Default Triumph Trophy

Have had a hankering after these since they revised them a few years back, but why are they not more popular, looking at Autotrader in the UK, there's only about 40 total showing, considering how many R1200RT's etc that show up, I don't understand.

Always had a hankerin fer the previous model, 1200 in BRG. Although the 900 was said to be a smoother more agile motor.

The 1200 is a bit of a turbine whereas the triple has a lot more character, better fuel, sound, lighter and great torque. You'd always want a bit more power I suppose, but the 900 is grand for what it is. I can have a full conversation (with myself) and no breeze behind the screen at any speed. The BMW RT would be it's only rival, if you're a big fellah, its better than the BMW.
I will be looking for a new model methinks next year (or an LT) as herself is too small sitting behind me and can't see anything.
