On my 15 yr model xcx there is a separate 'on' button that u must press first.

They have changed the switch on the '17 model. The cruise control works differently now and the button you and I use to turn it on is now the hazard light flasher button.

This is the new switch (same as the Explorer I believe)



Without having the benefit of the manual I would be pressing the bottom left corner beside where it says On to activate it then pressing the same spot again to set the speed.
The right side adjusts the speed up and down once the cruise control is running.

FWIW I think the Triumph Cruise control is fantastic I use mine all the time especially in areas where speed cameras are prevalent. I even run one freeway section where I get on at 100kph slow to 80kph through a tunnel then go back to 100kph all by using the + and - buttons and not touching the throttle.

Doesn't do that on my 2017 XRT, just 2 quick presses of the bottom right corner

That makes no sense at all based on the markings on the switch assembly.

It kind of does, my On is a separate button, then Set and Resume as in the picture.  Looks like on newer models to turn it on you have to hit the bottom button twice (next to the On legend), then its Set and Resume as normal?  Not sure why they got rid of the nice on-off button though, seemed to do its job quite nicely! :)

Whether it makes sense or not is irrelevant. My new xrt works very nicely by pressing the bottom switch twice for "on", no matter which part of the button is pressed. :125:

The old system worked perfectly well.  Seems they love changing things just because they can.  At least it's not as much of a stretch with your thumb to hit the button now I guess.  I wouldn't have minded if the 'on' button was on the left switchblock myself so your not half taking your hand off the throttle to activate it.

And I agree K1W1 the cruise is a fantastic feature, I use it regularly as well.  Great for keeping the licence in tact.  This is the first bike I've owned with cruise as a stock feature and after using it I wouldn't want to ever not have it in the future.

It's not rocket science  :015:

The top oblong button has a + sign, that is for increasing the CC speed.
To the left of that button its shows a little picture of a speedo and below it it says "ON" one press to turn it on and the second to set the speed at that present time.
The bottom oblong button says " SET / - "  two quick presses sets it to ON and it has a dual purpose of decreasing the CC speed


Just done 300 miles today and used it loads of times

Hi I had the same problem. If you look at the lower button you will see if you press it pops other a bit this is on then hit the set - switch. When you press it again it stays in that's off. It's obvious once you press the button whilst looking at it whilst stationary

The 2017 set up is completely different, the switch always returns the the same position after activating CC
