Packing More Power Than Its Predecessor

The Triumph Bonneville line has underwent numerous redesigns over the years, but always kept that classic British flavor and dated panache that is both aesthetically pleasing and rooted in its own past. The Bonneville Street Twin joined Triumph’s new-in-2016 Modern Classics group that includes the Bonneville T120 family and the Thruxton R. Today, I want to take a look at the Street Twin and see how well Trumpet did in upholding the reputation of the venerable Bonnie line.

Triumph celebrates the Spirit of ’59 with these limited edition Bonnevilles

Unique paint scheme on the T120 and T100. Custom bikes in collaboration with D*Face

Triumph has been the oldest British motorcycle manufacturer that has a rich 115 years of heritage and has been sweating it out on the arena and treating us with exceptionally new modern classics over and over again. Their Bonneville range is selling as fast as they can make them and now they are coming up with a limited run of their Bonneville T120 and T100 models.

Celebrating Triumph’s “Spirit of ’59” campaign, the brand has unfurled 59 examples of both the Bonneville models with fresh colors that take you back to the T120 Bonneville 650 bike of 1959, the era that announced the beginning of a cultural explosion that lives on in every Triumph Modern Classic.

2017 - 2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber

A Retro-Appeal All Its Own

Ever since I got my first glimpse of the Triumph Bonneville Bobber at the 2016 Milan show I was eager to get to know it a little better. This was my absolute favorite bike at the show, which is saying something considering everything else that was happening. Now that all the metrics are known, I gotta’ say that my enthusiasm has been justified. A 1200 cc plant pushes the classic-looking frame that, much like Harley-Davidson’s Softail, comes built to look like an old hard-tail. The result is a modern ride with very deep roots that can be traced back to the Speed Twin 5T of the late ’30s. There are plenty of other little historical touches here and there, and though this is no replica piece, it can serve as a sort of rolling museum. Today, I’m going to delve into this collection of Easter eggs and see what all Trumpet has in store for us with this petite little “nostalgi-cruiser.”

2018 Triumph Bonneville Bobber Black

Good Looks, Exciting Performance, And An Undeniable Pedigree

Triumph expands its record-setting Bonneville Bobber range this year with the new-for-2018 Bonneville Bobber Black. The “Black” builds on that success with more of the same stuff that made it a hit in the first place and some custom touches that give it more of a home-spun look right off the showroom floor. Already a thoroughly modern ride, the factory brushed it up with more tech even as it embraced even more retro-tastic features for an interesting duality of development, if you will. The Bonnie Twin mill delivers its 77 horsepower with the same characteristic ’tude we expect. What else does Trumpet have going on over there? Join me on my journey through this British wonderland and find out.

2016 - 2018 Triumph Bonneville T120 / T120 Black

Old-School Styling Outside, Modern Tech Inside

Triumph carries the Bonneville name into a new generation with the Bonneville T120 and T120 “Black.” Such a classic name deserves to be treated with dignity with a certain amount of retro appeal, and the factory took extraordinary steps to keep this ride as old school as possible. The designers didn’t go too far though; a modern mill cranks out 80 ponies and over 77 pounds of grunt under a ride-by-wire throttle and traction control. A modern ride through and through, but with a very definite, and dated, curb appeal. Today I’m going to take a look at the pair to see what goodies Trumpet has in store for us, and what compromises were made in the process.

Bonneville Was Never Better Than This

Triumph started the Bonneville legacy all the way back in 1959, and it is a name that the factory is still taking to the bank today. The newly-repowered “Bonnie” T-100 and T-100 Black boast a 900 cc mill set in what is more or less a T-120 chassis. At 59 horsepower, the T-100 plant makes for a newbie-friendly riding experience while the weight savings around the bike imparts a nimble nature that you don’t really feel with the big-brother T-120. Classic looks abound on the base model, while the “Black” takes a turn down memory lane to the heyday of garage custom standards with a large dose of blackout treatment for a more sinister look. So, not only do we have a bit of a spread on design, but we also have a balanced machine that can introduce folks to the joys of riding while remaining fun enough to keep experienced riders interested. If that sounds good to you, read on to see what else the T-100 family has to offer.

