2009 Triumph Bonneville T100

2009 Triumph Bonneville T10009 Triumph Bonneville T100

Riders looking for a Sixties-style Bonneville are catered for with the wire-wheeled T100 model, which has been updated with some minor detail changes for 2009.

Adding subtle touches to the uncluttered Bonneville form, the T100 wears a little extra to mark its connection with the classic ‘deluxe’ speedster of the Sixties. The T100’s full-blooded and responsive 865cc parallel twin-cylinder engine delivers throaty acceleration, amplified by the mellow backbeat from its twin peashooter exhaust pipes. Maximum power of 68PS (67bhp) arrives at 7,500rpm, with peak torque of 69Nm (51ft.lbf) delivered at 5,800rpm.

The chassis – a tubular steel frame, 41mm telescopic forks and chromed twin rear shocks – offers secure road-holding, effortless steering and easy-going manners, just as you would expect of a bike derived from Bonneville heritage. Likewise the powerful twin-piston calipers operating on front and rear discs ensure excellent stopping ability.

Completing the T100 are a tachometer, rubber knee grips and chromed engine covers. Accessories available for the T100 include classic chromed extras such as a front mudguard, side stand and cam cover, as well as practical additions like the fly screen and tank bag. The retro classic gets new handlebar clamps, restyled footrests, black clock surrounds and a white Triumph logo on the seat, while fork gaiters, previously available as an optional extra, come as standard. The comprehensive range of accessories can also be fitted to the T100 for an even more individual look.

The elegant two-tone paint options for 2009 include Jet Black with a Fusion White infill, Claret with an Aluminium Silver infill and Forest Green with a New England White infill, all of which come with a gold coach line. The T100’s coach lines are all skilfully hand applied, with each craftsman initialling the underside of a completed tank.
