Question New Models? The Bobber 'Family'...?

A bit of fun here chaps..

I was on my Bobber all day yesterday. Had a great time but on those long desert roads I got to thinking about Triumphs eagerly anticipated Bobber TFC launch and wondered what Triumph would do after all the TRC's are done.

Are you listening Triumph?

I was thinking they could do a whole family of bikes based on the Bobber:

The Bobber 'Chopper' - using the 2017 bike as a base but with higher bars and a fat rear wheel with short fender.

The Bobber 'Cafe' - clip-ons with a Thruxton motor (how cool would that be) and upgraded suspension.

The Bobber 'Classic Tourer' - Speedy tank, heavy duty rear mudguard with rack & panniers.

The Bobber 'Family' - A throw-back to the old days with Watsonian sidecar attached...


What model would you like to see added to the 'Bobber Family'?

Cheerio,

Roy

P.s. If you're going to steal this great idea Triumph then at least throw me a new bike...

quite frankly I would just like to see Triumph stock their dealerships with goodies the same as H-D do...instead of having to order on-line

I hear you on that Diver,

It would also be nice if there was a dealer that wasn't hours away from me

Cheerio,

I'd like to see them use the Bobber and with some modifications, re-create the Blackbird





and yes, add the rear center stand!

Wonder what a Bobber with a sidecar would look like?

I like the idea of doing the fenders, headlamp & gauges like the old bike.

I agree 100%. However, a lot of dealers don't want to carry a lot of accessory inventory. It's money that they have to pay out and the accessories might not get sold.

That said, the parts manager at the dealership that I go to can get parts fairly quickly but it would be fun to pick up stuff on a whim.

A sidecar model would be fantastic! I would order one tomorrow if it were available.

That Blackbird looks awesome! A remake of that, with an optional sidecar, would be an amazing buying option.
