A legend was born the day the Triumph Bonneville was named to commemorate a Triumph breaking the motorcycle speed record on the famous Bonneville Salt Flats.

Synonymous with the rebellion and independence of its heyday, today’s Bonneville is powered by a fuel injected, air cooled, 865cc parallel twin that still delivers that unique Triumph sound and feeling.

New for 2009, the Bonneville gets an authentic 70’s look that’s sure to appeal to riders of all ages and experience.

New 17” cast wheels sharpen the handling whilst the short front and rear mudguards, white Triumph branding on the lower and narrower seat and upswept megaphone style silencers are pure 70’s styling and give a fresh sportier look.

A legendary classic that has matured over the years but still remains true to its original roots.

Features & Benefits

Engine
The Bonneville features a fuel injection system designed for clean running and to meet forthcoming Euro 3 legislation. The retro styling remains uncompromised though, as the fuel injectors are cleverly concealed by throttle bodies designed to look like traditional carbs.

Wheels
The Bonneville sports stylish new lightweight 17” cast alloy wheels for 2009, creating an all new look and improving the bike’s agility and low speed handling characteristics.

Exhaust System
Stylish megaphone exhausts mimic those sported by the raciest bikes in the 1970s.

Brakes
The braking set-up of single front 310mm disc and 255mm rear, both worked on by powerful twin-piston calipers, offers sensitivity, control and ample stopping power.

Seat
The 2009 Bonneville’s comfortable seat now features the classic Triumph logo printed in white, while the saddle itself is 25mm lower than on previous models. Combined with a revised riding position, the latest Bonneville provides a more relaxed and accessible ride than ever before.

Chassis
The Bonneville’s low seat height (751mm/29.5inches) and equally low centre of gravity, make it a manageable motorcycle that all riders – ranging from those with little experience to those with lots – can appreciate. The tubular steel double cradle frame is incredibly strong while offering light and precise handling

One definition of an icon is something that is an important, enduring symbol. In the motorcycle universe, few machines fit that definition as well – but not necessarily better – than the Triumph Bonneville. Another definition of an icon is a person who is “the object of great attention and devotion.” Indeed, many fans of Triumph love their Bonnies so much as to personify the machine, pay homage to it and worship at the alter of the British Twin.

The Bonneville struck a chord with riders when it was introduced in 1959 as the T120 – essentially a twin-carb version of the T110 Tiger – and it remained a constant in the line-up until Triumph’s closure in 1983. In 2000, just 10 years after the marquee Brit brand was resurrected by John Bloor, the irrepressible Twin rose from the ashes, and today celebrates 50 years as Triumph model.

The original Bonnie received pivotal updates and enhancements in 1969; key among them was improved carburetion. Like its 1969 ancestor, the 2009 Bonneville has received a major update where petrol mixes with air. Instead of improved carbs, EFI is the name of the game. Fuel-injection is now standard across the entire line of what Triumph calls the Modern Classics: all three versions of the Bonneville, as well as the Thruxton and Scrambler.
