The Triumph Bobber is a throwback to the days of single-seater motorcycles – it is to Triumph what the Classic is to Royal Enfield. It shares its engine with the Bonneville T120, although the power and torque outputs differ marginally at 76bhp and 106Nm. The chassis of the Bobber differs from the Bonneville, the former being designed to look like a rigid frame. However, the rear shock is almost hidden under the seat, and it has all the modern conveniences you could want, from ABS to traction control to two riding modes. The neo-retro styling makes it a much more appealing product visually, and if you have visions of riding around like Steve McQueen in The Great Escape, all you’ll need is some olive green paint, and a Triumph Bobber.
The Triumph Bobber competes with the likes of the Harley Davidson Forty Eight and the Street Bob
