Sometimes – just sometimes – we’re guilty of launch fever: hysteria surrounding a certain bike triggered by sunny climes, sexual roads in foreign lands and a damn good post-ride piss-up. Not this time. Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber will taste just as good in Blighty as it did in on the launch in Madrid, even sober, and Hinckley deserves the unconditional praise lavished upon its latest steed.
There’s no doubting its Marmite status (and consequent impact on the motorcycle fraternity) but it’s a bike that packs as much into the ride as it does in the cosmetics department. Sit back, grab a brew (or a pint) and revel in some Bobber-based cogitation. Apologies for the unsolicited audio issues. Bloody technology.
