Triumph Bonneville Bobber
A “Pure” Bonneville Hot Rod
With styling inspired by bobbers from the 1940s, the New Triumph Bobber is stripped to the bare essentials.
A “pure Bonneville hot rod,” with special engine tuning that makes more low-end power and torque and dual exhausts with slash-cut, “sawed off” peashooter mufflers that deliver a raw, thrilling sound.
The Bobber has an all-new frame, chassis and suspension suited to this style of bike. But the retro-styled Bobber is fully modern, with throttle-by-wire, riding modes (Road and Rain), switchable traction control and ABS.
The Bobber has a unique twin airbox setup and straight-line exhausts that hide the catalytic converters. The 1200cc engine is matched to a 6-speed transmission with a torque-assist clutch and chain final drive.
It has a wide, flat handlebar, a floating aluminum seat pan with a stitched, deep-foam solo pad, a “swing cage” that hides the rear monoshock and gives the bike a hard tail look, and spoked wheels with black rims.
Other special styling features include a battery box with a stainless steel strap, bar-end mirrors, a rear fender loop, twin throttle bodies that look like carburetors, over-sized adjustable levers, rubber fork gaiters, a rear “drum brake” inspired hub and a sprocket cover with a removable inspection cap. Premium finishes, special badges and covers, a branded, locking fuel cap and silver satin and graphite handlebar risers round out the factory custom look.
An innovative slotted seat system allows the rider to position the seat “up and forward” in a sporty roadster position or “down and backward” for cruising in a more traditional riding position. A quick-release function for the gauges allows the rider to adjust their position to complement their seating style, and regardless of position, seat height is a low 27.2 inches.
The new Bonneville Bobber is available in four color options: Ironstone with a matte finish, Morello Red, two-tone Competition Green/Frozen Silver and classic Jet Black. For customization, more than 150 accessories are available, everything from Apehanger handlebars, Vance and Hines exhausts and a Fox rear shock to a Cruise Control kit, Heated Grips and a Comfort seat.
