I think the Bonneville 2 has been a great success for Triumph.
In particular as witnessed by this forum sales in the USA have been excellent. Triumph and the USA have a special relationship IMHO.
You only have to look at the very many custom versions as well as the ''ordinary'' versions.
In 2006 I took delivery of my first Bonneville and with Norman Hyde pipes it was a thing of beauty (790cc version with twin carbs in cardinal red.) I loved it........
But look at this lovely beast, Streetmaster version.....
My main (negative) comment about the Hinckley Bonneville is the weight of the frame and the engine, but overall a very good bike. I like the newest version with the comstar wheels and slightly smaller tyres.
