I hope that drive shaft is covered before any more are made!!! exposed drive shafts and UJ's do not make for a happy ending!! Otherwise different and an interesting concept

It doesn't look like it will handle all that well, but that is a beautiful looking thing... some of the detailing is stunning - and so very clean/minimalist.

All credit to them if it does make it into production close to how it looks like here!

Personally I think I'd still prefer a stripped down Bonneville Bobber, but the more the merrier I say!

Like the guy said in the vid, it's an exercise in product semantics...could well become a classic

I do actually like the bobbers out there. Triumph's is rather lush:



As is CCM's



Totally impractical, and feck all use for anything except posing, but Yes I would.

Yep, I saw this one in a dealer in Montana last summer - they'd stripped the fenders off (a pointed out that Triumph have made it easy to do this with minimal tabs/brackets showing once they've been removed) and were planning on fitting one of those small off-set taillight and licence plate holders to the rear axle.





As you say - I would, too.
