Bring back the missing bits!

…not enough like the 2002 Bonnie and previous Thunderbird for me. Bring back metal tank badges, metal side covers, ‘Made in England’ on the engine cover and more emphasis on classic Brit styling (especially the pipes).

In the cruiser market small details like this do get noticed and have a disproportionate effect on credibility, brand image and ultimately resale values.  With the missing bits I would give it the thumbs up too.

Group test!!

Too bad the new California isn't due out just year - a Cali v TBrid v Fury v err, what do we recokon - Softail Custom/Fat Bob/Street Bob? v Victory Kingpin would be a hell of a test to read.

Are we listening bike rag editors of Britain??

Triumph Thunderbird

What a beautiful looking bike !

If I could justify the extra money to her indoors I would swap my Moto Guzzi California for one straight away.

It just needs the two tone tank paint job and the proper "Triumph" badge from the America.
