Triumph reveals new Bonneville range
More performance, capability and style. That's the recipe for Triumph's iconic Bonneville range in 2021.
The 2021 range, at launch, will include the Bonneville T120, T120 Black and T100, the contemporary Street Twin and the new limited edition Street Twin Gold Line (limited to 1000 units globally); the Speedmaster, and the Bonneville Bobber.
The 2021 Triumph Scrambler range will join them at the back end of April this year. Each variant was developed in Triumph's advanced R&D facility in Hinkley, where the dedicated UK design team created, engineered and prototype every motorcycle.
The Bonneville T120 and T120 Black receive updated 1200cc high torque twin engines, providing more responsiveness and lower emissions. A 7kg weight reduction has also been confirmed, thanks to lightweight componentry.
Higher spec equipment including new Brembo brakes with twin discs, and a new cruise control system are also standard, as are enhanced road and rain riding modes.
The 2021 Bonneville T100 carries the same theme with an increase in power (7.35kW) and a 500rpm higher red line. Triumph have again managed to strip weight from the bike to enhance handling as well (4kg in this case).
In addition, they've added a higher spec Brembo front brake and new cartridge forks. For the Street Twin, Triumph has added two riding modes, an LED rear light, ABS and switchable traction control.
It also features a new, more comfortable bench seat with a seat height of 765mm, new cast wheels and new brushed aluminium detailing. And in an exciting move, they've added the Gold Line (which comes complete with a certificate of authenticity).
Apart form all the upgrades offered on the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin, the Gold Line will receive a unique matte Sapphire Black paint scheme with hand painted gold detailing.
The Bonneville Speedmaster shares the same 900cc twin engine as the Street Twin and Gold Line, scoring higher specification Showa 47mm cartridge forks with a focus on improved rider and pillion comfort.
The final bike in the new range is perhaps also our personal favourite, in the form of the Bonneville Bobber. A host of styling upgrades, including a larger 12-litre fuel tank and new 16-inch fat front wheel feature, giving the bike a tough look and attitude.
Paired with a black powder coated engine, cam and sprocket covers, it looks exceptional. There's also new instrument styling, and higher specification Brembo brakes and Showa forks.
And just to ensure you can tailor your Bonneville bike to your individual nature, there are literally hundreds of accessories available.
The 2021 Triumph Bonneville range is due to arrive in Q2 of this year, with pricing to be finalised closer to launch. Further information is available from your local Triumph Motorcycles dealer.
