The Triumph Bonneville is around for over 50 years now and during its long lifespan it was constantly upgraded. Though, despite its numerous modifications the bike kept its old-school style and continues to be considered a classic icon.
The modern wire-wheeled Bonneville T100 features a unique design which draws inspiration from the original Bonneville that ruled the streets in the 1960s. The retro style of the 2013 Bonneville T100 meets a series of modern technologies and a strong 856 cc parallel twin engine that delivers 67 bhp @ 7500rpm and 68Nm @ 5800rpm.
Other features offered by the Triumph Bonneville T100 are the chromed engine covers, a black instrument surround with tacho, spoked wheels and fork gaiters.
On the technical side of things, the Bonneville T100 is packed with modern disc brakes, refined suspensions and a steel cradle frame. The bike is available in black or traditional two-tone colour schemes with hand finished coachlines.

The most famous name in motorcycling is as famous today as it was 50 years ago.
Built in the spirit of the all-conquering British twins that ruled the roads in the 1960s, the modern day Bonnevilles uniquely combine up-to-date design and manufacturing methods with traditional styling and attitude.
Whether you prefer the late Seventies look of the agile and accessible Bonneville and Bonneville SE, or the pure 1960s class of the wire-wheeled T100, your Bonneville will be powered by a thoroughly modern and reliable 865cc fuel-injected parallel-twin unit that oozes character and delivers enough go to match the show.
Few bikes attract as much attention as the Bonneville, which is probably why it attracts a wide range of riders that encompasses those who rode the original Meriden Bonnevilles, baby boomers who lusted after them and young riders who appreciate the timeless style and accessibility of a traditional motorcycle.
Bonneville still delivers a unique style and appeal unmatched by any other motorcycle. Enviable glances and engaging chat from passer-bys come as standard.
T100. Classic Sixties styling.
Bang up to date engineering. Retro meets modern. Double-barrelled, fuel-injected responsiveness from the 865cc parallel twin. Smooth pulling, double-barrelled fun. A mellow backbeat from the twin peashooter exhausts. Chrome engine covers. Black instrument surround with tacho. Triumph logo on the seat. Two-tone paint. Spoked wheels. Fork gaiters. You got the look. Motorcycling the way it’s meant to be. Ride it with a smile.
Classic Sixties style wouldn’t be complete without spoked wheels or peashooter exhausts that hark back to the very first Bonnevilles of 1959.
Modern disc brakes, suspension and steel cradle frame blend seamlessly into the package and ensure that the T100 is tough enough for today’s road conditions. Traditional two-tone colour schemes with hand finished coachlines, or timeless Jet Black alternatives on the black edition, fit the character of the T100 and complete the period look.
