It’s funny how fashions change and new trends quickly become the established norms. Take the bobber look for example. Nowadays, bobber styling revolves around a set of fat balloon tyres, however back in 1940s post-war America the first bobbers were very different. During this era, riders ripped any excess weight off bikes to create stripped-back machines (‘bobber’ is derived from the term bob-tailed, alluding to their cut down rear mudguards).
This is why with their first Bobber, launched late last year, Triumph gave it the same front end as the Bonneville T120, keeping true to tradition. But with the Bobber Black, Triumph have gone for the modern bobber look. Watch more above.
