I sent in to Triumph my dealer survey for my new Speedmaster. I posed the question to them...why not a "new" Speed Twin or some model redo from the 50s? Very few of these bikes seem to be around compared to the 60s bikes. I am too young to have owned one of those and what a cool era. What if Triumph redid a version of the Speed Twin, say 500-600cc. Keep it narrow like the old bikes. Price it between $6k-$6.5k? Who would not want one of these? I just bought a `62 Tiger...the old bikes are very cool. Low weight, narrow, simple. Triumph needs an "entry" level bike to round out their line. Why not something vintage. Why not even another headlight nacelle? I'm not saying they need to make a knockoff, but take that awesome 50s styling and create something retro modern.
