TROPHY WITH FACTORY FIT ACCESSORIES, LIMITED AVAILABILITY
With the success of the Tiger Explorer Launch Pack Model, a limited number of Trophies have been built with factory fit accessories.
In addition to all of the great standard features on the Trophy SE, these models will come equipped with a top box (including color panels and sliding carriage kit), heated grips, heated rider and passenger seats, a high touring screen, and foot air deflectors.
These will be priced with just a $1,500 premium, for an MSRP of $20,499.
As these are extremely limited in nature, they will be made available for pre-solds only on a first come, first served basis. They can either be new orders, or switched from existing forward orders that have been placed.

Our local dealer got their first Trophy in this week. It's the regional reps bike but will be available for demo rides if the snow melts.

The seat in the pictures is the low seat in the low position. Todd (the dealer) said the standard seat was about an inch taller. The fairing is a bit wide for me, it looks like it's going to provide too much weather protection. That could end up being the deal killer.

BTW, in person it looks much more like an FJR than an RT.

Thanks for the info Dakez and 3putt.

Anybody with really long legs and arms sat on this yet??? Looks like good wind protection. Watching this closely and wishing it was $15K not $20 but good packages may close the gap. I haven't seen one in person yet.

I'm 6'3" with a 34" inseam. With the "low" seat in the high position the ergos were fine for me, very much like my RT. With the standard seat in the high position there might even be less knee bend than my RT.

6'7", 37" inseam, long arms. I don't know what seat at what level was on the Trophy at the IMS, but it was exactly as I'd feared and commented on here before: Manufacturers' styling departments insist on those pronounced knee notches in the tank/fairing design and a long legged rider can't get his thighs and knees under them. Wasn't even close.
While I will have to bow to the manufacturers' research departments here, these bikes make little marketing sense to me. This bike is HUGE (this from a Rocket 111 owner), so I would think those less than large would be at least slightly intiminated by it, but if you are just a little too large you don't fit on it. Seems to me it narrows even more the narrow demographic that would consider an expensive sport tourer.

Thanks guys, I am a 36+ inseam and can flat foot anything, on wheels pretty much. More than one bike got left behind because I couldn't curl into it. Those leg pockets look perfect if a guy can tuck into em.

I thought all SE's had heated grips and seats?

Cannot wait to hear how much you like your new toy. 20 deg and you still didn't ride her home

75 mph with 25 mph gusts makes a cold miserable ride!

I took a demo SE out for nice test ride...... terrific bike. Fits me almost perfect in its stock form. I rode about 45-50 miles in various conditions. Lots of smooth power. Tight handling. The radio is pointless, but I'm not bothered with listening to the radio while riding.
For 20k though, that's a lot of money I don't have.
I was that close to trading my '11 Tiger XC for it. That close. It's definitely on the short list for my next bike though. Perhaps in another year or so.
