With the Bonneville, Triumph say they took one of the most famous names in motorcycling and gave it some extra 60s style. It was first introduced in 1959 and since then the motorcycle has gone through many mechanical and cosmetic changes, but one thing that hasn’t changed is its traditional design and classic nature.
The understated design language oozes class and keeps true to its roots with the basic design. Keeping its classic design in mind, the company has decided to give it an analogue speedometer with odometer, clock and trip information.
The Bonneville is powered by an 865cc air-cooled fuel-injected parallel twin engine which churns out 66bhp at 7500rpm and 68Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the motorcycle has a kerb weight of 225kg. It gets the light cast 17-inch wheels with 110/70 and 130/80 tyres at the front and rear respectively.
Talking about its braking power, it gets single 310mm disc in the front and single 255mm disc in the rear along with Nissin 22-piston floating caliper. The Bonneville gets Kayaba 41mm telescopic forks in the front and chromed twin shocks with adjustable preload in the rear. It gets a fuel tank capacity of 16 litres.
The Triumph Bonneville is available in three colours - Lunar Silver, Phantom Black and Saphire Blue/Crystal White.