Everything You’d Expect From A Contemporary Cafe’ Racer

Triumph expanded its Bonneville Street Twin family a bit to include the new-in-2017 Street Cup. The SC brings the cafe’-tastic vibe of the Thruxton to a smaller engine bracket with a 900 cc mill, thus opening up the club-racing world to entry-level riders and offering experienced riders the option of downsizing for convenience without giving up too much in the way of fun. Sporty and quick, this ride seems to be everything one would expect from a contemporary cafe’ racer.

2018 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster

It’s A New Bonneville Generation

Triumph’s Bonneville Bobber was a calculated risk that paid off big-time. Springboarding off that success, the factory doubled down with a blackout/custom version of the popular Bobber, and it added to the lineup with the all-new Bonneville Speedmaster. The Speedmaster still serves as the custom-cruiser of the Bonnevilles, but it drops the old swingarm frame in favor of the faux-hardtail Bobber bones. Riding modes, ABS, traction control, cruise control and two-up seating join the 1,200 cc Bonnie engine to make the Speedmaster a much more capable machine for longer trips and interstate work. Yeah, let’s face it shall we? The Bobber is a great little barhopper, but little else, and this new setup expands the lineup into more practical territory.

Triumph’s special ’Dapper Bonnie DGR100’ turns out to be a really special gesture.

A custom Triumph T100 Bonneville for the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR)

After seeing a smart sharply-dressed chap astride a vintage classic motorcycle, Australian Mark Hawwa etched a grand plan to banish the negative take on biker image and started up a charity event in 2012 called as ’Movember’. it raises awareness and funds for prostate cancer research and suicide prevention and was attended by 2,500 dapper ladies and gentlemen.

For this 2017 chapter, British legendary motorcycle manufacturer, Triumph, was the official DGR motorcycle partner. They created a one-off custom T100 Bonneville christened as the Triumph ‘Dapper Bonnie DGR100’ and was ridden across London’s finest establishments by Phil Green, an A&E nurse who was diagnosed with prostate cancer seven years ago.

As a surprise gesture, Triumph asked Phil to take the special Bonnie back home with him since it was his to keep.

Motorcycles that take you to the black&white era.

Festooned with modern technology and engine, these bikes bring back time from the ’60s.

Timeless designs that take you back to the pre-’60s era , heightened feeling of riding free-spirited machines and the sense of freedom. This is what a modern day classic motorcycle offers without that knuckle bending fixes and ghastly scenes of oil dripping everywhere.

Drawing inspiration from the brand’s rich heritage, manufacturers are spinning motorcycles that exuberate the classic appeal and character that goes on to showcase their point of arrival into the world of two wheels.

Recalling the past glories, these neo-classic motorcycles have still managed to retain the charm and posterity of minimalistic elegance along with providing modern day mechanicals and the bits. They run on efficient high output engines that are both reliable and powerful and are equipped with state of the art suspension and brake setups that will bring the bike to a halt not far from their point of application unlike the yesteryears.

Today though, we’ll not get talking about power, torque, springs or brakes. Rather, the aura these bikes bring about with their interpretations of what the ’60s were all about and long before that. Their old silhouettes, round headlamps, spokes wheels and all that chrome.

Here are our top five retro picks available on the showroom floors:

Triumph Celebrates Record-Breaking Bonneville Bobber Launch

Bonnie Bobber Blasts Previous Sales Record

The design team that dreamed up the Bobber must surely be slapping each other on the ass right about now. They managed to cook up one of the sweetest rides on the roads today, and if you don’t agree then obviously all your taste is in your mouth. Sales numbers don’t lie, and Triumph sold more Bonneville Bobbers in the first 30 days after initial release than any other model it has made, ever. That’s no mean feat given the history of the company, but I can’t say I’m surprised, I’ve said for years that Harley-Davidson should make a similar model based on the Sportster line, and I absolutely adore the Bobber, in fact, Triumph just wrapped up a North American event cleverly named the Bonneville Bobber Brutal Beauty Tour.

