New Trophy Spied!
 
Oooo, she's a Big Girl!

Looks like she can dance, though!

This, from Motorcycle News:

Finished Triumph Trophy spied - | Motorbike reviews | Latest Bike Videos | MCN

Looks like someone put a dorm refrigerator on the back!

Sarnali, you got enough garage for two "big'n's?"

No, Cobie and I have decided to part as friends and have our Vegas wedding annuled. She's just too busy with her film career, and I couldn't get her to wear her "Avengers" costume around the house once the knot was tied.

So the Triumph Trophy..what segement is that aimed at? They have the Sprint and the 1050 Tiger...are they going after the "Ultra Glide" types?

Cool you can ride with your dog as they put the crate on back.

Damn, it really looks like a BMW! For that matter, so does the new Explorerer.

They had a Trophy for years. It was the Sprint's 'big brother,' at least in the 'new' Triumph model line.

I'm thinking the Sprint is about to go away. The ST is not offered in the States, and the Sprint GT hasn't set any sales records. And it'll be redundant when the Trophy appears.

Maybe they will end the "Tiger 1050;" making it the new Sprint. Wait and see, I guess.

Sorry to hear that you and Cobie didn't work out...

They'll probably drop the 1050 Tiger which will only leave the 800 and 1200 option. Too bad the 1200 is almost 100lbs heavier than the 1050. Of course since no one rides ATs off road it's moot. The weight difference is enough to completely turn me off to the 1200. It's not like the power difference makes a real world difference. The weight difference does.

Yeah, but this one is going to be a triple.

that's ok, I'm partial to twins but triples work for me too. I'm more concerned with comfort and weather protection than engine configuration.
