Unmatched Retro Cool: The 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100
The Triumph Bonneville T100 is the closest thing to the original Bonneville in the 2022 Triumph line-up. Take one look, and you’ll immediately see that this is one of the most classic-looking motorcycles on the market. Today, the British manufacturer’s ‘Bonneville’ range includes several models, but it’s the T100 that most closely resembles the original.
The Bonneville T100 is powered by a 900cc twin-cylinder engine that makes 64.1 hp and 59 lb-ft of torque. Those aren’t the most exciting numbers, but Triumph Motorcycles has tuned the engine such that 80% of peak torque is available all the way from 2,000rpm to 7,000rpm, giving you strong acceleration whenever needed.
Despite its retro styling and charm, the T100 does feature some modern tech. The British manufacturer has equipped the bike with ABS and switchable traction control. Unlike its bigger sibling, the Bonneville T120, the T100 misses out on riding modes.
For 2022, the Bonneville T100 is available in three classic color schemes — Lucerne Blue and Fusion White, with hand-painted silver coach lines; Carnival Red & Fusion White, with hand-painted silver coach lines; and Jet Black.
The 2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 starts at $10,795 USD / $11,945 CAD.

2022 Triumph Bonneville T100 Features
The latest ride-by-wire throttle and advanced fuel injection system combine to deliver immediate responsiveness. Whether you’re leisurely short-shifting through the slick 5-speed gearbox and riding the rich torque, cruising in town, or enjoying the top-end power on a spirited country road blast, the perfect throttle response ensures exceptional rideability for safety and control.
Other technical advances have made this the cleanest T100 to date. Such precision engineering means the first major service isn’t due until a high 10,000 miles (16,000km), adding yet more value to this incredible package.
Built for pure riding pleasure, the T100 is fitted with high quality suspension. New 41mm cartridge front forks instil confidence with an assured, planted feel. Twin rear suspension units are tuned to cope with the demands of the ride whether it’s solo, with a passenger or fully loaded with luggage for a weekend away.
New higher specification Brembo front brakes deliver improved stopping power and enhanced lever feel. Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tires developed specifically for the Bonneville give high levels of grip and feel, in all conditions, for a reassuring, confidence-inspiring ride.
Enjoying the weekend carving through sweeping bends or slicing through the weekday traffic, the responsive and easy handling T100 is the perfect starting point for your modern classic journey.
The relaxed riding position and comfortable dual seat mean you’ll want to ride for longer, wherever your journey takes you. The cleverly-engineered torque-assist clutch gives a light feel to the clutch lever to reduce rider fatigue, without compromising feel and control, to make easy work of the stop/start world of commuting and urban riding. For enhanced security and peace of mind, an engine immobilizer is built into the ignition key.
A USB charging point is conveniently located beneath the seat so charging your devices on the move couldn’t be easier. If you’re using a navigational device for your next big road trip, you can plug and play your way to your destination.
Accessories such as a center stand kit for ease of maintenance, passenger grab rails with built-in carrying racks and a selection of screens for improved long-range comfort are just some of the options available, and can be easily configured at the point of purchase to bring even more versatility to your T100.
With styling cues faithfully taken from the iconic 1959 Bonneville, the T100 encapsulates all of the spirit and silhouette of the original, beautifully evolved with modern design and capability.
Crafted and refined details include machined cooling fins on the cylinder head and a high quality twin-skin brushed exhaust, which hides the innovative catalyst under the bike, while maintaining its beautiful flowing lines. The spark plug caps and cylinder head bolts haven’t escaped the designers’ attentions, either; small details matter, and the T100 is engineered to look as good as it rides.
Sensitively incorporated, Triumph’s modern technology brings contemporary style. New instrument faces feature Bonneville branding and combine classic analogue dials with a digital multi-function display that is controlled by an easily accessible handlebar-mounted scroll button.
Premium paintwork can be seen throughout the T100 and extends from the durable chassis coating to the lustrous finish on the tank. Available in Jet Black, Carnival Red and Lucerne Blue, the latter two both blended with Fusion White and hand-painted Aluminum Silver coach lining, there’s a T100, beautifully finished, in a style to suit you.
