2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Unparalleled heritage, stunning custom style...

The latest addition to the Bonneville family, Triumph introduces the all-new premium custom Bonneville Bobber. Born in a unparalleled bloodline of Triumph bobber customs that stretch all the way back to the 1940’s it perfectly encapsulates the minimalist styling principles, muscular stance and purposeful engineering attitude of a genuine bobber.

Stripping the Bonneville T120 back to its purest essence it delivers all the hallmarks of a real bobber, with clean lines and low stance, single seat, wide flat bars, minimal bodywork and headlight, sculpted tank, wire spoked wheels with wide rear wheel and that all-important hard tail look.

THE PREMIUM CUSTOM BONNEVILLE BOBBER

Brutally beautiful, the new Bonneville Bobber is a genuine factory custom. It perfectly encapsulates the minimalistic styling principles, muscular stance and purposeful engineering attitude of a genuine Bobber.

Stripping the Bonneville T120 back to its purest essence it delivers all the hallmarks of a real bobber. With clean lines and low stance, single seat, wide flat bars, minimal bodywork and headlight, sculpted tank, wire spoked wheels, with wide rear wheel and that all important hard tail look.

An all-new chassis, suspension and frame deliver a supremely confident, dynamic and comfortable category defining ride. With an innovative elegantly engineered adjustable seat and clock position to suit the rider and riding style. The stunning ‘swing cage’ hard tail set-up and hidden mono-shock suspension make the bobber as dynamic and thrilling to ride as it is to look at.

All electronic components are hidden from view so as not to compromise its clean lines. Rider focused technology and the signature Bonnie straight-line ‘hidden cat box’ exhaust run, are all neatly incorporated without interfering with the Bobber’s stunning looks.

At the heart of the Bobber is a category-leading, high-torque Bonneville 1200cc engine with a dedicated Bobber tune for even more torque and power low down and twin slash cut sawn off peashooter silencers and unique twin airbox and filters to surround the rider in a pure Bonneville hot rod sound.

The Bonneville Bobber has over 150 additional accessories available to enhance its beauty further and make it truly unique.

There has been quite a bit of a buzz about this bike on FB and many of my local RR600 crotch rocket riders are drooling over this bike. Triumph IMHO has nailed it perfectly with this retroest of retro bike.....the lines are perfect, the design smack on, the engine looks the part and the more modern components, such as the rear shock discretely hidden away. Plus it has got a respectable amount of HP, not too much, but just enough.....would I put down hard earned coin to own one? Yes, in a heartbeat. So finally for the first time this month.....Awesome.
Always ask why.

So cool, it's zero degrees Kelvin. So many awesome details. I love the seat that adjusts vertically and horizontally, the Triumph badge on the seat, the hidden shock, the fork gaiters, the red rubber spark plug boots, the rear brakelight design. Gaaah, just awesome. I've seen a few video reviews on YouTube, and it seems this thing even handles well. Arguably the best looking of what is already a very good looking range of bikes.

It's so out of the box, that if I saw one, it's very awesome.

Hmmm, what an interesting design. Something that looks like it came straight out of the late 40's/early 50's... pre-café racer, more "stripped down WWII" style. I don't know where Triumph came up with the idea, other than, MAYBE, the Yamaha Bolt design mixed with the BMW RnineT tail idea. But it is so unique that I'm curious if it will catch on big, or it's a flash in the pan ahead of it's time idea.

There have been other bikes that were so unique they just never did that well... Honda Rune? BMW 1200C Muktuck, even the Buell line.

Interesting, interesting indeed.

And it isn't too expensive to be out of the reach of the common rider either...

Would I trade my Guzzi for one? Well, the Bonneville Bobber has the very cool looks, but I haven't seen it yet in person and the Triumph engines really don't sound that deep or awesome, so probably not, unless Guzzi builds one...lol.

Guess the question is what colour would you get?
