Let's hope it's not the Bobber tank @ 2.4 gallon......

Like the tank and can tolerate the forks....don't want a softail...sorry, if you're taking cues from Meriden Triumph it's all T140v till you reach the saddle then suddenly it's 1954 again.
And what's the engine capacity please?Anyone know if it's 900 or 1200?

Wasn't the spy pic a 1200 Mike? The article w the pic said it was close to production so hopefully it will be the 1200. I got the impression there are going to be 2-3 variants. There could be an entry model 900 Cruiser too later on.

At the base of the engine cylinders appear to be a (1200), on the Speedmaster spy pic.

I like it from that angle but I wonder how bad that radiator looks from the front. Dual disc again I like, spokes I like. Short fat mufflers I do not like. Looks like knee indents again, like that. Not a fan of gaiters. I like the look of the fake monoblock carbs and points cover. Is there anything under that fake point cover? I like the plug on the sprocket cover like the old bikes tranny fill plug. I like the fake? exhaust clamps, I assume they bolt on like the last generation does. I would like longer fatter fenders, nicer looking mirrors. A tach would be nice too, looks like just a speedo. I think the steep price will hurt the bobber and any other off shoots of the Bonnie line. The $5,000 I paid for my SM is max of what I would ever pay for a bike. Thanks to Hermy for hooking me up with that deal! $5,000 only 700 miles on it and over a year warranty left on it.

I agree Al,I'd prefer twin shocks.I'd prefer a skinnier front wheel .Actually I'd prefer them just to stick that motor in a Speedmaster/America frame but that's not going to market them I guess.I'm still very interested.

Every bike isn't going to have everything each person wants. Triumph I think, expect these new cruisers will be customized. Almost every Cruiser owner I know has done some mods. Usually starting w exhaust pipes. I read a review of the Bobber and they said it handles up to Triumph expectations despite having a mono shock. As far as the tire I think you probably could find a way to put a slimmer tire on there, Paul. I'm just glad they kept the SM name and hope they keep the America name on a different Cruiser. I'm not crazy about the idea of a 900 America though w that 1200 engine being available. I bet the next version won't be available for a year. I hate to wait since I have very little patience.

It looks more like an America with the silver engine casings, spoke wheels and fat front tire. Handlebars are also more America'ish.

Engine is definitely the 1200. I'd prefer black engine casings.
