2012 Triumph Bonneville Review

The Bonneville. Say no more.

The most famous name in motorcycling. A legend. Over 50 years of engineering excellence. A thoroughly modern interpretation of the authentic 'proper' motorcycle. This iconic symbol of rebellion and independence is even more appealing now thanks to its modern specification, low seat, clean fuel-injected 865cc engine and lightweight 17 inch alloys for even sharper handling. Stirs the heart, not the wallet.

The name and look may be traditional, but don’t for one second think that the Bonneville is old-fashioned.

At the heart is a modern 865cc parallel-twin engine that’s fuel-injected for easy starting, sweet running and compliance to even the strictest modern emissions regulations. You’ll have to look twice though, as traditional carburettor bodies are used to disguise the throttle bodies.
Keeping it all in check is a modern chassis that provides sweet handling and stunning agility, thanks in no small part to those 17” alloy wheels, while the low seat height makes the Bonneville manageable and unintimidating for riders of all ages and experience.

A wide range of accessories are also available for the Bonneville, allowing riders to personalise the Bonneville to meet their specific needs.


- Modern interpretation of classic British parallel-twin
- Low seat height for accessible and manageable ride
- Cast alloy wheels contribute to agile handling and authentic 70s look
- SE version offers higher specification and two-tone paint option
- Two year unlimited mileage warranty as standard

Named after the venue where Triumph broke numerous land speed records in the 1950s, the Bonneville is, for many people, the most iconic Triumph of all time. Originally introduced in 1959, the Bonneville was the sporting bike of the day and the bike to beat in production-based racing right through to the 1970s. Today’s Bonneville takes the style and spirit of those famous bikes of the 1970s and blends in thoroughly modern engineering to create a classic British twin for the 21st century rider.

The air-cooled 865cc power plant is a modern design but styled to look like aauthentic parallel-twin of the 1960s, right down to the dummy pushrods and ‘carburettors’ that hide the modern fuel injectors. But beneath the retro looks lies a very current and usable motorcycle that appeals to new and experienced motorcyclists alike. Thumb the electric starter and today’s Bonneville comes to life instantly and with the distinctive tone that only a parallel twin can deliver. A healthy 68PS and 68Nm of torque give the modern day Bonneville peppy performance that is at home both in the city and on the open road.

Lightweight 17” cast alloy wheels make the Bonneville agile and easy to ride, while the low 740mm seat height makes the accessible to motorcyclists of all ages and experience. Short mudguards and stylish chrome megaphone silencers complete the 1970s look.

The higher specification Bonneville SE adds a tachometer, chromed tank badge and brushed alloy engine cases for added practicality and even more classic look.

Colour options reflect the traditional styling of the Bonneville. The standard model comes with metallic paint as standard for 2012, with Phantom Black and Aurum Gold options, while the Bonneville SE is available in Phantom Black or two dual colour alternatives: Intense Orange with Phantom Black or Pacific Blue with Fusion White, the two-tone options featuring hand painted coachlines.

A wide range of official Triumph accessories are also available for the Bonneville range, including alternative seats, practical screens and leather panniers.
