That said, i expect its tempting for Triumph to differentiate the market with niche higher spec'ed versions
Couldn't. Agree more. I bought my t100 rode it home and tore it apart... I bought it as a base for a custom bobber. I think there are a lot of buyers like myself that want a custom they built not the factory

I know it's a test mule ...but it's interesting that in the picture the front wheel looks like its a mag and the rear wheel like its a spoked.

when an engine changes to water cooling power can easily follow. octane limits how an engine is tuned, heat having a big effect. more power more heat add lean epa setups add more heat. water cooling an engine will allow more aggressive timing more compression which can build earlier cylinder pressure for more torque, harley is quietly developing systems to keep their big dinosaur engines, their lo compression and conservative power help but the upsizing will kill them, unfortunately air cooling will go the way of our simple carbs, whoever hides it best will have a better looking bike. i like simplicity, it will be easier to build a lighter air cooler street tracker, maybe we will get better suspension + brakes to bolt on our older models at a lower cost!!!

I've noticed that the oil cooler on the Bonnie is so much larger then the cooler on my 72 bonnie. It is a large cooler that can be converted to a water cooler with out too much problems, other then designing a water jacketed block, and then store a small oil cooler in a less conspicuous spot. Thus not changing the looks at all.

I just hope they don't make it heavier than 475 lbs.

Looks great. I would love to see a triple in a standard frame. Did you ever notice that you never see any triples like the Thunderbird or Adventurer for sale. I would like to see the 1150 engine in the Speedmaster or America.
