BONNEVILLE 2021 BRITISH ICONS. BEAUTIFULLY EVOLVED. MORE PERFORMANCE. MORE CAPABILITY. MORE STYLE.

Triumph’s legendary modern classic motorcycle family has been evolved for 2021, with a host of significant updates across the line-up, including enhanced performance, capability and style.

From the timeless classic Bonneville T120, T120 Black and T100, to the stylish and contemporary custom Street Twin and new Street Twin Gold Line limited edition, the laid-back Bonneville Speedmaster cruiser and the pure custom Bonneville Bobber, each one has been beautifully evolved.

1959 BONNEVILLE T120. The original British Superbike.

When the Bonneville T120 was launched in 1959 it changed the motorcycle world, not just because of its stunning looks, but also because it redefined what performance and motorcycling was all about. The combination of its twin cylinder and twin carburettor performance, its step change in handling and a new and unique blend of British design with 50’s Americana made the T120 a global success, where it went on to play a huge part in the explosion of 1960’s teenage biking culture in the UK, and across the world.

This legendary Triumph was famously named after the 1956 motorcycle land speed record breaking ‘Texas Cee-Gar’ streamliner Triumph, which smashed the world record hitting 214.4mph at the home of speed, the Bonneville salt flats in the USA, piloted by Texan racing legend Johnny Allen.

With a performance advantage, due to its parallel twin Triumph engine in a unique new twin carb set-up, and lightweight Triumph chassis, this original Bonneville T120 became the starting point for many of the modern classic motorcycle styles available today, where riders in the 60’s modified the T120 to create the first Bonnie café racers, custom roadsters, cruisers, bobbers and desert sled scramblers. Each of those custom bike styles went on to become iconic motorcycles in their own right, which continue today – all from that original 59 Bonneville DNA. These original customs become the bike of choice for famous motorcyclists across multiple generations, who used the Bonneville to race, ride and personalise including American movie legend Steve McQueen.

In the modern era at Triumph’s R&D center in Hinckley the Bonneville evolution has continued since its re-introduction into the line-up in 2001, with a focus on maintaining that original essence and iconic signature design features, from the timeless silhouette to their signature British twin torque rich performance and sound, married to truly modern capability and a ride to match its legendary looks. With a commitment and promise to always deliver today’s Bonneville’s, this new 2021 generation once again takes a step forward with Triumphs class leading handling, premium finish and thrilling performance – all designed to deliver today’s Bonneville.

 

 

2021 Triumph Bonneville T100 Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Enhanced Performance

The new Triumph Bonneville T100 features a high torque, 900cc twin-cylinder Bonneville engine, which has undergone significant updates for 2021, resulting in a lighter and more responsive powertrain.

The peak power is 10PS higher than the previous generation, at 65PS at 7,400 rpm, while peak torque is 80NM at 3750 rpm, with 80% of peak torque available all the way from 2000 rpm to 7000rpm, giving strong acceleration whenever it’s needed. The updates give the new 2021 Bonneville T100 increased power and torque from a low 3500rpm and all the way up to the rev red line, which is 500rpm higher than the previous version.

The new T100 engine also exceeds EURO 5 regulations and now has lower emissions and excellent fuel economy.

Thanks to the low inertia crank shaft, lighter balancer shafts, a thin walled clutch cover and a magnesium cam cover, the engine of the new T100 is considerably lighter than the previous version, significantly contributing to the 4kg weight reduction of the new 2021 Bonneville T100. This weight loss, combined with the higher power, translates into a remarkable improvement in the throttle response and ride.

A very high service interval of 10,000 miles or 16,000 kilometres helps to keep the ongoing cost of ownership low.

For European markets, the T100 can be fitted with an A2 license kit, which can be easily removed by a Triumph dealer when the owner has passed their test to reinstate full power. Local market legislative requirements will apply.

 

Enhanced Handling

The handling of the 2021 Bonneville T100 has been enhanced by the 4kg weight reduction, notably improving the bike’s agility.

The T100 also comes with a higher specification Brembo 2-piston front brake for excellent stopping power, with more bite and better feel.

The new higher specification cartridge front forks, combined with the twin rear shocks and the 32-spoke classically styled wheels, further enhance the T100’s agile and easy-handling feel for a confidence-inspiring ride.

The latest generation ABS and switchable traction control are sensitively and unobtrusively incorporated to maximise the rider’s safety and to ensure a smooth riding experience.

The comfort is ensured by a comfortable rider and pillion seat, perfect for short and longer rides, and a torque-assist clutch to reduce rider fatigue.

The seat is released via a key for easy access to the under seat USB and the seat height is an accessible 790mm. Together with the T100’s narrow stand-over profile, this gives a planted and secure feel at a standstill.

Enhanced Style and Detailing

The new 2021 Bonneville T100 is also equipped with a new instrument dial face, with Bonneville branding and a traditional typeface. The integrated, multi-function display is easily controlled through the handlebar mounted scroll button.

Reflecting the T100’s original Bonneville DNA, there are beautiful and authentic styling details throughout, from the contrast piping on the seat, to the knee pads on the signature Bonneville tank cut-outs, the steel rear mudguard, the chrome-finished mirrors, chrome handlebars, chrome headlamp bezel and chrome filler cap.  The compact and elegant rear light is fully LED for power efficiency and stylish high visibility.

The new 2021 Bonneville T100 is available in three classic colours – the Lucerne Blue and Fusion White scheme, with hand-painted silver coach lines; a sleek, single tone Jet Black option or a second twin colour scheme, in Carnival Red & Fusion White, with hand-painted silver coach lines.

The rider can personalize their T100 thanks to a range of 117 genuine accessories. These have all been developed and tested alongside the bike to ensure perfect integration and provide plenty of options to personalise the T100 according to the rider’s taste and needs.

Available within the accessory range, owners will find a wide catalogue of luggage, plus options for seats and screens. Internally wired heated grips add comfort and aid control in colder climates, while the cruise control option lessens throttle fatigue on longer journeys.

Further blacked out style with the black exhaust headers, rings and silencers can be adopted thanks to the list of available Genuine Triumph Accessories.

HIGHER POWER AND PERFORMANCE

Now Euro 5 compliant, the famous torque-rich Bonneville 900cc HT engine now delivers 10PS more power, a sharper throttle response and reduced emissions.

 

HIGHER SPECIFICATION EQUIPMENT

New enhanced specification cartridge forks and uprated Brembo brakes, give you excellent stopping power and more control, for an even more comfortable ride.

 

HIGH SPECIFICATION TECHNOLOGY

The latest rider technology, beautifully incorporated into the Bonneville’s classic lines, includes ABS, traction control, and torque assist clutch.
