October 13, 2014

Motorbike Mondays

Triumph is one of the most famous names in motorcycling, and the brand has proven that it’s still at the top of its game with its most recent offering – the Triumph Bonneville T100. This motorbike combines over 50 years of motorcycling heritage with the best of modern innovative performance to make something truly special. In our Triumph T100 review, we’ll give you a taste of why this sexy beast should be on every motorbike fan’s wishlist.

  • Combines classic values with innovative performance

  • Available in four different styles of two-tone paintwork

  • Dripping with authentic touches

Design

This bike is full of authentic style, and it looks as though it could easily have been built in the 1960s – but it’s still distinctly a Bonneville. Visual tweaks include twin peashooter exhausts, chrome engine covers, black instrument surround with tacho, a Triumph logo on the seat, two-tone paint, spoked wheels and fork gaiters – making the Triumph T100 an undeniable triumph of design. The two-tone bodypaint is one of the more distinctive features of this bike, available in four different equally stunning styles – intense orange/jet black, caspian blue/jet black, fusion white/aurum gold and, finally, jet black/cranberry red.

Features

The features of the Triumph T100 aren’t exactly in line with its 60s design, with the T100 offering a practical and modern all-rounder – albeit a stunning, inspiring and iconic one. Electronic ignition and fuel-injection allow for better reliability and lower emissions – with a punchier and more responsive throttle. A matching speedo and tachometer sit proudly over the chromed headlight and deliver a comprehensive instrument package – while accessories available include a king and queen seat unit, a stylish chrome mirror kit and genuine leather panniers.

Performance

Despite their striking design,Triumph Motorcycles have always been built to be ridden – not just admired – and the T100 is no different. With its smooth pulling fuel injected 865cc parallel twin, the Triumph puts out a healthy 68PS – with 68 Nm of torque at its peak, and plenty available at low revs so you get the most use out of it. So enough performance to provide fun for experienced riders, and not so much that it will intimidate riders with fewer miles behind them. Although this bike may evoke memories of the past, its performance, handling and reliability definitely belong in the modern era.

 

A brand new Triumph Bonneville T100 will set you back £7,599, while a special edition model will cost slightly more.
