Triumph Motorcycles UK has produced a limited number of special edition Bonneville T120 and T100 bikes to mark its Spirit of ’59 campaign. Marked out by striking custom paintwork, only 59 examples of each model will be available across Triumph’s network of UK dealers.
Evoking images of the iconic T120 Bonneville 650 bike of 1959, the modern-day equivalent will sport a classic blue and orange design that sees the colour scheme follow the contours of the tank rather than the more traditional divide down the centre.
The T100 will follow suit, with a similar blue and orange combination on top of an Opal White base, with purchasers of both modern classics entered into a prize draw to win a matching Knight White helmet from cult manufacturer Hedon’s Hedonist range.
Triumph is also giving customers the opportunity to win an exclusive Spirit of ’59 painted fuel tank as an added incentive for those that take a test ride on any Triumph Modern Classic before the end of June.
In addition to the special edition models, the Spirit of ’59 campaign has seen Triumph join forces with British contemporary artist D*Face to create three art-inspired custom Modern Classics – a Thruxton R, Bobber Black and T120 – to celebrate the original and iconic 1959 Triumph Bonneville.
Working closely with the Triumph team at its factory headquarters in Hinckley, long-standing Triumph fan and owner D*Face has customised the three bikes in his unique style, which blends street and pop art with punk in a guerrilla creative style.
Fans who test ride a Triumph Modern Classic before 30th April 2018 will also be entered into the draw to win one of these unique bikes.
Paul Lilly, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles UK & Ireland, said: “The Spirit of ’59 campaign is a great way to celebrate Triumph’s iconic heritage. Styled to conjure memories of the iconic ’59 Bonneville, the special edition motorcycles hark back to a defining era in our history. We can’t wait to see the positive reaction when they hit showrooms across the UK.”
