2021 Motorcycle Previews 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 First Look (9 Fast Facts)

2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 First Look (9 Fast Facts)

The Triumph Bonneville T100 gets a more powerful and higher-revving motor for 2022,  along with a lighter chassis and upgraded suspension as the British company skips right past ’21. Plus, the 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 gets a bit some styling changes. Here’s what you need to know.

1. The 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 motor is upgraded to the same spec as the Street Twin, so it is now more of a revver. The T100 gets a 10-horsepower bump, and it now tops out at 64 horsepower at 7400 rpm. Peak torque remains unchanged at 59 ft-lbs, though the 900cc vertical twin has to spin up another 520 rpm to get there. The redline is increased by 500 rpm thanks to new porting, valve springs, cam-chain tensioner, and cam profile.

2. Triumph has made the 900HT motor more responsive by cutting weight internally. The crankshaft, clutch, balance shafts, cam cover, and clutch covers have all gone on a diet—over six pounds has been shed. Although the new motor puts out a bit less horsepower and torque below 3500 rpm than the edition it replaced, the increased responsiveness should pick up the slack. Above 3500 rpm, the new motor is dominant.

3. With more speed comes additional braking power. A Brembo caliper is now found on the left fork leg of the 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100.

4. Handling is improved thanks to an overall weight loss of nearly nine pounds.

5. New KYB cartridge forks are fitted to the 2022 T100.

6. The dual clocks have new faces. The analog-style gauges also include small LCD screens to provide additional information.

7. The new T100 goes black. The engine covers, cam cover, and sprocket cover all get black powdercoating. An all-black exhaust system is optional.

8. The Bonneville T100 Black is gone, while the T100 gets three color options. With the blacked-out motor, the Jet Black color option takes care of those who want a darkly styled motorcycle. For those who prefer color, there is a Carnival Red & Fusion White pairing, along with Lucerne Blue & Fusion White. The two-toned versions include hand-painted pinstriping in Aluminum Silver.

9. The 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 will be available at dealers in March. We don’t have prices yet.
