Triumph Motorcycle Wallpaper

Named after the historic Bonneville Salt Flats where Triumph broke numerous land speed records in the 1950s, the Bonneville is for many people the most iconic Triumph of all time.

Originally introduced in 1959, the Bonneville was the sporting bike of the day and the bike to beat in production-based racing through to the 1970s.

Today’s Bonneville takes the style and spirit of those famous bikes and blends in thoroughly modern engineering to create a classic British twin for the 21st century rider.

The air-cooled 865cc power plant is a modern design but styled to look like an authentic parallel-twin of the 1960s, right down to the “carburetors” that hide the modern fuel injectors.

Beneath the retro looks lies a very modern and usable motorcycle that appeals to new and experienced motorcyclists alike. Press the electric starter and today’s Bonneville instantly comes to life with the distinctive tone that only a parallel twin can deliver. A healthy 67bhp and 50ft.lbs. of torque give the modern day Bonneville peppy performance that is at home both in the city and on the open road.

With its traditional wire wheels and coach-lined two-tone paintwork, the Bonneville T100 looks like it could have been built in 1969. But look closer and you will see a modern machine dripping with authentic touches only Triumph can deliver.
