"North American riders will appreciate the Thunderbird’s relaxed riding position, forward mounted controls, pull back handlebars and agile suspension."

European riders won't appreciate the Thunderbird at all; they prefer standards or scooters, and have no interest in cruisers whatsover.

Latin American riders will appreciate the Thunderbird, but couldn't possibly afford a bike like this, with the exception of a few wealthy druglords and military rulers, who will buy the SE but never ride it.

Asians will appreciate the Thunderbird's features, and will begin offering their own version of a large-displacement parallel twin cruiser in 2013, for about 30% less than the Triumph's price. Assuming the T-Bird sells well.

So far the Asians haven't done all that well at undercutting Triumph's price point.
