Triumph’s Bonneville ruled the roads during
the 1960s and no modern motorcycle replicates so closely
the style and experience of those golden years than
the modern day Bonneville T100.
With its traditional wire wheels and coachlined
two-tone paintwork, the Bonneville T100 looks like
it could have been built in 1969. But look closer
and you will see a modern machine dripping with
authentic touches only Triumph can deliver.
Outwardly that 865cc parallel-twin may resemble
the classic 650cc pushrod motors of ‘the day’,
but the Bonneville T100’s double overhead camshaft
engine is bang up to date with modern fuel
injection for clean running and modern levels of performance
Neat retro touches like the ‘carburettors’
that hide the fuel injectors, dummy pushrod tubes
positioning of the ignition key pay respect to Bonneville
legend, but while bypassers will admire
the Bonneville T100, it’s the riding experience
that really delivers. Only the modern disc brakes
the game away.
Turn the key, down at the left hand side of the
headlight just like the first Bonnevilles, and enjoy
the mellow soundtrack of that traditional British
parallel-twin. Twist the throttle and that 68PS engine
delivers real world performance, with the 41mm front
forks and traditional chromed rear shocks
providing poised handling and a comfortable ride.
While the standard Bonneville and Bonneville SE
already deliver an authentic roadster experience,
T100 takes things a stage further with real 1960s
detailing. Peashooter silencers, classic two-tone
options and spoked steel wheels (with a larger 19”
front) give the T100 more presence and the sort of
kudos only a ‘Brit twin’ can deliver.
The two-tone colour options complement the traditional
Bonneville styling and have the added touch
of gold or silver coachlines, painted by hand just
as they always have been. Three regular options
are available: Phantom Black with Fusion White, Forest
Green with New England White and the new
Vintage Cream and Chocolate. The popular single colour
Jet Black option is also available and comes
with matching black-finished engine cases.
Completing the T100’s 1960s look are rubber
fork gaiters, knee pads and classically styled handlebar
mounted speedometer and rev counter, which includes
a clock and trip information.
