Triumph is now merging both model variants for 2021. The re is no longer a Bobber Black, but the normal Bobber receives (almost) everything that previously distinguished the Black. So we now have the 47-millimeter fork (in an improved form), the 16-inch front tire, the standard cruise control and the 5-inch LED headlights with LED daytime running lights. However, the normal bobber had the privilege of making some parts (such as the silencer) in chrome. If you take it very carefully, you could actually say: Triumph took the normal Bobber out of its range and modified the Black – but the British apparently preferred to see it differently.
Apart from this merging but there are also some solid news. Perhaps the most important: The tank volume rose from a measly nine to twelve liters. This means that you no longer have to go to every gas station, just every second one. It speaks for the skill of the Triumph designers that this extra fuel volume could be concealed well.
What else is new? The brake system receives improved discs and brake calipers from Brembo, the engine a Euro 5 update. This resulted in one horsepower more (now 78 hp), and thanks to reduced internal friction, the response behavior is said to have been improved. The engine also received new, black powder-coated covers.
Finally there is also a little decoration on the well-known display: It has a metallic cover and a slightly modified dial, making it look more valuable.
The extremely eye-catching Bonneville Bobber comes with two new colors in the new model year: a muted red and a two-tone variant made of matt gray / gray-brown (shown in our photos). Gloss black remains in the range. The prices are of course no longer based on the previous Bobber, but on the expired Bobber Black, on which it is actually based. 13,950 euros plus ancillary costs in Germany and 15,900 euros in Austria correspond to an increase of 200 euros on the previous Bobber Black. The market launch is in March 2021.
