Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber World Launch
So, last week we told you all about the Yamaha MT-09 launch in the Spanish Island of Mallorca and the new changes that we could expect for 2017.
Well, this week it was Triumph’s turn to launch the Bonneville Bobber in Madrid. Similarly, the launch gave some lucky UK journalists the chance to test ride the new Bonneville Bobber for 2017 which was first introduced back in October.
Here is some of what we know about Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber.
The motorcycle has gained a brand-new frame, chassis and suspension which makes the bike far more focused on the rider and their comfort. In addition, we can expect a low, adjustable, single seat, minimal bodywork, wider handlebars, and a single front headlight adding retro styling.
Moreover, the Bobber carries an authentic battery box, rear mudguard loop, round side mirrors on the handlebars and bullet indicators. As mentioned above, the Bonneville Bobber is very rider focused and includes several new technologies which enhance this factor including switchable traction control, torque-assist clutch, rear LED light, road and rain riding modes, and a single dial display clock which highlights information such as gear position, fuel level, traction control and a rev counter.
The bike will be available in dealers in February, and is priced at £10,500. In addition, there are two brand new inspiration kits which will be available to purchase for the Bonneville Bobber. Firstly, you can purchase the Quarter Mile Bobber for £1500 which includes blacked-out silencers, clip-on bars, headers, intake covers, headlamp bezel leather seat, short front mudguard and much more. Another option you might want to consider is the Old School Bobber which costs £1610 and includes brushed stainless silencers, ape hanger bars, short front mudguard, leather seat, gummy grips, swing arm bag and more.
