I couldn't get it to work till now but have no sound. Have they said what size the bobber engine is yet? 900 or 1200.

Anyone noticed where they've put the ignition key? When they finally integrated the ignition switch combined with the steering lock on the new twins, they go and abandon it on the bobber...on the plus side you can change the angle of the speedo by a hand lever, something you'll do once during the entire period of ownership.

Looks like the 1200, judging by the twin throttle bodies.

I know it's not for everyone, but this is the exact bike I've been waiting for from Triumph for the last 5 years. Can't wait to buy one.

It's the 1200 motor with a Bobber tune setup for low end torque. They have the page live on the UK site, including a promo video:

I think it's cool! (Not my cup of tea, but COOL!)
I was just on Triumph UK's Bobber micro-site that they already have up and running... It's got the T-120 HT engine... So one can assume the same HP & torque figures.

Also, for all those with a new Water Cooled Bonneville, it looks like they are going to offer Bar-End 'Peep' mirrors... Basically look just like the CRG 'Lane-Splitter' type bar-end mirror style... I'll have to Peep them, once they are out in the public to be seen in person.
