Triumph has given us details on their all-new Trophy and Trophy SE touring bikes, and the machines are loaded with options.
The Trophy comes loaded with all sorts of electronic bits, like ride-by-wire throttle technology, traction control, electronic cruise control, linked ABS, and tire pressure monitoring system.
It’s powered by a 1215cc three-cylinder engine that puts out 132 bhp and 89 ft-lbs of torque at 6,450 rpms. Service intervals are at 10,000 kms now, with major service at 20,000 km intervals.
It has a shaft final drive, and comes with Triumph’s Dynamic Lugagge System as stock equipment. The luggage system’s bags are all able to be moved up to five degrees, to allow users to optimize stability and placement.
The panniers each have a 31-litre capacity, and the optional top box has a 55-litre capacity.
The top box is able to be installed without messing with any wiring, and has a 12v plug inside to charge your electronic devices while on the road.
Want comfort in your touring bike? The Trophy and Trophy SE have heated passenger and rider seats, and the electronically adjusted windscreen has a memory function returning the screen to its previous position when you start the motorcycle. The rider’s seat can be adjusted from 30.3 inches in height to 31.1 inches.
The Trophy SE has a few upgrades over the stock version, including a Bluetooth-integrated music system and electronically-adjustable suspension from WP.
The WP system allows riders to choose their damping setting – Sport, Normal, or Comfort – and then select their load-out – Solo, Solo with luggage, or Two-Up – to find their suspension sweet spot.
Triumph says the machines will be available in the Pacific Blue or Lunar Silver paint schemes; they’ll know the MSRP in September, and the bikes should be available by October.
BMW copy – That’s just what I was thinking, but more K than R.
how nice of triumph to recreate the 2009 BMW R1200 RT only with more gizmoes
