2018 triumph bonneville speedmaster bobber Facelift

Perhaps the simplest way to think about the new Speedmaster is that it’s a more practical and versatile version of the Triumph Bonneville Bobber, with two-up seating and a larger fuel tank. The changes go further than that,
the Speedmaster is built around the twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 1200cc 270-degree-crank, Bonneville T120 engine. The Speedmaster has the same midrange-enhancing intake and exhaust tuning as the Bobber, giving a 10 percent bump in torque at 4,500 rpm compared to the T120. The Speedmaster shares the hard-tail-look chassis and swingarm with the Bobber, giving both a retro appeal.

Form finally meets function with Harley-Davidson’s 2018 Softail line-up. And the $14,599 FXBB Street Bob is one of its finest examples. It’s also one of the most affordable, too. Mini-ape bars, spoked wheels and a tidy, stripped down, passenger-free stance are what makes it worthy of space in your garage.

Designed for spirited riding, the Street Bob certainly delivers with its peppy 107 cubic-inch V-Twin. Introduced last year, the Milwaukee-Eight engine offers a bigger, smoother stream of muscle, while besting the legendary sound and running character that has made The Motor Company well, The Motor Company.

Near perfect throttle response ensure immediate access to the engine’s claimed 110 lb-ft peak torque that comes online early in the rev range (3000 rpm). The six-speed gearbox meshes between each of its gears with the mechanical precision of a finely calibrated timepiece. Equally as satisfying is the sound the tranny makes as you row up through the gearbox.

Clutch pull is lighter than we remember, yet remains well-weighted. This isn’t a girl’s bike, but it doesn’t require vice-grip like left hand strength either. Response is improved too through the lever throw.

Although chosen primarily for style, the handlebar bend and mid-controls function more aptly then you’d expect. The riding position is a tad more old school feeling— in the vein of the ‘70s inspired Low Rider, but not quite to that extreme. A nifty LCD display is discreetly positioned inside the top bar clamp keeping tabs on the 3.5-gallon fuel tank in addition to speedometer functions. Sure it’s a little small, but you can’t argue with how well-integrated it is, plus it’s legible even in direct sunlight. It’s a nice touch and beats having to fiddle with something aftermarket.

Paired with an all-new chassis boasting vastly improved ground clearance makes for a Harley that actually likes to turn! There’s 28.5 degrees of available lean on either side. Hustling this 653-pound motorcycle (17 pounds lighter than before) isn’t much of a hustle at all and its extra low 26.8-inch seat height ensures that it’s a bike that’s ready to play for height challenged folks, too.

The deep seat pan supports your bottom well and is well-suited to urban riding. Then there’s well-appointed details like the primo seat cover, paint, and hard parts finish that really make this Street Bob stand out—even compared to other new American and Japanese offerings— impressive.

The suspension offers the best of both worlds feeling supportive during a more spirited canyon carving pace, yet still has enough suppleness to mask road imperfections and bumps on surface streets. Dyna purists will probably gripe that the Street Bob now only features one shock instead of two, but proof is in the pudding with the new gas-charged setup offering much improved ride quality plus sport appeal.

Triumph’s Bobber is their fastest selling new model ever, and charts in the top 10 for new bike sales in the UK. It’s been a rampant and unprecedented success, and this new version answers the question of ‘what next’ for the super-focussed single-seater. The new Black version is far more than a paintjob, and should perhaps be viewed as the Bobber’s hotter cousin – following hot on the heels of the announcement of the all-new Bonneville Speedmaster.

Apart from the near-total blacking out of every shiny component, and the addition of a beautifully simplistic cruise control function, the really significant changes are all in front of the headstock.
Bonneville Bobber Black highlights

New 47mm cartridge fork
16-inch front wheel
Twin-disc front-end
Brembo calipers
LED lighting all round

The Bobber’s delicate-looking front-end has been on a course of steroids. Gone are the 41mm KYB fork legs, replaced with a much beefier set of 47mm Showa cartridge forks. Although they still lack any adjustability, they should offer more performance from the same travel.

Hanging off the fat new fork is a smaller 16-inch rim (the Bobber wears a 19), boasting an equally chubby 130/90 Avon Cobra for a more authentic bobber aesthetic. Even more overtly nodding towards spirited riding is the upgrade in braking performance to match. The Black gets a twin 310mm disc arrangement, and more powerful and consistent Brembo two-piston axial sliding calipers (versus the Bobbers single disc and solo twin-piston Nissin).

The Black also gets a lighting upgrade, with the Bobber’s optional DRL-enabled LED headlamp arriving as standard equipment, along with a full complement of LED indicators and numberplate lamp.

Its blackness extends to the exhaust silencers, headers and upper finned casting, foot controls, brake and clutch levers, handlebars, seat pan, engine covers, cam cover and sprocket cover, headlight rim and wheel hubs and rims.

Also arriving on the Black is the firm’s new cruise control system – a refreshingly simple three-touch single button to activate, set, and disable.

Everything else is standard Bobber fare, sharing the chassis, swinging-cage fake hardtail styling, and that stonking T120 high-torque parallel-twin.

No word on pricing yet, but we expect the higher spec to command a 10-15% premium over the Bobber’s £10,600. Expect it in dealers in time for new March 1 registrations.

2018 New Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black Edition

The new Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black is all about macho style and darkness, thanks to a host of fully blacked out details and finishes. You can count on black exhaust, brake pedal and footrests, gear lever and linkage, brake and clutch levers, black bars and risers, seat pan, engine covers, headlight rim, and even wheel hubs.

Believe it or not, but the Bobber Black can be had in two color setups, namely classic gloss Jet Black or the stylish, more modern, Matte Jet Black.

Most of the other elements are carried over, but the Bobber Black do comes with some improvements. The most important one being a new chunky 47mm Showa cartridge front fork, offering 90 mm of front wheel travel for improved feel and feedback. Speaking of wheels, the front one is a new fat 16-inch one with classic wire spokes.

Power comes from the 1200cc 77 horsepower and 106 Nm High Torque engine from before, and everything is kept in check by standard ABS along with a category-leading twin Brembo two-piston calipers setup on the front a single disc with a single piston in the back.

A single button easy-to-use cruise control is offered as standard along with ride-by-wire throttle, two riding modes, switchable traction control, torque assist clutch and an immobilizer system with the transponder being incorporated in the Triumph branded key.

Another cool new feature is the headlight, which now uses full LED technology along with Triumph’s signature LD daytime running light. Do keep in mind that the latter’s availability is governed by local legislation, so you may not get it.

Last but not least, the 2018 Bonneville Bobber Black can be further customized through one of the over 120 Triumph accessories for added style, comfort enhancement or more performance.
