Found some photos of the 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber at EICMA this year. No she doesn't come with the bike :rolleyes:

Didn't even notice the girl, I was too busy staring at the first Bobber and that green/white painted tank.

May need to heat wrap the exhaust pipe with how close her leg is to the pipe.

When she rests her foot down it definitely is super close to the exhaust pipe. I would hate to put a wrap on that beautiful pipe but it does seem necessary. The green and white one makes the Triumph logo stand out so much, it's great.

Was waiting for an opportunity that would make me like that green even more and this was it, probably the next best thing to seeing it in person.

It's just too bad they kept everything else in black. If I can find a vinyl wrap that comes close to the OEM paint then I might just experiment with it and playing around with potential color scheme's.

Everything on the Bobber has so much personality, until you get to the exhaust. I may need to get an aftermarket one or at least wrap it in something so it's not just one long silver metal tube.

I actually really like the simplicity of that exhaust, I would end up changing it but nonetheless, I do like it. But @frank , what other pieces would you want to wrap in that green?

The peashooter muffler looks fine to me and it's supposed to have a great raw sound. Won't know how true that is until publications start test riding them.

That shouldn't take too long for us to get a soundclip as the reviews are slowly coming out

That first video. He did exactly what I was hoping he'd do. Really take off with it so I could hear the exhaust under heavy load. It's really not that loud at all but it has a very nice deep tone to it.

Oh, that last takeoff sounded heavenly to my ears. A symphony of tire squeals and exhaust.

Great that triumph did their best to hide all the wires for a very clean look.
