Triumph’s new generation of Bonneville models gets expanded to four with the introduction of the T100 Bonneville, and we were one of the first publications on the planet to take it for a spin.

2017 Triumph Bonneville T100 First Ride Review

Full details of the T100 can be seen in the link directly above, but the condensed version is that it uses the Street Twin’s 900cc parallel-Twin engine in the T120 Bonneville chassis, splitting the difference in cost with an MSRP that begins at $10,300, a $1,200 saving over the nearly identical T120. The two-tone version seen in this video retails for $10,800.

    The 68 bhp and 54 bhp are both Triumphs official

    Okay, now I have to pile on for the video production. I lot of us MOronic readers have noticed the increased video quality recently. The drone footage, the blending of spoken narrative, music, and motorcycle sounds, it's all well done and very enjoyable[1].
    But this vid adds some great shots of Hell A. You MOrons made a good effort to get varied and interesting settings. The closing drone sequence is fantastic!

    [1] I thought the music dubbed in at about 50 seconds into the vid was not exactly appropriate. On the one hand, I give you credit for thinking beyond the tired old "Born to Be Wild" sound track. On the other hand, that techno-electric stuff is not the best choice for a Bonneville.

      Thanks for the kudos - we really try! Yeah, the music wasn't quite to my taste, but then I'm old and so are you. :) Maybe the kids'll like it.
