Tasty!

Looks like they've thought of us old guys, and raised the handlebars an inch or two.

Cool, massively fun bike if you're a relatively compact stature. A bit cramped for us larger riders. Still more fun than a pillow case full of puppies

Looks almost as much fun as a 92 hp LeMans. If it is the SE, it should have the 17 inch, mag wheel setup.

I'd rather they not worry about the couple extra HP and figure a way to knock 100 pounds off that porker.

All that newfangled wiring on these new Bonnies somehow made it 100 lbs heavier than the old Bonnies. Good thing they used all that newfangled metals on this one, or think of how heavy it would have been!

No you aren't. How about a nice British Racing Green scheme? I think it would fit a bit better, plus I dislike white motorcycles.

Rant on: Why can Kawasaki build a Bonneville replica with a 180 crank, kickstarter and white piping around the seat, that looks, sounds and even smells like a REAL Triumph, and weighs 385 lbs?

Rant on: And why does the new and improved Triumph builds a portly, stogy looking motorcycle that looks like it was built at some factory in Minsk, circa 1981?

Rant off: Because no one remebers what a REAL TRIUMPH looked and sounded like...I guess...not to mention how it ran and handled.

Give me a pre-unit '58 TR110. Six pack rack, Smiths Ammeter and a Lucas Mag. In BRG with white pin stripes. Smell that burning Castrol?
