentioned about the failure of the Ignition switch wiring,
and I would really like to be armed with a copy of that in a report to Triumph
and the UK DVSA about this ongoing problem.

Thanks,

Is it this one:

Unfortunately they seem to charge 2 Euros (via PayPal) for a back copy.

I don't know if that's the one or not - without reading it,
( and I don't know the German langauge ) !  :008:

... the one I read previously was definitely in English language though.  :084:

I was hoping someone might have a paper copy of the magazine,
amd / or had saved the article.

Cheers  :821:

I have found this Motorrad Online article from August 2012. It's in German, so here's a computer-translated version  :027::

Thanks bn101,

I've just scanned through that and unfortunately it is not the one I read previously,
so maybe it wasn't by "motorad" after all.

The Report I am trying to find was from when Triumph launched the Model
and gave several Trophy Domonstrators out to members of the Media.

One of the reports mentioned failure of the Igniton switch wiring,
amd that is the ioe I'm trying to find !

Cheers  :821:

Blimey, did those wires fail so soon, even whilst on a press launch?

I remember reading an article on a stripped down Trophy after it had covered X amount of miles, can't remember if they actually found that particular issue? Maybe that's the article you are thinking of??

I also remember the test, and the wiring failure, but cannot recall which magazine did it. My suspicion is that it was a German magazine though.
