When you have the Triumph Bonneville Bobber to ride around, not much else matters. In case you are wondering, yes, it adds to the Bonnie range, but no, it’s not just a skin job. The Triumph Bobber gets a new frame and suspension and the 1200cc engine is in a different state of tune, although shared with the Bonneville T120. It is a motorcycle to like at first glance, the stripped-down styling and loads of exquisite detailing makes the Triumph Bobber arguably the best-looking Triumph Bonneville at the moment.

You can choose to sit further back and lower or closer to the handlebar and slightly higher. Higher, of course, is only a relative description here as you can easily plant both your feet flat on the ground. The flat handlebar is within easy reach from the forward position for most and in case you like to reach out to the bars or are taller, you could slide the seat back. Even the instrument cluster has a little clip, which allows you to adjust the angle of the cluster facing you.
