THE URBAN SPORTS BONNEVILLE

The Street Cup is a stunning addition to the Street Family.

With dynamic urban sports focused ergonomics, dropped ‘Ace’ bars and dedicated rear suspension, the Street Cup delivers an engaging riding position with smooth and agile handling.

The 900cc high-torque Bonneville engine is perfectly tuned for a blast around town, or escaping it all on twisty B-roads. Wherever you ride you are always accompanied by a raw, rich soundtrack from its shorter, lighter twin upswept satin black and stainless steel silencers.

The sensitive incorporation of rider focused technology, ride-by-wire, switchable traction control, ABS, torque-assist clutch and low seat height, provide an enhanced level of confidence, comfort and control.

**EUROPE ONLY** An A2 licence kit will be available for the Street Cup from late Spring 2017, making it an excitably accessible addition to the Bonneville family. Built to personalise, you can choose from over 120 accessories to add even more attitude, style and comfort to this sporty classic.

 

THE ORIGINAL BRITISH SUPERBIKE

Named to celebrate the 1956 motorcycle land speed record smashing Triumph streamliner and built to deliver class leading performance, adding twin carbs to the snarling Tiger 110, the 59 Bonneville was born. A race winner straight out of the crate, Bonneville was there at the birth of modern motorsport, winning AMA Flat Track races, the Isle of Man TT, the International Six Day Trials and countless Thruxton 500 races, where it got its legendary racing name. Lusted after by a generation of 60’s teenage rockers it was first choice for famous bikers including the iconic movie star Steve McQueen.

 

BONNEVILLE ENGINE FAMILY

A new generation Bonneville engine family built specifically for the modern classic riding style, with more torque, more immediate and exciting power delivery and a richer sound you can really feel and hear. With three new engines – the 900cc high torque engine of the new Street Twin and Street Cup and Bonneville T100 and T100 Black – delivering 18% more peak torque than the previous generation, the 1200cc high torque engine of the Bonneville T120 and T120 Black with over 54% more torque, and the game changing 1200cc high power ‘Thruxton spec’ engine which punches out over 62% more than torque the previous Thruxton 900.

All with truly modern capability, including ride-by-wire, for sharper responsiveness and liquid cooling for amazing fuel economy, 36% improvement on the Bonneville T100 alone.
