From my observations here in Oz I would suspect that the Thruxton is the slowest seller in the Bonneville range. Not surprising considering that most Bonny owners tend to be from the mature end of the rider spectrum, so hopefully this bike won't have too aggressive a riding position.
Tuned for mid range grunt, better suspension, a little more room for bigger riders, larger tank, and this bike could be a real winner, a great all rounder. Naturally I'm talking about what I want here, other than the Scrambler I find the rest of the range a little small for me at 187cm and 90kg, not bikes I'd want to tour on. Ah, we can but dream.