Triumph Motorcycles Issues Recall On 2016-17 Bonneville T120 / T120 Black

Triumph Motorcycles Issues Recall On 2016-17 Bonneville T120 / T120 Black

Cold hands are a drag, no doubt about it, and for many, accessory heated handgrips are the only fix. Bless them, I say, for being willing to brave the frozen tundra when most bikes are stashed for the winter, and I begrudge them not for seeking whatever comfort they can while riding in harsh climes. Unfortunately for up to 1,390 North American Triumph Bonneville T120 and T120 Black owners, it seems they may have got a 2-for-1 deal they weren’t counting on. Apparently, the heated handgrips have a tendency to expand a bit when activated which can cause the throttle grip to bind and stick in the open position. Needless to say, a stuck-open throttle is bad m’kay, and the possibilities of getting into an accident goes up exponentially at that point.

First off, the bike builders from Hinkley added the cafe’-tastic “Street Cup” to its Street series that runs the 900 cc Bonneville twin in a bike that hits all the highest points of cafe’ racer design.

Triumph Bonneville T100 / T100 Black / T214

Triumph has long been one of the most recognized motorcycle brands in the world, and though fans can name a whole host of worthy models, the Bonneville family stands out as one of the most beloved.

The Bonnie DNA evolved from the TR6 Trophy and has persisted through three generations, and a few different factory owners, since the original came out in 1959. Nobody could ever accuse Triumph of neglecting its roots, indeed it would be closer to the truth to say they nurture and embrace them, an assertion I am comfortable making considering the looks of the new family of Bonnies.

Join me while I take a look at this particular incarnation in the form of the 2015-16 Bonnevillle T100, T100 “Black” and T214 Special Edition built as a nod to the record-setting run at the Salt Flats back in 1956.

Triumph To Auction Off Scrambler Used In Jurassic World

Triumph To Auction Off Scrambler Used In Jurassic World

Triumph Motorcycles will be auctioning a piece of cinematic memorabilia when the iconic Scrambler ridden by Chris Pratt in Jurassic World goes under the hammer on July 23, 2015.

Anybody who watched one of the highest grossing movies of all time will recognize the Bonneville-based Scrambler from one the film’s most iconic scenes, or as I’d like to describe it, the only time in history that a Triumph, or any other motorcycle for that matter, rode in concert alongside a pack of raptors.

The auction will take place on eBay and the proceeds from the sale will go directly to The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, the British bike brand’s self-appointed fundraising partner. Whoever wins the auction will not only take ownership of a motorcycle that appeared in one of the most lucrative films in history, but he - or she - will also have the distinction of owning just one of three Scramblers that were customized specifically for the film. That’s a pretty good distinction to have, especially when one of its owners is Pratt himself while the other is displayed at Triumph’s headquarters in the UK.

Needless to say, this will be one of the few times that a really unique Triumph motorcycle will be up for grabs to the public. I don’t know how much it’s going to sell for, but I don know that it could be a hot ticket when the auction goes live on eBay at 7 pm GMT (3 pm ET) on Thursday, July 23, 2015. The auction will remain live for the next days, ending on Sunday, August 2, 2015.

Prepare to strategize on your bids, ladies and gentlemen. Chances are, you’re going to compete with a lot of people for this particular piece of Triumph and Jurassic World history.

Handbuilt Motorcycle Show To Showcase Two Celebrity Custom Bikes

The Austin leg of the 2015 MotoGP season is shaping up to be a huge event this weekend. We already know that the race will be held at the Circuit of the Americas. We also know that some of the world’s best motorcycle riders will be competing in the race. Now comes word that the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show, also scheduled this weekend as part of the off track festivities surrounding the race, will host the unveiling of two custom Triumph motorcycles built specifically for Hollywood A-lister Ryan Reynolds and TV personality Jessi Combs.

California-based Kott Motorcycles will be responsible for showcasing the custom Triumph Thruxton it built for Reynolds, who actually had a hand in designing the bike. According to Kott Motorcycles’ owner Dustin Kott, the man who will be playing Deadpool in the Marvel movie of the same name was largely responsible for infusing a “mid-1960s” look on the Thruxton, complete with a cinnamon red paint finish with a matching pewter striping on the cafe racer.

