    Horrible body position with the clip-ons, but a cool looking bike. Last pic shows some good detail of just how easy it will be to remove the rear shock, hard strut the rear end, and then slam down a seat on the frame. Got me a little excited.

    A base model Bonnie (900cc) is now $13,700 + ORC. I would expect the bobber (1200cc) to sit well above that, possibly up around Thruxton money ($18,500+ORC).

    Will be announced in December. I agree with Commander Keen, this will not be cheap and more likely at the high end of the scale

    So about $19,000
    I don't understand why people complain when someone puts a fully rebuilt custom built bobber on gumtree and then say "i wouldn't pay 19K for that, i could do it for half the price"

    ps i may have said that
    pps I now know the true cost of building a high end custom motorcycle
    ppps If i had 19K i would buy this bike.

    Because most of the so called "Bobbers" on Gumtree are just Japanese cruisers with a cheap plastic bolt on Blue Collar Bobbers rear fender and seat kit

    First review seems very positive

    http://www.cycleworld.com/2017-trium...st-ride-review

    Price has been announced as 10,500 UK pounds, which is exactly the same as what the Indian Scout sells for in the UK. The Indian Scout is $19,995 here in Australia so I guess you can expect the Australian pricing for this new Triumph to be about $20K.

    I was pretty much spot on with my guess on price:

    https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/burs...0cc/1140627181

    Looks like JCS has them from $19,990
