Triumph Germany extends the 2 year standard warranty with an insurance based 2 year extension
Same in Spain: 2+2

Is the extra 2 years warranty something you pay for as part of the original purchase price? Can't see that it is a direct Triumph warranty as they would be obliged to provide the same warranty terms and period throughout EU members.

No, you don't pay for it.

How can they do that in Germany and Spain and not in other EU countries? I've no idea, sorry.

No extra money for the warranty, the additional 2 years are insurance based meaning an insurance company is covering that so from a legal point of view that insurance will have to pay if you have any issues covered in that period and not Triumph themselves.
Statutory warranty can be different throughout the EU as far as I know they cannot go under EU legislation but can extend it. In this case it is not strictly a warranty but an insurance thrown in for free so its part of the price tactics.

So one question is, are the therms and conditions the same then, I wouldn't be surprised there's limitations !?

I just watched "The Missenden Flyer" review both models. Glad to see a nice pair of Michelin Road 5s on one of them, instead of the dreadful Pirelli Angel.

You raise a good point there. To be honest, I havent bothered to read the terms and conditions of the warranty itself or those of the insurance based extension (maybe Derchef1962 has). I cant be bothered, frankly. But, yeah, you may be right...

I spend a considerable amount of time during his F900 XR review yelling at the TV screen when he continually said that the bike he was riding had no pannier mounts and the two largest pannier mounts ever fitted to any bike anywhere were clearly visible in every shot of the bike. It doesn't take much for people in his position to loose credibility and his went south in a big way with me.
It is very easy for people posting YouTube videos to put a little apology on the screen when they accidentally say something that is wrong.
