At Intermot 2016, Triumph showcased a new addition to its product folio, the Bonneville T100, the design of which is inspired from the 1959 Bonneville. The T100 is powered by a 900 cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine, which produces 54 hp and 80 Nm of torque, and is mated to 5-speed transmission. In line with its classic design, the T100 gets a flat seat and a decently-sized 14.5 L fuel tank.
In terms of safety, the T100 motorcycle gets Ride-by-Wire, switchable traction control, ABS, torque assisted clutch and a USB charging socket. The motorcycle gets an LCD instrument panel, which features a gear indicator, odometer, service indicator, fuel consumption indicator, traction control setting and a clock. In addition to this, the company offers over 150 options for customisation on the T100. Riders can also opt for cruise control and heated grips on the T100.
Along with this, the manufacturer also showcased the Bonneville T100 ' Black' edition at the show. The Black edition T100 gets a blacked-out paint scheme for the engine cover, rims and matte-black colour at exhaust. In order to enhance the ride quality, Triumph claims to have worked on the chassis and suspension of the T100. Both the motorcycles are lighter in weight than T120 and also have a shorter wheelbase.
Bonneville T100 will be positioned below the T120 in Triumph's product portfolio and is expected to be launched in India next year.
