Us "under-30s" will someday be over 50, you know. There's a never-ending supply of future old-folk ;-) Besides, I know lots of people under the age of 30 that love classic-style bikes, although it does seem to be a more ubiquitous trend in Japan and Europe.

Perhaps Triumph will have to compete with H-D for those classic-minded punters in the USA? Perhaps that’s why Triumph built the Bonneville America? I’m not sure, but it seems plausible. Speaking of which….. Any chance of MO reviewing a Bonneville America against a Sportster?

In all seriousness though, I think the key to Triumph's success has been niche marketing. They may need to stay "alternative" to remain in the black. Wasn’t that one of the reasons that Indian Motorcycles sank? They were too similar to Harley Davidson?

I think their biggest problem is price. I'd buy a Bonneville in a heartbeat if they could drop a few $$$ of that tag.
