Speed Twin reintroduction perhaps?
      #662701 - 11/23/16 06:11 PM

Just thought I'd stick this in a seperate thread.
Given that they came out with the Street Twin monicker earlier ... would that have purposely implied and preceded the reintroduction of the iconic Speed Twin from the '40s?

Possibly so.

Kind of reminds me of the TBird Sport, and if so, bravo Triumph!

A 'factory' street fighter?
I wonder when the 'factory' chopper will be launched?

We've got the factory "bobber" so the "factory" line could continue.
I remember reading somewhere about how Harley eventually copied a lot of the look and ideas of the customisers and incorporated them in their production bikes.
The first "low-rider" that Willie G put out for example

What worries me is that Hinckley may consider our style of bike as being passe'.....rather uncool and not hipster enough for their hoped for image.
Hope I'm wrong
