Take a Bonneville. Spec up. Enjoy. 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 thanks to its modern specification, low seat, fuel-injected 865cc engine and lightweight 17 inch alloys for even sharper handling. SE adds that little bit more: matching tacho and speedo, polished engine covers and traditional chrome tank badge. Optional two tone paint scheme with hand painted pinstripe.
The Bonneville SE takes all the qualities of the standard Bonneville and adds a higher specification for the more discerning rider.
Polished aluminium engine covers and chromed tank badges give the Bonneville SE that premium look while the addition of a tachometer lets the rider match perfectly the engine speed to gear selection. There’s also the choice of traditional two-tone paintwork options with a hand painted pinstriping, for riders who want maximum retro from their steed.
Otherwise the Bonneville SE retains all that is good about the standard model, with its 17” alloy wheels, megaphone silencers, short mudguards and low seat for maximum accessibility and minimum fuss.

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.
