The company has shown a new blacked-out version of its highly popular Bonneville Bobber, called the Bobber Black. Here’s what’s new.
The Bobber Black retains the features of the standard Bobber, but the company has taken the Bobber base and applied copious amounts of black to it. The parts that have been blackened are as follows:
• Black-painted exhaust (silencers, headers and upper finned casting)
• Black-anodised brake pedal and footrests
• Black-anodised gear lever
• Black-plated gear linkage
• Black-anodised brake and clutch levers
• Black-painted handlebars, with black anodised risers and clamps
• Black-painted seat pan
• Black powder-coated engine covers, cam cover and sprocket cover
• Black chrome-plated headlight rim
• Black-painted wheel hubs
Here’s what’s new mechanically:
On the front, the bike gets a massive overhaul, there’s a new 16-inch rim and a fat 130-section tyre. Triumph has added a second disc brake to the front end and there’s a powerful new, full-LED headlamp as standard fitment.
Cruise control is now standard and the bike continues to offer ABS and switchable traction control as well as two riding modes – Road and Rain. The bike continues to be powered by a 1,200cc parallel-twin engine, producing 77hp at 6,100rpm and 106Nm. You can get the bike in two shades, Jet Black and Matt Black. There are a huge range of over 120 accessories you can choose from to customise your bike. Expect a slight bump over the cost of the standard Bobber.
