Triumph Motorcycles India has launched the updated Triumph Bonneville Bobber 2021 priced at Rs 11.75 lakh (ex-showroom). Revealed in February this year, the updated Bonneville Bobber is part of the 2021 Bonneville family, with all models in the Modern Classics range receiving a host of updates aimed at injecting visual freshness and improving performance and comfort. At its new price, the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber costs well over Rs 1.4 lakh more expensive than the previous iteration of the Bobber but packs a few key additions.
Key changes for the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber include a larger 12 liter fuel tank – compared to the previous model’s 9 liter tank – and the fact that there is no longer Bobber Black, but its features and specifications have been incorporated into the standard Bobber.
Thus, the Bobber now receives a standard 16-inch front wheel, shod with large Avon Cobra rubber. Also new for 2021 are the standard 310mm dual discs up front with twin twin piston calipers from Brembo, a bigger 47mm Showa fork (replacing the 41mm KYB fork). A full LED headlight and cruise control are now also standard. These are basically the features of the outgoing Bobber Black, which have now been included on the standard bike, as there is no Bobber Black variant now.
Additionally, the instruments feature a new bezel, including metallic embellishment with subtle Bonneville branding. There’s a new dial with translucent silver markings and built-in warning lights. A total of three color options will be available for the Bobber – Matt Storm gray with Matt Ironstone, a new Cordovan Red scheme and a classic Jet-black option.
The Bobber continues to be powered by the same 1200cc ‘High Torque’ twin-cylinder engine as before and develops 78bhp and 106Nm of torque. This BS6-compliant engine is said to be more responsive than its BS4 version, with a “smoother and fuller” torque curve. As before, the Bobber also has two riding modes – Rain and Road – which alter throttle response and traction control settings to better suit riding conditions.
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 for this reason we have decided to bring back the Bobber after a one year interval. . The 2021 Bobber features new updates, with the blacked out finish giving the bike more stunning appeal. I’m sure the Bobber will find its way into the garages of enthusiasts looking for beautiful motorcycles with engaging performance.
