“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.”

Spied! 2017 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Motorcycle

Extensive modifications would be required to back-half a new Triumph Bonneville and give it the rigid-frame look that has made the Harley-Davidson Softail platform so immensely popular. We can only surmise that Triumph’s design team has bent many lengths of steel tubing in the process of developing this prototype Bobber, spotted on a test run recently near Triumph’s design headquarters.

While displacement is a question mark (will it be the 900 or the 1200?), the Bonneville Bobber appears to share the current liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine as the current 2016 model, but it’s the back half of this Bonneville variant that piques our interest. Suspension appears to be a single-shock located beneath the solo seat with a triangulated swingarm pivoting just above axle height.

In truth, this bike has been spied before, but its reappearance suggests that Triumph is putting the finishing touches on it for a debut as a 2017 model, though there’s always a possibility that we might see this as a late-release 2016. The question is, will Bonnie fans be curious enough to wait for a  production Bobber? Give us your comments below and tell us what you think.
