For the Malaysian mid-weight cruiser market, the 2023 WMoto Bobbie VII has made an appearance, priced at RM35,888. Price excludes road tax, insurance and registration with a two year or 20,000 km warranty against manufacturing defects.
With two color choices on offer – matte black and metallic black – there was also a surprise reveal of the Bobbie VII cruiser with sidecar combo at the CA Cycle Advance launch in Kajang. Currently awaiting VTA approval, no information has been officially released as to the price of the Bobbie VII sidecar, but a source said: “If approved, it will be around RM50,000 and more”.
The Bobbie VII is powered by a 693cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine. Power is rated at 74 bhp at 8,500 rpm with 643 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm.
Tipping the scales at 211kg, the Bobbie VII uses telescopic forks up front and dual preload-adjustable shocks in the rear. Braking is by single hydraulic discs front and rear with dual-channel ABS as standard.
In terms of styling, the Bobbie VII follows the traditional cruiser style with a classic 15 liter fuel tank. The seat is a two-piece affair for rider and passenger, with a brass “Bobbie” logo adorning the back of the seat lip.
LED lighting is used throughout and the dashboard is a combination of digital and analog LCD display. Other riding conveniences include a USB charging port for rider electronics.
