Triumph Motorcycles have revealed the 2021 Bonneville range that will reach the Indian market very soon. The 2021 series, which is Euro5-compliant, includes the retro-style Bonneville T100 and here we explain the motorcycle in detail.
The 2021 iteration of the retro-style model retains the design from its predecessor. The styling cues continue to feature a round headlight, round rear-view mirrors in chrome housing, twin-pod instrument cluster, rounded fuel tank with rubber pads, single-piece saddle, and twin-sided exhaust setup. Triumph Motorcycles put the motorcycle on diet, and the 2021 Bonneville T100 is four kilograms lighter than its predecessor. Other changes include a revision to the instrument cluster and black colour for the engine covers.
Triumph Motorcycles has listed the new Bonneville T100 in three colours – Jet Black, Carnival Red with Fusion White, and Lucerne Blue with Fusion White. We could see all the paint options in the Indian market.
The motorcycle is Euro5-compliant and the 900cc, parallel-twin cylinder, liquid-cooled engine now produces 64.1bhp at 7,400rpm and 80Nm of peak torque at 3,750rpm. The rev-limiter has been increased by 500rpm over the Euro4 model. For the European market, Triumph Motorcycles will offer an A2 version of the Bonneville T100 that will produce 46.94bhp at 6,750rpm. The five-speed transmission benefits from a torque-assist clutch. The company has also announced a higher service interval of 10,000miles/16,000km.
The suspension setup now uses comprise 41mm cartridge front forks and preload-adjustable twin-sided springs at the back. The braking tasks are handled by a 310mm single rotor with a two-piston Brembo calliper at the front and a 255mm disc with a two-piston Nissin calliper at the back. The safety net is provided by dual-channel ABS and a switchable traction control system. The motorcycle also gets a USB charger and an immobiliser.
The updated model will carry a price premium over its predecessor, and we could see Rs 15,000-20,000 increase in the ex-showroom tags. The old model was available from Rs 8,87,400 (ex-showroom, India) onwards.
