An Original For Everyone

The Bonneville T100 and T100 Black are fantastic entry points into the original Bonneville family since they are beautifully designed and affordable.

The T100 models, which the classic ’59 Bonneville inspires, have their unique character that integrates more of the original Bonneville DNA. Many spectacular finishes, features, and details are seen on the bigger Bonneville T120 and T120 Black models. The 900cc high-torque Bonneville engine in the T100s delivers exhilarating performance, with more torque, improved fuel efficiency, and a rich, deep exhaust tone.

The specialized T100 chassis and suspension work together to deliver a smooth ride, easy, balanced handling, and delicate inclusion of rider-focused technology, like ABS, traction control, and a torque-assist clutch, for further comfort and control. The Bonneville T100 comes in a variety of classic and modern colors, as well as over 150 accessories to let you personalize your bike.

More Presence and Style

For a more somber and refined design, the T100 Black has blacked-out accents and components. Additional design elements, such as a double skin ‘peashooter’ exhaust in matt black finish, contribute to the bike’s luxury reputation. The T100 Black is available in two different colors.

Signature Touches of a Genuine Icon

With a sculpted Bonneville characteristic fuel tank, wire-spoked wheels, original ‘peashooter’ silencers, and two-tone color choices with hand-painted gold coach lines, and the Bonneville T100 family maintains true to the motorcycles’ evocative past and iconic motorcycle shape.

The lines of the T100s are polished, crisp, and sculpted, giving them a traditional but classy appearance. If you want to personalize your vehicle, there is an outstanding selection of over 150 quality accessories available to help you do so.

Original DNA With Beautiful Features

The Bonneville T100 has a variety of brushed, polished, and chromed finishes, including high-value brushed aluminum engine covers and iconic bolt-on Triumph logo unique to the model. The T100 comes in three timeless colors.

Uprated Tires and Disc Brakes

The T100s feature a single floating front brake disc that has been upgraded. Pirelli Phantom Sports comp tires, designed specifically for the Triumph Bonneville line, are fitted on both variants. Added rigidity, front-end profile adjustments, and rear-end tread depth match Bonneville’s aesthetic while ensuring stable handling and long-term durability.

Refined Handling and Comfort

The T100s provide a far higher degree of comfort and handling than previous models. The chassis and suspension have been built expressly for an exciting but easy-going ride, boosting long-distance usage and pillion passenger capacity, and come standard with a more comfortable seat with thicker padding.

Lighter and Even More Accessible

The Bonneville T100s is one of the most affordable Bonneville models, weighing less than the T120s. They are perfect for any sort of ride and rider since they have a shorter wheelbase, rake, and trail than the previous generation, as well as a low seat height.

Elegant Style and Sound

The high torque 900cc engine on the Bonneville T100s has been beautifully designed with a high degree of artistry and quality. It retains the legendary Bonneville appearance by using stylistic elements from the original 59′ Bonneville engine profile while gently adding current components.

The Bonneville T100 has an attractive ‘peashooter’ type exhaust that produces a deep, rich tone reminiscent of an absolute British classic.

900cc ‘High-Torque’ Bonneville Engine

The Bonneville T100s share the same specifically tuned 900cc high-torque Bonneville engine, which offers increased fuel efficiency and a rich, deep exhaust noise where you need it.

The 8-valve single overhead camshaft parallel-twin engine has a 270° firing interval and delivers smooth, linear power via the sleek new 5-speed gearbox.

More Power and Torque

The powerful 900cc engine has been intended to produce significantly more power and torque where you need it most – between 2,750rpm and 4,750rpm – to complement the riding style of this contemporary classic and provide a more exhilarating and engaging ride.

Compared to previous generations, i.e., the 2018 Bonneville T100, the T100 produces 22 percent more power in the middle and a staggering 18 percent higher peak torque with 80 Nm at only 3,200rpm.

Engine Immobilizer

The Bonneville T100 and Bonneville T100 Black include a security feature that consists of a transponder in the T100 key that communicates with a receiver in the ignition system to prevent the engine from starting without the correct key.

USB Charging Socket

For quick charging of your essential electronics, an under-seat plug is offered.

Twin Feature-Packed Clock

Both T100s sport a sleek dual clock (speedo and rev counter) that neatly houses a computerized system that can be accessed using a handlebar-mounted scroll button. Gear position indicator, odometer, service indication, two trip settings, range to empty, fuel level, average and current MPG, clock, and ability to switch off traction control functions are among the key features.

ABS

The anti-lock braking system on the Bonneville T100 and T100 Black provides an improved degree of control and safety.

Ride-by-wire

The electrical ride-by-wire technology on the Bonneville T100 and T100 Black improves throttle response, giving a smooth and accurate drive for improved control and rideability.

Liquid Cooling

With up to 29 percent greater fuel efficiency than earlier air-cooled versions, the new liquid cooling system delivers superior long-term durability and more fuel-efficient riding.

Switchable Traction control

Both T100 models are equipped with a switchable traction control system that optimizes torque delivery for increased rider safety and control.

Torque assist clutch

The torque-assist clutch technology gives the Bonneville T100s a light touch and feels when it comes to clutch management, reducing clutch lever effort for the rider and making it easier to ride and ride longer.

LED Rear Light

The LED rear light has been integrated into a small and attractive tail set-up, giving the Bonneville T100 and T100 Black a unique light pattern and increased power economy for long-term durability.

Be Part Of The Ride – A2 Licence

To make riding a Bonneville more accessible, we provide an A2 license package for the T100 versions.

The A2 package is for riders who do not yet have a full motorcycle license, enabling anybody with a limited license to experience these fantastic new Bonneville’s. Once you have a complete legal motorcycle license, a Triumph dealer may install the A2 equipment and remove it.
