Triumph's Bonneville Bobber and Street Scrambler hit UK dealers
The hotly anticipated Bonneville Bobber and Street Scrambler, are landing in UK dealers with a series of launches on Thursday 23rd February. And it looks like the love it or hate it Bonneville Bobber factory custom will be taking centre stage.
Whether or not the idea of a factory bobber ticks the boxes for you, Triumph's take impressed us on the launch ride. The 1200cc tuned high torque engine proved itself tractable and handling wasn't nearly as cruiser-like as we expected. You can check out our ride report below:
The starting price tag is £10,500, but where Triumph's models are concerned there are of course a vast arry of customisable parts to get the Bobber looking the way you want - be that high rise monkey bars or a more streamlined look.
Then there's the all-new Street Scrambler, the more dirt orientated addition to the Street Twin family. Everyday rideability with enough fun thrown in, the Street Scrambler brings a significant update in capability and style to the original iconic Triumph Scrambler.
The Street Scrambler starts at £8,900, and once again there are plentiful personalisation options with over 150 accessories to choose from. For fans after a more classic take though, you will be pleased to know the T100 and T100 Black will also be in attendance.
Taking the same cues from the 900cc powered Street Twin, the T100 range has all the accessibility but with the detail of a true Bonneville model. And from Spring 2017, it's good news for A2 license holders as the T100 and T100 Black will also come with the option of a dealer fitted A2 licence kit.
