The 885 engine was also used in the '95-'98 Tiger. The Trophy also still uses the carbureted engine. The Trophy is being discontinued for '04, however. (please, Triumph, use the stillborn superbike engine in a new version of the Trophy, please!?)

It was discontinued for a couple of reasons. The steel-spine frame and engine, although very strong, were also quite porky and top heavy. The new frame(s) carrry their weight lower, and the FI engine and displacement bump produce more power that's smoother, too.

I have 50K+ mi. on my '96 Trophy 9 and it's still going strong. A gently used Tiger wouldn't be a bad addition to the stable, tho. :)
