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.
