Tri­umph’s new Bon­nie spe­cials

O ‘Ace’ and ‘60th’ re­vealed

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Tri­umph’s big­gest-sell­ing Thrux­ton spe­cial edi­tion ever was the ‘Ace’, so it’s no great sur­prise the British mar­que have rekin­dled their re­la­tion­ship with the Lon­don café to cre­ate a spe­cial edi­tion T120 Bon­neville for 2019 bear­ing its name and badg­ing.

The Bon­neville T120 Ace is dis­tin­guished by its mean and moody Storm Grey paintjob and the com­pre­hen­sive ‘black­ness’ of its four-bar tank badges, wheel rims, in­take cov­ers, en­gine cases and even ex­hausts. So much so that it’s a rolling, mat­ter-ab­sorb­ing, black hole. It wouldn’t be com­plete without some brand­ing, though – which comes in the form of the Ace Cafe side cover de­cals, and one on the tank that says ‘Head down, Hold on’. 1400 will be built, all ac­com­pa­nied by a cer­tifi­cate of au­then­tic­ity from Tri­umph and the Ace.

The Ace will be joined in 2019 by a 60th an­niver­sary spe­cial Bon­neville ‘Di­a­mond Edi­tion’. Just like the Ace, it’s a com­pletely stock T120 which has been dressed dif­fer­ently with a one-off white and sil­ver union flag paintjob and chrome four-bar tank badge, en­gine cov­ers, chain guard, rims, grab rail, ex­hausts and badg­ing. 900 will be built, again ac­com­pa­nied by a cer­tifi­cate of au­then­tic­ity singed by Tri­umph CEO, Nick Bloor.

Prices aren’t con­firmed, but we be­lieve both will be sub-£11,000.

‘Di­a­mond Edi­tion’ is be­ing built to mark the 60th an­niver­sary of the Bon­neville
