How about a Thunderbird Touring??

I currently own a 2010 R3T and love it, but I just wonder if Triumph could make a Touring version of the Thunderbird as well. It could use the same saddlebags and straight back pipes instead of the upswept ones. Put the R3T rear fender on it They couuld even use the entire front fork assembly, headlamps spotlights, fender and all including the windshield. This is the very same way Harley Davidson creates so many models out of the parts bins. Different wheels, perhaps 16 inch laced spoke wheels could be used to give it more of a vintage look. Maybe some people are put-off by the sheer size and massiveness as well as the looks of the R3T and they might just be more attracted to a Smaller Thunderbird version with the same touring capabilities.
