Bang up to date engineering. Retro meets modern. Double-barrelled, fuel-injected responsiveness from the 865cc parallel twin. Smooth pulling, double-barrelled fun. A mellow backbeat from the twin peashooter exhausts. Chrome engine covers. Black instrument surround with tacho. Triumph logo on the seat. Two-tone paint. Spoked wheels. Fork gaiters. You got the look. Motorcycling the way it's meant to be. Ride it with a smile.

 

Timeless 60's styling. 21st century engineering. 100% Bonneville.

The classic Triumph. Parallel-twin, spoked wheels and lashings of quality chrome. The T100 is our modern interpretation of the classic Bonnevilles that ruled the roost back in the 1960s.

Twin pea-shooter exhausts, two-tone paint, and that Triumph embossed seat say ‘classic British motorcycle.’ While the T100 may look like it's come straight out of ‘the day,’ the technology and ride experience most definitely do not.

The 865cc engine, an air-cooled parallel twin of course, is fitted with up to date fuel injection for clean and efficient riding. Plus, the suspension and brakes are bang up to date too, You won’t have to sacrifice today’s technology to satisfy your taste for classic, vintage design. Riding the way it was in the 'hay day'. Performance the way it is today.

Triumph Bonneville T100
Triumph's Bonneville ruled the roads during the 1960s and no modern motorcycle replicates so closely the style and experience of those golden years than the modern day Bonneville T100.

With its traditional wire wheels and coachlined two-tone paintwork, the Bonneville T100 looks like it could have been built in 1969. But look closer and you will see a modern machine dripping with authentic touches only Triumph can deliver.

Outwardly that 865cc parallel-twin may resemble the classic 650cc pushrod motors of "the day", but the Bonneville T100's double overhead camshaft engine is bang up to date with modern fuel injection for clean running and modern levels of performance and reliability.

Neat retro touches like the "carburettors" that hide the fuel injectors, dummy pushrod tubes and positioning of the ignition key pay respect to Bonneville legend, but while bypassers will admire the Bonneville T100, it's the riding experience that really delivers. Only the modern disc brakes give the game away.

Turn the key, down at the left hand side of the headlight just like the first Bonnevilles, and enjoy the mellow soundtrack of that traditional British parallel-twin. Twist the throttle and that 68PS engine delivers real world performance, with the 41mm front forks and traditional chromed rear shocks providing poised handling and a comfortable ride.

While the standard Bonneville and Bonneville SE already deliver an authentic roadster experience, the T100 takes things a stage further with real 1960s detailing. Peashooter silencers, classic two-tone colour options and spoked steel wheels (with a larger 19in front) give the T100 more presence and the sort of kudos only a "Brit twin" can deliver.

The two-tone colour options complement the traditional Bonneville styling and have the added touch of gold or silver coachlines, painted by hand just as they always have been.

Completing the T100's 1960s look are rubber fork gaiters, knee pads and classically styled handlebar mounted speedometer and rev counter, which includes a clock and trip information.

The 2012 T100, with its 60s style, introduces two new versions of two colors, the metallic Cranberry Red / New England White and Graphite / Black Phantom enriched by a thin pipeline of gold made by hand.
