Triumph revamps the 2010 Bonneville lineup for the model’s 50th anniversary and we dare saying from the very beginning that it is their best one yet. The facts backing this affirmation up consist in both the presence of a fuel injection system for the legendary powerplant as well as that of three different models apart from the T100 one.

Although the British motorcycle manufacturer was keen on retaining the original 1960s look of the Bonneville, the standard and SE models are both modern interpretations of their old timer’s sibling and, of course, they feature the same engine.

Sometimes it isn’t recommended to go ahead and buy the first motorcycle that looks perfect to fulfill your riding needs even though your every single cell tells you to do so simply because there can always be an even more adequate alternative. That’s why we have the competition heading in all of our reviews, but in this case that’s not going to be the solution.

Now, we’ve just wrote about the latest Triumph Speedmaster and that custom bike couldn’t have left you a bad impression, but people may want to go for the classic bike, and that’s where the 2010 Triumph America intervenes. So if you haven’t already made a deposit for the Speedmaster , the America can blink an eye at you as it is more comfortable without losing any of the British magic look.

After the Bonneville engine’s fuel injection upgrade, virtually all classic/custom motorcycles in the Triumph lineup have been revised in that concern. This implied the Speedmaster too, but what’s really the strong point of this motorcycle is attitude, so the only thing that the new model year brings is more grunt to back those bad boy looks up.

Café racing passionate Sivert Raask from Sweden has recently presented his latest work, the Triumph Thunderbird 1600 Café Racer, which he seriously modified using parts from his own rear-sets and accessories shop, Raask. The bike gets a Ducati 900 tank, home-made seat as well as new exhausts and bikini fairing.

You can imagine where the rearsets and new speedometer have come from, but this actually looks like a great achievement considering that the Triumph Thunderbird isn’t a naked bike, but a veritable cruiser, meaning a long way from being turned into a café racer. Yet this one is and a very nice one too.

Raask bought the motorcycle new in August and transformed it over the winter. This is by far the first café racer he built and we reckon it won’t be the last either. Just read what the man has to say about his passion for café racers:

“Café racers have always been my favourite bikes. Back in 1967 I bought a boat ticket from Gothenburg to London, bought a used Norton Atlas, then brought it home and rebuilt it as a café racer.I did the same with a Commando.”

“More recently I’ve built café racer versions of the latest Bonneville and Rocket III so when I first saw the new Thunderbird I immediately thought it would be perfect to make into a café racer.”

And he did, right before Christmas, but we hear it wasn’t test ridden yet, so we should find out more about it after the Triumph Thunderbird Café Racer starts doing what it knows best.

Triumph is aware of the fact that it just isn’t enough to be part of the world’s motorcycle history so they reinvent themselves creating and then carrying on manufacturing unique motorcycles such as the Speed Triple. If some of those models end up determining the creation of other ones, which is definitely the case here (just check out the Street Triple ), it means there’s great demand in that sector and it is also very likely for that first bike to stick around for more action. The 2010 Triumph Speed Triple does so and with not many changes to set it apart from the previous model year. So let’s see what Triumph is betting it will sell their bike.

Triumph’s 2010 model range has two new Special Edition models, the Daytona 675 SE and Thunderbird SE.

The British manufacturer’s high spec middleweight supersport bike, the Daytona 675 SE stands out both from the standard model and from the previous SE model thanks to new flank graphics, white striped wheel, race-inspired brake and clutch levers and a host of carbon parts from Triumph’s accessories catalogue. This bike will hit dealerships on March 1st and have a price tag of $12,700.

In what the 2010 Triumph Thunderbird SE is concerned, it comes with standard ABS and gets the all-new Carnival Red color. Various genuine Triumph accessories are available for this model too. Expect to find the 2010 Thunderbird SE in dealerships from early March with an MSRP of $18,900.

Apart from the above mentioned, both bikes are technically unchanged from their standard siblings.

Triumph built their reputation with a unique style and innovative ways of obtaining the most performance and benefits from their bikes and the 2010 Street Triple and Street Triple R models reflect their urban sports category best. On one hand, they have the base Street Triple model, which is technically unchanged for 2010 and on the other hand there is the Street Triple R. This last was introduced last year for riders who simply cannot comply with the idea of riding a standard model and life on board does indeed get a little better on it.

Triumph makes sure their most versatile model, the Tiger remains a strong player on the market and the presence of a Special Edition model in their lineup is just what the doctor recommends for riders in search of an adventure-sport model. The bike is based on the Tiger Tiger ABS, but distinguishes thanks to a Matt Graphite and Matt Black color scheme as well as thanks to a pair of color-matched sidebags, just like the 2010 Sprint ST gets.

A first glance at the standard 2010 Triumph Tiger is enough to make you think the bike is totally new, but what actually sets it apart from the previous model year are the attractive new color schemes and the touring upgrades that the Brits simply had to have for their wild model.

While the color schemes as well as the accessories are for you to decide, what they don’t offer the possibility to decide for is the 1050cc three-cylinder engine producing 111 bhp at 9,400 rpm and 72 ft.lbs at 6250 rpm, as that would actually be the main reason why people buy the bike. Also, the Triumph Tiger features sports suspensions and rubber as well as Nissin brakes, making it an adequate sport-touring bike rather than the dual-purpose one that first made an entry back in the early 1990s.

British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph has just released a video showing their 2010 models in action just so that they get our juice flowing ahead of the new motorcycle riding season. Most of their 2010 bikes are being produced with little modifications and only get new colors as Triumph, like most other bike manufacturers, likes to play it safe until the global economy starts spinning its wheels more rapidly.

It’s long been said that bikers evolve with age, so while the Daytona 675 is the dream of any sports motorcycle passionate in his early twenties, the Triumph Sprint ST is a family guy’s idea of a sports tourer. If that’s the case, I’m getting married as soon as possible.

The bike is extremely reliable and versatile while also retaining the British style and finesse with performance to back it up.