Meanwhile, Triumph of Westchester in New York will also showcase a custom Bonneville at the show. Instead of actually using a brand new Bonneville, the shop decided to use Combs’ very own 2012 Bonneville for the build. It’s the same bike that Combs was riding when she figured into an accident last October 2014. Instead of having insurance repair the machine, Combs decided to just donate the claim reimbursement to South Dakota-based non-profit organization Helping with Horsepower. Turns out, Triumph and Castrol caught wind of this and reached out to Combs to help fix up her tattered Bonneville. It took a few months to get the work done, but with the help of Carpenter Racing and a few other aftermarket shops, Triumph is now ready to showcase Combs’ 2012 Bonneville at the show this weekend.

2015 Triumph Bonneville Spirit Special Edition

2015 Triumph Bonneville Spirit Special Edition

The Triumph Bonneville is one of those rare bikes that are easy to spot even from a distance. The bike’s streamlined, no frills look is an immediate eye-catcher and well, let’s be honest, anybody who rides the Bonneville will immediately look more attractive to the human eye. That’s the kind of cache this bike generates, often doing so without even trying.

That said, Triumph still wanted to give fans of the Bonneville more reason to enjoy the model, thanks to the launch of three special edition models that celebrate a specific part of the company’s status in motorcycle lore. One such special edition model, called the Spirit Special Edition, was created to pay homage to the Bonneville’s stature as an aftermarket favorite.

Triumph created the Spirit Special Edition to “celebrate the spirit of customization,” and in keeping up with that spirit, the bike maker dressed up the special edition Bonneville with a bevy of custom upgrades that will make you think that it just came out of a custom shop.

2015 Triumph Bonneville Newchurch Special Edition

2015 Triumph Bonneville Newchurch Special Edition

Triumph acknowledges the passion of its fans with the release of the 2015 Bonneville Newchurch Special Edition — the same passion which leads thousands of them to Neukirchen, Austria, for what is touted as the world’s largest annual Triumph party. The Newchurch comes with a healthy dose of classic 1970’s Bonnie features that will invoke a strong nostalgia in fans of that era, and personally, it does for me too. Granted, most of the Triumphs that I have dealt with have been choppers, but that’s a story for another time. The parallel-twin engine looks like it could be 40 years old at a glance, but there is plenty of modern engineering treasure hidden within, and the 360 degree firing order undoubtedly gives the Newchurch that classic “twingle” sound (read: giant lawnmower) that so many associate with having a Brit in the pack.

2015 Triumph Bonneville T100

2015 Triumph Bonneville T100

The old school style of the classic motorcycles will always be fashionable and Triumph knows this better than many other bike manufacturers. While most of its models are more or less modern interpretations of the classic design used in the golden era of roadsters, the new Triumph Bonneville T100 looks almost unchanged compared to its siblings, at least for an untrained eye.

Naturally, its retro style is mixed with plenty of contemporary technologies which help it deliver modern day performances as far as ride and handling is concerned.

Talking about technologies, the motorcycle is propelled by an efficient 865 cc, air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin engine which features Multipoint Sequential Electronic Fuel Injection With SAI. The engine is mated on a five speed gearbox with wet-multiplate clutch.

The Triumph Bonneville T100 is offered with a base price of €9,621.

2014 Triumph Bonneville T100 Black

Meet the Triumph Bonneville T100 Black, the evil twin of the standard T100 model. The Black version shares the same technical parts with its sibling, but it comes with a unique style. The black rimmed wheels, the black-cased engine and the black bars and mirrors are all working together to give the Triumph Bonneville T100 Black a tasty custom appearance.

The bike is built around the company’s iconic 865cc, parallel-twin cylinder engine. The engine shares the same layout with the old units that made the Bonnevilles famous, but it comes with new technologies that help it deliver superior performances that match the requirements of today’s riders.

In terms of power, the unit cranks out 68 PS at 7500 rpm and 68 Nm of torque at 5800 rpm. This power is kept under control by 5 speed transmission.

2012 Triumph Bonneville

2012 Triumph Bonneville

In case you didn’t know, the Triumph Bonneville, considered the most iconic Triumph motorcycle of all time, was named after the Bonneville Salt Flats, the site where Triumph broke numerous land speed records in the 1950s. As a tribute to their achievements, Triumph introduced the Bonneville back in 1959 and since then, the model has been considered one of the most famous and most popular bikes on the planet.

