Between tradition and innovation, the Triumph Bobber asserts itself as a true masterpiece of the motorcycle industry.

The history of the Triumph brand and its legendary heritage.

Triumph Motorcycles, an iconic British brand, was founded in 1885 under the name "Triumph Safety Cycle Co.". Initially, the company manufactured bicycles, but it quickly turned to motorcycle production by 1902.

From its inception, Triumph distinguished itself with its passion for innovation and commitment to quality. The brand saw rapid success throughout the 20th century, becoming one of the world's largest motorcycle manufacturers.

 

TRIUMPH BOBBER

The modern Triumph Bobber is a true masterpiece of design and technology. Its neo-retro style is inspired by the Bobber models of yesteryears while incorporating modern and sophisticated elements.

Its minimalist design is accentuated by clean lines, a round LED headlight, and a minimalist taillight. The large fuel tank and the rear bobtail are distinctive elements that give the Bobber a unique and recognizable silhouette.

Technically, the Bobber is equipped with a 1200cc twin-cylinder engine delivering 77 horsepower and 110 Nm of torque. This engine offers generous power and torque, providing thrilling sensations with every acceleration.

The chassis is designed for optimal maneuverability, with a sturdy steel frame and supple suspension. The Bobber is also equipped with high-performance brakes and a standard ABS system, ensuring maximum safety.

In terms of performance, the Bobber is an agile and responsive motorcycle, perfect for rides on winding roads as well as urban commutes. Its low riding position and low center of gravity provide precise control and a feeling of freedom.

A bold neo-retro design:

  • The seat combines an upward curved steel frame with an Alcantara seating and an integrated LED taillight.
  • The headlight is housed in a Polyamide 12 fairing and equipped with a Highsider LED beam.
  • A black ceramic Remus exhaust completes the aggressive look.


Meticulous details and Vagabund signature:

  • Lowered handlebar, aluminum tank cap, and Motogadget Motoscope Tiny speedometer.
  • Raisch front fender, petal discs, LED turn signals, and black fork with integrated turn signals.
  • Characteristic Vagabund livery: matte and glossy black, subtle logos, and touches of yellow.

Price and availability:

The RxV Triumph Bobber is available in limited series at a price of $38,675  (approximately €35,000).

 

BAAK X BOBBER MOON

 The Lyon workshop BAAK took on the 2020 version of the Bonneville Bobber 1200 and turned it into a superb machine. But this project goes beyond mere aesthetics.
BAAK X TRIUMPH BOBBER MOON



The goal of BAAK was to make the Triumph Bobber more "authentic" while adding a bit of their DNA. 

BAAK chose a "Springer" style spring fork (more common on Harley-Davidson) and designed and machined a fork yoke kit to fit it. They also machined a new steering column and a new front wheel axle, as well as various brake parts allowing them to retain most of the original braking system.

The rear shock absorber was replaced by a custom unit, co-designed and manufactured by Shock Factory in France.

A striking visual element is the addition of disc wheels, called "Moon wheels" by Julien. They were ordered from an American manufacturer and are mounted with Avon Safety Mileage MKII tires.

They replaced the airbox system with more efficient filters and installed new stainless steel headers and aluminum silencers.

Transmission is now done by a low-maintenance belt, developed by the Italian company Free Spirits.

The electrical wiring was more delicate because the removal of the bulky original airbox revealed a large portion of the original cable harness. BAAK thus fabricated a leather cover to conceal it all.

Clever details also include compact LED turn signals, a rear fender hugging the tire, a luxurious new leather seat, and a discreet mirror under the handlebar. Even the license plate holder is perfectly integrated into the construction.
