2013 Triumph Trophy

Jun 26, 2012 View Comments by

Triumph is continuing its impressive run by introducing another model aimed to compete with BMW. The Trophy has been developed at the same time as the Tiger Explorer 1200, but features completely different body work. The Explorer now competes head-on with BMW’s R1200GS, while the Trophy will surely take a bite out of BMW’s luxury touring market of the R1200RT and K1600GT(L). North American models will be available at the end of January 2013.
