Triumph working on new Bonneville Bobber based cruiser

Triumph seems to be leaving no segment untapped. After having launched the Bobber recently, the British bike manufacturer is now working on a cruiser motorcycle based on the Bobber platform. The Bobber has become quite popular almost instantly after it was launched, and that might be the reason to build other products around it.

The bike was spotted testing in Spain, near Triumph’s manufacturing facility. When launched, it will rival a few of Harley-Davidson models.

The new Bobber based cruiser will share the same chassis & the T120 sourced parallel-twin engine, but in a more cruiser suited format. The bike spotted looked almost production ready, with no parts looking like a prototype. You can see, the cruiser also has a spot for the rider to place his legs on the front guard while cruising.

Prominent changes on this model include the handlebar, new riding position, new foot peg position, new seats, pillion seat back support, new mirrors and expect new decals / badges & paint options.

Expect Triumph to launch this bike as a 2018 model in the coming months. Indian debut could happen around the end of this year.
