Riders looking for a Sixties-style Bonneville need look no further than the wirewheeled T100 model, a motorcycle with looks straight out of ‘the day’ combined with thoroughly modern technology and manufacturing techniques.
Adding subtle touches to the uncluttered Bonneville form, the T100 echoes the classic ‘deluxe’ speedster of the Sixties. The T100’s full-blooded and responsive 865cc, parallel twin-cylinder engine delivers throaty acceleration, amplified by the mellow backbeat from its twin peashooter exhaust pipes.
Maximum power of 67PS arrives at 7,500rpm, with peak torque of 68Nm delivered at 5,800rpm. The chassis – a tubular steel frame, 41mm telescopic forks and chromed twin rear shocks – offers secure road-holding, effortless steering and easy-going manners, just as you would expect of a bike derived from Bonneville heritage. Likewise the powerful twin-piston calipers operating on front and rear discs ensure excellent stopping ability. Completing the T100 are a tachometer, rubber knee grips, chromed engine covers and fork gaiters. A comprehensive range of accessories are also available for the T100 to give an even more individual look.
The elegant two-tone paint options for 2010 include Jet Black with a Fusion White infill and Forest Green with a New England White infill, both of which come with a gold coach line. The T100’s coach lines are hand applied, with each craftsman initialling the underside of a completed tank.
