The new T100 Bon­neville of­fers retro fans a di­rect re­place­ment for the old model. It uses the Street Twin’s 900cc en­gine, with styling in­spired by the 1959 Bon­neville. Com­pare the new T100 with the out­go­ing model and you’re struck by how much cleaner and sim­pler the new bike is. From the sculpted 14.5-litre fuel tank to the de­tailed Bon­neville en­gine plate and stylish twin clocks, this new T100 sets a new stan­dard for qual­ity in the class.

Con­trary to its retro looks, the new Bon­nie boasts a ride-by-wire throt­tle, ABS, trac­tion con­trol, a Torque As­sist Clutch for a lighter lever ac­tion, a Thatcham-ap­proved im­mo­biliser built into the key and a handy USB charg­ing socket hid­den away un­der the seat. And it rides beau­ti­fully, too.
