It also has low lines and a low stance and still has a strong and aggressive stance. The new bike also has a low single seat pan, with a stripped back design, as well as a flat and wide handlebar. To complete the ‘hardtail’ look, a concealed rear mono shock is present. The beauty of the details is astounding. An authentic battery box together with a stainless steel strap and a classic rear ‘drum brake’-inspired hub also portrays the new Bonneville Bobber as one of the most powerful and authentic superbikes around.
Features abound on the new Bonneville Bobber as well.

This will make the Bonneville Bobber much more customizable compared to its competitors. Speaking of competition, the new Bonneville Bobber will be pitted against the likes of the Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom and the Roadster.
