The updated Bonneville now gets a black grab rail as a standard fitment and is available in Phantom Black, Lunar Silver or Crystal White/Sapphire Blue colour schemes.
The T100 and T100 Black models of the Boneville too get new colour schemes. The former gets a new Crystal White and Aurum Gold paint scheme that has been inspired by the 1964 Bonneville with stylised colour split continuing across the front and rear mudguards. The latter gets Jet Black colour scheme and has a gripping sound because of its revised silencer.
The Café Racer inspired 2014 Thruxton now gets an adjustable rear suspension and the silencer has been revised for better sound. The motorcycle gets chrome chain guard along with colour matched fly screen. A rear seat cowl is now available as standard equipment. The 2014 Thruxton is available in Phantom Black and Brooklands Green.
The Scrambler’s oil cooler lines, handlebars, wheel rims, hubs and the rear master cylinder reservoir cover have been completely blacked out. The anodised bash plate and new seat design adds a good finishing touch to this machine. The 2014 Scrambler is available in two brand new colours – Matt Pacific Blue and Lunar Silver/Diablo Red combination.
Of all the Modern Classic motorcycles, Triumph Motorcycles India will be launching the Bonneville in November. There is a high chance of company getting the 2014 version of the iconic motorcycle in India but expect the prices to go up by at least 15 per cent due to rupee depreciation.
