Triumph Bobber For Sale
What Is It?
The Triumph Bobber is a solo cruiser / bobber version of the Bonneville T120. It's powered by a Euro 4 compliant liquid cooled 1,200 cc parallel twin engine, producing 76 bhp at 6,100 rpm and maximum torque at just 4,000 rpm.

Compared to the T120 the Bobber features a low single seat, flat bars, wide rear wheel and hardtail look with the Aluminium seat. It isn't actually a traditional hardtail bobber though because the seat is fixed as normal and the rear shock is cunningly hidden inside the frame.
The chassis and suspension are new and Triumph have taken care to hide the wires where possible for a really clean look. There are plenty of details to make it look authentic such as the ignition placement on the right side, drum brake styled rear hub, retro style battery box, rear mudguard loop and the cat hidden in the bottom of the frame.
The 19" front and 16" rear wire spoked wheels are fitted with Avon Cobra tyres (100/90 front, 150/80 rear).
Accessories include the Vance & Hines mufflers (£650), ape hanger bars (£100), clip-on bars, heated grips (£185), cruise control (£250), comfort seat (£125), LED headlight, rear bag (£270) and short front mudguard (£120).

Thoughts From A Long Term Owner
I absolutely love my Bobber and talk about instant power! It's very agile through traffic, the best bike I've ever purchased and I've owned quite a few bikes over the years.
I've got mini ape hangers, forward controls and the emissions box removed plus it's booked in and I might consider some cam work next...
