2011 Triumph Bonneville

The Bonneville. Say no more.

The most famous name in motorcycling. A legend. Over 50 years of engineering excellence. A thoroughly modern interpretation of the authentic ‘proper’ motorcycle. This iconic symbol of rebellion and independence is even more appealing now thanks to its modern specification, low seat, clean fuel-injected 865cc engine and lightweight 17 inch alloys for even sharper handling. Stirs the heart, not the wallet.

The engine is bang up to date too. An air-cooled parallel-twin as only a Bonneville can be, the 865cc unit employs modern fuel injection technology for clean running and excellent fuel economy, with that sound and feel that only a Triumph delivers.

With its cast wheels, short mudguards and simple black or white color schemes, the look is pure 70’s. Modern engineering with a classic style. The Bonneville delivers a pure and unadulterated experience for riders of all ages.

The most famous name in motorcycling. A legend. An evolution.

With the latest Triumph Bonneville you’re riding over 50 years of engineering excellence. A thoroughly modern interpretation of the definitive ‘proper’ motorcycle, this iconic symbol of rebellion and independence is even more accessible thanks to its low and narrow seat, clean and efficient fuel-injected engine and lightweight 17 inch alloy wheels for even sharper handling.

An air-cooled parallel-twin as only a Bonneville can be, the 865cc unit employs modern fuel injection technology for clean running and excellent economy.

 

Triumph Bonneville/Bonneville SE

Named after the venue where Triumph broke numerous land speed records in the 1950s,
the Bonneville is, for many people, the most iconic Triumph of all time.

Originally introduced in 1959, the Bonneville was the sporting bike of the day and the bike to beat
in production-based racing right through to the 1970s.

Today’s Bonneville takes the style and spirit of those famous bikes of the 1970s and blends in
thoroughly modern engineering to create a classic British twin for the 21st century rider.

The air-cooled 865cc power plant is a modern design but styled to look like a authentic parallel-twin
of the 1960s, right down to the ecarburettorsf that hide the modern fuel injectors and dummy
pushrod tubes.

But beneath the retro looks lies a very current and usable motorcycle that appeals to new and
experienced motorcyclists alike. Thumb the electric starter and todayfs Bonneville comes to life
instantly and with the distinctive tone that only a parallel twin can deliver. A healthy 68PS and 68Nm
of torque give the modern day Bonneville peppy performance that is at home both in the city and on
the open road.

Lightweight 17h cast alloy wheels make the Bonneville agile and easy to ride, while the low 740mm
seat height makes the accessible to motorcyclists of all ages and experience, while short mudguards
and stylish chrome megaphone silencers complete the 1970s look.

The higher specification Bonneville SE adds a tachometer, chromed tank badge and brushed alloy
engine cases for added practicality and even more classic look.

Colour options reflect the traditional styling of the Bonneville. The standard model comes with metallic
paint as standard for 2011, with Phantom Black and Crystal White options, while the Bonneville SE
is available in Phantom Black or two dual colour alternatives: Intense Orange with Phantom Black or
Pacific Blue with Fusion White.

A wide range of official Triumph accessories are also available for the Bonneville range, including
alternative seats, practical screens and leather panniers.

2011 Triumph Bonneville Features and Benefits

The name and look may be traditional, but don’t for one second think that the Bonneville is old-fashioned.

At the heart is a modern 865cc parallel-twin engine that’s fuel-injected for easy starting, sweet running and compliance to even the strictest modern emissions regulations. You’ll have to look twice though, as traditional carburettor bodies are used to disguise the throttle bodies.
Keeping it all in check is a modern chassis that provides sweet handling and stunning agility, thanks in no small part to those 17” alloy wheels, while the low seat height makes the Bonneville manageable and unintimidating for riders of all ages and experience.

A wide range of accessories are also available for the Bonneville, allowing riders to personalise the Bonneville to meet their specific needs.

 

Engine

The Bonneville features a fuel injection system designed for clean running and to meet 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. Polished alloy side covers come as standard on the new Bonneville.

Wheels

The Bonneville sports stylish lightweight 17” cast alloy wheels, 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

Bonneville’s comfortable seat is 35mm/1.3in lower than on previous models. Combined with a revised riding position, the latest Bonneville provides a more relaxed and accessible ride than ever before.


Chassis

The Bonneville’s low seat height (740mm/29.1inches) and 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.
