With the launch of the all new Triumph Bonneville T100, we continue to add market-leading models for riders in India, and take pride in offering the widest range of luxury motorcycles to the discerning Indian rider.”
Inspired by the legendary ’59 Bonneville and styled to incorporate more of the iconic design, silhouette and character of the original, the T100 has its own distinctive character, enhanced by the premium finishes and signature touches of a genuine motorcycle icon.
Sharing the distinctive Bonneville silhouette and many of the features of the T120, the new T100 is a timeless icon, beautifully evolved. From the sculpted lines of the 14.5 litre signature fuel tank, to the intricately detailed Bonneville engine plate and stylish feature-packed twin clocks, the new T100’s set a new standard for quality and finish.
The Bonneville T100 features a wealth of classically inspired detailing and stunning chrome finishes including high-value brushed aluminium covers, classic bolt-on Triumph badges unique to this model, and deep chrome mirrors, mudguard stays, handlebars and headlight bezel.
Contributing to the classic Bonneville profile on the T100 is the detailed comfort seat and pillion seat finished in contrast piping with deeper foam for heightened comfort.
The Bonneville T100 comes in three classically inspired (colour) schemes - Aegean Blue and Fusion White with hand painted coach lines, Intense Orange and New England White with hand painted coach lines and Jet Black.
One of the key areas of development for the T100 model is the new chassis and suspension set-up which significantly enhances comfort levels for the rider giving a better overall riding experience whether for long distance journeys, every day use or with a pillion.
The T100 features a unique longer rear suspension unit and cartridge front forks which work together to offer the rider an engaging yet easy-going riding experience.
The T100 is lighter than the new T120 and also has a shorter wheelbase, rake and trail. This combined with a low seat height and relaxed riding position makes it more accessible and easier to ride than ever before.
To further enhance the superior handling of the T100, the bike is fitted with custom developed Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres as standard, designed especially by Pirelli for the Bonneville family with stiffness and profile changes to the front tyre, and deeper tread on the rear for secure handling and improved durability.
The high standard of detailing, quality and finish is matched by modern capabilities which include a host of rider-focused technology for maximum control and safety.
Ride-by-Wire delivering enhanced rideability, feel, safety and control, from a single throttle body. The latest generation anti-lock braking system – introducing a new level of safety and control yet remaining unobtrusive and with minimal visual impact. Switchable traction control via the instrument menu helps to maximise rider safety and comfort. Torque Assist Clutch which is designed to reduce clutch lever effort for the rider, bringing a lighter touch and feel to the clutch and making it easier to ride, and for longer. LED rear light incorporated into the classic design, it creates a distinctive light pattern with enhanced power efficiency and excellent visibility.
Powered by the critically acclaimed Bonneville 900cc, ‘high torque’ 8 valve, parallel twin engine that offers more torque, better fuel economy and a rich, deeper exhaust note.
Specifically tuned to achieve much higher torque much lower down, it produces a peak torque figure of 80Nm at 3200 rpm – an increase of 18 percent on the outgoing Bonneville T100 for a more thrilling and engaging ride.
With enhanced throttle response from Triumph’s ride-by-wire fuel injection and a slick new five-speed gearbox the T100 models are engineered to deliver a 270° firing interval for a smooth, linear power delivery. A liquid cooling system, carefully integrated into the distinctive character of the Bonneville, reduces fuel emissions and significantly improves fuel efficiency by up to 29 percent. This, combined with a new extended service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000km) dramatically reduces the overall cost of ownership.
The T100’s distinctive twin pea-shooter silencers are crafted in a classic style and come with the Bonneville’s ingenious twin skin design for a superb finish and clean line, delivering a unique rich exhaust note for the unmistakeable sound of a British Twin.
A complete range of over 150 accessories makes it easy for riders to really make their Bonneville T100 their own. For increased comfort and practicality, accessories include heated grips, a centre stand and grab rail and cruise control.
