2010 Triumph Bonneville 60/Sixty/1960 Anniversary Edition

Only 600 units of this commemorative edition of the 1960 Bonneville will be built, 100 of which will come to North America. Each motorcycle features two-tone Meriden and Caspian Blue paint, a numbered handlebar clamp plaque and a certificate of authenticity.

Timeless 60s styling. 21st century engineering. 100% Bonneville.

The classic Triumph. Parallel-twin, spoked wheels and lashings of quality chrome. The T100 is our modern interpretation of the classic Bonnevilles that ruled the roost back in the 1960s.

Twin pea-shooter exhausts, two-tone paint and that Triumph embossed seat say ‘classic British motorcycle’ but while the T100 may look like its come straight out of ‘the day’, the technology and ride experience most definitely do not.

The 865cc engine, an air-cooled parallel twin of course, is fitted with up to date fuel injection for clean and efficient running and the suspension and brakes are bang up to date too, so you won’t sacrifice today’s technology with your taste of yesterday. Biking the way it was. And how it is today.


 

 

Features and Benefits


Overview

The Bonneville was first introduced in 1959, although the 1960 Bonneville T120 was commonly regarded as a more handsome creation than the earliest models thanks to its classic blue and grey colour scheme, blade style mudguard and integrated headlamp/instrument nacelle.

 


Two-tone paint scheme

Inspired by the classic colour scheme of the 1960 incarnation of Triumph’s most famous model, the Bonneville Sixty is a limited run of 650 T100s featuring a unique two-tone Meriden Blue/Caspian Blue combination.

 


Pin Stripes

The paint finish has hand-painted pinstripes that give a premium finish.

 


Authenticity Plaque

To add to the Bonneville Sixty’s limited edition appeal, each motorcycle comes with a numbered plaque on the handlebar clamp and an individual certificate of authenticity.

PRESS RELEASE

Triumph Motorcycles Announces New Models;

Looks Forward to a Strong 2010
100,000th motorcycle to be sold since returning to North America

ORLANDO, Fla. (February 23, 2010) – Triumph Motorcycles celebrated its U.S. Dealer Conference by announcing the continued expansion of its product line and the pending sale of its 100,000th motorcycle since returning to North America just 15 years ago.

“Triumph has methodically grown our model range and dealer network over the past 15 years, and we have even more great things in store for customers in the coming years,” said Mark Kennedy, CEO of Triumph Motorcycles North America. “Triumph has maintained our commitment to new product development, so customers will continue to see great new products that push the envelope in terms of styling, performance and reliability. The next few years are going to be a lot of fun, and we?re really looking forward to the journey.”

Triumph currently offers 16 different models in three motorcycle families: Cruiser, Urban Sport and Modern Classic. That will grow to 23 models across seven motorcycle families by the end of 2012 and include categories where Triumph does not currently compete.


In addition to the standard model range, motorcyclists will get to choose from a number of new and special edition (SE) models in 2010 that will be offered in limited numbers.

Thunderbird SE: The 1600cc (98 cubic inch) Thunderbird SE comes standard with new Carnival Red paint, ABS, a quick detach touring windshield with wind deflectors, leather saddle bags, touring seat, quick detach passenger back rest with luggage rack, and rider and passenger floor boards. MSRP is $14,999.

Thunderbird 1700: The optional “big bore” 1700cc (104 cubic inch) engine upgrade, which increases peak power from 85bhp to 99bhp, and ABS come standard and features a stunning Phantom Red Haze paint that is exclusive to this model. MSRP is $14,799.

Bonneville 60: Only 600 units of this commemorative edition of the 1960 Bonneville will be built, 100 of which will come to North America. Each motorcycle features two-tone Meriden and Caspian Blue paint, a numbered handlebar clamp plaque and a certificate of authenticity. MSRP is $8,999.

Bonneville T100 Black: The “Bonnie Black” was created in response to customer requests for an all-black Bonneville with spoke wheels and a tachometer. MSRP is $8,599.

Speed Triple SE: The original “streetfighter” motorcycle receives special Tornado Red paint with a Crystal White center stripe, seat cowl and flyscreen. MSRP is $11,299.

Daytona 675 SE: The Pearl White bodywork over a Sparkle Blue chassis was so successful in 2009 that the bike returns with a striking new graphics package and carbon fiber trim. MSRP is $10,299.

Triumph has won awards in virtually every motorcycle segment, most recently Cycle World magazine’s “Cruiser of the Year” for the 1600cc Thunderbird and Motorcycle.com’s “Motorcycle of the Year” for the 675cc Street Triple R. As a testament to the strength of Triumph?s products and customer interest in the brand, in 2009 Triumph added 23 dealers to its North American dealer network and became

one of just two manufacturers to report an increase in market share every year for the last five years.
