Triumph Trophy Wallpaper

Triumph took a huge step in the adventure market last year with the release of its 1215cc Tiger Explorer, a machine designed to compete directly with the likes of BMW’s R1200GS, Yamaha’s Super Tenere, and Ducati’s Multistrada, to name a few.

And for 2013, the Hinkley-based brand is releasing another new motorcycle to take on the sport-touring market – the Triumph Trophy.

The Triumph Trophy, which is only available stateside in the SE version that features electronically adjustable suspension and a sophisticated audio system, arrives with the same 1215cc inline three that powers its adventure sibling, the Tiger Explorer. But the Trophy’s version is tuned for better street manners.

The liquid-cooled, 12-valve DOHC engine features ride-by-wire electronics, and produces 132 horsepower @ 8900 rpm, and 89 ft. lbs. of torque @ 6450 rpm. And just like BMW’s top sport tourers, the Triumph Trophy hooks this power to ground via a six-speed transmission and final shaft drive.

The Trophy features an aluminum, twin-spar frame with a single-sides swingarm, 43mm upside-down WP forks, WP monoshock, and rolls on five-spoke, cast-aluminum wheels. Stopping the machine are twin 320mm floating disk brakes squeezed by Nissin four-piston calipers, and a single 282mm disc out back squeezed by a two-piston sliding caliper. The Triumph Trophy and Trophy SE both feature linked ABS, which is non-switchable (linked means front brakes are partially activated by the rear brake).

The Trophy and Trophy SE also feature switchable traction control, which keeps wheel slip to a minimum by analyzing the speed of both wheels and adjusting performance, and electronic cruise control as standard items.
