Birthday Bonnie a real Tart

March 15 2012

Triumph is celebrating its 110th birthday this year and paying homage to its history by offering customers a special model from its Classics range of motorcycles. And it only takes one look at the newly revealed 2012 Bonneville T100 110th Anniversary Edition to confirm that it’s a fitting tribute to the Triumph brand; “nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more,” there are even a few images of the pretty lass.

Mostly based on classic Bonnevilles from the ‘60s, the 110th Anniversary Edition combines aluminum, silver and khaki green paints to reflect the liveries of Triumph’s earliest motorcycles. Further developing the theme for the Anniversary Edition is the reinterpreted Triumph badging on its side covers. Also based on original designs, the graphics add a subtle touch of class along with the bike’s chromed chain guard, cam cover and grab rail.

Unchanged mechanically, the Anniversary Edition uses the same 865 cc parallel twin found in other models within Triumph’s Classic line. The DOHC, fuel injected engine produces a claimed 67 hp and is known for its distinctly British exhaust note.

Just like the Steve McQueen Edition that Triumph is also producing for 2012, the 110th Anniversary Bonneville T100 will only be available in limited numbers. Each bike will come fitted with a lovely little plaque stamped with its Limited Edition number. And to impress everyone visiting your man cave, a certificate of authenticity will also be provided. However, here’s a word of warning: Of the 1,000 models being built, only 25 have been allotted for Canada. “I say old man, that’s not cricket – and certainly no way to treat the colonies.”

If you imagine yourself riding this Bonnie, we suggest you contact your Triumph dealer pronto. The bike will be available in May and will have an MSRP of $10,999. More information – as always – is available on the web; just make yourself a cuppa and enter into your internet browser.
