Triumph Motorcycles’ approach towards classic motorcycles has always been phenomenal with the awe-inspiring Bonneville and the Thruxton. They’ve gone a step further and revealed their Bobber range.
The Bobber has the same heart as the Bonneville T120’s- an 8-valve SOHC parallel twin with a big-bang firing order (Sounds like a V-Twin), but retuned to give the Bobber its unique low-end power and torque. It also retains the same 6-speed manual gearbox from the T120. The bike is virtually a stripped down Bonnie, with a non-existent rear seat and minimalistic side panels. Even the rear end is craftily styled to make it look like a classic bobber.
The Bobber has a rear monoshock suspension which is cleverly concealed under the seat, making it look like a classic hardtail (*Cough* Harleys). It also has the Faux- Carburetor covered fuel injection system which now gets Ride-By wire. It also has ABS, Traction control and variable rider modes – the wiring loom secured out-of sight into the bike. This makes it look like an Old-school all mechanical bike. It also gets the trademark side mounted keyhole! The Bobber sits on generous 110/90 19” and 150/80 16” spoked rims. Pricing and other details will be revealed at EICMA 2016 or later in December 2016.
