Triumph Trophy 900


I owned not the 900, but the Trophy, and apart from the cylinder, they are the same. a car/wall interface that in the … of my SprintST 955i and a wrist (aparently more than a break) I needed that didn’t put weight on my was reliable, had a light clutch and would take me to the south of and back whilst I regained strength, 2 up with luggage. I a clean 1998 example was immaculate and bought it.

Whilst it is top this meant off the bike was a bit laboursome, and slow speed especially U-turns, were But anything over 5mph, the was as stable as a barge. On still

The review says it is less planted in corners. This is The best part about the handling was the fact that you the bike in, and nothing short of a 15 hurricane will blow the off line! Stability on the move is the one that this bike has any other bike I have ridden. The steering is neautral and the footedness is unimpeachable.

I wore the front lower fairing in a of weeks, mainly because is the first thing to hit the deck and the ease with which you can the bike right over and leave it there indefinately it almost impossible not to.

The fit and finish on the is excellent. My 1998 example had so deep you could swim in it. left outside, and relatively by myself, with a quick off, it looked like No furrings, no rust, no pitting, no paint, not even scuff on the tank from leather It was kind to tyres and chains and although the weight of it does you have to check chain regularly, and stopping a lot of weight you need to use good brake

But the hoses were metal and power pretty good. shock needed hardening, and my fat arse, plus the wife and it really could have with being replaced for a aftermarket unit.

The performance was pretty impressive. was always a surfit of torque at any in any gear. No discernable power just pure linear delivery right from to red line.

The best way to describe the is turbine like. Open the and you’ll take off surprisingly Doesn’t matter what or revs, you’ll accellerate at the rate everytime.

The gearbox was apart from a notchy 1st and in over 2500 miles in 6 it never once had a single The seat is comfortable for hour hour, and it will happily sit on a all day with you coccooned in a bubble of free air. The only is the Triumph aftermarket touring is a bit rubbish. It keeps you dry, but wet and vision deteriorates, especially motorway grime, and stops in the heat when you want it.

The standard screen is a brazillion better.

It’s a bit thirsty you ride with the throttle open all the time, but then so is Used no oil at all and was utterly reliable. The 900 has one cylinder that gives the a different sound, and more and people have told me I found there was very difference, just the 1200 was and a bit faster. There’s really not in it.

They look the same, and are handsome in refined and understated I swopped the Trophy for a Blackbird for reasons.

1)The turning circle of the on a narrow angled drive at made me nearly drop the on many occasions, especially my weakened wrist.

2)The hated the pillion seat; it was like sitting on a baby perched up high behind the

3)I wanted something with a bit sportyness. Whilst the Blackbird exactly a sports bike, it is fast, handles well, is all day and will take me and the wife to the side of Germany and back ease.

The Trophy is definately to test ride if you are in the market for a dressed tourer and want different to a Pan European. Reliable, classy, different, uncommon and A very underrated and forgotten
