60th ANNIVERSARY OF A BRITISH LEGEND.

2019 Triumph Bonneville T120 Diamond Edition:

In 2019 Triumph celebrates the 60th anniversary of the most iconic twin in history, the 1959 Bonneville, with the beautiful Bonneville T120 Diamond Edition, featuring a one-off premium paint scheme and a unique level of high specification finish and detailing.

When the iconic Bonneville T120 first hit the headlines in 1959, it did so at the dawn of a cultural revolution headed by a new generation of teenage motorcyclists with a new sense of optimism, individualism, and freedom.

This fresh vibrant attitude for life at full throttle would become indelibly linked with Triumph motorcycles and, 60 years on from the year those first Bonnevilles took the motorcycling world by storm, we celebrate with something truly special. Still an undisputed motorcycle icon, with a spectacular silhouette that captures the very essence of what a motorbike should be, we now present a unique limited edition version of Triumph’s best-loved modern classic; the Bonneville T120 Diamond Edition.

2019 Triumph Bonneville T120 Diamond Edition Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

STANDARD FEATURES, SHARED WITH THE BONNEVILLE T120

1200cc High Torque engine

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

Built specifically for the modern classic riding style, with immediate and exciting torque delivery, it produces a peak torque figure of 105Nm at a low 3,100 rpm – an amazing 54% more than the previous generation.

With the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection and engine management system, the six-speed 1200cc Bonneville engine is engineered with a charismatic tone and 270° firing interval for characterful, linear power delivery.

The engine profile has been beautifully crafted to incorporate key heritage styling cues from the legendary 60’s Bonneville bikes, sensitively incorporating contemporary components to maintain that iconic engine silhouette.

Behind the 1200 engine’s stylish exterior sits a cutting-edge liquid cooling system, carefully integrated 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.

Finally, elegant peashooter style exhausts follow a clean ‘straight line run’ achieved through an ingenious twin skin design that covers the pipe run through the cat box and out again. It delivers the true sound of a British twin, with a deep and rich exhaust note that truly matches the T120 character, tuned to a level you would want and expect.

Modern capability

The Bonneville T120 Diamond Edition shares all of the T120’s advanced standard of capability, with a wealth of rider-focused technology to deliver exceptional control, safety and enhanced rider confidence – integrated sensitively and without compromise to maintain the authentic Bonneville style and character.
