Triumph Motorcycles is entering the touring market with the launch of the all new shaft driven Trophy.
At the heart of this tourer will be the same 1215cc tripple that makes the Tiger Explorer purr. This engine gives you a impressive 99 kW en 120 Nm in your right that you can easily twist as ride by wire technology is used. Ride by wire technology provides both traction control and cruise control functionality as well as optimising engine efficiency and fuel economy.
Two models are available – the Trophy and the Trophy SE. Either model can be selected in Pacific Blue or Lunar Silver paint schemes. Both models feature headlight positional adjustment, centre stand, rider seat height adjustment, lockable cockpit storage box with 12v power socket, a 26 litre fuel tank, and Triumph’s unique Dynamic Luggage System (TDLS), all as standard.
The range topping Trophy SE hosts a powerful integrated audio system, with Bluetooth technology, USB input, and iPod / MP3 player compatibility. The SE additionally features adjustable electronic suspension from WP, which is operated via an ergonomically designed switch cube. And Triumph’s Tyre Pressure Monitoring System will add a further layer of rider security on the SE.
