Triumph Bonneville T100 and T120 Black Edition to be launched in June
In a conversation with OVERDRIVE, Shoeb Farooq, general manager at Triumph Motorcycles India mentioned that the company will launch the Bonneville T100 and T120 black editions in June. The black edition replaces chrome elements on the standard versions with blacked-out components and these include the engine, mirrors, indicators, exhaust and the wheels.
The black editions are powered by the same engine on the standard bikes, there is no change of output on these new bikes. The Bonneville T100 is powered by a 900cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox that makes 55PS of power and 77 Nm of torque. And the Bonneville T120 gets a 1,200cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected engine coupled with a 6-speed gearbox that pushes 80PS of power and pulls 105 Nm of torque.
The bikes maintain their classic look, but they do not miss out on the modern-day toys. Both bikes get ride-by-wire, switchable traction control, torque-assist clutch and dual-channel ABS. The T120 gets heated grips, DRL headlights and two riding modes - Road and Rain.
The standard Bonneville T100 is priced at Rs 8.87 lakh and the T120 costs Rs 9.97 lakh, the black editions will be priced closer to the standard bikes. Triumph has recently launched the Street Triple RS and has announced the launch of the Street Triple R as well. People are also excited about the Tiger 900 and the news of two more Bonnevilles only makes things interesting for the Modern Classic range. The launch of these bikes still depends on how the situation evolves over time.
Triumph has also deferred its BSVI price on the Indian fleet considering the present situation caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Currently, the Triumph BSVI models include the Street Triple RS, Rocket III, Bonneville T120, Bonneville T100, Speed Twin and the Speedmaster.
