I like the fat front tire, I was wondering what diameter the wheel is. I was going to do a long front springer on the hardttail I am building but lately have been leaning to a short front springer with a 16" wheel and fat front tire and somewhere around 10" to 12" apes with a big round headlight maybe 8".

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.




Yes as I said Paul they're very minor nit-picks.Iagree about the 900-1200 and the fact it'll probably be another year coming but I'm very interested.

The more I look at the "smuggled pic" if in fact that's what it really is. I see the same small tank that's on the Bobber. Same design, same gap from the tank to the seat. If that's the case it's a major flub IMO.

Look's like the rear fender/mud guard is off the T120 along with the grab rail. New rider and passenger seat. Chrome vs polished exhaust. Fatter front tire with dual disc and different bars and mirrors, along with forward foot controls.
Bobber to compare

I think the tank is bigger than the bobber.It looks like the old style with the indents America tank to me.

No, it only has a gas cap on top, no dash or indent for one and not as wide at the front.

Yes I see it now Ian.The cruising range wont be much with the Bobber tank.

I'm starting to wonder if this is a sort of mock-up to see what works,what doesn't.
