The Bobber has been one of Triumph’s most popular motorcycles and the 2021 model has all the previous generation Bobber’s authenticity and adds all of the Bobber Black’s category-defining capability.
Significant updates include enhanced engine performance, higher specification technology and equipment, and an all-new blacked-out, chunkier style.
The Bobber is powered by Triumph’s latest generation Bonneville 1200cc, high-torque British twin-engine. The charismatic 270-degree firing interval gives a beautifully smooth and linear power delivery, with the new engine delivering a notable lift at 5,500 rpm. Peak torque is 106Nm at a low 4,000 rpm, and peak power is 78PS at 6,100 rpm.
Riding distance is also enhanced by the new, larger, 12 litre fuel tank which gives you up to 33% more range. Triumph’s ride-by-wire system ensures precise throttle control and enables the two enhanced riding modes – ‘Road’ and ‘Rain’. These adjust both the throttle response and traction control settings to add to confidence and safety in all conditions.
The 2021 Triumph Bobber now features a 16” fat front wheel and new, chunkier 47mm front forks, giving a really muscular and imposing front end presence. The new front wheel is complemented by Bobber’s wide rear wheel setup. Both have a classic wire-spoked design, with black rims. The Avon Cobra tyres have been specifically developed for the Bobber, with lightweight construction for excellent high-speed manoeuvrability and class-leading stability.
The Bobber is equipped with premium Brembo 2-piston calipers and twin discs while on the rear is a single-disc set up. Triumph ABS and switchable traction control are standard for added safety and security.
Central to the Bobber’s authentic hard-tail look is the floating aluminium seat, with monoshock suspension and distinctive “swing-cage” swinging arm. The seat is ergonomically optimised and sculpted for comfort, with a beautifully stitched deep foam pad. The seat height is only 690mm, making it an extremely accessible motorcycle to ride.
The Bobber has all of the signature hallmarks including minimal steel fenders with a centre ridge and return edge, wide flat bars with broad, adjustable levers, sculpted top yoke, rubber gaiters, classic rear ‘drum brake’ inspired hub, side-mounted ignition barrel, black painted bar end mirrors, LED bullet indicators and a new, signature full LED headlight.
For added visibility, for 2021 the headlight features Triumph’s signature LED Daytime Running Light. And adding to the minimalist style for 2021 are new black engine covers, cam cover and sprocket cover, giving the Bobber a new, meaner, moodier edge.
For 2021 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 more integrated warning lights. The multi-function display is controlled by an easily accessible handlebar mounted scroll button.
The new 2021 generation Bobber comes in three distinctive colour options, with a new Matt Storm grey and Matt Ironstone scheme, a new Cordovan Red scheme, and a classic Jet Black option.
With a range of 77 genuine Triumph accessories on offer, including an alternative high bar set-up, luggage and choice of seating options, and its class leading adjustable seating and foot peg position, the Bobber has been designed for riders to adapt to suit them and their style.
