The Bonneville T120 is the replacement for Triumph’s long-running Bonneville T100 motorcycle. Propelled by a larger 1100cc engine and built on a new liquid-cooled platform, the Bonneville T120 is positioned between the Thruxton and the company’s new entry-level model - the Street Twin.

The new Bonneville T120 pays homage to the original Bonneville racers of the late 1960s. Despite the major upgrade in the chassis and powertrain department, Triumph hasn’t messed with the styling of the motorcycle and it is still easily identifiable as a Bonneville. The classic appeal of the motorcycle has been further enhanced thanks to the liberal use of chrome and retro detailing in the headlamp, engine and in the rest of the bodywork.
The Bonneville T120 is powered by a 1200cc liquid-cooled ‘high torque’ engine, which delivers 105Nm of torque through a six-speed transmission. Triumph claims that this engine delivers a staggering 54 per cent more torque in the lower rev range. When it comes to electronics and safety equipment, the Bonneville comes armed with ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire throttle and a slip-assist clutch.
Triumph has also tinkered with the suspension to improve the bike’s everyday usability. It gets conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin shocks in the rear. The Bonneville T120 rides on 18-inch and 17-inch chromed spoke wheels for the front and rear respectively.
The Triumph Bonneville T120 is available in four retro paint schemes - jet black, cinder red, pure white and cranberry red aluminium. Though it doesn’t have any direct rivals in India, it will compete with the likes of Harley-Davidson Forty Eight, Ducati Scrambler and the Kawasaki Z800.
