Triumph releases Bonneville Bobber Black

By Jack Evans

Triumph has revealed the Bonneville Bobber Black – a more aggressive take on the British motorcycle manufacturer’s fastest-selling bike.

Featuring a black painted exhaust, black brake pedal and black-powder coated engine covers, the Bobber Black is a meaner-looking version of the popular Bonneville. It shares the same 1,200cc engine, but receives the highest-specification brakes available in the Bonneville line-up. Brembo twin-piston calipers sit over 310mm front discs, while a single rear disc provides braking performance at the back of the bike.

Full ABS is included as standard, as are two selectable riding modes – Road and Rain. While both deliver full power, Rain mode gives better control and safety in tricky riding conditions.

The Bobber Black also features a new, black painted twin straight line exhaust with sawn-off peashooter silencers for a true custom appearance.

A large 16-inch front wheel with black wire spokes gives the Bobber Black an even more muscular stance.


The front end of the Bobber Black benefits from a full LED headlight with LED daytime running lights. Cruise control makes long-distance rides a little more comfortable too, and is operated via a single button mounted into the left-hand switch cube.

A release date, as well as prices for the new Bonneville Bobber Black, are yet to be revealed.
