The bike Triumph Bonneville has a low wide stance with low positioned handle bar and headlight. The circular full size headlight of Bonneville has been surrounded by chrome which gives it a vintage look with pointed orange colored side indicators on both sides. The small telescopic forks and big front tyre gives macho look to this bike. Its multi-spoke rims and chrome finished front fender makes it looks catchy. The number plate sits on the top of this fender which takes you back in time. Move to the side of this bike and the heavy usage of chrome continues. Its sleek silencer and engine has been garnished with chrome while the dated yet attractive fuel tank sits on the top of it.
Triumph Bonneville has a naked instrument console which comes with silver finishing. It's a completely analogue instrument console with twin posh circular dials. The left dial houses an analogue speedometer, odometer and trip meter while its right dial houses its analogue tachometer. The bike lacks fuel gauge but features other essential indicators just below these dials. The Indian version of Bonneville will be powered by an air-cooled, parallel twin 865cc engine. The power and torque production of this DOHC engine is almost same. It produces a peak power and torque output of 60 bhp @ 7500rpm and 68 Nm @ 5550rpm. This engine is mated with a five-speed manual gearbox which will have one gear down and four gears up-shit pattern.
The bike Triumph Bonneville is yet to be tested on Indian roads so you will have to wait to know its accurate fuel economy but yes, anything around 20km/ltr is quite acceptable. The lockable side panels of Bonneville offer some storage space. Apart from its powerful headlight, there is no major safety feature in this bike. Triumph Bonneville has a long wheelbase of 1490mm which makes it really stable on highways. Its ground clearance of 140mm helps you to turn this bike at slow speeds. The suspension system feels on the softer side and that's quite evident when you hit sharp corners. The handling of this bike is quite easy, one can easily steer this bike with proper control. The ride quality of this bike also improves thanks to its braking system which gives you sense of control on this bike. We wish if it had a wider rear tyre as the bike loses grip in wet conditions. Apart from this, there is nothing much to criticize about its ride and handling.
Triumph Bonneville is avaliable Phantom Black, Lunar Silver. This Triumph Bonneville motorcycle competes Harley Davidson Super Low, Harley Davidson Forty Eight and Ducati Monster 795.
