Rider Magazine First Ride Review

Reviews are starting to pour in and Rider Magazine had to chance to test one out. I didn't think the seat would be comfortable, but they said triumph put a lot of thought into it and its got ample padding.

The rain mode uses a more relaxed throttle map and I think that's what I'll be using most of the time for city riding.

Even if the seat isn't that comfortable, it can be easily changed and modified so there isn't much to worry about in that regard

Maybe the Bobber will surprise us all with its ergonomics. Jeff Holt from Hot Bike was amazed to feel no pain after a day of riding the bobber. It's one of the praises journalists are laying on the new model.

With the adjustability of it, I wouldn't doubt it at all. It seems very able to cater to a wide array of people in terms of ergo.

Triumph says it spent quite a bit of time on that seat, and it shows. It’s attached to a cantilevered arm bolted to the frame behind the gas tank, and locates the rider a comfortable reach from the bars, with the footpegs positioned for a 90-degree bend in the knees.
