1969 TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE 650 T120R

Slender, sober and stylish

IT REVEALS A SPECIAL CHARM.

The Bonneville T120 has produced from 1958 till 1975 and always improved itself over the years.

The model designed and built between 1967 and 1970 is to be considered the masterpiece in the Bonnie's History.

Its name evokes the speed record (over 345 km/hrs) achieved by a Triumph motorcycle in 1956 on Salt Lake, close to the small village of Bonneville (Utah).

The classic vertical 4-stroke parallel-twin engine offers an amazing drive, especially when you need some grit and performance!

Thanks to its light weight, it is easy to handle and really nice and pleasant ti ride.

The front dual cam expanding brake is quite soft and progressive. Breaking is acceptable with no danger of wheel locks, while the rear drum doesn't help so much.

The lever of the 4-speed gearbox is on the right, the first gear is down. This detail requires a certain initial concentration because we usually ride modern bikes with gears on the left side.

The beautiful and elegant "bottle-made" mufflers, typical features of the Bonnie, have a powerful sound.

The riding position is comfortable and not particularly tiring, even on long tours; it is the ideal choice for those are fascinated by its “sixties style” and are looking for a light, agile but at the same time powerful bike.

To ride this bike in safety, not much experience is required.

The T120 Bonneville model has such a strong personality that becomes the reference point for all the English productions of that period.

Enjoy your ride!
