Six Triumph Bonneville series models updated for 2021

By sep, 23 February 2021

Triumph Motorcycles has dropped a massive bomb today by unveiling the latest set of 2021 Triumph Bonneville models. A total of six models were heavily revised for 2021 which includes the Triumph Bonneville T120, T120 Black, T100, Street Twin, Bobber, and Speedmaster. The key aspects that have gone through major evolutions would be increased performance, updated styling, and enhanced riding capabilities.

Starting off with the 2021 Triumph Bonneville T120 and T120 Black, their classic and timeless exterior features have been maintained (because why change a beautiful thing, right?) but the most notable changes can be seen (or unseen) within all those body parts and panels. Its 1200cc twin-cylinder engine is now Euro5-compliant, but more responsive than ever thanks to its 80hp and 105Nm power outputs.

The new T120s are now 7kg lighter due to a number of changes, including a set of lightweight aluminium spoke wheels that retains that ‘modern classic’ flare. Other updates include higher-spec Brembo brakes for the front twin rotors, cruise control, enhanced riding modes (Road and Rain), a new twin instrument cluster, and a beautifully made chromed tank badge.

Moving on to the 2021 Triumph Bonneville T100, the same update themes apply to this entry-level modern-classic such as a new 900cc parallel-twin Euro5 engine that produces 65hp (10hp increase) and 80Nm torque, 4kg decrease, updated cartridge forks and Brembo brakes, new instrument face, and a sexy black powder-coated finish for its engine and cam covers.

As for the 2021 Street Twin, the same updates apply as the T100 apart but what differs it from the model stated above is a more custom-styled machine. Updates include new cast wheels, bench seat, body panels, foil tank badge, throttle body finishes, and brushed aluminium headlight brackets. Riding this during the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride should be more than perfect.

Want something a bit more ‘fancy’? Opt for the Street Twin Gold Line Limited Edition which comes with hand-detailed custom details like the gold linings found on its very unique gold and black custom paint job. If you’re planning to bag this one, do hurry as there will only be 1,000 units available. Ever.

The 2021 Triumph Bonneville Speedmaster probably takes the cake when it comes to what’s arguably Triumph’s most beautiful motorcycle in the modern-classic segment. This time around, the Speedmaster comes with an updated 1,200cc Euro5 parallel-twin engine that produces 78hp and 106Nm of torque while reducing the amount of emission it produces.

For the 2021 model, future customers will also get upgraded higher-spec Showa 47mm cartridge forks, increased comfort for both rider and pillion thanks to reworked riding ergonomics, switchable twin seating to single-seat setup, and more. updated details can also be seen on its LCD multi-function display.

Last but not least, the 2021 Triumph Bonneville Bobber aka “the bad boy of the bunch”. Like the rest, its 1200cc engine is also updated to comply with the Euro5 emission regulations, but the rest gets more exciting. We’re talking a larger 12-litre fuel tank, higher-spec Brembo brakes, new Showa cartridge forks, bigger 16-inch front wheel, and a host of electronic riding aid updates.

These updates include a new full LED headlight with DRLs (all lights are LEDs), single-button cruise control, selectable riding modes (Road and Rain), ABS, switchable traction control, torque assist clutch, and an immobilizer for added safety. More ‘blackness’ can be found thanks to additions of black powder-coated engine, cam, and sprocket covers, as well as instrument styling.

An entire new range of accessories will be made available for the new 2021 Triumph Bonneville series. All models come with a two-year warranty with unlimited mileage. Now that’s classy. For more details, head over to any of the Triumph Motorcycle Malaysia authorised dealers. We’re pretty sure that the bikes will be opened for bookings considering how fast they work to bring in new models onto our shores.
