1992 Triumph Trophy 900[edit]

The 1992 MY Triumph Trophy 900 is a touring machine which shares all its traits and engineering with its bigger sibling, the Trophy 1200, except for the engine, and the sticker that says "900" instead of "1200" of course.

Following Hinckley's "modular design" concept, the 1993 MY Triumph Trophy 900 shares most of its innards with the other Triumph models in the 900cc category, the thing setting it apart being its engine mapping, optimized for more mid-range torque and, of course, the bodywork and comfort department, to make it a true touring machine.

Whether one decides to use it on his daily commute to and from work, a weekend stroll through the countryside or a transcontinental vacation, the Trophy 900 is up for the task.

1994 Triumph Trophy 900[edit]

The 1994 MY Triumph Trophy 900 is a bulky touring bike, particularly suited for those riders with a bigger inseam and arm length. But once you get it on the road, it will leave you the impression that you're atop a mid-sized superbike.

Its four-stroke, liquid-cooled, 885cc, transverse three cylinder engine produces 98 horsepower and 83 Nm of torque, which is more than enough to make it's massive 217kg dry weight race across the motorway.

Coming standard with color-matching, hard saddlebags, it can carry impressive loads even when riding two-up, without affecting the engine's performance.
