2009 Triumph Bonneville: A bit of history

In the first half of the 50s, Triumph was breaking every speed record in the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, and at the end of that same decade the British manufacturer named their new motorcycle after that place.

The Bonneville was a great success and was manufactured in three generations, the second being in the 70s with great popularity and later in the 2000s. It’s been 50 years since the first time we saw a Bonneville and this motorcycle is still taking the industry by storm.

Almost every year we see new updates on these classic models, we’ve highlighted the main characteristics of the 2009 Triumph Bonneville models.

2009 Triumph Bonneville: Minimalistic silhouette

This motorcycle has an 865cc parallel twin engine and what at first sight looks like old-fashioned carburetors but is actually a fuel injection system cleverly hidden to maintain the classic style.

The 2009 Triumph Bonneville sticks to the look and style of the first model that came out 50 years before. Available in Jet Black or Fusion White, it has a minimalistic silhouette that carries all its heritage.

2009 Triumph Bonneville: Bonneville T100

The 2009 Triumph Bonneville T100 is a model that is clearly inspired by the motorcycles from the 60s, with an incredible performance given by the 865cc parallel twin engine. Compared to the other two models, the T100 may require more of a heavy steering with added weight and the 19 in front wheel.

With chrome elements, like the engine cases, and a two-tone design on the fuel tank, this motorcycle is classic and elegant.

2009 Triumph Bonneville: Bonneville SE

The 2009 Triumph Bonneville SE has an air-cooled 865cc parallel twin engine and has been described as a lighter model than the other two.

One of the characteristics of this motorcycle is the more comfortable riding position, the handlebar has been moved to be closer to the motorcyclist and the seat has been lowered. The style of the SE is also a very classic one but is heavily inspired by the 70s motorcycles. The design on the fuel tank is available in dual tones, pacific blue, jet black and white, with the always present logo on the side.
