When it comes to making retro themed motorcycles that look conventional but come loaded with modern features, Triumph motorcycles is one of the first names that come to mind. They already have the Bonneville range in India which has got itself a new top of the line addition in the form of Triumph Bonneville Bobber, which has been launched at a price tag of Rs 9.09 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

With this, the Bonneville range in India extends to a total of five model offerings – Street Twin, Bonneville T100, Bonneville T120, Thruxton R along with the Bobber.

Right at first glance it is evident where the motorcycle derives its name from – the ‘bob job’ motorcycles which were made in America during the 60s.

Powering this beauty is the 1200cc parallel twin engine that is derived from the T120 but has been tuned to deliver more power and better torque lower down the rev range. The unit on this delivers 76 horsepower and 106 Nm of torque and comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.

In terms of gadgetry, the bike gets electronic rider aids like Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), traction control and ride-by-wire system that allows for different rider modes.

Doing a ‘bob job’ on your motorcycle basically means that you strip it off of excessive bodywork in order to make the bike lighter and shorten the tail for shorter wheelbase which would result in added agility. The Bobber, then, sticks true to its name.

Interestingly, the rear-end of the motorcycle makes it look like a hard tail but it has a cleverly integrated monoshock suspension at the back. The sculpted fuel tank, spoked wheel design with wide tyres and bar-end rear view mirrors complete the retro look.

The Triumph Bonneville Bobber is certainly a looker and with its retro-modern styling, it creates a unique space for itself in the Indian motorcycle market but in terms of price, it will be competing against the likes of the Indian Scout Sixty and the Harley-Davidson Street Bob.
