If you’re new to the world of motorcycles then you’re unlikely to be aware of the benefits of these particular parts of your Triumph Bobber, and exactly what they can do for your ride.
In this articles, we aim to give you a brief yet comprehensive insight into the purpose behind these particular parts of the Bobber and why you might consider making a few modifications to yours.
Triumph Bobber Skid Panel
As the name suggests, skid panels are designed first and foremost to protect the underside of your bike from any possible damage. Although they are more synonymous with off-road models, they are an absolute must if you want to avoid having to take trips to the mechanic on a regular basis and keep your Triumph Bobber in tip-top condition.
However, just because Triumph Bobber skid panels are essential doesn’t mean they can’t look good. At Tamarit, we never compromise on aesthetics. If you’re wanting to maintain that heritage-race feel without putting your precious engine in harms way, then a brushed alloy skid panel with an anodized finish could be just the thing you’re looking for.
And if that wasn’t enough to convince you, these parts are made to withstand the test of time, so think of it as a chic investment as opposed to an expense. The best bit is that these skid panels can be easily installed from the comfort of your own garage using the installation instructions. That said, it’s always worth running through the installation with a member of the Tamarit team before reaching for your toolbox.
Triumph Bobber Belly Pans
Now we’ve got our heads around the benefits of a skid panel, it’s time to turn our attention to Triumph Bobber belly pans. Alike the skid panel, the belly pan does also perform a protective role. In this case, the exposed exhaust manifolds are shielded from damage.
The belly pan’s function doesn’t end there though. Situated on the lower front section of the Triumph Bobber, just behind the front wheel, its main function is to boost the aerodynamics of the motorcycle and add stability.
The belly pan is an accessory that hasn’t always been considered necessary in the biking world. If we head back in time a few decades, the main aim of most bikers was to reduce weight and increase speed, meaning that seemingly superfluous parts were removed. It wasn’t until bikers began their fight against air resistance that the belly pan became popular.
At Tamarit Motorcycles we have a range of Triumph Bobber belly pans available in a wide range of high-quality fiberglass, aluminium, and stainless steel. Most are available to match the original Triumph standard color or unpainted, meaning you can customize it accordingly.
It’s important to note that belly pan models are made to suit specific models, so if you’re in any doubt about which one to choose then don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of the team for some expert advice.
