Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd officially introduces full range of the new Triumph Bonneville in Malaysia.
Exclusive Malaysian Triumph Motorcycles importer and distributor Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd celebrated the launch of the all-new generation Triumph Bonneville range earlier today.
Present here were Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd’s top-tier executives led by COO Datuk Razak Al-Malique Hussain. Also present here was Marc McConnell, Triumph’s regional export sales manager for Asia Pacific.
The launch saw Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd officially introducing the full range of the new generation Triumph Bonneville modern classic bike. The range consists three core variants starting with the basic Street Twin, followed by the Bonneville T120 and the Thruxton R.
Street TwinFirst in the range comes the entry-level Street Twin variant that has already gone on sale through Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd with a basic price tag of RM55,900 (excluding road tax and insurance costs).
As previously reported, the new Triumph Bonneville Street Twin features a brand new new liquid-cooled 900cc parallel-twin powerplant that develops 54hp and 80Nm of peak torque. The mill is paired with a five-speed transmission that also boasts a slipper clutch feature.
Despite its classic retro outlooks, the Street Twin boasts several modern amenities that is primed as standard. Highlights here include its comprehensive LCD display to complement the analogue speedometer, LED taillight, as well as an under-seat USB charging port.
New from the ground up, the Street Twin has a claimed dry weight of just 198kg, making it 11kg lighter than its predecessor. Triumph further claims that the new liquid-cooled twin-cylinder heart boasts a 36% improvement in its fuel efficiency to match its enhanced power and torque figures.
Furthermore, three custom ‘Inspiration Kits’ are also available for the Street Twin – Urban, Brat Tracker and Scrambler. These kits gives buyers the additional option towards personalising the Street Twin to their desired tastes. Notably, ABS, ride-by-wire and traction control also come primed as standard in the Street Twin.
Bonneville T120 & T120 Black
Sitting in the middle of the range is the new Triumph Bonneville T120 variant that can be had in either standard or in ‘Black’ trims. As its name suggest, the Bonneville T120 features yet another new liquid-cooled eight-valve parllel-twin mill with a larger 1,200cc displacement.
The high-torque mill develops 79hp and 105Nm that are transmitted using a new six-speed transmission primed with a slip-assist clutch as well. Again, ABS, ride-by-wire and traction comes as standard features once more in this mid-range model.
Tipping the scale at 225kg dry, the Bonneville T120 promises dynamic handling capabilities thanks to the presence of 41mm cartridge forks up front that offers 120mm of travel and a pair of Kayaba twin rear shocks with pre-load adjustability and 120mm of travel.
Unlike the basic Street Twin, the Bonneville T120 gets a more extensive features list too. Highlights here include selectable riding modes, an analogue twin-dial instrument display with integrated multi-info LCD digital displays, LED taillight and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) in the headlight, as well as an under-seat USB charger port.
Whilst the standard Bonneville T120 offers a more timeless look and classic stance, the Bonneville T120 Black offers a little more attitude thanks to its darker stance. It comes fitted with blacked-out components and details plus a dark brown leather seat to complete its darker look.
Triumph also highlights that there over 160 accessories available exclusively for the Bonneville T120 range, offering owners a much wider variety of personalisation here once more. Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd will be retailing both with a starting price of RM79,900 (exlcuding road tax and insurance costs).
Last but not least comes the range-topping Thruxton R variant. The sportiest of the lot is set to offer plenty of performance to match its classic cafe racer styling.
The same high-torque liquid-cooled 1,200cc parallel-twin as found in the Bonneville T120 powers the Thruxton R, but it is tuned to develop a higher output of 96hp and 112Nm of torque instead. Again, the unit is paired with a six-speed transmission primed with a slipper clutch feature too.
Highlights in the features list include things like LED DRLs and taillight, under-seat USB charging port, analogue twin-dial instrument with integrated multi-info LCD displays and selectable riding modes. Also fitted as standard here are ABS, ride-by-wire and traction control.
Besides that, the Thruxton also benefits with two custom ‘Inspiration Kits’ that owners can choose from – Cafe Racer and Track Tracker. Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd is retailing the flagship Thruxton R cafe racer at the starting price of RM91,900 (excluding road tax and insurance costs).
