Triumph Bonneville T100 Black, T120 Black launching on June 12
Triumph Motorcycles is set to launch its Bonneville T100 Black and T120 Black in India on June 12, an official tweet has confirmed. These bikes will come as updated versions of the T100 and T120, featuring a blacked-out finish instead of the shiny chrome garnish we saw on the outgoing models. Meanwhile, mechanically, the Black duo will remain unchanged.
The Triumph Bonneville T100 Black and T120 Black will retain the retro design of their predecessors, featuring a sloping fuel tank, tubular steel frame, and rounded headlamps and turn indicators. However, they will now flaunt a blacked-out finish on the engine, mirrors, indicators, wheels, as well as exhausts. The motorcycles will also get a digital-analog instrument console, LED/halogen headlights, and spoked wheels.
The Bonneville T100 Black is reportedly powered by a BS6-compliant liquid-cooled 900cc motor which is paired to a five-speed gearbox and generates a power of 54bhp and a peak torque of 80Nm. The T120 Black, on the other hand, will get a BS6-compliant 1,200cc liquid-cooled powertrain that comes mated to a six-speed gearbox and makes 79bhp of power and a peak torque of 105Nm.
To ensure the safety of the rider, the Triumph Bonneville T100 and T120 Black will be equipped with disc brakes. The duo will also get dual-channel ABS, ride-by-wire, and switchable traction control. To handle suspension duties, the naked tourers will be equipped with KYB 41mm forks on the front and KYB twin shocks with adjustable pre-load on the rear side.
Triumph Motorcycles will launch the Bonneville T100 Black and Bonneville T120 Black in India on June 12. While the pricing will be announced at the launch event, we expect them to come at around Rs. 9 lakh and Rs. 10 lakh, respectively.
