Triumph @ INTERMOT 2016

Triumph @ INTERMOT 2016: New Bonneville T100 series and Street Cup unveiled in Germany.

The famed British motorcycle purveyors from Hinckley unveiled three new additions to its new generation liquid-cooled Bonneville range this week during INTERMOT 2016.

Here’s a quick walkthrough of the three new Brits for 2017.

2017 Triumph Bonneville T100 & T100 Black
Meet the new Bonneville T100 and T100 Black twins. Inspired by the original from 1959, the T100 series now offers fans a direct replacement from the last Bonneville T100.


Unlike the existing Bonneville T120 series, the T100 features Triumph’s new liquid-cooled 900cc parallel-twin derived from the Street Twin entry-level model. Though power and torque are lower than the T120, the new T100 makes up for it through its minimalistic styling and vast accessories catalogue.


Aesthetically, both bikes mirror what their T120 siblings offer. While the standard T100 offers a true classic stance complete with all the chrome brightworks, the latter T100 Black offers a darker approach and stance instead.


Fans will definitely appreciate the T100’s minimalist approach, looking a lot cleaner and neater than its predecessor as it makes do without all the exposed wiring and ancillaries.


Triumph has also gone to work with the T100 series’ chassis, focusing more on enhancing ride comfort. New-aged electronics are key here too as both feature ride-by-wire throttles, ABS, switchable traction control, torque-assist clutch plus a under-seat USB charging port.

Other notable features worth mentioning here include the LCD instrument display, cruise control and heated grips, with the latter two making this a much more touring-friendly model over its Street Twin sibling.

2017 Triumph Street Cup
Launched alongside the T100 series was the new café racer offshoot of the Triumph Street Twin. Christened as the Triumph Street Cup, the model now offers fans a café racer option based off the popular Street Twin.


Distinct new elements here can be seen with its bullet seat and removable seat cowl, fly screen plus the drop bars and bar end mirrors. Capping things off, Triumph will also offer two-tone paint scheme options for the Street Cup.
