Perfect mechanical engineering

The Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black is black as night and rolls in with subtle technical updates. We tested how this affects driving behavior.

Anyone who has ever turned a few kilometers with the Triumph Bobber knows that the chic planer has received one or the other criticism in reality. The brakes in particular left an ambivalent impression. Dull bite, a lot of hand strength was the summary. That should get better now because the Triumph B.onneville Bobber Black turns one into two, a double disc system with a diameter of 310 millimeters is now working on the fork. Other differences? The front wheel suspension grew in diameter by six to 47 millimeters while the travel was still 90 millimeters. It comes from Showa, no longer from Kayaba, and has a cartridge insert. That promises more rigidity, cushioning and reserves.

Brakes better, fork is more sensitive

And what do the updates to the Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black do from a driving dynamics perspective? A whole lot. Let’s start with the brake. It now grabs in a more clearly defined manner, the double number of floating pistons and discs on the front has a positive effect. The fork responds sensitively and does not collapse indefinitely even when the brakes are engaged. When gliding rapidly through long arches, the Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black is stable and does not rock. Only the footrests do not get the added dynamics from fork and brake in the long run. With almost every curve they exhale a piece of their metal life.

Although the engine remained untouched, it turns out to be a potent source of good humor, just like in the normal Bobber. From 1,600 rpm, the large two-cylinder with a bassy soundscape stomps forward, regardless of which gear has just been engaged with the help of the smooth-running clutch in the transmission. Up to the maximum torque of 106 Nm at 4,000 rpm, the British twin noticeably adds more briquettes, pushing forward more than gracefully. And that although the Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black carries around ten kilos more than the normal Bobber. According to Triumph, the extra pounds are due to the wider front rim, the thicker fork and the double-disc brake system.

The glossy black version costs 13,750 euros, and the matt version of the Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black costs another 125 euros more. A surcharge of a good 1,000 euros compared to the basic model. Attractive works of art have their price.
