Well, there were rumors about the famous Triumph Trophy 1200 SE model being discontinued after the 2016 model. No upgrades, no new models what so ever.
However, we decided to make a brief review of their previous models (2014-2016) to provide you with an overview about this magnificent touring motorcycle in case you decided to go for it.
2016 Triumph Trophy 1200 SE Review.
The Triumph Trophy motorcycle is loaded with a liquid-cooled, 12 valve, DOHC, and a 3 inline cylinder engine. This 1215 cc beast produces 132 horsepower at the 8,900 rpm. The engine is generally smooth providing you with an 88 pound-feet torque at 6,450 rpm.
Transmission & Drivetrain.
The Trophy uses a manual 6-speed transmission system that transfers your engine’s power to the rear wheel through a final shaft drive system.
Chassis & Suspension.
Aluminum chassis and swingarm are installed on this touring motorcycle for your convenience and weight reduction purposes (which you desperately need in a touring bike). Moreover, the 17-inch wheel rims are made from aluminum alloy to keep the over dry weight minimal (649 pounds approximately).
An electronic WP suspension package (with the ability of a single button adjustment) is now on the 2016 triumph trophy motorcycle. The 43 mm inverted front fork works in harmony with the rear mono shock one providing you with a 5-inch traveling space (each). Three adjustment modes are available for your convenience (sport, normal, and comfort).
Did we mention that the motorcycle can take up to 527 pounds of weight combined between rider, passenger, and cargo?

You can't really judge a motorcycle by its specs only, Can You?
The Triumph Trophy is no easy bike to stop. That’s why the manufacturer provided you with dual front 320 mm front discs, four-pot Nissin calipers and a rear 282 mm disc with twin pot caliper. This touring motorcycle is loaded with ABS and a built-in breaking balance system.
Triumph Trophy Fuel Consumption.
The motorcycle has a range of 300 miles and consumption of 35mpg/city, and a 58.2 mpg if you are riding at 56 mph. Last but not least, if you decided to go at 75mph, the consumption will be 42.9 mpg.
Technology & Design.
The 2016 Triumph Trophy 1200 SE has a remarkable sport/touring design. The front is really sporty, yet it combines the comfort of medium seated touring motorcycles.
Seat height is adjustable, integrated the audio and Bluetooth system, traction control, tire pressure monitoring, and cruise control too. Also, the front screen can be adjusted electronically. In other words, all comfort-related technologies are available on this bike.
