Triumph Announces 110th Anniversary Model

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

To commemorate their 110th anniversary, Triumph has introduced the 2012 Bonneville T100 110th Anniversary Edition.

The machines, with a numbered plaque on the upper triple clamp and certificate of authenticity, feature a khaki green and silver livery reminiscent of early Triumph models. Other special features include a reinterpretation of the original Triumph crest on the bike’s side covers, as well as a chromed chain guard, cam cover and grab rail.

Mechanically, the Anniversary Edition is identical to the standard-issue Bonneville T100. The fuel-injected 865cc dual overhead cam parallel twin delivers a claimed 67 hp through a five-speed transmission. Suspension is 41mm forks up front and twin coil-over shocks out back.

Triumph has been building motorcycles since 1902, although a rocky period in the early 1980s saw shockingly low production numbers. John Bloor rescued the company from receivership in 1983 and has revitalized the famous marque. 

Only 1,000 Bonneville T100 110th Anniversary Edition models will be built worldwide, with 25 allotted for Canada. Price for the 110th Anniversary Edition is set at $10,999, with availability beginning in May.
