2009 Triumph Bonneville T100 50th Anniversary Edition

Based on the standard Bonneville T100, 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 2009 Triumph Bonneville T100 50th Anniversary Edition Media/Press Release(s):

2009 Bonneville, Bonneville SE, T100 and 50th Anniversary Special Edition

For 2009 Triumph has taken inspiration from the ‘70s for the iconic Bonneville, with significant updates for the coming year and a new version, the Bonneville SE, also joining the range. Both models feature authentic retro styling plus a host of chassis changes aimed at making the bikes easier to ride and giving them an even wider appeal. Visually, the most striking difference comes with the new 17” cast alloy wheels at the front and rear, shorter mudguards and stylish megaphone silencers from the sporty Thruxton.

New handlebars are closer to the rider and the seat height is reduced by 25mm, making the riding position more relaxed and accessible. The smaller, lighter front wheel helps make the new Bonneville an even more manoeuvrable and agile machine. Complementing the clean lines are classic black or white colour options.

The higher-specification Bonneville SE features an array of special equipment, including a tacho, chromed tank badges and brushed alloy engine casings. The SE comes in a choice of solid Jet Black or a classic two-tone livery combining the dark Pacific Blue with Fusion White.

Riders looking for a Sixties-style Bonneville are catered for with the wire-wheeled T100 model, which has been updated with detail changes for 2009. The retro classic gets new handlebar clamps, restyled footrests, black clock surrounds and a white Triumph logo on the seat, while fork gaiters, previously available as an optional extra, come as standard.

Triumph also unveiled a limited edition 50th Anniversary Bonneville, based on the T100, and celebrating 50 years of this iconic motorcycle. Only 650 Bonneville T100 50th Anniversary edition bikes will be produced, echoing the engine capacity of the original ‘50s machine. Each will be individually numbered and identified with a brass plate on the handlebar clamp and a certificate of authentication. Other features include a unique orange and blue colour scheme based on the 1959 ‘Tangerine Dream’ original, white piping and a gold Triumph logo on the seat, special decals on the side panels and a chromed cam cover. Although the Bonneville family share the same name and timeless looks of the ‘60s and ‘70s machines, they feature a modern chassis and fuel-injected, 865cc twin-cylinder engine.
