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