Triumph Trophy, 1200cc, (R)


Bought this last year for buttons it was being traded in at the bike where I work, kept it for six then gave it to my brother in

Huge amount of bike for the and excellent value considering can now be had for around £800 to £1200.

comfortable over long I did 450 miles in one hit from Stuttgart to the side of the Czech republic and went out drinking and dancing night! Fuel economy 40 to 45 mpg for everyday riding with 50mpg on long motorway giving at least 200 miles to a normally and much more going gently. The fuel and performance can both be altered by the size of the sprockets; various are available and quite cheap.

Chain wear is average with other bikes I owned, but I’m a big fan of Scotoilers more or less do away chain maintenance. Servicing are not bad, though Triumph fully synthetic oil which costs. Valve clearances need adjusted when but if they do pay a Triumph mechanic as it is a lot with the correct tool and you the full range of shims.

Likewise, don’t try to change the air yourself unless you are veeeery and have long flexible it actually needs the carbs off to get the old one out and getting the carb rubbers on is a nightmare! Don’t change it for a KN, make the bike run like unless you get the jets changed- Rear suspension links all grease nipples so no need for stripping (!).

The fairing good protection with toes, knees and shoulders wet at speed though I found the up screen my one was fitted with a bit of a head bob over 80mph.

Front brakes are generally good, though as with of this age of Triumphs there is a lot of travel before anything even though it comes braided hoses as standard. is easily cured by slipping a washer between the end of the master pushrod and the … of the brake to act as a spacer. Back brake does it’s job and is generally but can start to bind if it’s not clean.

Suspension is fairly soft, tourer than sport, but firm enough to get me safely the Nurburgring! Handling is slow and if a little top heavy but it has freight stability on the Autobahn. It needs a hand and positive throttle town, especially round if you don’t want it to feel it is toppling over, but it never dangerous or scary.

Performance the triple engine is pretty considering the weight it is pushing about 250kg with a tank) and it has excellent stomp for without having to change The sound is fabulous.

As with all older Triumphs the stand was beginning to sink a (on the first ones the stand bend, with the later the mounts deform) so I had to be careful using it that the bike left with both still on the ground and the bike Also, the sidestand mount bends under the weight so the ends up at a ridiculous angle of eventually.

Not expensive to replace (I it’s about £60 brand and better to do before it snaps overnight and the bike lands on its Mirrors on this bike are compared to modern tourers, but better than a lot of mid 90’s On the whole?

Buy one.
