Triumph have undertaken a major revision of the entire Bonneville line-up with engine updates to help meet Euro5 emissions legislation and a 20 per cent power boost thrown in to the bargain for the 900 cc machines.
Power jumps from 54 to 64 horsepower. That peak power arrives at 7400 rpm, 1500 rpm higher than before, while the unchanged torque figure of 80 Nm peaks at 3750 rpm, 550 rpm higher than before.80 per cent of the peak torque is available from as low as 2000 rpm.
The red-line is increased by 500 rpm in what should prove a much more willing performer than before with lower inertia throughout the engine with a lighter crank and balancer shafts. Helping save weight is a thinner clutch cover and new magnesium cam cover.
The improvements don’t stop there with new cartridge forks and a higher specification Brembo brake for the T100 models. The T100 is also 4 kg lighter than before and now has riding modes.
All Triumph motorcycles feature 16,000 km service intervals and the 2021 Bonneville range is expected to start arriving in Australia from the second quarter of 2021. Pricing is yet to be announced.
