In an aged thread label 2012 Triumph Trophy. Triumph just released the US web site yesterday, figured I'd start a fresh thread with what it actually is, without 15 pages of assumptions.

For what I want right now, it just too heavy!!! it's 300kg+, just a behemoth!

But sure does look sweet. I'm not bothered by looking like an RT, I like the RT look

I dislike having to have the audio part just to have the eletronic suspensions, I think that would be a major bummer in case I wanted the bike

Wow, that's pretty brazen. The mirrors, the top case, even what appears to be indents for the tank bag, just like on the RT. I can seem wanting to go head to head against the BMW RT, but at least give it some original styling.

Any head on shots?

I do like the frontal "mad monkey" look. Irrespective of the obvious RT lookalike visage - it should be a first class GT.

Knowing Triumph, it will be a terrific bike.
Yeah, they do seem to have copied the RT a bit more than I would have liked. But it won't cost as much, I hope.

Ya, that's the same as the spy shots.. i guess the spy pics bike wasn't disguised very well!

Might as well keep this thread going and let the old one fade away, now that the bike has been officially unveiled.

Thanks for the head on shot..

Sounds awesome to me! Add some fender bling and hit the road.
