Wow, your take on Handling is a bad look for Triumph, they specifically wanted to place a special emphasis on Handling. But that might vary from person to person as i'm seeing review that talk positively about its handling.Nice review - thanks !
I also found the handling strange to begin with, as i was unsure how to trust the feeedback from the Avons or how to use my body in the turns due to the riding position. However, the more i use the bike the more i enjoy it!
I did some emergency brake test runs today (four fingers + rear brake). Although the brakes lack initial bite, they are indeed plenty strong enough (for a Bobber!) once the front tire is warm.
Also - I have to say - the traction control is amazing. It works in the background without hindering the riding experience AT ALL.
Great review! Sounds like the Bobber's handling and ergonomics is just something you'll have to get used to before it becomes natural. Probably a learning curve for those coming from sport bikes. Aside from that, you didn't have many complaints at all.The very new Triumph Bobber is a really cool motorcycle, I had a great day riding it on the coast and I hope you will enjoy this review and my motovlog!
Back then, my wife was my girlfriend. If i tried to pull such a stunt today i would find myself with a sore ear and an empty stomach :wink2:That's definitely an impressive bike history list but gosh darn, talk about living the dream! Tried bringing a bike into the house one time and the misses nearly threw both me and the bike out for good.. Never trying that one again.
Spot on. I absolutely love the way the Bobber looks, sounds, feels and goes. Zero complaints!Sounds like the Bobber's handling and ergonomics is just something you'll have to get used to before it becomes natural. Probably a learning curve for those coming from sport bikes.
