Supercharged Bobber

https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=i&rc...39249345282878


This week's Motorcycle News (Brit paper) has a short article about a supercharged Bobber created by Triumph Glasgow. 135bhp, 90ft/lbs, £22995.


Looks tasty!

Just noticed that Triumph Glasgow are quoting 120bhp and 98ft/lb. That's probably the figures to believe!

Personally, I like it.

The problem being I don’t think it would pass EU ITV (MOT) inspections and especially since Spain are now rolling out mobile emission detectors that can check and send out fines on the spot regardless of whether the vehicle is moving or stationary with the engine running.
So cause of these new systems I won’t be adding any more engine upgrades to the Bobber and soon I may even have to revert back to stock...

That´s really bad, man!
But I think they will rather use in on the mainland than on your lovely little island, so you should be quite safe. At least I hope so.

Doesn´t matter what you ride... just ride!

Without getting all political....Boy am I glad we’re leaving the EU control freaks...

And to be clear I love Europe and European people’s and I especially love the food, wine and beer...

The DGT (traffic police/department) share all tech from mainland Spain and fines are big business on this Island.
I do feel for all the tourists who go down badly signed (and in Spanish only) roads that look “public” but are for permit holders only. They end up with massive(!) fines and have no idea why. Cameras & big brother everywhere!!

So you can be sure that this new radar will find its way here very quickly indeed.

Dear god, they don't even check bikes for emissions here in the UK during an MOT, sod that coming over the water!

Back on track with the article - they say a top end of 130 on the supercharged one, how did they bypass the ECU limits there I wonder?

================================================== =============
0-60 in .......oh! wait.... I really don't care anymore (but it's still 1200cc of raw throbbing Trumpet so bugger off Mr.Scooter!)

They are only tests and only in Madrid. If you have the catalyst (not x-pipe) I do not think you have problems. Exhaust tails only muffle noise. The police can sometimes make you a noise test but they have to stop the vehicle beforehand and rarely do it.

I have an xpipe, but as you said may have to put the OEM converter back on and only be “noise illegal”...

I don't think Brexit will make the UK any more lenient on emissions than Europe..
