British motorcycle manufacture Triumph has unveiled a few of its updated products at the Intermot show that will be held till the 9th of October. The Hinckley based motorcycle maker announced a new range of models including the Street Cup and the Bonneville twins. In this article, we’ll be talking about the new members of the Bonnie range, the T100 and the T100 Black.
Powered by an all new Euro 4 compliant 900cc liquid cooled parallel-twin engine, the models are lighter than the T120’s and can be customized with the help of as many as 150 accessories. Also available as an option is the cruise control feature as well as heated grips for the said models.
Aesthetically, the new T100 range has been inspired by legendary ’59 Bonneville and flows with the conventional retro theme as seen in the Bonnies. The T100 features a chrome finish for the brushed aluminium covers, bolt on badges, mirrors, mudguards, handlebars and the headlight bezel. The T100 Black, on the other hand, comes equipped with features such as blacked out wheel rims and engine cover while the twin skin peashooter exhaust receives a matte black finish.

The new Bonneville T100 range includes a long suspension unit for the rear and cartridge forks suspension upfront which, according to Triumph, will offer a better riding experience. The new T100 twins are now lighter, have a shorter wheelbase, rake and trail as compared to the outgoing model. This combination mated to a low seat height makes the journey more comfortable for the rider. Both the models come with Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres, designed especially for the Bonnie family.
The engine of the Bonneville T100 range has been tuned to comply with the Euro 4 emission norms and now produces the peak torque of 80 Nm at 3200 rpm, which is said to be an 18% increase over the outgoing model.
