2013 Triumph Trophy SE unveiled
Triumph have released details and some pics of the new Trophy, a touring bike powered by the British company’s 1215cc three-cylinder engine, which produces 132bhp and 120Nm of torque. ‘Fine-tuned for the smoothest ride possible, the thrilling 1215cc 3-cylinder engine gives you power and torque when you want it and exhilaration when you need it. This spirited engine delivers excitement on demand; no need to wait for the revs to rise or be forced to kick down a gear at the wrong time. You’ll feel it and you’ll hear it as the infamous triumph triple delivers its inimitable, spine tingling sound,’ claims a press release from Triumph.
The engine transfers its power to the Trophy’s rear wheel via shaft drive and Triumph have gone all high-tech with this touring bike, which features linked brakes with ABS, ride-by-wire electronically controlled throttle, switchable traction control and electronically adjustable suspension. There’s an onboard audio system that is Bluetooth and iPod compatible and there’s a USB port, flash drive and MP3 player support. The Trophy also has thermostatically controlled heated seats and grips (optional), an electrically adjustable windscreen that’s supposed to provide excellent weather protection, and a host of optional accessories including custom-designed hard and soft luggage.
