Triumph had been working on expanding its Bonneville line and now the images confirm that the company would be launching Bonneville Bobber on 19th October in London. The bike would be making its first public appearance in EICMA or Milan Motorcycle Show which will be held next year in Milan, Italy. It is said to be very loud and definitely will have its own unique frame with a faux-hard tail rear end. Single-seater with no provision of pillion riders. While all the other bikes of Bonnie range have a twin-disc brake setup this one will have only a single front disc.
It is to expect the new Triumph Bonneville Bobber to custom the similar engine segments that are existing on the current Bonneville range; the 900cc parallel-twin motor and the powerful 1,200cc motor. According to Overdrive, some test units have been spotted which feature a larger engine; reportedly it is the 1,200cc motor which ought to be the Euro-IV emission norms. It is not confirmed so until the official unveiling is done, we can’t say much.
There is no front mudguard in the test bike. Bobber also has a monoshock which is hidden under the seat. The bike would include bar-end mirrors, indicators, number plate holder and the newly-required side reflectors. Bonneville Bobber has a retro look and is styled classically. Its footrests are made of billet aluminium and the brake lever appears adjustable, pipes of the bike look straight-through but are diverted into an under-engine catalytic converter and then back out through the silencers. Some gap is bridged by a cover which are expected to be standard exhausts.
The girder front forks have naturally disappeared. Triumph has gone to great lengths to minimize and hide the radiator. Some of the parts of the bike are still incomplete but hopefully it will be completed soon. After getting the images of the bike we can say that the makers are trying hard to make it successful on the road. This bike is surely looks exciting and is loaded with excellent features. The Curiosity is going to be among the people for it’s market launch.
