Triumph Motorcycles has revealed its refreshed Bonneville 2021 line-up, debuting a host of styling and performance upgrades across the range of modern classics.
The enhanced range, which sees updates to the T120, T100, Street Twin, Speedmaster and Bobber, will hit local showrooms in Q2, while the new Scrambler models will launch later in the year.
Joining the Bonneville line-up for the first time is a new Street Twin Gold Line special edition, which will be limited to just 1000 units boasting a unique Matt Sapphire Black paint scheme with hand-painted gold accents.
Triumph has yet to confirm pricing for the new models, but for reference, the current base Street Twin is available from $15,890 rideaway, while the Thruxton RS tops the range at $25,390.
Like all the new models, the mainstay Bonneville T120 and its T120 Black sibling adopt changes to now meet Euro5 emissions requirements, yet also see improved performance thanks to a lighter crankshaft.
The 1200cc twin-cylinder engine develops 59kW and 105Nm, and Triumph says that an optimised clutch and balancer shafts has resulted in more immediate throttle response.
Handling should also be improved thanks to a seven kilogram weight saving with new lightweight aluminium wheels, while higher-spec Brembo brakes, enhanced rider modes and standard-fit cruise control round out the major changes.
The smaller Bonneville T100 has undergone similar updates, but it notably receives a 7kW boost to power compared to its predecessor.
More specifically, the T100’s 900cc twin-cylinder engine now develops 48kW and 80Nm, and new lightweight internal components contribute to an overall four kilogram weight reduction.
The T100 also sees enhanced Brembo brakes, as well as upgraded front forks and rider aid improvements.
Both the T120 and T100 see minor styling changes, with chrome finishes throughout and updates instrument faces.
The base Street Twin also adopts the improved 900cc engine of the T100, as well as gaining new cast wheels, a more comfortable bench seat, while the new Gold Line variant adds premium exterior details.
While the Bonneville Speedmaster cruiser shares much with the T120, its 1200cc engine features its own tune for higher torque low down in the rev range.
The Speedmaster’s new engine produces 57kW and 106Nm, and is backed up by a unique liquid-cooling system, stainless steel exhaust and two rider modes, Road and Rain.
Also new for the Speedmaster is higher-spec Showa front forks and preload adjustable monoshock, full LED lighting, an updated seat and refreshed instruments.
The Triumph Bonneville Bobber uses the same 57kW/106Nm 1200cc engine as the Speedmaster, but features its own ‘stripped-back’ styling and exterior details.
New for the Bobber in 2021 is a new 16-inch ‘fat’ front wheel, ‘chunkier’ forks, and a larger 12-litre fuel tank which is said to provide 33 per cent more range compared to its predecessor.
Triumph will reveal its new Scrambler 1200 XC and XE, as well as its new Street Scrambler in mid-April.
