First ride: Triumph Bobber Black review - page 2


Don’t let that put you off. There’s nothing wrong with being a lot like the original Bobber.

When we tested it against the Thruxton R earlier this year, we made it our winner. Although the Thruxton R is easily the fastest, the Bobber is the one that goes faster than you feel it ought to.

That’s a pleasant surprise every time you get on the Bobber. And this is a Bobber – in black.
