Triumph have released a custom version of their massively popular 1200cc T120 Bonneville – the Bobber. Stripping the Bonneville T120 back to basics, it delivers all the hallmarks of a real bobber:  clean lines and low stance, single seat, wide flat bars, minimal bodywork and headlight, sculpted tank, wire spoked wheels, with wide rear wheel and that all important hard tail look. The frame, chassis and suspension is all-new too – a custom bike without the custom headache!

Bonneville Bobber

The authentic battery box with stainless steel strap, drum brake-styled rear hub and rear fender loop add small touches of style that make up a whole Bobber.

The ignition barrel, located on the front right-hand panel, adds a touch of authenticity. Bar end mirrors and all-new risers complete the look – but there are over 150 accessories that can be added to make your Bobber truly yours.

Look out for the gorgeous Triumph Bonneville Bobber at Fowlers in 2017!




Three of the best from Yamaha!

Once again Yamaha has scooped up awards in three classes in the prestigious annual MCN awards announced today. The MT-10, new this May, has been massively popular and was announced the winner of the MCN Naked Unlimited class for 2016. The MT-07, a middleweight all-round naked machine that has proved popular and versatile this year, has also won the title for MCN Naked Middleweight. Having been voted MCN Bike of the Year in 2014 following its launch, we wonder what 2017 has in store for this bike. Finally, the All-Rounder title has been scooped by the Tracer 900 for the second year running.

Yamaha MCN Awards


MCN said about the award winning machines:


MT-10: “Yamaha have created something very special with the MT-10, and it’s a worthy winner.”
MT-07: “Fun, funky and fabulous value, the MT-07 is a naked hero.”
Tracer 900: “Yamaha has created a comfortable, fun and characterful bike for almost every situation.”

Fowlers Motorcycles – Best in the South West

Fowlers MCN Award

For the second year running, Fowlers Motorcycles has been named ‘Best Multi-Franchise Dealer in South West England’ by Motor Cycle News.

Picked out by the judges as one of “the UK’s eight best bike dealers”, Fowlers is Bristol’s longest-established motorcycle retailer; founded in 1926 by Alice and Frank Fowler, the business is still owned and run by the same family.

The dealership is conveniently located close to Temple Meads mainline railway station on the A38 inner ring road and is one of the most spectacular showroom spaces in Europe for motorcycles, clothing, accessories and spare parts.

Customers are offered an unrivalled line-up of new motorcycles and scooters from Aprilia, Gilera, Honda, KTM, Moto Guzzi, Piaggio, Suzuki, Triumph, Vespa and Yamaha, with an off-road centre and hundreds of pre-owned machines. There’s even a free-to-join loyalty card rewards scheme.

Supported by more than a dozen skilled, factory-trained technicians in the Service Department, which benefits from almost instant access to genuine parts and accessories supplied by Fowlers’ award-winning spares wholesaling operation, a full after-sales service is taken care of.

Recent changes include a complete re-design of the 7,500 square feet clothing and accessories department, which gives customers an unparalleled choice of products, together with a re-fit of the famous Harry’s Café, providing a relaxing environment for people to enjoy a drink or some freshly prepared food. There’s also the recent addition of a fantastic new mezzanine level, which houses the dedicated off-road department.

“It’s a huge honour to receive this award from Britain’s best-selling motorcycle magazine for the second year in a row,” says Joint Managing Director, Stephanie Fowler. “All credit to our hard-working staff, who ensure that our customers are given great choice and a professional service, while being treated as friends and fellow riders.”

Yamaha have finally revealed the expected new YZF-R6 today, and isn’t it a beauty? With a redesigned front fairing, featuring slim, aggressive LED headlights and a sculpted tail reminiscent of the R1, Yamaha have finally updated the R6’s look in line with the rest of their Supersports line-up.

2017 Yamaha YZF-R6

Available in Race Blu and Tech Black, the bike’s electronics and engine have also received an upgrade, with adjustable 6-position traction control, YCC-T, YCC-I, ABS and Drive Mode all as standard. The chassis now has a lighter magnesium rear subframe, and the front forks are 43mm instead of the 41mm of the 2016 model. The 599cc parallel-4 engine seems to be the same as the 2016 R6, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

This upgrade certainly looks the part – will we see a similar upgrade to the YZF-R125 in future? Only time will tell!




Piaggio has announced a range of Genuine Accessories for the new Beverly Sport EU4, many of which will be especially welcome for owners planning to ride through the autumn and winter seasons.

With combined ABS and traction control for safety in even the most challenging weather conditions, the Beverley Sport Touring makes the ideal run-around, whatever the weather.

Helping to keep the worst of the wind and weather off the rider is the tall Windscreen Kit. Made from shock- and scratch-resistant 4 mm methacrylate, it shields the upper body and hands and is fully tested and approved by Piaggio.

The Outdoor Cover keeps the rain, frost, road spray and prying eyes off the Beverly 350cc scooter. Tailored to fit the scooter snugly, it comes in black with reflective strips for added visibility, openings for accessories, a transparent number plate window and chain ring.

Ideal for stashing waterproofs, spare gloves and other useful seasonal accessories, the handy Tunnel Bag is made from nylon with waterproof zips. It will hold up to 16-litres, has extra side pockets and is designed so that it will not interfere with the riding position. It detaches quickly and easily for use off the scooter.

To view the complete range of genuine accessories for the Beverly Sport Touring visit our showrooms or see them online HERE.

The 2017 Fireblade was eagerly-awaited this year, and Honda have definitely not disappointed. Not just an upgrade to the existing models, we get three new CBR1000RR machines – a base model, SP and SP2.

New CBR1000RR SP

The CBR1000 SP brings together Honda’s Fireblade knowledge, honed since the first model in 1992, with their racing know-how from the RC213V-S, to bring us an outstanding new machine. Honda’s new 5-axis Inertial Measurement Unit measures everything the Fireblade is doing and assists electronically – along with the Suspension Control Unit which receives roll rate, yaw rate and lean angle information. All this information feeds back into the FI-ECU to create the optimal ride. Rear Lift Control and Cornering ABS make each curve more manageable at speed, especially when paired with new, lighter alloys and Bridgestone rubber.

Like the RC213V-S, the 2017 Fireblade features a new full-colour TFT liquid crystal dash, where riders can select from riding modes, lap timers or a mechanic setup display.

CBR1000RR SP2 Homologation Special


This road-legal homologation special uses the SP as a base, then adds a boost of power and styling to kick the Fireblade up a notch. Five hundred bikes will be made for race use, with race and sport kits from HRC available to further boost performance. Cosmetically, gold and carbon pattern inserts mingle with the classic tricolour design, while lighter gold Marchesini alloys reduce weight. The engine itself benefits from various upgrades, all derived from the RC213V-S.


New CB1100RS

cb1100 RS

The retro-inspired CB1100RS has received an upgrade, with more of a cafe racer flavour than its sibling the EX. A lower, more sporty riding position along with new alloys, upgraded suspension and front forks all aid this refresh of the CB1100 line. Mechanically, the engine benefits from a lighter, shorter exhaust and breathing system, as well as a shorter rake and wheelbase and a slipper clutch.




The standard CB1100EX has benefited from a few of the upgrades to the RS – the improved air intakes and slipper clutch developments to the engine, as well as a more relaxed riding position.
