You can get these for an Enfield but they look butt ugly ...




Or these ...



I'd be surprised if they didn't do something like those and they'd be quick release too so the hipsters can carry their mobiles and beard combs into the café

I bet that would be an interesting ride, like a mini pogo stick over every bump.

It's probably going to be about the same as the T120 it's based on (£9,800 over here).
It's annoying that they had the bike on their website within an hour of the 7pm launch ... but no pricing.
They would pretty much know when it went from the designer's screen to the first board meetings what it would cost, or at least way before production started so why not list the price at launch?
Maybe waiting to see interest. If there are loads of "I want one whatever the cost" then they can put a few hundred on the price.
If take up is slow then drop it by a couple of hundred

Maybe a man purse for the hair brush and I-Pad along with one of those suction cup pillion rider seats for the misses.

It appears the cat's are in the slip-ons, nice. First thing to remove . I still think the radiator stands out on this bike more that it does on the other Bonnie lines. Probably because it supposed to be a stripped down bike.

I was thinking more of the ability to carry a little bit of gear for an overnight trip.Take it over a cobble stone road and it Might get some lady passengers grinning though .

The second brown and black don't seem too bad, but I think they stole the first one from a 1940s Army Despatch rider.

Yeah, like scramblers and café racers, Bobbers are the 'new' thing now.
I was talking to a bloke a couple of weeks ago who was riding a Nine T. Nice bike and really nice quality look about it (funny thing, the indicators were up under the seat - sticking out.
I guarantee I'd kick them off first ride getting on or off).
It will be interesting to see and feel the quality of the Triumph

Yeah, Bobber's are the next big thing for the Hip Set. Personally I dislike the big space between the seat and fender, but I guess I'm just too old for tricks like that. I also dislike the tank lifts guys do trying to look like choppers. I must be getting old and Grumpy.
