2017 Triumph Bonneville T120 Black www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCED FUEL ECONOMY

Behind the new 1200 Bonneville engine’s exterior is an advanced liquid cooling system sensitively designed to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving cleaner emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency – 13% better than the previous generation. This, combined with a new extended service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000km) dramatically reduces the overall cost of ownership.


THRILLING NEW ENGINE

The authentic character of the Bonneville T120 comes to life through the all new 1200cc ‘high torque’ 8 valve, parallel twin engine.

Built specifically for the modern classic riding style, with immediate and exciting power delivery, it produces a massive peak torque fiqure of 77.4FT-lbs at a low 3100 rpm – an amazing 54% more than the previous generation. With a power output of 80Hp at 6,550rpm, 18% up on the previous engine, the new 1200cc delivers much more power lower down and across the whole rev range, with 50% more power at 4,500rpm. With the pin-point accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection and engine management system, the six-speed Bonneville T120 is engineered with a charismatic tone and 270° firing interval for a linear power delivery.


BEAUTIFUL STYLE AND SOUND

The new Bonneville 1200cc engine profile has been beautifully styled with a high level of detailing and finish to incorporate key heritage styling cues from the legendary 60’s Bonneville engine silhouette whilst incorporating contemporary components sensitively to maintain that iconic and authentic look.

With all new elegant pea-shooter style exhausts following a clean straight line header pipe run, the Bonneville T120 delivers the true sound of a British twin, a deep and rich note that truely matches its character, tuned to a level you would want and expect.
