‘96 T’bird
With new Thunderbirds/Americas and Speedmasters not selling well, why don’t Triumph make a cruiser bike with a triple engine? An updated version of the Hinckley T’bird , 900 triple range, maybe?
It could compete directly with the smaller HDs if sized accordingly (and priced accordingly).
I have been looking for a modern equivalent of a 96 T’bird 900 to replace mine and there is nothing in the Triumph range.
That’s probably why the Hinckley bikes are very popular and becoming a classic.
I won’t be updating my T’bird any time soon, I guess?

I think cruisers in general are not selling well.

I know of nothing built these days that I would consider a fitting replacement for my old 900 Legend. Getting better every year. Here is a picture of "Cedric"...J.D.

I don't know. I would not mind having a new Bobber. ...J.D.
In my opinion, the Bobber is not a a traditional cruiser. It is a modified Bonneville, a standard bike. Tom me a cruiser, is a foot forward bike. like the Rocket, America, Speedmaster, HD. I like the Bobber.

You do make a good point there. It kind of blurs the lines a bit. Not that I am about to buy one mind you.Got too many bikes already. I have a very patient wife, but one has to know when to quit while he is ahead. ...J.D.
