I find the numbers listed here very interesting, and somehow I feel they don't fit Triumph's projected demographic for the reborn Bonneville back in what? 2001? I remember reading that the original target audience was the group who remembered the original Bonneville ('59-'72 -- I don't count the T140 in the original Bonne series). That means most of the people posting here never saw a new T120 in a dealership (and probably most never say a Meriden/Triumph dealer, even -- current Hinckley/Triumph dealers who were Meriden/Triumph dealers excepted).
This is good for Hinckley Triumph -- they have successfully created a modern classic that is very appealing to an entire new generation of riders.
BTW, I'm almost 62, got my first Bonneville ('67 T120) back in 1969, sold it and bought a '69/'70 T150 (Trident), bought my second Bonneville ('67 Bonneville) in 1981. My 2012 SE is my third Bonneville (and the best of the lot). I've also had a bunch of other bikes, starting with a Honda C200 (90cc) back in 1964. Never left the scene, and usually have owned 2 - 3 motorcycles at once.
