Triumph take a gaint leap sideways
 
Hmmm, let's compare specs with the original Bonneville, circa 1967. Here day bee:



1967 Triumph Bonneville T-120:
Engine Four-stroke Parallel-twin
Power 46 bhp @ 6,500 rpm (T120)
Transmission 4-speed
Weight 395 lb

New bike:

2007 Triumph Bonneville
Parallel twin
DOHC 8 Valve
Power 54 HP @ ?
Transmission 5 speed
Weight: 497 lbs.

Seems they picked up 100 lbs in 40 or so years, with only an 8 hp increase in power. I'll take the original, thank you...

Good use of facts and data. Sorry couldn't help it... Who said they were studying to be the next GMP?

Great juxtaposition.

Why compare the America cruiser with the 67 Bonnie? At least go to the new standard Bonneville, 68 HP and 440 pounds. Versus 46 HP and 395 pounds for the 67. The new Bonnie has a much better HP to weight ratio.
