Honorable Mention in CycleWorld

CycleWorld posted a list of the top 10 new motorcycles for 2017 that they are dying to ride. Now the Triumph Bobber wasn't listed on there....

Only because they've already ridden it, otherwise it would have been!

BUT the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber did make it to a separate list down the article under the Honorable Mentions that they said to consider as the "10 Bikes We're Dying To Ride Again in 2017" and the Bobber made it to #2 right under the KTM 1290 Super Duke R.

Triumph has done a great job with its Bonneville platform, ultimately creating a very unique lineup that offers something for everybody. And, okay, the Bobber isnít for everyone, since it only comes with a solo seat and no passenger seat option. Itís an incredibly fun motorcycle though, and much more comfortable than it might appear. It handles the twisty stuff well, too. All that is to say, yes, weíre absolutely trying to get one for a long-term testÖ

The Bobber has been pretty publicized ever since its reveal so I'm not surprised to see it get a honorable mention.
Wouldn't mind reading about a long term test ride from CycleWorld. There's only so much you can learn from a short day ride.

A long-term test is always great, it sometimes involves them doing some maintenance to it as well which is always a good read. They take it out and sometimes get stuck in less desirable conditions and let you know how the bike performed in crunch time.

that comes to no surprise at all since Triumph made it for mass appeal in terms of what the current buyers in the motorcycle market wants, and what new buyers will be looking for and might better appeal to.

They did a **** good job and that's without a doubt. Especially considering these guys test bikes all the time, for them to be eager to want to take it for long term testing says a lot.
