Brutally beautiful, the new Bonneville Bobber is a genuine factory custom. It perfectly encapsulates the minimalistic styling principles, muscular stance and purposeful engineering attitude of a genuine Bobber. Stripping the Bonneville T120 back to its purest essence it delivers all the hallmarks of a real bobber. With clean lines and low stance, single seat, wide flat bars, minimal bodywork and headlight, sculpted tank, wire spoked wheels, with wide rear wheel and that all important hard tail look.
An all-new chassis, suspension and frame deliver a supremely confident, dynamic and comfortable category defining ride. With an innovative elegantly engineered adjustable seat and clock position to suit the rider and riding style. The stunning ‘swing cage’ hard tail set-up and hidden mono-shock suspension make the bobber as dynamic and thrilling to ride as it is to look at. All electronic components are hidden from view so as not to compromise its clean lines. Rider focused technology and the signature Bonnie straight-line ‘hidden cat box’ exhaust run, are all neatly incorporated without interfering with the Bobber’s stunning looks.
The new Bonneville Bobber has been completely designed with customisation in mind. With over 150 accessories to choose from such as Vance & Hines silencers, 'ape-hanger' high bars, headlight bezel, bar end peep mirrors, clip on handlebars, shortened front mudguard and LED indicators that add even more muscle and style. You can upgrade the comfort level too with practical accessories such as heated grips, cruise control kit, swing arm bag and a ribbed or quilted seat. The Bonneville Bobber really is your canvas for individual styling.
The category-leading, high-torque Bonneville 1200cc engine has a dedicated Bobber tune, delivering even more torque and power low down than the Bonneville T120. To maximise the riding character the Bobber has a new twin airbox and twin filter set-up, unique intake and exhaust system and new output shaft. The latest electronic ride-by-wire system has also been incorporated for enhanced throttle control, with 2 riding modes and liquid cooling sensitively incorporated. Add to this the slash-cut stainless steel twin swan-off silencers and the Bonneville Bobber delivers a true hot rod sound enveloping the rider.
Linked to the ride-by-wire system the Bobber has two selectable riding modes - ‘road’ and ‘rain’ for greater control and safety. The two dedicated throttle maps can be selected via the handlebar mounted switch gear.
The modern liquid cooling system provides more clean fuel efficient riding, better fuel economy and a high first major service interval of 10,000 miles.
The LED rear light, indicators and number plate light have each been sensitively incorporated in keeping with the Bobber’s minimalistic look and provide a distinctive light pattern and greater power efficiency for long term durability.
The new Bobber incorporates a switchable traction control system that optimises the delivery of torque when traction is compromised to maximise rider safety and control.
The new Bobber has a stylish feature-packed single clock with a beautiful machined dial face, neatly housing a digital menu system, accessed by a handlebar mounted scroll button. Key features include: gear position indicator, odometer, rev counter, two trip settings, service indicator, range to empty, fuel level, average and current MPG, clock plus access to turn off traction control features.
The latest generation ride-by-wire system brings a new level of control to the Bonneville Bobber, with minimal visual impact.
