Royal Enfield Bobber Launch
The bike is not a production ready model. So we won’t ever see it on the roads. The bike will heavily influence design, paint work, specs and other stuff from the future. The bike is a concept vehicle and will not be launched. A Royal Enfield Bobber will eventually come and will retain a lot design language we saw on the bike showed at 2018 EICMA.
Royal Enfield Bobber Design
The Royal Enfield Bobber is a low slung bike. This shouts bobber in every way. The bike is seen here with a large single seat, a large tank which is a break from the teardrop design normally seen on RE bikes. The daytime running LEDs look great with the projector headlamps. It also receives a twin exhaust muffler, twin disc brakes on the front wheel, flat handlebar and a long wheelbase. Suspension includes a telescopic front fork and a monoshock at the rear. Dual channel ABS is standard. The large twin cylinder engine is part of the bikes appeal and looks very cool.
Royal Enfield Bobber Engine
The engine for the bike is an 834cc, liquid cooled, fuel injected, V Twin engine developed with help from Polaris Industries (Indian Motorcycles). The engine is capable of 90bnp power and around 100Nm torque.
