Triumph’s Bobber and Bobber Black give credit to the term often used as ‘factory custom’, but despite their authentic post-war look, both variants manage to deliver a thoroughly modern ride that performs better than the retro style does not suggest it. Triumph has managed to wring out another variation of its 1,200cc liquid-cooled Bonneville (HT) parallel twin engine derived from the T120, but in this application it’s a gem, producing 77 hp and 78 pounds. couple feet. While both may contain the same 1,200cc parallel-twin engine and chassis architecture, the Black model increases the spec list a bit, with a meatier (but smaller) 16-inch front wheel shod with a Avon Cobra tire, and gains an extra brake disc up front, while also sliding into a more rugged 47mm Showa cartridge fork to go with that big front donut. The Black’s headlight is LED and you also get cruise control. Other than that, the Black model is well and truly murdered, with the exhaust, engine, bars, hubs, levers, etc. all clad in ebony paint.
