Triumph Bonneville T100, T120 Black coming to India in June
Triumph is planning to launch the Bonneville T100 Black and T120 Black motorcycles in India sometime around June this year. These models will arrive as contemporary versions of the T100 and T120, with an all blacked-out finish replacing the chrome garnishing. However, mechanically, the Bonneville Black duo will remain the same as the regular models except for packing BS6-compatible engines.
The Triumph Bonneville T100 and T120 Black retain the retro design of the T100 and T120 including the tubular steel frame, sloping fuel tank, and leather seats. However, the chrome finish on the wheels, engine, mirrors, indicators, and exhausts has been replaced with an all murdered-out design. The bikes also get a digital-analog instrument console, halogen/LED headlamp, spoked wheels, and a 14.5-liter fuel tank.
The Bonneville T120 Black and T100 Black will arrive with 1,200cc and 900cc BS6-compliant engines, respectively. However, their power figures are not known as of now. In the existing state of tune (Euro 4), the T120 generates a maximum power of 80PS and a peak torque of 105Nm, while the T100 churns out 55.6PS of power and 77Nm of torque.
To handle suspension duties, the Triumph Bonneville T100 Black and T120 Black come with KYB 41mm forks on the front and KYB twin shocks with adjustable pre-load on the rear end. In the braking department, the bikes come equipped with disc brakes along with dual-channel ABS, switchable traction control, and twin riding modes in the case of T120.
Triumph plans to launch the Black Edition models in India in June. However, that is subject to the COVID-19 situation at the time. As for pricing, in the UK, the Black models are priced at par with their standard counterparts. Hence, in India, the T100 should be priced around Rs. 8.9 lakh, while the T120 should cost roughly Rs. 10 lakh.
