Triumph India has expanded its Bonneville lineup today with its new motorcycle, the Triumph Bonneville T100. The new Bonneville is the most affordable Bonnie with the price tag of 7.78 lakh, and it will replace the existing T100 and is based on the Triumph Street Twin.
This time the new Bonneville has also got a black body paint job which has been inspired from the 1959 Bonneville. The last generation Bonneville was the largest selling motorcycle from Triumph in India. Although Triumph launched the Street Twin earlier this year, which is the entry-level Bonnie, there was no 'classic' Bonneville in the entry-level segment, so to fill up the gap, Triumph has launched the all new T100.
The all new Bonnie gets a new engine, which is a 900 cc parallel-twin cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that churns out 54 HP of power and 80Nm of torque, the engine is further mated to a five-speed transmission for brilliant performance. According to Triumph, the all new T100 delivers 22 percent more power in the mid-range and 18 percent more torque as compared to the previous generation T100. The new motorcycle comes loaded with useful features such as switchable Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), ride-by-wire, engine immobiliser, torque-assist clutch for easy clutch operations, stylish twin pod instrument cluster and USB charging port under the seat.
The twin-pod instrument cluster provides retro design touch to the motorcycle. The instrument cluster additionally shows gear level information, distance to empty, fuel level and average mileage.
The all new T100 is lighter than the previous generation and the wheelbase is also shorter. The motorcycle also has a low seat height which can easily accommodate riders with low height as well. For handling, the bike comes equipped with Pirelli Phantom tyres. The tyres are specially designed by Pirelli for the Bonneville family of bikes.
At this point of time, Triumph holds second place in terms of sales, which is just behind Harley-Davidson in the superbike segment in India. Triumph now targets to have a growth of 25%, and the all new Bonnie is expected to be the major contributor.
