Triumph Bonneville T120 Elvis Presley Edition Revealed

The Triumph Bonneville T120 Elvis Presley Edition has been revealed, as an homage to the rock ‘n’ roll legend.

Elvis was an avid motorcycle fan, owning several motorcycles but Triumph was one of his favourite. He first got his leg on a Triumph T120 in 1965 which was owned by his friend Jerry Schilling. Elvis was so impressed that he went straight to ordering a T120 for each of his friends.

This new T120 bike is styled on Elvis’ most iconic ’68 ‘Comeback Special’ performance, which illuminated his name with red lightbulbs. As such, the bike features ‘ELVIS’ gold lettering in similar fashion to those stage lights, together with Presley’s signature on top of the tank. Elvis’ ‘Taking Care of Business in a Flash’ emblem is also featured on the front mudguard of the bike, the design of this is also featured on the necklace presented to each of his Memphis Mafia inner circle members.

The Carnival Red colour scheme was inspired by the Bonneville T120 TT which featured in Comedy Western ‘Stay Away Joe’ and the Bonnevilles which were gifted to the Memphis Mafia in 1965, besides the J Daar custom Bonneville created to raise money for the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation in 2023.

The Triumph Bonneville T120 Elvis Presley Edition is limited to 925 units worldwide, hence the serial number is laser etched onto the handlebar clamp with laser etched Elvis Presley’s signature. Each buyer will receive a Sony gold disc in an exclusive Elvis Presley and Triumph Motorcycles record sleeve, which also includes the certificate of authenticity, signed by Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor and Jamie Salter, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ABG, Elvis Presley Enterprises.

Price is £14,495 (RM86,780.70) on the road in the UK.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
