1969 Triumph Bonneville T120R

Slender, sober and elegant.

Equipped with exceptional performance for the time,

SHE REVEALS AN IRRESISTIBLE CHARM.


The Bonneville T120 was released in 1958 and, always improved over the years, remained in production until 1970.

The name evokes the 1956 speed record (over 345 km / h) set by the Triumph on the Salt Lake near the small village of Bonneville in the US state of Utah.

Its classic twin-cylinder engine is very pleasant when asked to show off all its grit, but it lets itself be driven calmly and naturally in touring speeds.

The handling is remarkable due to the low weight; setting curve after curve presents no difficulty.

The front drum brake is rather soft and progressive, braking is acceptable without the risk of blocking. The rear drum little helps.

The gearbox is 4-speed on the right, the first down and the others up. This detail requires a certain initial concentration to those used to driving modern bikes, with the gearbox on the left.

The beautiful and elegant "bottle" mufflers, characteristic of the Bonnie, thrill thanks to their gritty "sound".

The riding position is comfortable and not particularly tiring, even on long journeys; it is the ideal choice for those who are fascinated by its sixties lines and are looking for a light, agile and at the same time powerful vehicle.

It does not require special experience to be conducted safely.

The Bonneville T120 is a motorcycle with character, the benchmark for all British production of the period.
