Spirit of ’59 invoked by special edition

A LIMITED NUMBER of special edition Bonneville T120 and T100 bikes are to be released to mark Triumph’s Spirit of ’59 campaign. Only 59 examples of each model will be available.

Inspired by the original T120 650 Bonneville of 1959, the modern-day equivalent will sport a classic blue and orange design that sees the colour scheme follow the contours of the tank. The T100 will follow suit, with a similar blue and orange combination on top of an Opal White base. Buyers of both modern classics will be entered into a prize draw to win a matching Knight White helmet from cult manufacturer Hedon’s Hedonist range. 


Triumph is also giving customers the opportunity to win an exclusive Spirit of ’59 painted fuel tank as an added incentive for those that take a test ride on any Triumph Modern Classic before the end of June. 

Triumph has also announced a partnership with dealership Streetbike to represent the brand in the West Midlands from its dealership in Halesowen. To be called Triumph Birmingham West, the Streetbike premises on Dudley Road will offer full sales and aftersales services.

Gary Marshall, owner of Streetbike, said: “Triumph is an iconic motorcycle brand with a fantastic range of products across Adventure, Roadsters and Modern Classics.


Paul Lilly, general manager, Triumph Motorcycles UK & Ireland, said: “This is a great time to be a Triumph dealer. We are very pleased to welcome Streetbike and look forward to working with them. Not only do they offer a passionate and committed staff, but also a track record of sales success.”
