Behind the appearance of the 1200 Bonneville engine is an innovative liquid cooling system that has been carefully developed to reduce visual effects while generating fewer emissions and improved fuel economy – 13 percent better than the previous generation. It, paired with a 10,000-mile (16,000-kilometer) service interval, lowers the total cost of ownership significantly.

The latest generation 1200cc offers substantially more power lower down and over the whole rev range, with 50 percent more power at 4,500rpm, compared to the old engine’s 80PS at 6,550rpm.

The six-speed Bonneville T120 is developed with a distinctive tone and 270° firing interval for smooth, linear power delivery, thanks to Triumph’s latest generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection and engine management system’s pin-point precision and fast throttle response.

Beautiful Style and Sound

The Bonneville T120 gives the authentic sound of a British twin. This deep and rich tone genuinely reflects its character, set to a level you would like and expect, thanks to exquisite pea-shooter-type exhausts following a clean straight line header pipe run.
