The Triumph Bonneville Bobber was revealed earlier and it was sure that Triumph will be launching the motorcycle in India soon. Reaffirming the speculation, the bike maker has recently shared a teaser video of the motorcycle on their official India website .Some dealerships have also confirmed that they have commenced the bookings of the motorbike at a booking amount of Rs.2 lakh. Once the bike is launched, it will be delivered in ten days after full payment is done. The Triumph Bonneville Bobber is a stripped down Bonneville T120 in the flesh with classic retro styling with stylish touches all over. A stripped down version of everyday utility motorbikes with minimalistic styling is a rough depiction of what bobbers are. The Bonneville Bobber gets a floating aluminum single seat pan, hard tail look and wide handle bars with a stripped down, signature bobber look. The motorcycle gets changeable riding spot, twin slash cut sawn off peashooter silencers with a beefy stance. The bike also gets an all-new chassis and suspension geometry, bubble tank, discrete taillights, custom battery box and a lean tucked-in headlights. Other features include 2 riding modes, road and rain; switchable traction control, torque-assist clutch and immobiliser.
The coming Bonneville Bobber gets all the whistles and bells in line with all the other modern day motorbikes offered by Triumph with the electronics neatly integrated and masked under the skin. The Bobber is powered by a 1200cc parallel-twin motor which makes 77PS @ 6100 RPM and a highest torque of 106Nm @ 4000 rpm, mated to a six-speed gearbox. Most of the torque and power is available at lower rpm and the result is a relaxed engine, best for relaxed rides. The motorcycle gets a 310 mm disc with Nissin twin-piston floating calipers at the front and a 255 mm disc with Nissin single piston caliper at the rear along with ABS as standard. It gets KYB 41 mm telescopic forks with 90 mm travel at the front and KYB monoshock with 76.9mm travel at the rear. The price of the bike is not confirmed yet, but we expect it to be about Rs.10 lakh on-road. Once on sale, it will face competition from Moto Guzzi V9 Bobber.
