2009 Triumph Bonneville SE

A pedigree that few models can match.

Just like the Bonneville, the Bonneville SE gets a distinctive 70’s look of its own, but with the addition of special equipment to really set it apart.

A matching speedo and tacho set, polished alloy engine covers on the blacked out engine and a raised metal Triumph tank badge are added to the Bonneville’s distinctive styling. The new cast wheels, upswept silencers, ‘shortie’ mudguards and new lower and narrower seat with white Triumph logo are shared with the new Bonneville.

There’s even a twin colour paint scheme available to go with that classic twin sound.

The result is pure Bonneville with a real retro sporty look, just more of it.


Features & Benefits

Engine
The Bonneville SE features a fuel injection system designed for clean running and to meet forthcoming Euro 3 legislation. The retro styling remains uncompromised though, as the fuel injectors are cleverly concealed by throttle bodies designed to look like traditional carbs.


Wheels
The Bonneville SE sports stylish new lightweight 17” cast alloy wheels for 2009, creating an all new look and improving the bike’s agility and low speed handling characteristics.


Exhaust System

Stylish megaphone exhausts mimic those sported by the raciest bikes in the 1970s.


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 2009 Bonneville SE’s comfortable seat now features the classic Triumph logo printed in white, while the saddle itself is 25mm lower than on previous models. Combined with a revised riding position, the Bonneville SE provides a more relaxed and accessible ride than ever before.


Chassis
The Bonneville SE’s low seat height (751mm/29.5inches) and equally low centre 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 is incredibly strong while offering light and precise handling.

Triumph 2009 Triumph Bonneville SE Media/Press Release(s):

2009 Bonneville, Bonneville SE, T100 and 50th Anniversary Special
Edition

For 2009 Triumph has taken inspiration from the ‘70s for the iconic Bonneville,
with significant updates for the coming year and a new version, the Bonneville
SE, also joining the range. Both models feature authentic retro styling plus a host
of chassis changes aimed at making the bikes easier to ride and giving them an
even wider appeal. Visually, the most striking difference comes with the new 17”
cast alloy wheels at the front and rear, shorter mudguards and stylish
megaphone silencers from the sporty Thruxton.

New handlebars are closer to the rider and the seat height is reduced by 25mm,
making the riding position more relaxed and accessible. The smaller, lighter front
wheel helps make the new Bonneville an even more manoeuvrable and agile
machine. Complementing the clean lines are classic black or white colour
options.

The higher-specification Bonneville SE features an array of special equipment,
including a tacho, chromed tank badges and brushed alloy engine casings. The SE
comes in a choice of solid Jet Black or a classic two-tone livery combining the
dark Pacific Blue with Fusion White.

Riders looking for a Sixties-style Bonneville are catered for with the wire-wheeled
T100 model, which has been updated with detail changes for 2009. The retro
classic gets new handlebar clamps, restyled footrests, black clock surrounds and
a white Triumph logo on the seat, while fork gaiters, previously available as an
optional extra, come as standard.

Triumph also unveiled a limited edition 50th Anniversary Bonneville, based on the
T100, and celebrating 50 years of this iconic motorcycle. Only 650 Bonneville
T100 50th Anniversary edition bikes will be produced, echoing the engine capacity
of the original ‘50s machine. Each will be individually numbered and identified
with a brass plate on the handlebar clamp and a certificate of authentication.
Other features include a unique orange and blue colour scheme based on the
1959 ‘Tangerine Dream’ original, white piping and a gold Triumph logo on the
seat, special decals on the side panels and a chromed cam cover.
Although the Bonneville family share the same name and timeless looks of the
‘60s and ‘70s machines, they feature a modern chassis and fuel-injected, 865cc
twin-cylinder engine.

The 2009 T100 and 50th Anniversary Bonnevillle will be available from the end of
July, and are priced at £5,999 otr* and £6,499 otr* respectively. The 2009
Bonneville and Bonneville SE will be available from January 2009, price to be
confirmed.
