Triumph Motorcycles is celebrating 61 years of Bonneville Modern Classic range of motorcycles this year. The legacy behind ‘Bonneville’ started in 1955 when Triumph set the land speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. This record stood for 15 years. The first of the modern classic Bonnie range that we know of today was introduced in 1959. The Bonneville T120 remains one of the most popular motorcycles in Triumph’s portfolio. To celebrate its 61st anniversary, Triumph Motorcycles India is offering free accessories worth Rs 61,000 on the purchase of any its four Bonnevilles – Street Twin, Speedmaster, T100 and T120.
Furthermore, the Bonneville range is now available at a starting monthly EMI of Rs 9,999 only. The offer is valid for a limited period across all Triumph dealerships in the country.
Modern Classics continue to be an important part of Triumphs product offering in India along with strong representation across Adventure, Roadster and Cruiser segments. With the 61 years of Bonneville celebration we hope to nudge our customers and give them another reason to bring home their dream Bonneville, Shoeb Farooq, Business Head, Triumph Motorcycles India said.

Over the years, Triumph Motorcycles have expanded its range of Bonneville motorcycles and offered different Bonneville models in the following segments – roadsters, café racers, bobbers, and cruisers.
