Triumph Motorcycles India puts the all new Bonneville T100 on sale in the country. Powered by a 900cc parallel-twin engine, the new T100 sits in between the Street Twin and T120.
Only a few days ago, Triumph announced the revival of the Bonneville T100 at the 2016 Intermot in Cologne, Germany. And now, today, the British motorcycle maker has launched the new T100 in the Indian market at Rs 7.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The T100 slots in between the Street Twin and T120.
The Bonneville T100 was discontinued from the Indian market after the arrival of the T120 earlier this year. The motive behind bringing the T100 back now is to make the Bonneville more affordable than before. And as a consequence, the new T100 comes with the same classic 1959 Bonneville design like the T120 but is fitted with the Street Twin’s liquid-cooled 900cc parallel-twin engine, and not the 1200cc engine that propels the T120. The engine develops 54bhp @ 5,900rpm along with a peak torque of 80Nm @ 3,230rpm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel via a 5-speed gearbox. Compared to the T120, the T100 is claimed to be lighter and it has also has shorter wheelbase, rake and trail.
Among other highlights, the new T100 gets ride-by-wire throttle, ABS, selectable traction control, USB port, LED tail-light and a lot more. Triumph is also offering as many as 150 optional accessories with the motorcycle including cruise control, heated grips, etc. Three paint options are available on the bike, namely, Aegean Blue/Fusion White, Intense Orange/New England White and Jet Black.
The Bonneville is unarguably the British brand’s most famous range of motorcycles around the world. The addition of the T100 in the line-up makes the Bonneville a four model strong range in India after the Street Twin, T120 and Thruxton R. What we’d really love to see now is the addition of the the stunning Street Cup café racer to the range. We hope Triumph is listening…
