Triumph Motorcycles India expands its modern classic range with the launch of the Bonneville Bobber in the country.
Say hello to the Bonneville Bobber, the latest addition to Triumph’s modern classic range in India. The Bonneville Bobber is priced at Rs 9.09 lakh(ex-showroom, Delhi), meaning it sits above the Street Twin, T100 and T120 and below the range-topping Thruxton R café racer. The launch of the Bobber now makes the Bonneville family a five motorcycle strong range in the Indian market.
The main highlight of the Bobber is that it’s a modern day interpretation of America’s classic looking bobber motorcycles. As a result, the Bobber gets some interesting design elements such as a low-stance stripped back look, a single seat, a hard rear mud-flap, typical bobber-like wide handlebars, a slash-cut exhaust, carb-style twin-throttle bodies, etc. And you've to say, all of the elements come together really well because the Bobber is one stunning looking motorcycle.
The Bonneville Bobber is largely based on the T120, but it gets a new frame and revised suspension setup. Powering the motorcycle is the same liquid-cooled 1,200cc parallel-twin engine as the T120. The engine is rated at 76bhp and 106Nm and comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox. Triumph also claims that the Bobber’s engine has a new dual-chamber airbox that helps deliver more punch at low engine RPMs.
The Bobber is brimming with all the latest tech as it comes with a ride-by-wire throttle, ABS, switchable traction control, two riding modes – Rain and Road, LED tail-light and a torque assist clutch.
Four colour options are available on the motorcycle – Modello Red, Ironstone, Jet Black and Competition Green/Frozen Silver. Triumph will also be offering two custom kits with the Bobber, namely, Old School and Quarter Mile.
The Bonneville Bobber is Triumph’s first launch of the year. The next launch by the British marque will be the all-new Street Triple.
