Triumph have shocked the world with their glut of exceptional new modern classics over the past 12 months, and this new Bobber is one of the most impressive in the metal.
Just like the rest of the firmõs rush of modern classics, the Bobber manages to hide such modern requirements as ABS, traction control, rider modes and a ride-by-wire throttle in a package that looks remarkably authentic.
The detailing is fantastic, from the seamless integration of all the shared parts common to all the T120 range, through to the beautifully engineered Ôswinging cageõ rear swingarm and shock linkage, to the bars, adjustable clocks, dinky headlamp, side-mounted ignition barrel, and the delightfully authentic hoop-style rear fender stay Ð the Bobber is a genuine visual delight.
