2013 Triumph Trophy SE

Designed with obsessive attention to detail, the 1215cc 3-cylinder shaft drive Trophy SE gives you the torque, performance and handling for a sublime riding experience. With the Trophy SE, electronically adjustable suspension and a sophisticated audio system comes as standard.

Whatever the distance, you’ll cover it in style and comfort; the generous, luxury seats and ergonomically designed riding position mean the miles melt away barely noticed.

The road becomes part of the bike, the bike part of you. The journey is not the way to where you want to go; it’s where you want to be.

 

NEW 1215cc TROPHY SE, MORE FEATURES, MORE TECHNOLOGY

The range-topping Trophy SE features a powerful integrated audio system, with Bluetooth technology, USB input and iPod/MP3 player compatibility. The SE also features adjustable electronic suspension from WP, which is operated via an ergonomically-designed switch cube. Riders select their preferred damping setting – Sport, Normal or Comfort – then combine it with the bike’s loading – Solo, Solo plus luggage or 2-up – and select and review their settings via a dot matrix LCD screen. The ease of use and functionality means that personalized settings can be easily adjusted at the press of a button. The SE also benefits from Triumph’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System, which adds a further layer of rider security while an integrated passenger 12V power supply allows additional accessories to be added.

Triumph Motorcycles is entering the touring market with the launch of the all-new shaft-drive Trophy. The Trophy is the third all-new model to be launched by the Hinckley manufacturer over the past 18 months, confirming Triumph’s continued investment in design, technology and engineering. The all-new Trophy is packed with a host of technology features, most of which are standard equipment.

At the heart of the Trophy is the same powerful, three-cylinder engine developed for the award-winning Tiger Explorer. The shaft driven, 1215cc triple delivers an impressive 132bhp at 8,900 revs and 89ft.lbs of torque at 6,450rpm, providing smooth, effortless power whenever it’s needed. To ensure the optimum levels of refinement, the engine features a counter-rotating balancer shaft to smooth out crankshaft vibrations.

A torsional damping system is used to transfer power from the gearbox to the shaft drive through a sprung bevel gear. In addition to this, a metalastic shaft drive is used which allows a certain amount of compliance in the shaft assembly. These combined features help to provide a refined drivetrain and overall chassis performance which ensures power is delivered in a smooth and controllable manner.

An extensive testing and development program has honed the chassis to provide true touring comfort while still connecting the rider with the road. Ride-by-wire technology provides both traction control and cruise control functionality, as well as optimizing engine efficiency and fuel economy. Great effort has been made to optimize weather and wind protection with aerodynamically enhanced fairings. The electrically-adjustable screen can raise nearly 6.5” and comes with a memory function that automatically adjusts to your last pre-set position when you restart the bike. Rider and pillion passenger comfort is further enhanced with a range of seat options including heated front and rear seats. The rider seat height can additionally be adjusted between 30.3” and 31.1”.

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, center stand, rider seat height adjustment, lockable cockpit storage box with 12v power socket, a 6.6 gallon fuel tank and Triumph’s unique Dynamic Luggage System (TDLS), all as standard.

The Triumph Dynamic Luggage System helps maintain chassis balance by decoupling the mass from the chassis allowing each pannier to move up to a 5 degree arc therefore optimizing stability and refinement. With 31 liters of storage capacity per pannier, additional storage can be gained with the optional 55 liter, powered “Plug and Play” top box. The “Plug and Play” feature allows easy fitting and removal without the need to connect and disconnect cables or wires. It features a 12v socket on the inside to charge a camera, phone or any other electrical device while on the move.

The Trophy enjoys extended 10,000-mile service intervals, with major services only needed every 20,000 miles.

The new Trophy will get its first public unveiling at Triumph Tridays in Neukirchen, Austria on June 22-24, 2012, and will make a further appearance at the Triumph Live event at Mallory Park, Leicestershire, U.K., which takes place August 31 – September 2, 2012.

2013 Triumph Trophy SE Key Features

1215cc 3-cylinder engine with shaft drive
Fine-tuned for the smoothest ride possible, the thrilling 1215cc, 3-cylinder engine gives you power and torque when you want it and exhilaration when you need it. This spirited engine delivers excitement on demand; no need to wait for the revs to rise or be forced to kick down a gear at the wrong time. You’ll feel it and you’ll hear it as the infamous Triumph triple delivers inimitable, spine tingling sound. Wherever you want to be, the triple puts you there – giving you total control and the confidence to ride to your full potential.

• The 132bhp, 1215cc 3-cylinder engine pumps out 89 ft.lbs of torque, which spreads the power throughout the rev range giving you effortless acceleration and smooth cruising

• The tough shaft drive system means worry-free touring.

 

Electronic suspension – lin ked ABS brakes
Ride-by-wire electronic throttle system, clear, easy to use control panel and, on the Trophy SE, electronically adjustable suspension, makes it simple to set and make adjustments to suit your exact preferences. So no matter how far you travel, you’ll go the distance confidently and comfortably. On the Trophy, you’ll never hesitate to ride past the last streetlight on the edge of town.

• Switchable traction control keeps wheel slip to a minimum by reading the speed of both wheels and adjusting performance

• Cruise control makes long highway stretches comfortable and optimises fuel economy

• Linked brakes mean front brakes are partially activated by the rear for increased safety

 

Audio system including Bluetooth® and iPod ® compatibility
The Trophy SE’s superb audio system immerses both you and your passenger in sound. Bluetooth® and iPod® technology connects you to radio, music and phone.

• 2 x 20W speakers with digital signal processing and 3-band (bass, mid-range and treble) equalisation

• Automatic volume control (AVC) adjusts volume based on bike speed

• USB port, flash drive, MP3 player support

• iPhone® and iPod® compatible (selected devices)

• FM/MW/LW radio tuner with 15 pre-sets per band

• RDS functionality, alternative frequencies (AF) traffic alerts (TA) regional tuning (RG)

• Programme type tuning (PTY)

• Auxiliary input allowing sat nav to play through the audio system

• Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR giving output to up to two compatible head sets

• SiriusXM language

 

Heated seats and grips
With optional thermostatically-controlled heated seats and grips, whatever the weather, wherever you’re going, both you and your passenger will ride in comfort.

 

Seats
• Thermostatically-controlled, bespoke heated seats

• Selectable temperature settings

• High quality, high efficiency heating elements

• Available for both rider and pillion seats

 

Grips
• Internally-wired heated grips designed specifically for Triumph’s ride-by-wire throttle so as not to increase diameter
• Dual temperature settings selectable via handlebar-mounted push buttons

 

Electronically adjustable windscreen
The Trophy’s windscreen isn’t just designed to protect you from wind and rain at all speeds. It’s cleverer than that; it actually remembers its last position. So, when you start the bike, you don’t have to waste time readjusting it. Even the mirrors and foot positions have been intelligently designed to protect your hands and feet, keeping them dry and comfortable.

 

Triumph Dynamic Luggage System
However much luggage you take with you, it will feel as if you’re travelling light. Triumph’s dynamic luggage system allows a small amount of independent movement which increases stability and doesn’t compromise the chassis’ dynamic performance.

In fixed luggage systems, large loads cause small movements and vibrations in the chassis – these can actually de-stabilise the bike and cause weaving. The Trophy’s system prevents this, keeping the bike stable. This makes the ride much more comfortable for riders and passengers.
