33. TRIUMPH T100 BONNEVILLE
THE FACTS O 54bhp O 198kg (est) O Seat height 750mm (est)
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. HIGHLIGHTS Traction control and ABS 59ftlb torque at 3200rpm A2-licence restrictor kit
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.
