That engine is seductive though. Why couldn't they drop that into an America or old Speedmaster?Anyway it looks better than the bobber IMO.

My first impression is this is a home run. I will have to see it in person.

My only concern is they are wanting this to replace the America, Speedmaster, and T-Bird.

Not sure it will have the weight to be comfortable doing interstate miles. Right Paul.

1200cc water cooled should be plenty to push her down the road.

No desire to replace my America, but I would own one of these.

Overall it isn't bad. I'm still not thrilled with the 3.1 gallon tank but as long as it can make it at least 150 miles between fill ups it's acceptable. I don't care for the 16 inch rims at all. I would be curious to know if the 18 and 17 inch rims from the T120s would be a direct swap. I do like that they were able to keep the weight down close ours at 541 lbs. I personally want to wait and see what they do with the new America and Thunderbird models in the next couple of years.

The Thunderbird line is gone as of 2018. I highly doubt whether they will bring the America name back either.

Well I have had 2 Tbirds since 2010 and have been spoiled w the highway ride especially w the Commander. I doubt if I would want to go back to a lighter bike for long distance touring.

You may be right on the America moniker. I know that the current version of the Thunderbird is done but I doubt that Triumph has no plans for another version, perhaps one with a larger/big bore or high output/Thruxton motor type cruiser version that will be more suitable to touring .
