The new Bonneville Bobber

The new Bonneville Bobber has absolutely peerless authenticity. A genuine Bonneville and factory custom Bobber that’s both iconic and authentic. Stripped 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, wide rear wheel and that all important hard tail look.

An all-new chassis, suspension and frame deliver a supremely confident, dynamic and comfortable ride. All electronic components are hidden from view so as not to compromise the bike’s clean lines, and both the seat and clock position can be adjusted to suit the rider for class-leading comfort and control.
At the heart of the Bobber is a category-leading, high-torque (HT) Bonneville 1200cc engine with a dedicated Bobber tune for even more torque and power low down and a beautiful brushed stainless steel exhaust with twin skin ‘slash cut’ peashooter silencers.

It’s a genuine Bonneville, truly iconic and authentic.
It’s a genuine Bobber with unparalleled heritage, attitude and desirability. Most of all, it’s a genuine factory custom with beautifully styled minimalism.

The Birth of the Bobber
• The ‘Bobber’ was born in the 1940s – with the boom of post war American bikers taking the cheapest and most powerful bikes they could get and stripping them bare to get them to go as fast as they could – building hot rods for the road and to race.
• With a totally unique and instantly recognisable style, stripped of all unnecessary parts - a hard tail, single seat, flat and low bars to cut down drag and shortened ‘bobbed’ fender, hacked off to leave just enough to protect the rider from the elements. This giving a bobber its iconic name.
• With the motor and exhaust heavily tuned to squeeze out every ounce of performance – bobbers were built with one thought in mind - to go from ‘dead stop to flat out’ as fast as possible.
