2008 Triumph Bonneville

A pedigree that few models can match.

A true roadster, the Bonneville matches classic British style to 21st century technology. This pairing of authenticity with modernity has led the Bonneville to become an icon in its own right with several famous designers creating their own signature tank designs. A cool way to cover the urban landscape; the Bonneville is agile in jammed streets and at home blatting down a leafy country lane. It has a pedigree few models can match plus a tangible credibility within today’s motorcycling world.

Also available is the subtle Bonneville Black – a Jet Black Bonneville complemented by a black engine finish.

The Modern Classics Range – Bikes that reflect the original freedom and fun of biking. Beautifully engineered and meticulously detailed – they’re the real thing. Powered by authentic air-cooled parallel twins, their performance, handling, brakes and fuel injection are bang up to date. And the look? – that’s genuinely classic.

 

FEATURES:

Engine
The Bonneville’s air-cooled, parallel twin cylinder engine offers a cubic capacity of 865cc for excellent midrange torque. Both pistons rise and fall together via a 360° crankshaft firing interval so the classic character of a British twin-cylinder engine is retained, whilst twin balancer shafts provide civility and refinement. 90% of peak torque is maintained from around 2500rpm through to redline providing smooth, effortless acceleration throughout the five gears.

Fueling
Twin carburetors with throttle position sensor and electric carburetor heaters

Exhaust System
A pair of classically styled peashooter pipes handle the exhaust gases and enhance the retro feel of the bike.

Brakes
The braking set-up of single front 310mm disc and 255mm rear, both worked on by powerful twin-piston calipers, offers sensitivity, control and ample stopping power.

Seat
The Bonneville’s seat is generous with plenty of room for two and elegantly embossed with the Triumph logo.

Chassis
The Bonneville’s low seat height (30.5inches) and similarly low center of gravity, make it a manageable motorcycle that all riders – ranging from those with little experience to those with lots – can appreciate. The tubular steel double cradle frame and box-section swingarm are incredibly strong and the relaxed steering geometry allows composure at speed as well as ensuring the Bonnie needs only light input at the handlebars.
