Good Looks, Exciting Performance, And An Undeniable Pedigree

Triumph expands its record-setting Bonneville Bobber range this year with the new-for-2018 Bonneville Bobber Black. The “Black” builds on that success with more of the same stuff that made it a hit in the first place and some custom touches that give it more of a home-spun look right off the showroom floor. Already a thoroughly modern ride, the factory brushed it up with more tech even as it embraced even more retro-tastic features for an interesting duality of development, if you will. The Bonnie Twin mill delivers its 77 horsepower with the same characteristic ’tude we expect. What else does Trumpet have going on over there? Join me on my journey through this British wonderland and find out.

Top 7 Bobbers of 2018

Top 7 Bobbers of 2018

Stripping excess bodywork from a motorcycle, shortening the fenders and having a bob-tail

Minimalism and understatement do not always go hand in hand. In this case, it is the whole point of the design. Bringing the designs from their history books and fusing them with cues of early performance models, manufacturers catered to the ’bob-job’ from the 1930s through 1990s custom scene.

Stripping excess bodywork from a motorcycle, shortening the fenders and having a bob-tail, here is our list of the top seven Bobbers of 2018 that run on huge engines yet harks back to a different time – ostensibly the post-WWII era when returning servicemen stripped their bikes of all unnecessary weight for the sake of going faster.

A Retro-Appeal All Its Own

Ever since I got my first glimpse of the Triumph Bonneville Bobber at the 2016 Milan show I was eager to get to know it a little better. This was my absolute favorite bike at the show, which is saying something considering everything else that was happening. Now that all the metrics are known, I gotta’ say that my enthusiasm has been justified. A 1200 cc plant pushes the classic-looking frame that, much like Harley-Davidson’s Softail, comes built to look like an old hard-tail. The result is a modern ride with very deep roots that can be traced back to the Speed Twin 5T of the late ’30s. There are plenty of other little historical touches here and there, and though this is no replica piece, it can serve as a sort of rolling museum. Today, I’m going to delve into this collection of Easter eggs and see what all Trumpet has in store for us with this petite little “nostalgi-cruiser.”

Finally someone made a Royal Enfield Bobber

Finally someone made a Royal Enfield Bobber

KR Customs from Chennai used a Classic 500 as base

Royal Enfield, has been the spoilt choice for many custom bikers and builders around the globe. They are mental, and they are a gold find for its simplistic construction and the liberty for customization. You can chop it up and put them together, and they will carry a whole new charm.

With the soul of ’go anywhere, do anything’ taking up a new meaning every time it goes under the axe, folks from KR Customs in Chennai (the same place Enfields are made these days) have couped up a retro bobber out of the bullet maker’s best-selling model, the Classic 500.

High resolution images for your eyes only.

Triumph had a major field day yesterday when they unveiled two new models that will join the Bonneville family. The Speedmaster and the Bobber Black.

Based out of the Bonneville Bobber that was launched a year ago, both the models are pimped out by the factory to carry new stylings and attitude far from the original Bobber. While the Speedmaster gets to be a more laidback cruiser outlook, the Bobber Black showcases the dark side of the Bobber.

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.
