TRIUMPH HAS ANNOUNCED two special editions of the Bonneville T120 and T100 that celebrate the legend of Bud Ekins.
Bud was a professional Hollywood stuntman, top motocross and desert racer, and the rider in the 1960s who made arguably the most famous motorcycle film jump in history, in the The Great Escape, on behalf of his friend and ISDT partner, Steve McQueen.
These two new Bonneville specials feature a one-off California-inspired Bud Ekins paint scheme and see a revival of the old Meriden-Triumph badge along with a range of dedicated special details and touches.
As well as the Ekins specials, Triumph also has a new version of the Thruxton café racer and a new special edition of its Bobber.
