If you ask a fan from the motorbike community, the global iconic motorbike brand, you are sure to get Triumph at the top of that list. Triumph motorbikes have a legacy of nearly 100 years. A British motorbike, first manufactured in 1902, lost the number one position and brand preference in the motorbike community over the years.
In 1983, things changed as John Bloor bought the brand Triumph and the manufacturing rights to this legendary motorbike. He brought on board several Japanese designers and engineers to give a makeover to this British icon. The Triumph relaunched many models; however, the Bonneville has tremendous appeal in the motorbike community.
The all-new Bonneville T120 was launched in 2021 globally and also in the Indian motorbike market.
