In addition to a special Ace Cafe-themed edition Bonneville, Triumph announced a limited production Diamond Edition to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the original Bonneville T120.

Every Triumph Bonneville produced traces back to the first model, introduced in 1959. The original model was the final motorcycle designed by Edward Turner during his tenure as Triumph’s chief designer. The bike got its name from the iconic Bonneville Salt Flats, home to many land speed records.

The 2019 Triumph Bonneville T120 Diamond Edition comes with an exclusive white and silver tank design with a Union Jack motif.

The Diamond edition also features chrome four-bar Triumph tank badges, chrome engine covers and a chrome chain guard.

Only 900 units will be produced worldwide, each with a numbered certificate signed by Nick Bloor, Triumph chief executive officer.

    I own a 2005 Bonneville, which was bought from a customer who was too old to ride it. It’s an OK bike, but I really don’t get all the hype. My Bonne has less than 900 miles on it and I’m probably going to sell it. I thought I might like it before I purchased it but it’s not very inspiring to ride. Honestly, I like my Rebel 500 more, and I’m not all that crazy about the Rebel. I’ll probably sell them both and get either the CB1000R or the Indian 1200FTR.

    It's a nice looking bike; I had a 1970 Bonnie for around 25 years; That was ,in my opinion, the the best looking Triumph made. I currently ride a 2001 Bonneville which
    is (for me) a nice blend of old and new: no tools needed (usually ) to get back home.
    This new one is nice but needs a smaller tank (from their Bobber model) to look correct.
    The tank on it looks like someone over inflated it( again my opinion).
