Surprisingly quick, great fun and very comfortable
Misfiring, when accelerating. Found not to be carburetter problems. Eventually diagnosed as an ignition coil breaking down.
Great value for money, comfortable tourer.
Surprisingly good acceleration, although mpg is not as good as many modern bikes of the same type.
Also top heavy. This takes some getting used to, but once moving, this bike is a dream to ride.
I had a skittish 600cc Suzuki Bandit previously, and although it was a very reliable bike, it was not very comfortable on long runs, nor did it give any protection from the elements.
The Trophy gives excellent protection, is less prone to cross wind issues and is what it is, ie a big heavy powerful touring bike. If you are not worried about mpg, then these bikes are a lot of fun for low cost.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
