Sharing the distinctive Bonneville silhouette and many of the stunning features of the T120, the new T100 and T100 Black are both timeless icons, beautifully evolved.

Real Accessibility

One of the key areas of development for both T100 models is the new chassis and suspension set-up which significantly enhances comfort levels for the rider giving a better overall riding experience whether for long distance journeys, every day use or with a pillion.

Each model features a unique longer rear suspension unit and cartridge front forks which work together to offer the rider an engaging yet easy-going riding experience.

Both the T100 and T100 Black are lighter than the new T120 and also have a shorter wheelbase, rake and trail than the previous generation T100. This combined with a low seat height and relaxed riding position make them more accessible and easier to ride than ever before for every rider.

To further enhance the superior handling of the T100s, both bikes are fitted as standard with custom developed Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres, designed especially by Pirelli for the Bonneville familywith stiffness and profile changes to the front tyre, and deeper tread on the rear for secure handling and improved durability.

Real Capability

The high standard of detailing, quality and finish is matched by the modern capabilities which includes a host of rider-focused technology for maximum control and safety.

Thrilling performance

Offering all the quality, performance, capability and comfort expected of the modern Bonneville family, the T100 and T100 Black are powered by the critically acclaimed Bonneville 900cc, ‘high torque’ 8 valve, parallel twin engine that offers more torque, better fuel economy and a rich, deeper exhaust note.

Specifically tuned to achieve much higher torque much lower down, it produces a peak torque figure of 80Nm at 3200 rpm – an increase of 18% on the outgoing Bonneville T100 for a more thrilling and engaging ride.

With enhanced throttle response from Triumph’s ride-by-wire fuel injection and a slick new five-speed gearbox the T100 models are engineered to deliver a 270° firing interval for a smooth, linear power delivery. A cutting-edge liquid cooling system, carefully integrated into the distinctive character of the Bonneville, reduces fuel emissions and significantly improves fuel efficiency by up to 29%. This, combined with a new extended service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000km) dramatically reduces the overall cost of ownership.

The T100s distinctive twin pea-shooter silencers are crafted in a classic style and come with the Bonneville’s ingenious twin skin design for a superb finish and clean line, delivering a unique rich exhaust note for the unmistakeable sound of a British Twin.
