Expanding the Triumph range in India, the British company launched an all-new Bonneville T100 in India. The neo-retro designed motorcycle was launched at a price of Rs. 7.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Triumph is on an aggressive expansion drive in India following the good response from the market.
The Bonneville is a legendary name and the T100 continues to take it forward with the design inspired from the 1959 Bonneville. The motorcycle has been designed to bring out the impeccable silhouette of the legendary motorcycle along with premium design characteristics of its own.
The motorcycle gets many features from the T120. To start with there is a beautifully sculpted 14.5-litre engine tank. The engine plate has been given extreme details to show the iconic status of the motorcycle. There are deep chrome mirrors, mudguard stays, handlebar LED lights, LED tail lamps. There are three colour options, Aegean Blue and Fusion White with hand painted coach lines, Intense Orange and New England White with hand painted coach lines and Jet Black.
The motorcycles completes the looks with twin-pod analogue-digital information console, which has wide range of features. The feature list includes tachometer, speedometer, gear shift indicator, gear position indicator, service due indicator, fuel gauge, trip meters, distance to empty and much more.
The timeless design of the motorcycle is aided by modern features like ride-by-wire technology, torque assist clutch, ABS, Switchable Traction Control, Engine Immobiliser, USB Charging Socket.
The T100 is powered by an all-new 900cc, high-torque, parallel twin engine that offers more torque, better fuel economy and a deeper exhaust note. The engine is specifically tuned to achieve higher torque at lower rpm. The engine produces a maximum of 55 PS at 5,900 rpm and 80 Nm of maximum torque, which is 18% higher than the outgoing model. The liquid-cooled engine gets an all-new 5-speed gearbox. The motorcycle gets an extended service interval of 16,000 km, that reduces the cost of ownership by a huge chunk.
