With the growing popularity of larger touring and adventure motorcycles in the early 90’s, Triumph decided to throw their hat in the ring with the production of their newest line of bikes – the Triumph Trophy. First shown in 1990 at the Cologne Motorcycle Show, the Trophy became the first motorcycle to come out of the newly built Hinkley factory, offered in both a 900 and 1200 model. While the 900 shared similarities in engine displacement to models that Triumph already offered, such as the Sprint, Daytona, and Tiger 900, the 1200 was a reimagining of the tried-and-true motor. Triumph went with an additional cylinder to boost the capacity of the 1200, while also including new features such as twin balance shafts. The 4 valve DOHC (double overhead camshaft) engine was good for 108 bhp and 77 lb-ft of torque, making it a smooth and capable engine for long miles in the saddle. Taking inspiration from the design choices in earlier BSA-Triumph models, the idea of the 1200 was to develop a motorcycle with an engine and frame that was interchangeable with various models Triumph would be offering. The same platform was offered in the Daytona 1200, which was introduced a year after the Trophy in 1992.

The bike was held together by a single large diameter rigid steel frame, and allowed Triumph to use the engine as a stressed member. The Trophy came equipped with front and rear Nissin disc brakes, the 1200 came with 43mm forks, and a Kayaba rear monoshock. With names such as ‘British Racing Green’, the 1200 came in a variety of options for liveries, while offering the same performance package across all models.

The 1995 model year was the first to see major revisions, mainly in improving many complaints about the weight of the motorcycle. Timeless 2 Wheels states in their article about the Trophy: “It was at this point the engines were revised and looked at to make sure they were as light, efficient and smooth as possible. As Motorcycle News writes in their review on the Triumph Trophy, it is “a proper, big (and tall) old school tourer with decent ability and classy touches.” 1995 was also the first year that the Trophy 1200 was made available in the US.
