Triumphs new Bonneville based bobber has been spied!

It will be interesting to see if Triumph ditches the entire 865cc air-cooled lineup, or if this new 1100cc liquid-cooled platform joins it to expand the offerings
Looks okish. Diamond shaped blinkers look a bit out of place on the "bobber". That Rider looks a bit cramped on it.

Wonder if this will make its way to India, being a hardtail and all.

Good to see that Triumph is willing to experiment with the Bonneville after all these years. That said, anyone else feel the front end is more Harley Sportster than Triumph? Looks oddly similar to the Iron 883.

They should have reviewed this space very carefully, Harleys rules at this point of time with their design and aesthetics. Perhaps this is just a concept or prototype, Triumph usually makes some very informed decisions. I am sure they will improve on this design.

Exactly my thoughts, rather looks like the superlow. Anyway, its a good move I guess for a classic bike like bonnie. Is it only me or the seat looks dangerously small

Default New Triumph Bonneville Bobber - 2017

Folks,

Not sure if you have come across this - Triumph has announced a new Bonneville Bobber for 2017. Absolutely gorgeous to look at .......drool worthy, especially the one in the wine red color

Wonder if we in India are going to get this bike.

Best,

Here comes the First Ride Review:

Quote:
Take one look at the Bobber and you’ll know Triumph has left no leaf unturned. It always had the classic lines, so the DNA was always there. Now all that had to be done was to convert that T120 DNA into a bobber. It took Triumph three years to get this done. But they’ve gotten it right. So right that the Bobber has received twice as many bookings after being unveiled as the Thruxton R did.

The starting point, of course, was the motor, and they chose to work with the T120’s 1200HT. So it gets all the great bits like ride-by-wire, traction control and two riding modes (Rain and Road). However, with a remap, new air box, intake, exhaust and output shaft, the Bobber makes 106Nm at 4,000rpm which is 2 per cent more than the T120. It also has a flatter torque curve which stays above 100Nm from around 2,750rpm to 5,200rpm. The peak power has dropped a tiny bit, but it makes more power in the mid-range than the T120. The effect of this is evident the moment you start riding. The Bobber is mighty quick off the line. The wider torque spread also makes acceleration readily available even from low revs in high gears. And despite this boost in performance, it retains that butter-smooth throttle from the T120. The engine still feels refined and has all the characteristics of a British twin, especially the sound.