Today, the Bonneville is alive and well and it combines the style and spirit of those famous bikes of the 1970s with modern engineering to create a classic British twin for the 21st century rider.

The 2012 Bonneville comes with a low 29.1" seat height that makes it accessible to motorcyclists of all ages and experience. Short fenders and stylish chrome megaphone exhausts are also part of the old-school look, as are the lightweight 17" cast alloy wheels that make the bike agile and easy to ride. For the Bonneville SE model, riders will get an added tachometer, chromed tank badge, and brushed alloy engine cases for added practicality and an even more classic look. As far as color options are concerned, the standard model features metallic paint with Phantom Black and Aurum Gold options. The Bonneville SE is available in Phantom Black or two dual-color alternatives: Intense Orange with Phantom Black or Pacific Blue with Fusion White.

Beneath the retro looks lies a very current and usable motorcycle that features an 865cc air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin, 360º firing interval engine that produces a healthy 67 brake horsepower and 50 lb/ft of torque, giving the modern-day Bonneville a peppy performance that is at home both in the city and on the open road.

2012 Triumph Bonneville T100

2012 Triumph Bonneville T100

There once was a time when the Triumph Bonneville ruled the roads. Though those days have long passed, the tradition continues on with the newest member of the family, the 2012 Bonneville T100.

The design of the Bonneville T100 is as traditional and contemporary as it gets. With its wire wheels and traditionally coachlined two-tone paintwork, the Bonneville T100 looks like a bike that was transported straight from the 60’s with real detailing straight from the pipeline. The peashooter exhausts, the classic two-tone color options, and spoked steel wheels are all retro-styled. In particular are the two-tone color options, which have been touched of gold or silver coachlines and painted by hand just as they always have been. For the 2012 model, Triumph is offering three regular options: Cranberry Red with New England White and Graphite and Metallic Phantom Black are the two-tone options, while the popular single-color Jet Black option is also available and comes with matching black-finished engine cases.

Powering the Trumph Bonneville T100 is an 865cc parallel-twin engine that resembles the classic 650cc pushrod motors of its heyday, except that this modern-day maverick ride comes with a double overhead camshaft engine that’s fully up to date with modern fuel injection for clean running and modern levels of performance and reliability. Twist the throttle and that 67 brake horsepower engine delivers real world performance, with the 41mm front forks and traditional chromed rear shocks providing poised handling and a comfortable ride.

2007 Triumph Bonneville by CRD

2007 Triumph Bonneville by CRD

When it comes about updating bikes, Triumph’s models are maybe the best ones to be tuned. One of the main reasons you have seen tons of them lately, and reason why we bring you another one today: a 2007 Triumph Bonneville built by the Spanish shop Café Racer Dreams.

Their package is called "Night Track" and includes a A K&N air filter, Keihin carbs, a handmade two-into-one exhaust system terminated with a Supertrapp muffler. The package continues with a mini headlight that sits in front of Renthal Ultra Low bars fitted with enduro-style switchgear. The footpegs are custom, and the shocks from Hagon.

You may think that the bike’s look might feature a minimalist style, but if you add that very cool matte black paint then you definitely the coolest Bonneville ever. Too bad the tuner decided not to improve the bike’s performance numbers in any way, but we still like their work very much.

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.

The bike is powered by a 865cc parallel twin-cylinder engine that delivers 66 HP at 7500rpm, with peak torque of 69Nm delivered at 5800rpm.

The 2011 T100 features peashooter silencers, classic two-tone color options and spoked steel wheels.

Triumph Bonneville café racer by LSL

Although it looks like a whole new British bike, this is actually LSL’s Triumph Bonneville ‘Tridays’ Limited edition café racer that the German accessories and customizing specialists have built for the three-day Triumph motorcycle reunion held in Neukirchen, Austria this year from 25-27th of June.

Starting from a 2010 Bonneville, the LSL team has painted the alloy wheels in black and brought in a Remus exhaust, YSS shocks, new instrumentation, ace bars, racer-style seat and polished alloy mudguards, just to name a few of the bike’s distinctive features.

