In addition to the all-new 2010 Triumph Thunderbird 1600, Triumph’s entire modern classic and cruiser range has been updated for the 2009 model year. The biggest change is the addition of fuel injection (Triumph no longer makes any carbureted bikes) and the new colors you can see here. Triumph’s complete location shoot and specs for each model after the jump.
Now available in either black or white, it adapts a ‘70s influenced
look complete with 17” seven-spoke mag wheels, a mostly-black engine and
a lower seat height. A host of unseen chassis changes are claimed to
make the Bonneville a better handler. Power is 67bhp. The leather panniers on the white Bonnie are seriously good-looking.
Triumph Bonneville SE
Same engine and chassis as the Bonneville, but is available in either
black or blue/white color schemes. The main difference is brushed aluminum engine covers, the addition of a tachometer and
chrome tank badges.
Triumph Bonneville T100
The T100 gets a more ‘60s-style look with spoked wheels (19” on the
front), black clocks and fork gaiters. The T100 will be available in
black/white, green/white, red/silver and a limited edition orange/white.
The big change is the inclusino of flat bars over clip-ons. Power is
69bhp, there are bar-end mirrors, megaphone exhausts, spoked wheels
(18” front) and two color schemes: red with a white stripe down the
middle, or black with a gold stripe.
New colors: either black or a really cool matte green. 59bhp.
Triumph Bonneville America
61bhp, good looking wheels, brushed engine covers and paint that comes in black, blue/white or light blue/dark blue flavors.
61bhp, a mostly black engine and black or black/white paint.
While all of these bikes remain some of the most handsome retros
available, we’d have liked to have seen louder pipes on the Scrambler, more power across the range and some more character — something that’s
more than skin deep — imbued in all the above models.
