Possibly, and if it keeps selling then maybe they'll slide the Street Twin's engine in and keep the two sizes of Thruxton.

Haha that is typical. I always have the same problem.

This video is pretty cool - shows the new Bonneville with the standard crank vs the Street Twin with a 270 degree crank.

Yamaha really did a nice job introducing the Crossplane R1 back in 2009 or whatever - it has done wonders for generating a badass motorcycle sound on just about any kind of engine...

I have had my Street Twin for about a week and a half. I was a bit concerned about it not having a tach as well until I read it will do 50 mph in first gear before hitting the redline and the rev limiter. OK, so I have not even attempted to rev that high during break in but can almost guarantee its beyond the peak for this motor and even during spirited riding I don't think I would ever rev out that high. That's the nice thing about this bike. Usable torque at lower rpm makes for a very fun ride. I have to agree with everything else. This is only my second Street bike (after my Honda Grom ) and I am totally enjoying the ride. The looks ofthis bike, riding position, comfort, sound , power, and 60 mpg average during the first 400 miles have all the makings of a stealth commuter.
