Triumph Motorcycles announced the arrival of five new Bonneville motorcycles at EICMA. Out of the five announced motorcycles – Street Twin, T120, T120 Black, Thruxton and Thruxton R – three bikes will make it to the Indian market. Two of these three motorcycles, coming to India sometime in 2016, are the Street Twin and T120. Where the Street Twin has an all-new 900cc engine producing 54bhp of power, the T120 is powered by a 1,200cc engine whose specifications have not been revealed yet by Triumph.
The current Bonneville has an 865cc mill delivering peak torque of 61Nm, the new 900cc engine produces 80Nm, and 54bhp of optimum power and retails for Rs 6,19,990 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) in the Indian market, and the Street Twin, if gets launched around Rs 6.5 lakh, it should carry forward the legacy the Bonneville has created in India.
The current T100, which uses the same 865cc engine and delivers the same numbers, is priced at Rs 6,97,610 (Ex-showroom, Delhi), you might have to cough up a little more for the T120, which is expected to be priced somewhere around RS 8.5 lakh. But the new engine makes up for the extra cash as it produces 105 Nm of peak torque against the T100’s 61Nm which is 54% more than the figure the T100 delivers.
