Triumph for 2017 Strong on Retro Models

For 2017 no manufacturer is hitting the retro trail harder than Triumph, and with the timeless, classic appeal of the chrome clad Triumph Bonneville, why not?

The Triumph Bonneville, which is approaching the 60th anniversary of the celebrated ‘59 classic, is back as the Triumph T100, its gleaming blue-over-white fuel tank at the center of all of that chrome. There is also the Triumph T120 family, with Bonneville styling, whose models come in red and gray or blacked-out, each powered by Triumph’s new ‘high torque’ 8-valve, 1200cc engine.

More nostalgic yet might be the new Triumph Bonneville Bobber, which could just as well have been called the ‘Brando,’ for its 50’s lines. It is aimed squarely at the Gen Y crowd.

Triumph’s all-new Street Scrambler comes with a 19-inch front wheel, longer suspension travel, and plenty of options for fun, on or off-road.

For optimal performance, the Triumph Thruxton and Thruxton R bring even more, with their new 1200cc engines with an advertised power increase of 68 percent.

The 900cc Triumph Street Cup is a stripped down and nimble Cafe Racer that is at home on back roads, the twistier, the better.
