Triumph is introducing an exclusive limited edition of its legendary Bonneville model to celebrate 50 years of the iconic twin-cylinder machine.

Based on the standard Bonneville T100 model, the Triumph Bonneville T100 50th Anniversary pays homage to its 1959 namesake with a unique paint scheme and exclusive extras.

Each Bonneville 50th Anniversary will come in a special two-tone Meriden Blue/Exotic Orange combination, complemented with hand painted gold pinstripes. The livery echoes the ‘Tangerine Dream’ design that proved such a talking point on the 1959 originals.

Only 650 Bonneville T100 50th Anniversary edition bikes will be produced, echoing the engine capacity of the original Bonneville, and each will be individually numbered and identified with a brass plate on the handlebar clamp. In addition, each bike comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by John Bloor, owner of Triumph Motorcycles Ltd.

Other features of the Bonneville 50th Anniversary include a unique seat with white piping and a gold Triumph logo, special Bonneville 50th Anniversary logos on the side panels and a chromed cam cover.
Triumph is also introducing a comprehensive line of special edition Bonneville 50th Anniversary clothing, consisting of a top quality casual jacket (which features a reproduction of the very first Bonneville advertisements printed in the lining), a zipthru fleece and two T-shirts. A range of accessories, including a limited edition print, will also be available to celebrate the Bonneville anniversary.

The Bonneville legend was born when Triumph named its sporting new model to commemorate breaking the motorcycle speed record at the famous Bonneville Salt Flats. Since creating a stir at the 1958 Earl’s Court show in London, the Bonneville has become a modern classic. The original Bonneville was the fastest bike around and synonymous with the rebellion and independence of its heyday, made famous as the motorcycle of choice by Hollywood legends. Although the latest Bonneville shares the name and timeless looks of the original, it features a modern chassis and fuel injected 865cc twin-cylinder engine.

The 21st century Bonneville has lost none of its star appeal, counting screen heroes George Clooney,
Nicolas Cage and Ewan McGregor among its list of celebrity owners.
