I like it. It is nice to see Triumph making some bold moves and the performance and handling should be awesome. Hope it makes the Sporty and Scout blink. No place for the wife so not for me, but I still like it.

One problem could be carrying stuff but I guess a back pack would do or a tank bag.

I think it will sell well, The Hipsters will eat it up. I'm very impressed that Triumph keeps bringing out new product that hits the mark. Bring on the new America !!

Ok, we've seen this one. If I was 18 again, wore skinny jeans and Vans shoes, and my old man was rich......

Does anyone know when the complete new line up will be revealed? When's the annual dealer meeting?

My thoughts exactly.
Us fat blokes will look a little out of place on one I think.
All the images and videos show pretty young things with perfect teeth, coiffured hair and they all seem to have the ideal lifestyle.
Granted, some bloke watching tv on the sofa in his wife beater supping a six pack of beer isn't going to sell bikes but a little more realism wouldn't hurt now, would it?
You know, blokes like Dave and Steve meeting at the café for a cuppa and a bacon sarny rather than Atticus and Lazlo (without the 's' of course), meeting up for an organic
tofu and kale smoothy topped off with a parmesan foam!!

Once you start frying some bacon your appetite will soon be back

UK suffered from the import of better quality faster and better handling bikes from Japan and the UK bike manufacturers were too slow to even attempt to play catch up.




I agree, it was a shame because they had serious warnings. When the 305 Honda motor came out they should have taken note. But 1969 with the 750 Four it was over for them.

Old man Honda didn't keep it a secret. They intended to make fast, reliable and affordable bikes. They did. Harley and the British sat on their logos doing nothing to compete.

We make fun of AMF but had they not been involved for a decade the Harley name would just be in the history books. They made the HD branding and logo wear a big business. So who needs engineering to go with it.

I don't like that bobber at all. My big fear is that they don't update the America/Speedmaster line in an attempt to push cruiser riders into the Thunderbird line.
