2021 Bonneville Bobber: A Costly Affair
Beauty comes at a price and therefore, the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber has been introduced with a price tag of INR 11.75 lakh
Triumph Motorcycles has updated the Bonneville Bobber 2021 and introduced it at INR 11.75 lakh in the country. This news came merely after two days,Triumph introduced their two limited edition motorcycles such as the Street Scrambler 900 Sandstorm and Scrambler 1200 Steve McQueen Edition. The two motorcycles were added to the ‘Modern Classics’ line-up of the British manufacturer in India.
Talking about the Bobber at the launch event, Shoeb Farooq, the Business Head of 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.”
Before we jump into the spec sheet of the newly introduced Bobber, let us inform you that the motorcycle has become costlier with time. In 2017 when the Bonneville Bobber arrived, it carried an ex-showroom price of around INR 10.30 lakh. Two years later, in 2019, the Triumph Bonneville arrived with a price tag of INR 12.15 lakh. Indeed, the 11.75 lakh price tag of the 2021 model is cheaper than the 2019 model but it is certainly not cheap and that is a major let-down for us. Nonetheless, let us run you through the spec sheet of the motorcycle.
The Triumph Bonneville Bobber 2021 has been updated to comply with the Euro 5 and BSVI norms. The motorcycle draws power from a 1,200cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine with a crank angle of 270 degrees.
The motorcycle churns out a maximum power of 76hp at 6,100rpm and a peak torque of 106Nm at 4,000rpm.
In terms of features, the motorcycle has received an all-new 16-inch wire-spoked wheel at the front with a twin-disc setup. Apart from these fresh additions, the motorcycle is equipped with a ride-by-wire system with riding modes such as rain and road. The motorcycle is equipped with a 12-litre petrol tank but we feel it may not be sufficient given the size of the engine. To deal with horrible roads full of potholes, the Bobber is armed with a 47mm fork setup on the front and for midnight rides; it comes with an LED headlight unit.
Last but not least, the motorcycle is available in four colour options such as Matt Storm, Matt Ironstone, Cordovan Red and Jet Black.
