The photo does good job of presenting the bike - looks great.
Can the Bobber be adapted for two-up?
How skinny is your pillion?
My bagger is like a bobber with functional fenders.
I don't know what to think about the Bobber. For me motorcycling has always largely been a functional thing, often being my only form of personal transportation. The Bobber seems like it can do around town duty only.
Pretty sure you would just want to go with the Speedmaster.
That's like saying a dual sport is only good for trail use. Throw a tank bag and the available side bag racks and you can go anywhere you'd travel on another road going bike. You're just not doing it with a passenger.
Ya see I didn't know there were side bag racks available.
Obviously I haven't looked at the bike aside from random posts here - it's only a curiosity to me. But maybe it's growing on me?
I do have the luxury of having a great 'touring' alternative, so for me the bobber would be a further luxury. Plus my pillion's days of shared wind therapy were recently declared acabado!
If that is what you want, its called the Speedmaster
Might want to add the accessory mid controls and flat bar to get it a bit closer to the bobber, but it seems the basic bikes are pretty similar.
Why isn’t that a model already. I love the bike but hate the wire wheels and front discs.
Imagine that as a pro stock drag bike! It would be so cool!
Instead of the discs you propose? Is it the look of the discs that bothers you?
A friend who was on his way to buy a Speed Twin () bought a Speedmaster instead. It was due to the good price, and I think the change from sporty (he also rides a Sprint ST) was appealing. I asked him about the forward controls (no appeal for me) and he said he quickly adjusted to them.
I've been wanting a V2 for awhile, why not get one with some Ohlins and a fancy paint job -- Ducati Panigale V2 Bayliss edition
it’s that flat big disc look. I like floating discs. If it had mags you could mount em on the spokes.
My Bonneville featured the same discs stock (well one of them anyways) and I was able to replace it with a semi-floating EBC rotor that looks much better in my opinion.
King of the Baggers !!! Probably needs a little more ground clearence, though the COG is nice and low in this configuration....
On the Bonnie Maggie, the EBC floating disk is a direct replacement. The billet 6 piston PreTech caliper also.
The SE. The Bonnie I almost bought. Sweet!
