That may be when it is introduced but I bet you won't be able to buy one until 2018.

It's a fat tire Bobber with forward controls and a back seat. Surprised everyone isn't in an uproar about the other bike Triumph has in the "spy" picture.

Pirated photo from a Chicago private showing. I'm sure it's nothing Triumph wanted released. Most likely a dealers back room. I imagine that individual will not have that opportunity in the future.

Dual front disc brakes is about a must for me. I would like to see bigger pots, though.

Funny, and unless I've overlooked someone here mentioning it already in this thread, but I'm somewhat surprised no one has yet mentioned or has complained about the fork rake not being more kicked out on this new Triumph cruiser model than it is over the standard new Bonneville models?

That aspect of our Americas and Speedmasters being one of the definitive distinctions between them and the previous generation of the standard Bonneville line.

And here I would've thought this aspect of the new bike would have been one of the very first things to have been noticed and commented upon and perhaps even complained about by this cruiser oriented crowd around here.

(...and of course, while the steeper rake of this new Speedmaster would allow it to be a quicker handler in the twisties than the ones owned by those of us around here, I've never gotten the impression that quick handling is all that important an issue with the majority of the BA.com membership)

Yep! Just like a good Single Malt Scotch, you might call me "an acquired taste" TOO.(among the many OTHER things you may care to call me, of course)
