– 2001 Triumph Trophy

For riders looking to travel long distances in comfort and style, with plenty of performance and enjoyment along the way, Triumph’s Trophy tourer has plenty to offer – with a choice of 1180cc four-cylinder or 885cc three-cylinder power plant.

The trademark Trophy blend of excellent weather protection from a highly efficient full fairing, roomy riding position, generous dual-seat and top-quality integrated luggage system makes either model unbeatable for touring pleasure, whether solo or heavily loaded with a passenger and luggage.

Both engines are well suited to the Trophy, as they are noted for strong performance at low and medium engine speeds and yet also produce plenty of power at higher revs. The big 1180cc unit delivers a massive 104N.m (77ft.lb) of torque at just 5000rpm whilst the 855cc engine combines

smooth-revving power with addictive three-cylinder character.

For a dedicated tourer the Trophy is a very capable all-rounder, not least thanks to its outstanding sporting ability. A rigid steel frame, high-quality suspension and generous ground clearance combine to make Triumph’s long-distance machine great fun on a twisty road.

Thoughtful detailing enhances the bike’s appeal. From the powerful and visually striking chrome-rimmed twin headlamps, via the generously large fuel tank, to the colour co-ordinated and impressively capacious panniers – also available to match the new Sunset Red paint scheme – the Trophy is as efficient as it is enjoyable to ride.
