The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Range has been launched in India at a starting price of Rs 7.95 lakh for the Bonneville Street Twin. Prices go all the way up to Rs 11.75 lakh for the Bonneville Speedmaster. The updated Triumph Bonneville range includes the Street Twin, Street Twin Gold Line, T100, T120, T120 Black, and Speedmaster.
The Triumph Bonneville debuted back in 1959, named after the famed Bonneville salt flats where land speed records are created. The Model was discontinued in 1983 for a couple of years and relaunched in 1985. After three more years, Triumph discontinued the Bonneville in 1988.
The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin looks very similar to the outgoing model. An eye for detail though, will notice that there are quite a few changes in terms of the design and styling. It gets new decals on the fuel tank, new 10-spoke cast alloy wheels, aluminium headlamp brackets, new throttle body covers, and a redesigned ribbed seat with more foam.
The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin is powered by the same air and oil-cooled, 900cc, parallel-twin engine. It has a maximum power output of 64.1bhp at 7,500rpm and a peak torque output of 80Nm at 3,800rpm and is now Euro 5 / BS6 emissions norms compliant. A five-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel.
The Triumph Bonneville Street Twin rides on a telescopic fork up front and twin shocks at the rear. Single disc brakes at both ends of the motorcycle handle braking duties. The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin is priced at Rs 7.95 lakh (ex-showroom), which is Rs 50,000 higher than the older model’s price.
The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin Gold Line is a limited edition model based on the Street Twin. It retains the design and mechanicals of the Triumph Street Twin. The difference lies in the styling.
It gets a Matte Blac paint job with decals finished in an attractive shade of Gold. The pinstripes on the tank are hand-finished. The 10-spoke alloy wheels too get a Gold-coloured outline. Only 1,000 units of the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Street Twin GoldLine will be made worldwide. It is priced at Rs 8,25,000 (ex-showroom).
The 2021 Triumph Bonneville T100 retains the design language of the outgoing model but gets a few updates in the styling department. The motorcycle gets few Chrome parts when compared to the older version. The cam covers engine cases, sprocket guard, exhaust system are all now Black in colour.
The updates to the T100 are more than just skin-deep. It gets a redesigned instrument cluster and an updated engine as well. The 2021 Triumph Bonneville T100 is powered by the same air and oil-cooled, 900cc, high-torque engine as the outgoing model.
The Bonneville family makes up most of the sales for Triumph. Of the models launched, the Street Twin will be the bestseller, again. Triumph, however, has not launched the Thruxton and Bobber, this could be due to negligible sales numbers. Bookings are now open at all Triumph dealerships across the country. Deliveries are expected to begin soon.