LSL will only build twenty such units and plans on selling them for $16,445 (€12,950). The price also includes a package trip to the Tridays festival. Visit the Tridays website for more information.

Triumph Bonneville by Deus

Triumph Bonneville by Deus

There’s little what people reproach to the standard Triumph Bonneville, but at seeing what the guys at Deus can do with it, suddenly there’s a whole lot needing to be improved. If it is to follow the Deus recipe, the Bonnie would have to be 2 inches lower and 2.5 inches longer than the original. Still, the modified rear frame section makes for a 4 inches shorter tail section.

Triumph Bonneville by Deus

This gives ‘Dave’s Bonny’ an aggressive stance and sure makes it a greater performer at high speeds, but there’s a whole list of features that make this café racer special. While you can check those out in the list found below, we’ll just name some of the parts that make this project stand out. To begin with, the tricked out Bonnie features a Kawasaki W650 tank with the fuel injection unit tucked inside and a Deus fiberglass seat unit. At the front, Dave gets 41mm clip-ons from Australian specialist Tingate and Triumph Trophy 955 handbar controls. We also like the Deus headlight brackets.

In the end, the bike looks nice and clean with all the wiring hidden but it is the custom paint job by Dutchy that finishes it even nicer. Also note the black powdercoated engine covers and 2-pack gloss black fuel injection bodies.

Triumph Bonneville by Pettinari

Triumph Bonneville by Pettinari

The Triumph Bonneville was the subject of infinite customization projects during the past decades and it seems that there’s always found a new way of turning GB’s iconic motorcycle into a better ride. Madame Bonnie represents such a project, but it comes from Italy, where Triumph specialists Pettinari have tricked it out.

No bike can be called a Bonnie unless the parallel-twin engine is present, so the Milan-based tuners retained the stock engine, but fitted it with 39mm Keihin CR racing carbs, a high performance air filter and a free-flow exhaust. These parts allow the motor to spin easier and sound much more aggressive.

Still, the main focus was on handling, so Madame Bonnie loses its stock suspension for Showa forks and Öhlins rear shocks. Also at the rear, a boxed aluminum swingarm was added. In the end, braking performance was significantly increased by adding Street Triple twin 310 mm front discs and Nissin calipers.

Surely, this custom retains its classy look, but technically it is a step further than anything going off the production line in Hinckley, England.

The Italian way to Triumph

The Italian way to Triumph

Italian customizing specialists Gallimoto have recently presented three new Triumph Bonneville specials that they’ve put together. Called Bonneville Six Days, Goldenboy and Bullitt, the English bikes with an Italian feel are pretty much the same, but oh so very different.

The Bonneville Six Days is based on the current Bonnie and stand out thanks to a khaki green paint job, black wire wheels, biturbo twin shocks and new indicators. The bike pays tribute to Steve McQueen who competed in the International Six Days Trial in 1964 on a Triumph and costs approximately $16.5K.

The Goldenboy started as a stock Bonneville SE, but now features black finished mag wheels, low fitted handlebars, an aluminum front mudguard and seat unit and megaton exhausts, but also Dunlop sportsmax-tires, sintered pads and adjustable twin shocks. Finished in red and gold, this special one also costs around $16.5K.

The Bullit gets mag wheels and Biturbo twin shocks as well as an alloy fuel cap and control levers and pressed aluminum chainguard, sprocket cover and front and rear mudguards. It is finished in silver and with a cost of approximately $16.8K it is the most expensive of them all although the difference is inconsiderable when you’re paying that much for a Bonneville.

Although these bikes don’t seem to have undergone radical customizing processes, they’re whole different stories than their standard siblings and we’re glad to see that café racer influences still catch on to the European motorcyclist today.

Bonneville Street Tracker by Mule Motorcycles

Bonneville Street Tracker by Mule Motorcycles

You take a look at this bike and already have troubles recognizing the brand and we’re sure that mentioning how it is called – Sun of Mule that is – won’t help much. But here’s the story. This is actually a 2006 Triumph Bonneville which Richard Pollock of Mule Motorcycles bought from eBay in order to satisfy a customer’s request of a special bike for little money.

