Heck I want one because all of my Triumphs since my 05 Rocket III have been fantastic bikes..easy to work on...fun to ride and great reliability...One warranty claim on a suspect TPS for my Rocket and that's it...Not bad for my 5 Trumpets...People always want to talk to me about Triumph and what a cool brand it is...

THAT is your deal breaker? I mean, I wouldn't buy another bike that doesn't have ABS, but at least that's something substantial!

The new Tiger Explorers have self cancelling turn signals. I'd be mightly surprised if the Trophy didn't.

All the writeups, reviews and specs I've seen for the new Trophy state it HAS got self-cancelling indicators (and that the feature can be turned off)

I still can't get my head wrapped around someone picking a Roadking if the Trophy doesn't have self canceling turn signals.
Harley is so far off my radar as to be non existant.
Heck, I'd rather ride a scooter. It would have to he made by Triumph though.

Having now seen the Trophy alongside an RT I am hugely impressed. Yes, the Trophy looked like the RT but, side by side, the RT looks like it's 2 generations old in comparison. The Triumph is definitely the more impressive looking bike and also (surprisingly) the better finished.

While the bike itself was hugely impressive, I would be a little concerned by how little interest that the UK launch seems to have created on this Forum and elsewhere. This either means that the market for super tourers has vanished or that Triumph, while they might have built a better bike than the RT, have simply screwed up on the marketing of it. If they get the marketing of this wrong, they'll have the fastest depreciating bike known to man

Either way, I'm sure that BMW will be annoyed at having built a better BMW RT than they can!

I went to the launch event. Not knowing the RT very well, I can't say how it compares, but it was very well finished and I'm very tempted.
The salesman know most of the answers posed to him.
YES it HAS got self cancelling indicators.
They don't cancel if stationary, and the time-out is extended if double pressed (like coming up to a motorway junction etc).
They said they had enough orders for the rest of the year, so its a 2013 registration for new orders, I guess.
Extras like alarm, GPS mount, heated grips, top box etc had prices quoted.
To me, these should be standard on the top model.
No "deals" like 0% finance yet, but its early days

He even started it up - sounded sweet, not loud at all.
I like the idea of a hydraulic clutch - no worries about sticking or snapped cables.
I sat on it and it didn't appear top-heavy at all.
I look forward to a test ride to see how it compares to my Honda Deauville.

I saw the new Trophy on Thursday evening at the dealer launch in Birmingham, and I'm very disapointed. It's huge, as big as a Goldwing, not much use to those of us that spend most of our journeys filtering between stationary cars.
At the very same dealer was a Moto Guzzi Norge, still a big bike but you can filter on a Norge.
At the moment I'm looking for a compact pannier system that would look good on a Daytona 675.

I rode it last week and posted a report on this forum. See "Visor Down.." below.

It is a great bike. Every bit as good as the BMW. Forget HD - not in the same league. And no, the (UK model at least) SE does not have self cancelling indicators. It has everything else you could wish for and if you reject it because of that, then you are sad indeed. You may be better off with a HD
