If it's NOT a Harley it's sure disguised as one......

Looks like a Triumph T-bird engine with a Harley photoshopped around it.

The people that think this isn't a Harley are people that think the Trophy doesn't look like an RT.

I'm not a Harley hater, but the comments below that fb post are quite funny.

Seems like Triumph is just testing the motor in that frame. I highly doubt the production bike will look anything like that.

That doesn't look like a HD chassis, that is a HD.

More like Electra Glide fairing, bags, tourpack, seat, and fender slapped on the new Triumph touring bike.

Don't know if this was intended to be a disguise, or if it was intended to fuck with everyone. Either way, it's both hilarious and sad.

Triumph has enough big pigs in the lineup.

I tell you what, I would totally go for the Road King version. I am somewhat Triumph brand loyal. Been playing with the idea of a Speedmaster to park with relatives down south for when I go visit. I wouldn't hesitate to get one of these from Triumph if I ever find myself in the touring cruiser market. I for one hope to see them do it.

It's so blatant harley knock off it makes me nauseus... I had respect for triumph for doing "their thing" with their own "style", even though I wasn't a fan of the way most of their bikes looked. For some reason this bike completely ruins triumph for me. and i'm not talking about the picture above, I'm talking about the bike with the non-spoke wheels, a fairing, and hard cases that scream HD!

The pic above looks like a some hybrid of yamaha road star and a kawi vulcan. Very unoriginal still...

well if you read the article you would have read that its a test mule using Harley and victory parts. it is in no way the final design.
