Motorcycle manufacturer Royal Enfield has taken the wraps off its concept bike, the Bobber 838 at the ongoing EICMA event in Milan, Italy. The company had started teasing the Bobber much before the EICMA 2018.
The 838cc Royal Enfield Bobber is a concept that is fitted with the most powerful engine Enfield has ever made.
As the rumours have suggested, the Bobber will be powered by a V-Twin engine and has emerged as the first vehicle that has been manufactured in RE’s recent collaboration with Polaris industries.
The design is on very similar grounds to the 1938 Royal Enfield 1140 which was also powered by a V-Twin engine.
The bike is a typical Bobber style machine with a low riding stance and a long wheelbase. The Royal Enfield Bobber showcased at EICMA 2018 is a single-seater bike with full LED headlamps with DRLs and alloy wheels. The LED lamps are something the purists might find as taking away from the whole Royal Enfield authenticity.
The engine is reported to be a 838cc V-Twin liquid cooled engine that is good for 90 PS of max power and 100 Nm of peak torque. This is the third bike by Royal Enfield to come with a twin-cylinder after the recently introduced Interceptor 650 and the new Continental GT.
From what the images suggest, the bike looks quite massive, much bigger than anything on Royal Enfield’s portfolio currently. It will reportedly weigh more than 200 kg.
The new Royal Enfield Bobber concept has a meaty twin exhaust, front dual disc brakes and a flat handlebar for a low stance.
The telescopic front fork has a rather unique touch to it as it’s not a regular upside-down suspension setup you see on most bikes. The outer shell of the front suspension runs all the way up to the headlamp.
The Bobber concept also sported a monoshock suspension setup in the rear with dual channel ABS as a standard offering. The instrument cluster still holds a retro look to it while the green paint does make it look rad.
This concept is not yet production ready. However, the company is looking towards a similar design language for its future models.
