If you want simple, classic motorcycle style, 60 years, which makes your head spin just for its simplicity and this classic line, the Triumph Bonneville is for you. The intent of success, Triumph, you recreate the 60 years with modern technology. And it is precisely this recreation of the atmosphere that draws attention to the Bonneville.
The engine is a modern, though from 865 cc parallel twin, air cooled with a beautiful classical line with two monobloc carburettors, very fake. Gently produces an output of 65 horses, with a torque of 68 Nm at 5800 RPM. Always electronic fuel injection. Dual exhaust, one on each side, steel, 2-2.
Even the Bonneville in a classic five-speed gearbox, multi-plate clutch in oil bath. The transmission is the classic chain, more than enough to power this bike.
The bike is low, with the saddle just 74 cm from the ground, which allows assisted by a dynamic frame to cradle in steel tubes, for a total weight of 225 kg lightened by alloy wheels 17 inch. Excellent for female drivers who prefer low motion, and read. A small tank, 14 litres, but with reduced power consumption that allow a good autonomy.
The brakes are excellent, with single 310 mm front and two-piston callipers and single rear 255 mm, always with two-piston caliper.
Classic and essential, instrumentation analog with speedometer, odometer only partial and the clock. Black or gold price from little more than 8000 euros.
