The Bonneville 865 having been eclipsed by the arrival of the T120 and its 1200 cm3, it was to be expected that it would disappear from the catalog in the longer or medium term. Suddenly, would the Street Twin defend alone the bastion of the mid-size revival? ? No, it sees itself supported in 2017 by the new Bonneville T100, in the 900 cm3 category this time.
The "small" Bonnie in turn perpetuates the spirit and style of the original 1959 model. She leaves it to the T120 to offer big torque, more luxury, and the price that goes with it. Its thing is to be more accessible, both financially and mechanically. Not everyone wants a big twin; one can legitimately appreciate a reasonable power, where the right wrist can be sharp without fear of overflows. Or just take it easy.
Here, it is the recent parallel twin of 900 cm3 which officiates, coming directly from the Street Twin. A little more displacement than the previous block, a lot of less horsepower (must be noted the difference with the 1200), but much more torque obtained much earlier. A maximum of 8.2 mkg is obtained a little above 3000 rpm. With the previous 865 cm3 block, we were only entitled to 7.1 mkg, which had to be sought around 6000 rpm. Covers and sensations take a step forward with this "High Torque. Let us leave aside its 55 horses; this kind of equestrian values is almost superfluous in this category of machines. Well, let’s be fair and Quae sunt Caesaris, Caesari: the Bonneville of yesterday could count on 67 hp.
Marking a clear break with its predecessor, it steals a whole bunch of technologies from its big sister T120, also shared with the Street Twin, such as liquid cooling, ride-by-wire, ABS, traction control, an assisted clutch, a USB socket, a coded immobilizer, etc….
Less powerful but more svelte, the T100 is more mischievous than the Bonnie 1200. It is lighter (11 kilos less), has a lower saddle, and a shorter wheelbase / hunting duo. If the machine is less vigorous, it will be more lively and agile.
It will be necessary to ignore certain things, standard on the 1200 but optional on the 900. Like the heated grips, the central stand and the passenger grip. He has the means to have more, much more. At least 150 accessories are waiting on the shelves. However, certain elements will remain the privilege of the 1200: the 6-speed gearbox and the two injection maps..
In March 2019, Triumph launched a major recall campaign for its Bonneville and Street models manufactured between August 11, 2015 and January 13, 2019.
It is therefore the Bonneville T100, T120, Street Twin, Street Cup and Street Scrambler (or 68,686 motorcycles in the world) which were asked to go through the dealership for a problem of "clutch cable that could come in contact with the main harness wiring and damage it", with a risk of malfunction of the lighting and indicators as well as a loss of power.
