'Brutal Beauty' bobber
      #661590 - 10/11/16 08:33 AM

Not sure if this is second hand information or not but I've just looked on the Triumph website and there is a live stream of what they're calling 'Brutal Beauty' launch on 19 October 7pm GMT

There is a tank picture and reflected is what looks the bike's shadow showing a bobber-style single seat.

I imagine this is the bike from spy shots posted recently

Just put 'Triumph Brutal Beauty' in YouTube and you'll get the Triumph vid and the spy pics too.

Are those front indicators wrapped in leather??!

I saw this.I don't like it much but we'll see how it is in the flesh.A bigger motor [1,200cc] cruiser would float my boat.

Not Speedmasters or Americas

My America is Beautiful.A version with the new factory 1,200cc engine,and it would be a perfect world

True but the world doesn't stop at Speedys or Americas!
I had a Yam XVS1300 for a couple of years. Sold it 6mths or so ago. Absolutely belting little bike.
Much faster, more comfortable and handled as well as (if not better) than my America.

It stops with Triumph for me these days.
I had two jap bikes that I did lots of miles on and were very good,one AMF Harley that was s***,but over the years I've had four Triumphs.A T110 was my first road bike[When I was 13 a BSA Bantam "bush basher" was my first]. IF I ever get another, which would very likely be my last,it'd be a Triumph.

Yeah, I'm sure that's where the 'Harley is rubbish' movement came from.
From what I've read that was a bad time for them and people never forgot that.

I'm sure the 1200 will be going into the America and Speedy and they could even keep the 865 going and add an America / Speedy 1200 to the range.

They wouldn't be the first manufacturer to have several cc models in the range by keeping the America and Speedy and having cruisers of 865 / 1200 / 1700 / 2300 capacities.

Also they seem to be happy shoving multiple models together. The Tiger and Explorer each has 8 different model variations!
And the Bonny? Christ there are 11 variations of the Bonneville name (inc America / Speedy) in one guise or another on the go at the minute so slotting a couple more in won't hurt.

They've bought back the Trophy, Thunderbird and T120 names, maybe dredge up another old name for a new 1200cc bike.
How about a new Trident or Adventurer ? Hell, why not the Tina ?!

They could call it the T110.That way I'd have come full circle.

My mate had an XLCH 1974 Sportster and I bought the 1974 XLH Sportster. BOTH heaps of ****.Although if they,re stripped to the bones and put together right by someone who knows what they're about, apparently they're decent enough.
Another friend has a 1430cc Harley today and it's a great bike.Big mileage.The only trouble he has had was a 40 dollar electrical sensor that caused major headaches until it was tracked down.

I think I read it was '69 to '80-odd that AMC owned H-D.
Cost cutting was the killer.
