2017 Triumph Bobber 1200

Available now is a 2017 Triumph Bobber 1200. This bike came to Tiger with just 7,788 miles and in immaculate condition.

 

The 1200cc Bobber takes its styling cues from post-WWII era bikes that were simplified and customized, with long sweeping lines and a low stance. The 2017 model is powered by a 1200cc, fuel-injected, parallel-twin that cranks out 77 hp and 78 lb-ft of torque. It was also named Cruiser of the Year for 2017 thanks to more sophisticated suspension and engine technology. True to the bobber heritage the bike wears beefy Avon tires around a 16-inch rear wheel, features short fenders hung on a structural hoop of round bar, and even a solo tractor seat adorned with brass “Triumph” nameplate to really bring home that golden era feel. The bobber also sports a 19′ front wheel, twin front disc brakes, and 47mm Showa cartridge forks to complete the front end, giving the bike a chunky look while being completely functional and a capable, modern motorcycle.

 

The hardtail look is deceiving since the rear of the bike is suspended by a central mono-shock and coilover spring set-up, maintaining the look while helping to maintain comfort and grip on dicey road surfaces. Triumph added a few tech bits for the model including drive-by-wire throttle for smooth input and cruise control. The slip-assist clutch is light and accurate, the throttle response flawless and the gears slip effortlessly through the six-speed box.

 

Around town, the exhaust has a quiet resonance, and the Bobber cruises near 3500rpm doing 70mph almost silently. Rip the throttle out of a corner and the twin, slash-cut pipes groan out an invigorating wail. Electronic traction control may do you some favors as the torque pile on with the revs. Fuel capacity is small thanks to the classic teardrop tank but with a claimed 69mpg you’ll have plenty of roads to chew up before stopping to refill, so long as you’re not trying to cross the country in record time.
