Triumph Motorcycles has revealed its 2021 Bonneville series that will reach the Indian market very soon. Among the list of products is the new Bonneville T120 range that comprises two variants – Standard and Black. Here we explain the 2021 Triumph Bonneville T120 range in detail.
The styling cues are similar to the old models, and the 2021 Bonneville T120 range continues to use a round headlight, twin-pod semi-digital instrument cluster, rounded fuel tank with rubber pads on either side, a single-piece saddle, and a twin-sided exhaust setup. The T120 Black variant is distinguished from the Standard model through a dark theme that brings a black finish to the engine covers, rear-view mirror housing, rims, and exhaust cannisters. While the styling is similar to the Euro4 models, the updated motorcycles get new tank badges, a revised layout for the instrument cluster, and an updated switchgear. The updated model range also uses lightweight aluminium wheel rims.
The 2021 Bonneville T120 has been listed in three colours – Jet Black, Cordovan Red with Silver Ice, and Cobalt Blue with Silver Ice. Whereas, the Bonneville T120 Black will be offered in two paint options – Jet Black and Matte Jet Black with Matte Graphite.
Both variants are powered by a Euro5-compliant, 1,200cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. Linked to a six-speed transmission, the updated motor produces 78.9bhp at 6,550rpm and 105Nm of peak torque at 3,500rpm. The company has extended their service interval to 10,000miles/16,000km.
The suspension setup includes telescopic front forks and twin-sided rear springs. The anchoring duties are performed by 310mm twin rotors at the front and a single 255mm disc at the back. The callipers on the 2021 model are sourced from Brembo. The electronic rider aids include two riding modes (Road and Rain), switchable traction control, ABS, and a cruise control system as standard.
The 2021 Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T120 Black, with their improved feature list and the updated engine, should carry a premium over their respective predecessors that were available with prices starting from Rs 9,97,600 onwards.
