2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

The 2017 Bonneville Bobber marked an important step forward for Triumph.

Created to compete with similar models from Harley-Davidson and Indian, the Bobber had great styling, featured a strong, 1,200cc engine, and just so happened to sell better than any other brand-new Triumph.

With this track record, it wasn't surprising to see that Triumph decided to revamp the Bobber for 2018, packaging a new 47mm fork, new twin-disc front brakes, a new 16-inch front wheel, and tons of blacked-out hardware under the stealthy "black" moniker.

We rode the Bonneville Bobber Black in Marbella, Spain, and were impressed with the ride for a few reasons. The addition of the second front rotor and caliper drastically improved braking force over the previous design, the wider front tire and thicker fork aided an already intimidating stance, and the exhaust note was truly music to our ears.
