Bonneville Bobber family gets its’ new member, Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black. The presentation of the bike was made in addition to the debut of Triumph Bonneville Speed master. Bobber Black would be a 2018 model. The new bike in town is graced with an all-black theme and several other features too.
The largest British motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph Motorcycles Ltd, presented both the bikes: Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster and Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black. The company made an addition to the Bonneville Bobber line-up with this new model. The company is 115 years old and the model is the fastest selling motorcycle in the company’s history. The traits of the brand-new model in the market by the British motorcycle manufacturer differs from its predecessor. It gets some added features over the standard Bonneville Bobber and is themed all black unlike the other bikes under the brand-name.
Under the all-black theme, the buyers are still offered with color options. The company is manufacturing the Bobber Black in two shades, these are the jet black and the matt jet black. The two-wheeler is designed exceptionally. Its parts, side panels, exhaust, clutch, engine, brake, gear pedals, are colored with shades of black. Brake levers and the fuel tank also come in the list.
The company was aiming to introduce a dark and mean stripe to its new manufacturing, Bonneville Bobber. The pictures of the motorcycle are the proof that the company has thrived its idea in doing so. If we talk about the modifications which the two-wheeler manufacturer has introduced in the Bobber Black, it is equipped with brakes at the front with an updated version. The new configuration of the brakes is 310mm Brembo twin-disc setup which have been incorporated in the Bonneville Bobber Black. Earlier, a single disc brakes were used on the standard Bobber.
At the front of the Bobber Black, strapping of the Showa forks is done at 47 mm diameter in comparison to 41 mm diameter on the regular Bobber. The wheel up front of the motorcycle are made coarser. And it is wrapped with a 16-inch wire-spoked unit with a fatter tire. A full LED units with a DRL (daytime running light) headlamp are placed on the two-wheeler’s bump. The standard feature which the bike manufacturer company has made in it is the cruise control. Also, a major difference in the weight of the two bikes is there. The standard Bobber is 9.5 kg lighter than the Bobber Black.
The out of the ordinary feature of the bike is its two-riding mode: road and rain. You need not worry about the weather outside, just get on your two-wheeler and enjoy the ride. The bike accompanied by switchable traction control and ABS is characterized with ride-by-wire trait.
Liquid-cooled engine of 1,200 cc works at high torque like the standard Bobber motorcycle. The clutch of the bike gets torque-assistance which allows the rider to shift from one gear to the other very quickly. A 6-speed transmission engine finds place in the new member of Bonneville family. If we talk about mechanical terms, the bike makes 76 bhp at 6,100 revolutions per minute. Whereas, 106 Nm is the value of the top torque of the motorcycle at 4,000 rpm.
