The 1200 Bobber hasn’t gained any boost to its peak outputs in the transition to Euro5 but Triumph promises that the Bobber’s ‘updated 2021 engine is more responsive, and its torque curve is fuller and smoother.’
A bigger 12-litre fuel tank has been added to the Bobber which is a huge 30 per cent improvement on the stingy nine-litre capacity of the original.
Bobber is suspended by 47 mm Showa cartridge forks but rides on a single rear shock, compared to the twin RSU rear ends seen on most of the 2021 Bonneville range.
Bobber features a fat 16-inch front rim while the rear is wider than before. The spoked rims are shod with Avon Cobra rubber. Twin-piston Brembo calipers are backed up by ABS and switchable traction control.
All Triumph motorcycles feature 16,000 km service intervals and the 2021 Bonneville range is expected to start arriving in Australia from the second quarter of 2021. Pricing is yet to be announced.
