That's a beautiful bobber and I'm guessing the Tours taking place around North America won't be as festive. Wish there's footage of that Bobber drag race, can't really see much from the small clip.

I can see how it won't be festive when it comes to getting potential owners involved but there's no reason why they can't have Triumph reps be as festive as we're seeing here or even taking it up a notch.

With America being one of the key markets for a product like this they should do something, any way to get riders interested beyond the typical marketing that every other brand does will do them a lot of good.

Did the one on the left fishtail a bit on takeoff? Either way, both took off pretty fast from a standstill.
She mentioned a press pack that Triumph was handing out. Wonder what's in there as she hasn't posted it on her blog yet. I assume it's prices and a list of available accessories.

Definitely got a little bit squirly on the launch. But I have no idea what that surface is made of so that could just be it. I can imagine it's not a properly prepped strip out in a warehouse lol.

That could be due to rider error more than the bike itself as the other one launched just fine. What grinds my gears is the video cutting off right when the Bobber was going down that ramp!

But I'm sure more videos are coming with the ongoing tour.

Here's one from the Triumph Bobber event in Arizona. It's not as exciting as the launch and there's no drag racing. Perhaps this will be the general outline for the other events too.

That looks a lot more in-line with how the launch party would be set regularly lol. But... do wish there was more drag racing to be honest. Nonetheless, it'll be interesting to see how it goes down in different places.

While there won't be any drag racing what he did mention is the fact there will be test rides happening once they get more Bobbers, and that's just about the best it gets aside from owning one. Getting tired of all the information currently out, it's self life is up and we need something new. Journalists don't have any juice left either.
