Bon­neville Bob­ber

Who’d have thought Tri­umph could out- Har­ley Har­ley by re­leas­ing a Bri­tish bob­ber that was more than a match for any­thing built in Amer­ica? Well this year Tri­umph man­aged just that with the ex­quis­ite Bon­neville Bob­ber. De­vel­oped around the firm’s 1200 par­al­lel twin, the Bon­nie Bob­ber is a sim­ply beau­ti­ful mod­ern bob­ber with a real eye for de­tail – from the hid­den wiring to the unique swingarm de­sign, it’s a de­light both vis­ually and to ride.

And it’s the Bob­ber’s abil­ity to sweep through cor­ners with far more poise and pre­ci­sion than you would ex­pect of a bike of this style that makes it so spe­cial. Yes, the sin­gle front brake is a bit lack­ing and the ground clear­ance min­i­mal, but if you want to kick back and look good, this is the bike to be seen on. And with a stack of ac­ces­sories avail­able, it can be made to look even bet­ter.
