Certainly not the first bobber on the market, but it apparently is certainly technically and visually most radical. The latest version of Bonneville does not lose its practicality and maneuverability although designed as a single-seater. A very special for a serial model Triumph Bonneville Bobber is a completely new style of bike for the firm Hinckley.

The new Triumph Bonneville Bobber comes with borrowed liquid-cooled, two-cylinder engine with 8-valve, single overhead cam parallel-twin a 270 degree firing order and six-speed gearbox is taken from the Bonneville T120, so when it gets more torque and power at medium engine speeds and is also equipped with a bit shorter exhaust system, it will also come with everything from riding modes (Rain and Road) to switchable traction control, ABS, and a torque-assist clutch, immobilizer integrated into the ignition key , and LED lighting for all but the headlamp.

Of course, specific technical specifications are not presented it remains to be seen whether therefore sacrificed anything from 79 hp with is available on model T120.

In addition to the engine of 1200cc, the new Triumph Bonneville Bobber got a new design framework and specific swingarm that is suspended by a separate linkage, and the shock absorber partially hidden under the seat. Steering wheel is wide enough and properly configured to the driver does not have to stretch too much and there is a battery box with stainless steel strap, bar end mirrors and rear mudguard loop.

The seat is also carried out to demonstrate that hovers above the rear wheel arches, the time that the seat is adjustable back and forth so that the lowest position in the back and it was 690 mm, and in the most forward position. This substantially changes the position of the driver, and accordingly is using speed screws can be adjusted and tilt the instrument panel. The adjustable single clock unit has an analogue speedo and an LCD display. Footrests are placed in the middle, and not thrown far forward as the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight. Heated grips and cruise control are optional extras.

All in all, the new Triumph Bonneville Bobber is a model that looks like a real old-timer, as it moves on its wire wheels from 19" on front and on rear 16", wrapped in Avon tires that are specially designed for this model.
