Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the updated 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber for Rs 11.75 lakh (ex-showroom). Revealed in February this year, the updated Bonneville Bobber is part of the 2021 Bonneville family. All models in the Modern Classics range receive a slew of updates to inject some visual freshness improving performance and comfort. At its new price, the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber is well over Rs 1.4 lakh, more expensive than the previous iteration of the Bobber but packs in some key additions.
Among vital changes for the 2021 Triumph, Bonneville Bobber is a larger, 12-liter fuel tank – up from the previous model’s 9-liter tank – and there is no Bobber Black anymore. Still, its features and specifications have been incorporated into the standard Bobber.
So, the Bobber now gets a 16-inch front wheel as standard, shod in fat Avon Cobra rubber. What’s also new for 2021 are the standard twin 310mm discs up front with two dual-piston calipers by Brembo, a fatter, 47mm Showa fork (replacing the 41mm KYB fork). An all-LED headlight and cruise control are now standard as well. These are essentially the features of the outgoing Bobber Black, which have now been included on the standard bike since there is no Bobber Black variant now.
Additionally, the instruments feature a new bezel, including a metallic embellisher with subtle Bonneville branding. There’s a new dial face with translucent silver markings and integrated warning lights. A total of three colour options will be available for the Bobber – Matt Storm grey with Matt Ironstone, a new Cordovan Red scheme, and a classic Jet-black option.
The Bobber continues to be powered by the same 1,200 cc ‘High Torque’ twin-cylinder engine as before and makes 78 hp and 106 Nm of torque. This BS6-compliant engine is more responsive than its BS4 version, with a ‘smoother and fuller’ torque curve. As before, the Bobber gets two ride modes as well – Rain and Road – which alter throttle response and traction control settings to suit riding conditions better.
Speaking at the launch of the 2021 Bobber, Shoeb Farooq, Business Head – Triumph Motorcycles India, said, “The Triumph Bobber has always had a demand among Indian customers, and due to this, we decided to bring the Bobber back after a gap of 1 year. The 2021 Bobber features new updates, with the blacked-out finishing giving the motorcycle a more stunning appeal. I’m sure the Bobber will make it to the garages of enthusiasts who have an eye for beautiful motorcycles with engaging performance.
