The new Triumph Bonneville range uses liquid-cooled engines instead of traditional air-cooled mills.
New spy shots of a Triumph Bonneville Bobber based cruiser has come up on MCN. The motorcycle was spotted last week in Spain near Triumph’s testing facility and looks almost production ready.
The bike is expected to be powered by the 1,200 cc SOHC, parallel twin mill from the Bonneville Bobber, coupled to a 6-speed gearbox. The engine is capable of producing 77 PS of maximum power at 6,100 rpm and 106 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm.
The hardtail cruiser based on the Triumph Bobber gets forward-mounted footpegs and controls, new rear sub-frame, provision for a pillion seat, and provision for luggage. The front wheel is a 16-inch unit and the headlamp unit appears slightly larger than the unit seen in the Bobber. All the lights get LEDs.
The Triumph Bonneville cruiser is also expected to retain features like traction control, ABS, ride by wire and selectable riding modes (two in the case of the Bobber).
The 2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber can be expected to have its formal presentation later this year, and when it goes on sale shortly after, it will be priced higher than the GBP 10,600 price tag of the Bobber.
