Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

Following the big success of the Bonneville Bobber the company has taken the model to new heights for the 2018 my, with the darker, meaner and stronger Bonneville Bobber Black. The new steed is characterized by Triumph’s highest specification brakes in the Bonneville line up including ABS as standard; the Bobber Black features 310mm twin discs on the front with twin Brembo two-piston calipers and a single rear disc setup with single piston caliper. The suspension also sees an upgrade from the Bobber spec with chunky 47mm Showa cartridge front forks (vs 41mm on the Bobber), offering 90mm front wheel travel for improved feel and feedback. The new “fat” 16-inch front wheel (vs 19-inch on the Bobber), still with classic wire spokes, black rims, and the specially-developed Avon Cobra tyres, gives the Bobber Black its meaner and more muscular stance. Longer distance cruising is also easier on the Bobber Black, thanks to cruise control as standard, easily accessible as a single button elegantly moulded into the left-hand switch cube. Moreover the front end of the Bobber Black is transformed with the new 5” full-LED headlight with LED daytime running light pattern (DRL). The Bobber Black is available in either a classic gloss Jet Black or a stylish Matt Jet Black. Triumph Motorcycle will be at EICMA 2017, pavilion 15, booth C46.
