An 1100cc Bonneville...
« on: September 08, 2015, 12:47:49 PM »
The new bike is the range-topping 1100cc parallel-twin version of a new range of bikes that will completely replace the current range of 865cc classic Triumphs in 2016. This is the first time the bike has been shown in complete and undisguised form with only the exhaust tape and accessories like the mini indicators not being standard.

The new Bonneville range has been spotted in many and various forms over the past three years as it underwent testing and development and MCN has been at the forefront of spy photography tracking the progress of a range that’s vital to the success of the British firm.

Nothing official is known about this bike; rumoured to be named Street Tracker according to trademarks lodged in 2014; except for the fact the engine is completely new, around 1100cc, water-cooled for the first time and packing a lot more power so it can take on the likes of the BMW R nineT.

This version of the bike gets high spec Ohlins twin shocks, meaty upside down front forks, Brembo radial calipers and spoked wheels for a modern take on the classic Bonneville.


I might.

How much weight did this just add to a bike that wasn't especially light?
