Side mounted number plate missing!

Just browsing the Triumph configurator and noticed the side mounted number plate is no longer available as an option! Is this temporary or have Triumph removed it completely?
I知 not particularly worried as I have it anyway and have reverted back to the plate mounting off the rear mudguard. Maybe I値l put mine on eBay!
Just wondering why Triumph have removed it from the configurator.

Must be an EU law thing.

The SIDE MOUNTED NUMBER PLATE
PART NUMBER A9750730 still appears on the USA Triumph config page.

Doesnエt really make a difference to anyone, as third party manufacturers also make side mounted plate kits (e.g Wunderkind and BikeBros...)

Unless I知 missing something (on Triumph's UK website) it looks like the short rear mudguard and US tail lights have gone too!

Yes mate, they have! Seems all the US (non UK homologated) items are disappearing.

Could it be a stock issue? I checked another parts place that I use and although it has them as US only, it says they're out of stock. I've emailed World of Triumph as well to see what the score is.

I was hoping they had seen sense and stopped selling those side abominations.
