The Bullit motorcycle manufacturer stood out by producing a range of machinery retro 125 cm3 before moving to the next step last spring with the Bluroc 250 powered by a V-Twin 249 cm3.
The brand is tackling a new segment this summer with the V-Bob 250 . Despite this small displacement, the V-Bob presents itself as an accessible Power Cruiser , at least in style with its bulky 20-liter tank, its generous dimensions and its driving position with the feet forward with a rear handlebars. We must admit that the little two and a half has charm.
The equipment is not to be outdone with a round LED front headlight, indicators and mirrors mounted on the handlebars, a double matte black exhaust on the right side or even a USB socket on the computer to recharge your smartphone.
Based on the technical part of the Bluroc, the V-Bob therefore inherits the same quarter-liter V-twin engine which here provides maximum power of 18.5 hp and torque of 17 Nm from 5,500 rpm.
On the cycle side, the wheelbase of 1,530 mm remains the same, but the bike is lower with a ground clearance of 160 mm and more accessible with its two-part saddle at 715 mm. The braking system is combined and provided with ABS while the suspension is entrusted to the front to an inverted fork and to the rear to two shock absorbers adjustable in preload. The 16-inch rims are fitted with Timsun road tires.
