Spanish magazine Motociclismo has acquired photos of what it says will be a new 2013 Triumph Trophy 1200 sport-tourer.

According to Motociclismo, the 2013 Triumph Trophy 1200 uses many of the same components as the recently launched Triumph Tiger Explorer, including its 1215cc inline Triple engine and shaft drive.

The Trophy 1200 will likely also get traction control and ABS like the Tiger Explorer, as well as touring-oriented niceties such as an adjustable windscreen, heated grips, panniers and cruise control.

Like most Triumph models, the Trophy’s name goes far back in the company’s history, dating back to the TR5 Trophy in 1948. The last Hinckley-era Triumph Trophy was the four-cylinder Trophy 1200, produced 1990-2004.

The official launch of the 2013 Triumph Trophy 1200 is expected for later this year, likely close to Intermot in October or EICMA in November.
