This is what happens when profanity takes the high road

“Evil” is a complex thing. Sometimes evil is justified, and this is one of those times where Evil is all you want to be riding on.

Calling it a “pure Bonneville hot rod” the British manufacturer captured the American way of the ‘30s when they launched the brutally beautiful factory custom Bonneville Bobber last year. Now, the same guys went high on vile and have revealed a dark amalgamation of the mechanicals and stature of that very bike.

Its called the Bonneville Bobber Black. The one with some wicked demeanor.

The Bonneville Bobber has been the most successful model for Triumph in all of its 115-year history. It was the fastest selling model ever and was leaving the showroom floors as fast as they could make it.

The Brits want to even further this unprecedented success for clientele having a slightly different taste. So what does Triumph do? Gives them the meaner and stronger Bonneville Bobber Black that carries the same authentic custom styling but gets an all-new aggressive attitude to flaunt.

As the name suggests, this Bobber is the stealth version of the original Bonneville Bobber. It gets blacked out on just about everything including the wheels, the exhaust, the headlight shroud, the saddle, the levers, handlebars, engine covers – the list goes on.

Regarding overall design, the entire silhouette of the Bobber Black completely resembles that of the standard Bonneville Bobber. These minute but extravagant changes separate it from its sibling to give a menacing character.

The cockpit is exceptionally tidy, and the instrument panel looks great with a combination of digital and analog gauges and is given a black treatment. The twin ‘slash cut’ sawn-off peashooter exhaust unit is also getting a complete black paint job that showcases a demeanor hidden to bark out once you fire up this monster.

If you thought that the Bobber Black was all just a visual experiment, you are in for a surprise. The Black, in fact, gets an aggressive and more muscular stance, thanks to its ’fat’ 16-inch chunky black front wheel that replaces the original 19 inchers and a bigger 47mm front Showa cartridge forks rather than the 41mm KYBs’.

That’s not all. The Bobber Black also gets twin disc front brakes with Brembo calipers, similar to the ones used on the newly launched Speedmaster. It also shares the same full LED headlight with distinctive daytime running light along with the single button cruise control available on the Speedmaster.

Nevertheless, the heart of this Bobber is the same category-leading, high-torque Bonneville 1200cc engine with a dedicated Bobber tune. Triumph’s 1200cc gives this Bobber a power figure of 77 horses and 77 ft-lb of torque. The Bobber Black gets the unique twin airbox setup, carb-styled twin throttle bodies, special intake and exhaust system, output shaft, and elegant packaging that allows the straight-line exhausts to hide the Euro4-compliant catalytic converters.

Similar to the Bobber, the Bobber Black too will feature everything from riding modes (Road and Rain) to switchable traction control, ride-by-wire throttle, ABS, and a torque-assist clutch. Additionally, a single button cruise control from the Speedmaster also makes way here.

If all this fails to fit your bill, Triumph is offering you more than 120 ways to make your Bobber Black up the ante with even higher level of specification and capability with official accessories.
