Following the overwhelming success of the Bonneville Bobber – the fastest selling motorcycle in Triumph’s 115-year history, we've taken the model to new heights for the 2018 model year, with the darker, meaner and stronger Bonneville Bobber Black.
With all of the Bonneville Bobber’s beautiful unique features
Now with even more attitude
And even higher specification
An unparalleled success
Launched to international acclaim in 2016, the award-winning Bonneville Bobber is loved by customers and enthusiasts worldwide. Inspired by the original post-war Bobber movement of stripped back, hard tail motorcycles tuned to the extreme for maximum performance, the Bonneville Bobber has stunning handcrafted custom style and a thrilling hot rod ride. With its 1200cc High Torque Bonneville engine with distinctive Bobber tune, it is selling out in dealerships all over the world. And because Triumph was there from the start with the most powerful and lightweight bikes around, the new Bonneville Bobber has absolute peerless authenticity.
Now taking the Bobber to new heights, Triumph’s Bobber Black delivers much more.
Authentic custom styling, now even more aggressive
With imposing poise, distinguished presence and the iconic Bobber silhouette, the Bobber Black shares the Bobber’s low, muscular and minimalist stance – purposeful, distinctive, and stripped back. Featuring all the classic hallmarks of a Bobber, the Bobber Black’s single seat and hard tail look are teamed with wide flat bars for intuitive handling, minimal bodywork and sculpted Bonneville tank, minimal fenders with centre ridge, and authentic wire spoked wheels.
The Bobber Black features a host of fully blacked out details and finishes. These include:
Carrying over all of the beautiful Bobber details, the Bobber Black boasts an authentic battery box with heritage-inspired cover and stainless steel strap, classic rear ‘drum brake’ inspired hub, rear mudguard loop, side-mounted ignition barrel, bar end mirrors and a premium branded locking fuel cap. Plus an exquisitely sculpted top yoke, carb-styled twin throttle bodies and gloss black bullet indicators.
Arriving in two alluring colour options, the Bobber Black is available in either a classic gloss Jet Black or a stylish and contemporary Matt Jet Black.
Elegant engineering innovation, now even higher specification
Raising the bar in terms of specification, the Bonneville Bobber Black delivers characterful and class-defining riding dynamics.
Triumph’s highest specification brakes in the Bonneville line up with ABS as standard; the Bobber Black has category leading 310mm twin discs on the front with twin Brembo two-piston calipers and a single rear disc setup with single piston caliper. The suspension also sees an upgrade from the Bobber spec with chunky 47mm Showa cartridge front forks, offering 90mm front wheel travel for improved feel and feedback. The new “fat” 16-inch front wheel, still with classic wire spokes, black rims, and the specially-developed Avon Cobra tyres, gives the Bobber Black its meaner and more muscular stance.
As well as the considerable specification upgrades, the Bobber Black retains the elegant engineering innovations now synonymous with the Bobber – like the beautiful and distinctive floating aluminium seat pan with cantilever support, the adjustable riding position, the elegant monoshock RSU with linkage, the distinctive ‘swing cage’ for that hard-tail look and the clean line hidden technology packaging.
Accessible for any size of rider, the Bobber Black has a low seat height of just 688mm providing excellent ergonomics and a confidence-inspiring low centre of gravity.
Category defining capability, now with even more technology
The front end of the Bobber Black is transformed with the new 5” full-LED headlight with unique LED daytime running light* pattern (DRL) and charming Triumph maker’s mark triangle branding integrated within the headlight cluster. Longer distance cruising is also easier on the Bobber Black, thanks to cruise control as standard, easily accessible as a single button elegantly moulded into the left-hand switch cube.
Complementing these upgrades are a suite of rider-focused technologies carried over from the Bobber and sensitively incorporated to ensure clean-line packaging – like the Road and Rain riding modes, both delivering full power, and the switchable traction control for maximum safety and rider control. On top of that is the torque assist clutch which reduces pulling effort at the lever to help prevent rider fatigue, the durable and power efficient all-LED lighting (rear light, indicators and number plate light), and a state of the art immobiliser with transponder incorporated into the premium Triumph badged key for maximum security.
Stylishly minimal and angle adjustable, the Bobber Black’s beautiful single clock has a machined dial face and multi-function display controlled by easily reachable fingertip controls.
As with all Triumphs in the Modern Classics range, the new Bonneville Bobber Black is liquid-cooled, reducing emissions and offering a high first major service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000 Km). For added piece of mind, it also features the latest immobiliser with the transponder fitted into the premium Triumph badged key.
All-LED Lighting with Full LED Headlight with DRL*
All new, distinctive and elegant, full LED 5 inch multi-function headlight with beautiful Triumph maker’s mark triangle branding. Main and dipped beam, and front position light, plus Triumph’s signature style LED daytime running light.
Compact and elegant, with a distinctive light pattern, the LED rear light, LED indicators and LED number plate light are power efficient and durable.
Single Button Cruise Control
Easy to use, single button function cruise control with one press for on, one press to set the speed, and one press to cancel. Easily accessible button mounted into the left hand switch cube.
For a crisper, more precise and more accurate throttle response,
Linked to the ride-by-wire system, there are Road and Rain riding modes, selectable via the new switch gear, for maximum, control and safety in different riding conditions, both delivering full power.
The contemporary safety standard, with minimal visual impact, the ABS is responsive yet unobtrusive.
Switchable Traction Control
Contemporary switchable traction control, maximising rider safety and control.
Torque Assist Clutch
Reducing clutch lever effort, the Torque Assist Clutch improves long distance rideability and reduces rider fatigue.
State-of-the-art immobiliser system as standard, with a transponder incorporated into the Triumph branded key.
Thrilling hot rod ride and sound
Featuring the critically acclaimed 1200cc High Torque parallel twin engine with charismatic 270° firing interval and a dedicated Bobber tune which delivers category-leading torque and power low down the rev range:
The Bobber Black also has a new black painted twin skin straight line exhaust with twin ‘slash cut’ sawn-off black peashooter silencers and a hidden cat box. A dual chamber air box with twin filter design helps to deliver that rich and raw exhaust note and hot rod feel.
120+ custom accessories
As with the Bonneville Bobber, the Bobber Black has been designed with customisation in mind, with over 120 accessories for custom styling, additional detailing, enhanced comfort and more performance. These include different handlebar options like the mini ape hangers, alternative mirrors, compact LED indicators**, short mudguards, luggage, statement seats, and heated grips.
Branded accessories include the Fox adjustable rear suspension unit, and the elegant machined aluminium Vance & Hines silencers with adjustable end caps

Representative Example, provided for illustration purposes only.
In PCP finance examples, the final payment is optional and is the minimum guaranteed value of the bike (providing the bike isn't damaged or beyond reasonable wear and tear for the age and mileage).
Your options at the end of a PCP agreement are to either hand the bike back to the finance company, use the bike as a part exchange against a new one or pay the final payment and take ownership of the bike.
In all cases of finance, the motorcycle belongs to the finance house until the final payment is made at the end of the agreement.
PCP agreements work best when you have a low deposit, want to have low manageable monthly payments and intend to part exchange or sell the bike at the end of the agreement. If you have a significant desposit, can afford higher monthly payments or plan to keep the bike beyond the term of the agreement then a finance proposal based on a regular monthly payment without a deferred final payment may provide the lowest total cost. We can talk you through all of the options we can offer.
