TRIUMPH UNVEILS A CLASSIC LINE-UP FOR 2014

Triumph, the UK’s top selling brand of +500cc motorcycles, has gone ‘back to the future’ with its Bonnevilles, Thruxton and Scrambler models, by developing eye-catching new colour schemes, improved tonal characteristics and an even better riding experience, for its legendary classics range. The Hinckley-based manufacturer has given its iconic bikes a refreshing update, improving the looks and sound of these modern classics.

Bonneville – sleek and chic

The 17” cast front wheeled Triumph Bonneville sports the lowest seat height in Triumph’s classics range at just 740mm. The easy riding ergonomics assert the bike’s credentials as an ideal city bike thanks to its fusion of effortless manoeuvrability and retro good looks.

With an ever growing following among young, discerning riders, the Bonneville fuses style and substance, with its distinctive 865cc twin engine giving more than enough power on both urban and open roads. The new bike also boasts redesigned silencers, providing an even more satisfying sound.

Visually, the classic Bonneville’s fuel tank decal is upgraded to a distinctive badge, while the model now comes in Phantom Black, Lunar Silver or Crystal White/Sapphire Blue. The engine barrel block and cylinder head features new machined cooling fin detail to accentuate the classic British twin engine, while the oil cooler lines are minimised through the use of a solid black treatment.

The Bonneville’s new seat design consists of twin contrasting vinyl and an improved filler material for even better comfort. A black grab rail is also fitted as standard on the updated bike.

Bonneville T100 – authentic tribute to a golden age

With a nod to its sixties heritage, the new T100 has a new Crystal White and Aurum Gold paint scheme, inspired by the 1964 Bonneville, with the stylised colour split continuing across the front and rear mudguards.

Like the Bonneville, the T100 also gets the throaty exhaust treatment with an improved aural delivery alongside the same machined detailing on the cylinder head cooling fins.  A chrome grab rail and chain guard as standard add a classy finishing touch.

In addition to the 1964 inspired gold and white paint scheme, the new Bonneville T100 continues to be available in Jet Black/Cranberry Red.

For a mean and moody look, Triumph also offers the T100 in a striking black colour scheme, which is made even more distinctive with the addition of black-finished wheel rims, hubs, handlebars, RSU springs, mudguard stays, mirrors and grab rail. The new bike also enjoys a more compelling voice, thanks to its revised silencer, while the machined detail on the cooling fins is offset beautifully by the black engine finish.

Naturally there’s just one colour choice – Jet Black.

The 2014 Triumph Thruxton

Thruxton – retro racing style

Inspired by the café racers of the 60’s, Triumph’s utterly unique Thruxton oozes retro racing style.

Powered by Triumph’s unmistakable 865cc, twin cylinder engine and sporting aluminium rims, an enthusiasts riding position and adjustable rear suspension, the Thruxton benefits from some discrete refinements for Model Year 2014, including revised megaphone silencers for an even more liberated sound.

The latest specification bike also gains the same machined details on the cylinder head cooling fins and black oil cooler lines as the Bonneville, alongside a chrome chain guard. A colour-matched fly screen, with centre stripe detail, joins the seat cowl as standard equipment.

Available in Phantom Black and Brooklands Green.

The Scrambler – classic updates

As with other models in the classics range, the Scrambler gets the ‘back to black’ treatment on the oil cooler lines, handlebars, wheel rims and hubs, plus the rear master cylinder reservoir cover. A new seat design adds to the relaxed attitude. Additional finishing touches include a clear anodised bash plate and Triumph embossed logo on the rear of the seat.

Two brand new colour schemes are available – a stunning Matt Pacific Blue and a striking Lunar Silver/Diablo Red combination.

All the new models will be available in UK dealerships from 1 September 2013.   Prices start at £6,549 OTR for the Bonneville and £7,349 OTR for the T100, Thruxton and Scrambler.  The T100 Black retails for £7,149 otr.
