New Triumph Bonneville Bobber cruiser spied testing in Spain. The motorcycle will come to Indian and expand the lineup of Triumph in the Indian market
The Bonneville Bobber from Triumph is one of the admirable creations from the well known British brand. The all new spotted cruiser version of the Bonneville Bobber looks more comfortable and practical. Compared to its predecessor the Bonneville Bobber which was revealed at last year’s EICMA in Milan, the upcoming cruiser comes with two comfortable seats.
Forward set rider footpegs, taller handlebar, new rear subframe, deeper headlamp cowl. The bike that was spotted in Spain near Triumph’s test facility looks absolutely production ready. There are already ten variants on sale and the latest spy shots expose that the eleventh one is on its way.
The T120 parallel-twin 1,200 cc liquid cooled 8-valve engine is derived from its existing Bobber motorcycle. The engine is mated with a 6-speed transmission and delivers 77 PS of power at 6100 RPM and 106 Nm of peak torque at 400 RPM. Significant changes have been made to the all new Bonneville Bobber cruiser like the addition of the sub-frame with pillion and luggage provision, 16-inch wheels at both ends.
There are repositioned rider foot controls as they now appear in a bit front giving the motorbike a typical and traditional cruiser look with well-cushioned rider’s seat. The bike features split units while the pillion seat comes with a backrest. The headlamp, tail lamp and the indicators are all LEDs. To keep with the whole cruiser aesthetic, there’s lot of chrome used everywhere, as well as large chrome crash guard.
The new cruiser Bonneville Bobber will be replacing the older Bonneville America and Speedmaster, which have now been discontinued internationally as they don’t meet Euro IV emission norms. It is speculated that Triumph will ultimately bring this cruiser version of the Bobber in India.
This would help them to compete against their rivals like Harley-Davidson and Indian in fast growing market. Expect the Bobber cruiser to be priced a bit higher than that of the Bobber which was launched in India earlier this year at INR. 9.09 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