Although the bike isn’t highly modified as the accent was put on styling and ride quality, while the only engine upgrade consists in a British Customs exhaust, it is hard not to spot this as a unique build. Click past the break to see what Richard Pollock, owner of Mule Motorcycles and builder of the Sun of Mule has to say about his latest custom after the jump.

2010 Triumph Bonneville

2010 Triumph Bonneville

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.

Triumph Bonneville Bobber Concept

Triumph Bonneville Bobber Concept

The Triumph Bonneville needs no presentation whatsoever as it is surely the symbol of the British motorcycle industry, but we can definitely change a few words about this Triumph Bonneville bobber concept that we recently came across while searching for aftermarket parts to fit on a stock 2009 model. Belonging to Dan Anderson, an Australian industrial designer, the Bonnie concept attracted our attention for representing a complete change of style without too much work. To begin with, the frame suffers no modifications whatsoever and apart from the fact that both exhaust pipes run on the same side, you won’t spot any changes in the engine department either.

It is all about the visual impact and this is enhanced by the bobbed rear fender and truncated seat pan, not to mention the dropped bars and bobber rubber. We’re struggling to spot more differences, so help us out if you have a trained eye when it comes to Bonnies. Still, a bikini fairing would have been nice as well, but those who want to go the whole way will surely be inspired by this.

Triumph Bonneville Bobber can't see any better days

Triumph Bonneville Bobber can’t see any better days

Before we say anything about this unique Triumph Bonneville, we have to mention that no, this isn’t Brad Pitt’s latest motorcycle, although it looks like something that the respective celebrity would ride with pride.

The Bonneville bobber started live as a stock British piece of engineering until ending up in the hands of Detroit-based ’bobber Dave,’ who certainly made the thing wear his fingerprint. To begin with, Dave cut several inches of the rear sub frame and brought in short travel 11” Harley-Davidson shocks to lower the thing even more (I believe he doesn’t plan to pass over many speed bumps with this gorgeous thing).

But the first thing that strikes you isn’t the small ground clearance. The custom seat, which has a vinyl cover made from full gloss metal-flake bar stool material, is this Bonnie’s piece of resistance. A side mounted number plate, ace bars and vintage red grips complete the package. I don’t know about the chrome on the mechanical parts, but I guess it lights the bike up a little bit.

Triumph Bonneville by TAG Heuer

Triumph Bonneville by TAG Heuer

Triumph and TAG Heuer have joined forces to create a unique motorcycle named “Bonneville Heuer”. The bike is inspired by Steve McQueen and the Porsche 917 K that he raced in the movie “Le Mans” while wearing the famous Gulf Oil Blue and Orange colors.

Enthusiasts waiting for us to mention the limited number of units scheduled for production and the very special price will most likely be disappointed to hear that there will be a single such motorcycle built and it will be used for promotional purposes.

This year Triumph celebrates 50 years from when the first Bonneville was produced and in order to mark the half of century of existence on roads around the world, the British manufacturer has created two brand new limited edition models, one designed by Belfast, and the other by Ewan McGregor.

The first is black painted and features gold pinstriping and Triumph announced to sell a few models till the end of this year.

The second one is copper-plated and the fact that Ewan McGregor designed it makes it one off and will be auctioned for raising funds for UNICEF.

2006 Triumph Bonneville T100

Adding subtle touches to the unclutttered Bonneville form, the T100 roadster wears a little extra to mark its connection with the classic speedster of the sixties. And a little extra spice, too. The T100’s new, full-blooded, 865cc, air-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder engine gives a throaty performance echoed by the mellow backbeat from its twin pea-shooter exhaust pipes. Deep-chromed engine covers add lustre while the tachometer, flanking the speedometer, marks out the revolutions.

2006 Triumph Bonneville

A modern day roadster with a tangible connection to the classic style of times gone by, the Bonneville mixes timeless British engineering with modern technology and thinking. The result is captivating. As befits such an honest machine, at the core of the Bonneville is a sonorous and instantly recognisable 790cc, air-cooled, twin-cylinder engine. Laden with character - and with a distinct kick in its power delivery - the Bonnie engine entertains as much as it transports.
