Inspired by the new wave custom scene, the Street Twin takes the Bonneville bloodline firmly into the 21st century, without losing any of its iconic character.

This is Triumph’s most contemporary new Bonneville; built to slot straight into today’s rider’s lifestyle. It’s built for fun, built to ride with a smile, and built for owners to customise.

Its combination of iconic Bonneville character, stunning looks, thrilling engine, low seat height, dynamic handling and ease of personalisation makes the Street Twin THE most accessible and desirable modern classic available today – the Bonneville for every rider.

New 900cc ‘high torque’ engine 
The unique character of the Street twin comes to life through the all-new 900cc ‘high torque’ 8 valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine.

As the name suggests, it delivers a massive peak torque figure of 80Nm at a low 3200 rpm, which is an amazing 18% more than the previous model, delivered where you want it – low down and across the whole rev range. Benefitting from the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection and engine management system, the Bonneville Street Twin is engineered with a charismatic 270° firing interval for an immaculately smooth, linear power delivery through the smooth five-speed gearbox.

The look of the new 900cc engine has also been beautifully crafted, with stylish black engine cases and a very high level of detailing. Incorporating contemporary engine components alongside signature features from the iconic Bonneville engine to enhance that authentic Bonneville silhouette.

The all-new upswept brushed stainless steel exhaust system of the Street Twin has been developed and tuned carefully to look great and deliver the unmistakable sound of a genuine British twin, with a rich, fruity note to match its lively character, tuned to a level you can feel as well as hear.

Significantly advanced fuel economy

Behind the new 900 engine’s stylish exterior sits a cutting-edge liquid cooling system, carefully integrated to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving cleaner emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency – an amazing 36% better than the previous generation Bonneville.

Dynamic Handling

The Street Twin’s fun, engaging and easy-going riding experience comes courtesy of an all-new chassis and suspension – designed to bring Triumph’s signature ride dynamic of neutrality and agility, and deliver refined and intuitive handling.

Combining a user-friendly low seat, more substantial seat foam, greater suspension travel, a more natural riding position, slim waist profile and fantastic ‘stand-over’ ergonomics, the Street Twin is our most accessible Bonneville ever.

Triumph Announces U.S. Pricing for New Bonneville Models

  • Pricing announced for new Street Twin, Bonneville T120, Bonneville T120 Black
  • New range launched in London and showcased at EICMA 2015
  • Range supported by over 470 stylish custom accessories and ready-made
    inspiration kits
  • Deposits now being taken at Triumph Dealerships

Following the October 2015 unveiling of the stunning new Bonneville range, Triumph Motorcycles has today announced the pricing of the new bikes at the global Street Twin press ride. The five new models – Street Twin, Bonneville T120, Bonneville T120 Black, Thruxton and Thruxton R – herald the next chapter in the iconic Bonneville story and have been the focus of global attention since being launched in London and then showcased for the first time at EICMA, Milan.

Heralded at launch as more powerful, more capable and more beautiful, all five new Bonneville models have been developed from the ground-up and are powered by a new range of three Bonneville engines – a 900cc High Torque variant in the Street Twin, a 1200cc High Torque variant in the Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T120 Black and a High Power ‘Thruxton spec’ version in the Thruxton and range-topping Thruxton R. These are the first Bonnevilles to feature ABS, ride-by-wire throttle, traction control, liquid cooling, and, on the 1200cc models, twin disc braking on the front and rider modes. The new bikes are accompanied by the introduction of a new range of over 470 parts and accessories, along with a selection of ready-made inspiration kits, designed to enable every rider to easily truly personalise their bike.

The Street Twin, which features the 900cc High Torque Bonneville engine, offers an entry into the new range, and is available in Jet Black for $8,700 and the remaining paint colors including Aluminum Silver, Cranberry Red, Matte Black and Phantom Black for $8,950.  The Street Twin is the perfect base for personalisation with over 150 dedicated accessories and three stunning inspiration kits that transform the Street Twin into a stripped back Brat Tracker, a Scrambler for the street or a city-inspired Street Twin Urban.

The iconic style and character of the original 1959 model is reborn in the authentically detailed Bonneville T120 and given a twist of contemporary cool in the Bonneville T120 Black. Both crafted to combine the capability and performance of a truly modern classic. The Bonneville T120 and T120 Black will be available in Jet Black for $11,500.  The Bonneville T120 also comes in Cinder Red for $11,750 plus Cranberry Red & Aluminum Silver and Jet Black & Pure White paint duotones priced at $12,000.  The Bonneville T120 Black model is offered in Matte Graphite for $11,750 as a second color option.
