Named after the venue where Triumph broke numerous
land speed records in the 1950s, the Bonneville is,
for many people, the most iconic Triumph of all time.
Originally introduced in 1959, the Bonneville was
the sporting bike of the day and the bike to beat
in production-based racing right through to the 1970s.
Today’s Bonneville takes the style and spirit
of those famous bikes of the 1970s and blends in thoroughly
modern engineering to create a classic British twin
for the 21st century rider.
The air-cooled 865cc power plant is a modern design
but styled to look like a authentic parallel-twin
of the 1960s, right down to the dummy pushrods and
‘carburettors’ that hide the modern fuel
But beneath the retro looks lies a very current
and usable motorcycle that appeals to new and experienced
motorcyclists alike. Thumb the electric starter and
today’s Bonneville comes to life instantly and
with the distinctive tone that only a parallel twin
can deliver. A healthy 68PS and 68Nm of torque give
modern day Bonneville peppy performance that is at
home both in the city and on the open road.
Lightweight 17” cast alloy wheels make the
Bonneville agile and easy to ride, while the low 740mm
seat height makes the accessible to motorcyclists
of all ages and experience. Short mudguards and stylish
chrome megaphone silencers complete the 1970s look.
The higher specification Bonneville SE adds a tachometer,
chromed tank badge and brushed alloy engine cases
for added practicality and even more classic look.
Colour options reflect the traditional styling of
the Bonneville. The standard model comes with metallic
paint as standard for 2012, with Phantom Black and
Aurum Gold options, while the Bonneville SE is available
in Phantom Black or two dual colour alternatives:
Intense Orange with Phantom Black or Pacific Blue
Fusion White, the two-tone options featuring hand
A wide range of official Triumph accessories are
also available for the Bonneville range, including
alternative seats, practical screens and leather panniers.
