The bikes sport a new Bonneville engine which boasts more torque, better power delivery and even sounds better. Each Bonneville also gets a unique chassis, designed from the ground up. And of course all the bikes make a new style statement.
This was a four year project, which started from the ground up, called on an unprecedented scale of design, engineering and manufacturing skills. The result was the next generation of the Bonneville.

The new Bonneville model lineup

The Street Twin is the most contemporary, fun and accessible new Bonneville, powered by an all-new high torque 900cc engine. With its unique character, distinctive sound, stripped-back styling and dynamic riding experience, the new Street Twin is the perfect Bonneville for today’s rider and the perfect starting point for personalisation.

The timeless style and iconic character of the original 1959 model is reborn in the Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T120 Black. Both crafted to the highest standard of detailing, quality and finish, and matched by the capability and performance of a truly modern classic. Powered by the all-new Bonneville 1200cc high torque engine, fed by beautiful, authentically styled, twin throttle bodies.
The new 1200cc Thruxton and Thruxton R are the real deal. With genuine poise, power and performance, they are the ultimate modern classic café racers. Both with beautifully imposing and authentic styling, they have the power, braking, performance and handling to live up to their legendary name.

New Bonneville Engine family

The Bonneville engine family is the new heart of the iconic British twin. With three new engines:
The 900cc high torque engine of the new Street Twin. Delivering a peak torque of 80Nm at 3200 rpm – which is 18% more than the previous generation, delivered low down and across the entire rev range.
The 1200cc high torque engine of the Bonneville T120 and T120 Black. It produces peak torque of 105Nm at a low 3100 rpm – 54% higher than the previous generation T100.
The 1200cc high power ‘Thruxton spec’ engine. With immediate, exciting power delivery and a peak torque figure of 112Nm at 4950 rpm – 62% higher than the previous generation Thruxton.
All this with the instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection system, and liquid. In addition, the 1200’s all feature rider modes for enhanced responsiveness and control.

The unmistakable sound of a British twin

Each model has a totally new exhaust system with a unique exhaust note.

More capable

The inclusion of rider-focused technology has been implemented - this includes ABS, traction control, slip assist clutch, ride-by-wire throttle and rider modes (T120, T120 Black, Thruxton R and Thruxton), distinctive LED rear lights on all models and LED DRL headlights on all the 1200s (where legislation allows), USB charging socket and an engine immobiliser.
A completely new, ground up chassis design unique to each motorcycle, incorporates all-new suspension and geometry, so all of the new models deliver stunning handling, stability and neutrality tailored to the style and character of each motorcycle, making them easier to ride for longer. This is particularly true when combined with the light action of the new slip assist clutch.

Accessories

With the launch of the new Bonneville custom accessories range, presenting over 470 new, stylish, high quality accessories, it’s easier to create a ‘riders special’. This includes exhausts from Vance & Hines and custom inspired parts, from mudguard removal kits, to bench seats to name a few.
To make life easier, a set of ‘inspiration’ kits have also been created to use as the starting point for riders to create their own Bonneville custom, or to have fitted by their Triumph dealer as a complete set – from Scramblers and Brat Trackers, to Track racers and Café racers. This includes, for the first time, a full factory Thruxton R Race Performance kit, specifically developed for closed circuit competition.
