Ugo & Valerio at EICMA 2012 in Milan: bikes and...!
« on: November 18, 2012, 12:08:52 pm »
Yeah!
There were also few bikes in there... and lots of "girls" (don't let me use other names for them ;) )
Valerio has been the camera man and I added few comments for our "favourite"  :shoot: bike!
Great day with Valerio at a great event: we left it very tired (and with still 4 hours of train to go back home) but happy! :)

Here is the video
2012 / Eicma 70° Esposizione internazionale del Motociclo.


And here a little bonus taken with my smartphone...
Notice the new MV Agusta Rivale

The tongue on the tank should have been when the blonde was on the Kawi though...  ;)

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

No! >:(
It's the poor camera quality and the lights: they were actually light brown (beige) ;)
I noticed it as well...  ;D

Nice video! Triumph opened recently a factory in Brazil and a friend is interested to get a Trophy, but it is not yet available. Can you tell me about your impression, even at a new topic or by e-mail? Thanks.

Easy:
- the perceived overall quality is not that high
- looking at the forks from above while sitting on the bike you see them surrounded by....nothing, just a big hole in the fairing and you can see the asphalt running underneath.
- The saddlebags and the top case are moving, intentionally, to counteract the vibrations, but they look as if you're about to lose them!

I talked about it to a Triumph employee there and he assured me and explained that this system is better than having them stuck and fixed to the frame.
I answered that it's very expensive to pay an employee for staying standing close to any Trophy exposed just to reassure people passing by and touching the bags that they're not about to drop!
Perhaps he was right, the system is the best, but it's perceived as if saddlebags and top case are loose... thus I, as a potential Customer, would skip it and try another touring bike instead ;)
