The TBird series, TBird, Adventurer, TBird Sport and Legend are externally different than the Urban sports. The internal components are very similar. TBird series is detuned so some internal parts are slightly different.

As Al said they are all the same basic motor, and most parts can be interchanged.

So all in all...

The early Hinckley model Trident, Speed Triple, Daytona, Tiger, Trophy, Sprint, all used the 885 motor that had the same external look for a bit.

Legend, Adventurer, TBird, and TBird Sport all used the same 885 with the same external look.

Like it was stated before, a lot of the internals were similar.

For example, I used to have a TBird Sport with Daytona pistons and liners, with Speed Triple cams.
