Triumph’s Unadulterated Bonneville: The 2021 Triumph Bonneville T100
The Bonneville T100 is arguably the most famous British motorcycle on the market. It’s the closest thing to the original Bonneville available in the 2021 Triumph line-up, taking inspiration directly from the 1959 model. Today, the Bonneville lives on as a range of Triumph motorcycles, but the unadulterated T100 is the model that most closely resembles the original.
The 2021 T100 is built around Triumph’s powerful 900 cc liquid-cooled, 8-valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine. Sports performance isn’t the driving force behind this high-torque engine. Instead, it has been developed for practical cruising and well-rounded versatility. The engine produces 55 horsepower and 59 lb-ft of peak torque.
While the T100’s retro aesthetic is its biggest draw, it also features a shopping list of impressive features. The best of these include Ride-by-Wire, ABS, a torque-assist clutch, sophisticated and stylish instrumentation, and modern practicalities such as an immobilizer and USB charging port.
For 2021, the Bonneville T100 is available in three color options: Fusion White and Aegean Blue with hand-painted coach lines, New England White and Intense Orange with hand-painted coach line, and Jet Black. An additional model, the Triumph Bonneville T100 Black is available with a blacked-out aesthetic.
The 2021 Triumph Bonneville T100 starts from $10,450 USD / $11,350 CAD.
