Triumph has expanded their new range in India with the launch of Bonneville T100 at Rs. 7.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The new offering from Triumph was unveiled recently at the Intermot 2016 motorcycle expo. Bonneville T100 will be a trim between the Bonneville T120 and Street Twin in India.
This affordable motorcycle from the British manufacturer shares few styling cues with the Triumph Thruxton R without losing the legacy of vintage Bonneville. The vehicle includes the features like the analogue speedometer and an analog tachometer besides many other indicators. The modern features of the multi-functional instrument cluster assure a feel of Modern Classic tag.
Bonneville T100 comes equipped with the electronic ride-by-wire throttle technology along with traction control, torque-assist clutch and standard ABS which the previous generation didn’t have. The new chassis and suspension setup promise a good and comfortable ride quality even in daily use. Bonneville exclusive Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres assist for the T100 wheels.
New Bonneville T100 borrows the 900cc parallel-twin engine from Street Twin which makes a power of 54bhp at 5,900rpm and 80Nm peak torque at 3,230rpm.
“India is a large and growing market for classic motorcycles. With our range of new, exciting and accessible modern classics like the all new Triumph Bonneville T100, we would further strengthen our market position in the above 500cc, plus 5 lakh segment in India,” says, Vimal Sumbly, managing director, Triumph Motorcycles India.
The new Triumph Bonneville T100 is available in three colors, Intense Orange & New England White, Aegean Blue & Fusion White, and Jet Black. Triumph is also offering 150 official accessories to customize the motorcycle as per the owner’s individual requirements. The range of accessories includes leather seats, Vance & Hines slip-on silencers, compact LED indicators, and chrome clutch and alternator embellishers.
The previous generation Bonneville recorded as the largest selling Triumph in India. Triumph India sold over 3,000 motorcycles in the last economic year holding second place in sales behind the Harley-Davidson in superbike market. The company expects a growth of 25 percent in the next fiscal, and new Bonneville T100 is considered as the sale booster.
