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 ethe dayf,
but the Bonneville T100fs double overhead camshaft engine is bang up to date with modern fuel
injection for clean running and modern levels of performance and reliability.

Neat retro touches like the ecarburettorsf that hide the fuel injectors, dummy pushrod tubes and
positioning of the ignition key pay respect to Bonneville legend, but while bypassers will admire
the Bonneville T100, itfs the riding experience that really delivers. Only the modern disc brakes give
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, the
T100 takes things a stage further with real 1960s detailing. Peashooter silencers, classic two-tone colour options and spoked steel wheels (with a larger 19h front) give the T100 more presence and the sort of kudos only a eBrit twinf 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fs 1960s look are rubber fork gaiters, knee pads and classically styled handlebar
mounted speedometer and rev counter, which includes a clock and trip information.
