Triumph added the fifth iteration of Bonneville in India. The new addition comes in the form of Bobber, and it is priced at Rs. 9.09 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. The retro-modern motorcycle looks straight from the era of the 1940s when the Bobber motorcycles were quite popular. The motorcycle sits between the Bonneville T120 and the Thruston R in the Indian lineup.
The motorcycle looks retro in every sense and Triumph has done a great job to give attention to the details. It is a factory custom model by Triumph, and even though it looks retro, the motorcycle gets very modern features. The Bonneville Bobber gets a clean design with minimalistic bodywork. The low stance of the motorcycle with lowly slung seat, stripped back design, flat and wide handlebar with concealed rear mono shock give the motorcycle an authentic bobber look.
The attention to the detail can be measured by details like stainless steel strap, rear drum brake inspired hub and the rear mudguard that stays in sync with the fender.
The Bobber is powered by 1,200cc liquid-cooled, a parallel-twin engine that generates a maximum of 76 BHP at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm of maximum torque at 106 Nm at 4,000 rpm. The power is transferred through a 6-speed gearbox to the rear wheel. The motorcycle also comes with two riding modes, road and rain. The Bobber also gets modern equipment like ride-by-wire technology, switchable traction control and standard anti-lock braking system (ABS).
Triumph further provides customisation options for the Bobber. There are products like Vance & Hince’s silencers, ‘ape hanger’ high bars, headlight bezel, bar end mirrors, LED indicators are a few options among 150 accessories available through Triumph. The motorcycle will take on the models like Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom and the Roadster.
