|I thought their weight was the same.....Kawi=584.3...TR=584.2|
I went to the International Motorcycle Show in Atlanta a week or so ago. Saw and sat on the new Trophy. Was okay. Seemed luxo-tourer big compared to my '08 Sprint. While in the Triumph area a local Triumph dealer who was working the show started to chat me up.
I asked about an updated Sprint GT with the Trophy's electrically adjustable suspension, the 1215cc engine and the Explorer's ride by wire throttle w/ cruise control. He said and I quote "its not in the blueprint".
So, it seems if I want to trade the ST, it comes down to a parade-float sized Trophy with adjustable suspension or a an "adventure" tourer. Methinks the Multistrada may be a better alternative. I just don't understand Triumph's reasoning. It would seem to me a new Sprint would slot in perfectly between the Explorer and Trophy. Disappointing...
