Very nice, the use of a softail maintains the golden triangle and makes for an excellent look.

I like it! I wonder if it would be fairly easy to swap out the wheels for cast ones, like the current Speedmasters.

Pretty cool. Reminds of the originals a little except for the hardtail look. Maybe for sale next Spring??? Is a new America going to soon follow???

I'm curious to see how Triumph will market the new Speedmaster. Will it get the "Brutal Bobber" marketing tour, or the original Speedmaster/ America marketing of " oh yeah we also have a cruiser"

Pricing will also be interesting.
2016 list price for a Speemaster, $8,400 USD.
2017 list price for a Bobber, $ 11,900 USD.
This new speedy looks to be nothing more than a refined Bobber with chrome exhaust, different rear fender, seat and pillion seat. And hopefully a larger tank from the T120.
So are we looking at $12,900 / $13,400 price tag? Ouch

Well Mike isn't any bike just a some of all it's parts? I mean they derived the original TBA/Speedmaster from the standard Bonnevile. Tweaked the engine frame tank etc. Isn't that they are doing now? All these models are based on the new Bonneville line .

As for marketing I bet there's some flash and hype but I bet it won't be like the Bobber. That one was their baby and I guess has proved to be a big seller.

I agree w you price is going to be up there. Between 12-13 big ones. With all the derivatives of the New Bonneville out there, I don't think the Speedmaster will make near as big of a splash as the original TBA.

Not a negative comment about the "refined Bobber".
I was merely pointing out the cost of the striped down Bobber in comparison to the previous Speedmaster and possible cost of the new one.

Also the early TBA was more than just the Bonnie dressed up. Different "crank", frame, wheels, tank, fenders, seats etc.

Oh I know. We're just discussing this new Cruiser some people have been waiting for w a bigger engine. If some can get over the fact that everything is not going to be like the originals, I think they will be a hit. Might even have to change the little pics of the bikes at the site header.

I like it. She looks beefy. That front end makes a great statement. Looks like a standard Bonneville tank.

Kinda reminds me of the T-Bird Adventure except for the larger front tire.

Bet they make a floorboard-windscreen version and call it America. Just my guess.

Since the cruiser class has it's own following another marketing tour with this and the new Rocket would be interesting.

One can hope.

like it too.I'm not a fan of white piping on seats and blacked out lower fork legs but that's just my opinion and minor details.I like the overall look of the bike.
