“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

Triumph Bonneville bobber spied


HERE’S a surprise new bobber edition of Triumph’s Bonneville, spotted being tested near the firm’s Spanish development facility near Barcelona.
It uses a new liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine believed to be around 1100cc, offering significantly greater performance than the current Bonnie’s 865cc air-cooled twin. Power is expected to be up from 69hp to around 100hp.
The bobber is one of a whole new family of models which Triumph is developing around the new liquid-cooled engine, including a replacement for all the existing Bonneville range, which includes the wire-spoke-wheeled T100, café race-styled Thruxton, Scrambler and base edition. There's also a new, sportier café racer which was photographed during tests last year, using upside-down forks and Brembo calipered twin-disc front brakes and powered by the same 1100cc engine.  
The new engine’s twin cylinders retain fins for a classic look but the bike’s large radiator shows it’s actually water that’s doing the cooling.
The solo seat and swing-arm design contribute to a hard-tail bobber look.
The exhaust diverts into a catalytic converter visible underneath the engine in our picture, while a cover over the junction in the pipe creates the look of a straight-through system.  
Although the machine looks production-ready, it's anticipated to be a 2017 model. Other editions of the new Bonneville range are expected to be unveiled this autumn for production next year.
It's part of a major development push by Triumph for 2016, with other models on the way including a new Speed Triple and Tiger Explorer.
