First post!!!!!



Is that going to have the longitudinal inline three I read about? I like the ad, pretty clever for a massive bike.

It is the longitudinal. I've read varying reports of 140-160 HP, and about the same torque. Should be interesting.

I hope they don't actually plan to sell them, cuz they won't. I'm not sure who their target customer is for an ugly liquid-cooled, inline three shaft-drive cruiser. It'll be a novelty bike, just like the Ruin.

Default Oh, it'll sell

We're not talking about something the size of a small-block Chevy, like a Boss Hoss. I would think the form factor would be more on the lines of a Valkyrie. Another winner in the American market for Bloor and Company.

No, I'll wager that if the bike looks good they will sell plenty. Naturally it will have to be very confortable for the type that will lay down the muula. Of course the gas mileage will have to be 40 mpg+. I can't wait to see and test ride this thing. If Triumph does it right they will have no trouble selling this bike.

This is America. Too much is just enough.

...and as I understand it, even at well over $20 the 'ruin' has way more customers than bikes.
