As thrilling to look at as it is to ride, the ALL NEW BONNEVILLE BOBBER BLACK takes the iconic Bonneville line-up to a whole new level.
Darker, meaner and stronger, the new Bobber Black enjoys all of the classic Bobber’s category defining capability, iconic silhouette, hidden ‘clean line’ rider technology and engineering innovations and adds even more aggressive attitude and blacked-out muscular style, along with an even higher level of specification, including category leading Brembo front brake set-up with twin front discs, more muscular Showa forks and full-LED headlight.
The new Bobber Black features the critically acclaimed Bonneville 1200HT engine, with signature Bobber tune, for high-torque and more power lower down and in the mid-range than the Bonneville T120. The distinctive British Bonneville engine note is accompanied by the unique spine-tingling Bobber hot rod soundtrack, courtesy of its short, slash-cut, black painted exhausts and twin airbox set-up.
With the latest generation of Bonneville rider-focused-technology for enhanced control, comfort and safety.
Including two Riding Mode options – Rain and Road, switchable traction control, torque assist clutch, ABS, immobiliser and, unique to the Bobber Black, and intuitive single button cruise control.
With a fully blacked out style and even higher level of unique premium finishes - from the black chrome plated headlight rim to the unique black seat pan. The fat 16-inch front wheel, twin discs and imposing 47mm Showa front forks, give’s the new Bobber Black even more poise and on-road presence.
