Since 2009, the Triumph Bonneville entered a new era of performance, style and nostalgia by diversifying their range in a way that was as desired as it was anticipated.

The 2010 Bonneville gets a pair of 17” cast wheels, Thruxton-like exhaust and short style fenders to enhance the sporty look. Also, the riding position is slightly different due to a lowered and narrowed seat, but this modern interpretation of the Bonneville still retains the classy lines and distinctive features that made this name famous.

Apparently, the 2010 Bonneville SE looks simply like a two-tone painted standard model, but it’s really more of it than just that. Apart from the New Bonneville, the SE features matching speedometer and tachometer set, chromed Triumph tank badge and a more modern overall appearance.

The central piece of all these bikes is Triumph’s unmatched 865cc, air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin, 360 degree firing interval engine which is fed through a multipoint sequential electronic fuel injection system. Triumph was needed to design the fuel-injection system in order for the bike to meet stricter and stricter environmental regulations so they retain the same riding feel by tuning the motor to develop 66bhp at 7,500 rpm and at 5,800 rpm, which is as close as possible to the previous model year’s performances.

In what concerns dimensions, the bikes are also slightly different. The Bonneville and SE models are both shorter and a little bit wider than the T100 model and feature a 27 degree/106mm rake and trail instead of the Classic model’s 28 degree/110mm. The Bonneville gets rid of the 3.5 gallons tank and upgrades to its sibling’s 4.2 gallons unit

Very often, the Bonneville name says it all and it’s all because of the great heritage that this model provided Triumph and the entire motorcycle industry with.

Although the Hinckley-based motorcycle manufacturer introduced the first Bonneville back in 1959, it was the 1960 Bonneville T120 that caught the big wave for Triumph mostly thanks to the classic blue and grey colour scheme, blade style mudguard and integrated headlamp/instrument nacelle. And these, together with an authenticity plague on the front yoke, are precisely the aspects that set the 1960 Anniversary Edition apart from the Bonneville T100.

Ever since the Bonneville was launched 51 years ago, the whole deal about it was the unique design as well as riding feel and as we all know, these two are strong related. Amazing refinements and a comfortable seating position made the Bonneville THE bike to ride in the 1960s, especially is you lived in England.

Also a result of modern requirements, the 2010 Triumph Bonneville is what we like to call a modern retro. This is the kind of bike that replaces the standard spoked wheels with 17” cast wheels wrapped in sharpened fairings and featuring megaphone style silencers. The mechanical parts are matte black painted while the colors available for it are Jet Black and Fusion White.

The 2010 Triumph Bonneville SE undergoes pretty much the same transformation if we take the T100 model as base; only that this bike features polished alloy engine covers, while the engine remains blacked out. The color schemes available for the Special Edition model are Jet Black and Pacific Blue/Fusion White.

The New Bonneville/Bonneville SE features a fuel injection system designed for clean running and to meet 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. Polished alloy side covers come as standard on the Bonneville SE.

The New Bonneville/Bonneville SE sports stylish new lightweight 17” cast alloy wheels for 2010, creating an all new look and improving the bike’s agility and low speed handling characteristics.

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

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.

The 2010 Bonneville’s/Bonneville SE’s comfortable seat is 1.3 in lower than on previous models. Combined with a revised riding position, the Bonneville SE provides a more relaxed and accessible ride than ever before.

The New Bonneville’s/Bonneville SE’s low seat height (29.1inches) and low center 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.
