Triumph: five new models for the coming year Home Hinckley has finally lifted the veil heir of Bonneville. With it the new Thruxton and the unprecedented Twin Street. Many innovations, without forgetting the past When a model is so successful it is always very difficult act to modernize it. It happened periodically in Ducati, with its Monster, or BMW, with the GS. Even more difficult, however, you get your hands on a motorcycle inspired by the past. If a model with “modern”, in fact, a good portion of the game can only thanks to the grafting of new technology, far more complicated the work of renovation when certain technical characteristics seems can not be questioned. A hard row to hoe, the same in which she found herself in front of Triumph when he began to turn over in his hands the projects of the good old Bonneville and her sisters (Thruxton, Scrambler). Two possible solutions – at least apparently. Number one: clean break with the past, no longer a motorcycle heritage, but a modern classic style Ducati Scrambler. Very current technology, lines partially inspired by the past, but a contemporary motion in all respects and as such perceived by the public. Option Two: a few tweaks and targeted, you do not change a winning team, just a couple of things not to continue selling a motorcycle than fifteen years old. Triumph, stunned everyone, chose a third way. The new Bonneville succeeds with a triple pike to maintain a close link with the past, proposing at the same time, truly innovative technical solutions, than the models that preceded it. A completely new bike, the chassis and the engine, which seems to give a renewed impetus to the Bonneville series, to a long and lasting (more) successful. Five models, new solutions Those whose mother Triumph has taken the veil in recent hours are even five different models. It starts with a new founder, the new Bonnie, now called T120, also available in Black version. At his side he debuted the new entry-level, lower airspace and different equipment: Street is called Twin. They are joined by two models sport setting: the Thruxton Thruxton and R. What changes? As anticipated, all. But some details more than others. Things like the new engine, which on Bonneville and Thruxton even reaches 1,200 cc and that, above all, is now presented with an unprecedented liquid cooling. A choice certainly suffered, the engineers of Hinckley, who did turn up their nose to the purists – for which the Bonneville is and must remain a motorcycle with air cooling – and that the spy photos that have been circulating had left a bit ‘ puzzled too. The presence of the radiator is, in fact, a rather discordant note, this type of bike. The end result, however, seems more than good and its size at the sight should be more than offset by a large gain, in terms of usability and performance. Figures released at the time concern only the couple: the Bonnie speaks of 105 Nm at 3,100 rpm, while the Thruxton – on which the 1200 has a higher compression ratio, an air box plus and a lighter crankshaft – the value stated is 112 Nm at 4,950 rpm. Also the Street Twin mounts a liquid-cooled engine, but in this case the cubic volume is 900 cc, with a maximum torque of 80 Nm at 3200 rpm (equal, according to Triumph, to 18% more, with respect to the units of the previous generation ) and consuming less than 36% compared to the Bonneville retiring. A bike that was not there And it is the Twin Street to give shape to a version that did not exist previously, in the family of the classic branded Triumph. Conceived as a model access to the range, it is distinguished, in reality, for peculiar characteristics. Its shapes remind us with pleasure some of the more special that we preferred, in recent years, as the Clubman LSL (which is the real basis of Kawasaki, but so be it). It has a lower seat and a smaller engine than the sisters. A bike easier, particularly suited to beginners and, in the minds of men Triumph, it should be the preferred choice for those who want to give themselves to customization wildest. Not surprisingly, the range of accessories includes over 150 special three pre-packaged kits: Scrambler, Brat Tracker and Urban. For all, so much electronic Among the most important technical innovations is the epochal leap forward made by the new motion from the point of view of electronics. The choice of the field was made: yes to a full ride by wire, with customization options that follow. All five bikes have so at least two different driving modes: the “road” and “rain”. The Thruxton also map “sport”. All also they come with traction control (switchable on Thruxton), Abs series, slipper clutch, six-speed gearbox and a USB connection on the dashboard for charging phones / navigation / whatever. Strong seriously Among the most interesting things about the new bike there is also the presence of the variant R, the Thruxton. If the basic version proves to be a motorcycle really enjoyable, in terms of driving (at least on paper), the sister peppery leaves foretaste fled to the mountains as if they are long, with a bike finally, really, road (and not on a SBK to hold off), from the line very well managed and the components extremely interesting. R mounts, in fact, a Showa Big Piston front, Öhlins shock absorbers at the rear, marked radial Brembo monoblock calipers, double disc and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa. All for a power that would be around hundred horses and a weight we imagine quite content. Real pleasure. With the dome-style Ducati Paul Smart – optional – even more so. And among the accessory kit already designed by Triumph there is one – the R Thruxton Race Performance – specially designed for driving on the track. Not bad, right? Then? So beautiful there, Triumph. We really like the new bikes. We do not know how to go but we can imagine – and we expect things like “good”. No information has yet been made about the prices. Keep in mind that Bonnie have always had a large market even on second and there is, therefore, why Triumph has decided to “sell off” these models. There will certainly cheapest stuff on the market but, eye, should be worth it.
