Triumph Bonneville T120 Black
Triumph Bonneville T120 Black Overview
When Triumph came out with Bonneville Street Twin, everyone thought that it’s not a real Bonneville as it was too small and modern. Well, after that, Triumph came out with the solution called the Bonneville T120, which is a classic interpretation of the Bonneville. A bike that looks properly retro with those wire-spoke wheels and comes with a simple but likable twin pot instrument cluster. The T120 looks more substantial than Street Twin, thanks to its larger fuel tank and increased wheel base. It’s also bigger than Street Twin in terms of engine capacity as the T120 is up by a good 300 cc.

The T120 comes with a 1200 cc, liquid-cooled, 8-valve, SOHC, 270-degree crank angle parallel twin engine that pops 79 bhp of power at 6550 rpm and 105 nm of torque at 3100 rpm. This high torque motor transmits its power through a 6-speed wet multi-plate assist clutch. Now, this 1200 cc motor offers a healthy dose of mid-range torque, which helps you in cruising at any speed, be it in the city or on the highway.
Triumph Bonneville T120 Black Mileage
At a price tag of approximately Rs. 10 L (On-road, Delhi), you get a 14.5 L fuel tank with a mileage of 22.61 kmpl, which means a riding a range of 327 km, which is great for an engine of this size.

Also, the best part is the twin-pot instrument cluster with Chromed 2x2 exhaust system with twin chrome silencers.
