2019 XRT Standard Equipment
« on: May 13, 2020, 09:30:10 PM »
Does anyone know where to find a detailed list of what is included as Standard Equipment on the 2019 XRT? Specifically, is a center stand supposed to be included?

You could try going on to a Triumph website and trying to add it as an accessory to the XRT. If its already included it won't be there or you cant add it.

Thanks, yes I did that and you are right. However, I have seen a 2018 Triumph spreadsheet type listing that compares what is included on different models. Not sure where to find it for 2019.

Here in Australia the web site picture shows the XRT with a centre stand and you can't order one as an option. Other models have pictures of bikes without centre stands and you can order one as an option.
The XRT is the top of the line XR model it has always had a centre stand AFAIK. The XRX used to have one as standard but that disappeared in about 2018.

I didn't think there were any changes from the 2018 to the 2019 models?

If not the 2019 will have a centre stand.

Have a look on Triumph website it states that on "core features" of the xrt that it has a centre stand.

Definitely. I have a 19 XRT bought new and it was a standard item on this model. Not an extra or special incentive deal to promote sales.

Thanks everyone. I was sure the center stand is supposed to be included. I bought a 2019 XRt and didn't realize it wan't there until I got the bike home and went to put put it on the stand. Called the dealer and they started dragging their feet, as in "that's not included","I'll have to check with the parts department", blah blah blah. I'm holding their feet to the fire and want to have hard evidence before I have to go to a higher level for satisfaction. Dealership was bought-out and new people are more like sleazy used car salesmen.

One possible explanation, and not unheard of, is that a (probably regular/good) customer wanted one either 'in a rush' or 'out of stock' at Triumph and they 'borrowed' one off a showroom floor bike with the intention of replacing it as soon as the part was available/received ..... and then in error (or not) didn't replace it?  :084: :027:

Yes, I'm sure that's what happened but I believe they thought they could get away with as well. I loved the owners at the old dealership who knew how to do customer service. Not so now.
