Extended service intervals?

Triumph major service intervals are at 12k, minor at 6k. Could MCN clarify whether it's a minor at 10k and majors at 20k, it could be a bonus.

Working class!

This is not working class territory, if you want a cheap tourer buy a gsx 1250 or an xj 600 with panniers it like complaining I can't afford a new BMW x5. Besides compared to the fjr at 15k or a pan it's very competitive, still can't afford one

It looks like an owl as already noted, way to much plastic on the front.  You will always gets critics for a new bike, I want triumph to bring a good loking bike out  but on this ocassion it`s a shit looking bike.

Finally somebody has pointed out that shaft drive is "virtually maintenance free". I get so bored with reading that shaft drive is maintenance free. As if there's such a thing as a moving part taking transmission loads that wouldn't wear out.

Not sure what "working class" has to do with this. If you cannot afford one get something else or move to North Korea. As for comparing the relative cost of a car and bike it's simply pointless. A 59 Bonneville cost more than a Ford Prefect so anyone who bought one was a fool? The Trophy is big, fat, heavy and dull but so what? if it's your cup of tea great. I hope Triumph sell loads of them

Well

it's big, ugly and heavy (do touring bikes need to be heavy?) but if this sells in the Americas and turns in a good profit for Triumph that will finally allow them to build a superbike then here's hoping it's a success for them.

Like the ugly fat bird at the office

Hmmmm, bit porky, not to mention 14k. Is it better than my Tiger 800? Certainly not 7k better. Is it better than the Explorer which is 3k cheaper? Doubt it as they are the same bike essentially. I suppose for fans of the larger touring bike, it will make a nice choice problem between the similarly porky BMW's, Honda Pan or similar

Yes, for a week's riding holiday where you're doing 4-500 miles per day in all weathers, it will be better than your Tiger 800. Although quite why you'd want to compare a full-dress tourer to a mid-range adventure 'bike, I'm not really sure. It all depends on where, how and at what speed you prefer to ride, surely? The K1600 starts at about £18K when I last looked, and weighs 348 kg, so the Triumph looks a better balance to me. The top of the fairing looks like a R1250RT, but so what? It's a completely different engine configuration to that 'bike, so it's hardly a copy is it?? Not really my sort of 'bike for now, but for a practical, top-spec big tourer it looks like a great option compare to what else is on offer.
