Triumph has just launched its Modern Classic Bonneville Bobber
- New to the Bonneville series and will be placed between the Bonneville T120 and Thruxton R
- All new chassis, suspension, and frame
- In excess of 150 accessories available to customers for customization
Triumph has just added a new model to its range- a modern classic Bonneville Bobber. This can be considered similar to the existing Bonneville T120 except it also uses the “less is more” philosophy to benefit performance characteristics which gained popularity during the 1960’s and 1970’s. Incorporating the “chopped up bob jobs” customization technique, the Bobber retains an elegant, minimalist style with its low stance and stainless steel strap cover for the battery box and bar end mirrors.
The Bobber gets the same liquid-cooled 1200cc parallel-twin engine in the same High Torque (HT) guise as that in the Bonneville T120. It also retains a host of modernities such as ride-by-wire throttle, switchable traction control and two riding modes (Road and Rain). This engine is mated to the same six-speed gearbox we find on the T120 and also keeps the slip-assist clutch that helps prevent rear-wheel lockup during hard downshifting and makes for a light lever action.
Available in 4 color choices, pricing for the Bonneville Bobber starts at INR 9.09 lakhs (ex-showroom New Delhi) and will keep owners wanting to appreciate its design elements while certainly catching public attention when found along the streets.
