Seats: Thermostatically controlled, bespoke heated seatsSelectable temperature settings,

Dual temperature settings selectable via mounted colour 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.

Benefits:
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.

Quotes

Cycleworld ---- "Practically everything that is adjustable on the Trophy can be configured using the designated buttons on the left handlebar switchpod in conjunction with the LCD information screen between the tach and speedo. This includes the screen display itself, which provides more information than those of any other motorcycle currently on the market and can be quickly set up to display the specific info you want in a choice of locations on the screen."

Ultimatemotorcycling ---- "Get going too fast on the 2013 Triumph Trophy SE and the linked ABS brakes are magic. Squeeze the front brake-which isn’t grabby, though it is surprisingly strong for a tourer-and three of the four front calipers grip the twin front discs. Touch the rear brake lightly, and only the rear disc is used. Push harder on the rear brake pedal and pressure-moderated by a Proportion Control Valve-sends some hydraulic fluid to the fourth front caliper."

Motorcycle ---- "Like the Explorer, there’s gobs of torque from basement to roof top. A handful of throttle at 35 mph in sixth gear generates forward thrust without a shudder or knock. Reserve amounts of torque are abundant no matter the speed or gear, the drawback being the omission of a horsepower rush of acceleration. But easy to manipulate power wherever and whenever you want, the Trophy delivers in spades."
