Aussie prices for golden Bonnevilles

Bikes highlight paint shop skills

Triumph Australia has announced pricing for eight new Bonneville/Scrambler models with hand-painted “gold lining” or pinstriping.

The new Bonneville Gold Line Edition bikes highlight the skills of Triumph’s paint shop, presumably in Thailand where they are made.

Each bike will cost $1300 more than standard model.

That means that when they arrive in December the ride-away Aussie prices will be:

Bonneville T100 Gold Line Edition $19,190
Street Scrambler Gold Line Edition $19,490
Bonneville Speedmaster Gold Line Edition $23,790
Bonneville Bobber Gold Line Edition $23,790
Bonneville T120 Gold Line Edition $22,090
Bonneville T120 Black Gold Line Edition $22,090
Scrambler 1200 XC Gold Line Edition $24,690
Scrambler 1200 XE Gold Line Edition $26,090

The bikes will be available for one year only, so you may need to get in and order quickly as supply of all new bikes around the world seem to be slow due to global supply chain issues caused by the pandemic lockdowns last year.

Hand painted

Street Scrambler Gold Line

The hand-painted gold lining start with a two-colour base scheme, where the joining point between the two colours is flattened down.

The gold line is then hand-applied, usually in one continuous stroke by the artist, using a soft-bristled sword-liner brush. Once the pin stripe is in place, it’s sealed against the elements with a final clear coat of lacquer.

The paints used for the gold lining are specially formulated by mixing a powered colour with a cellulose lacquer for exactly the right consistency, as normal automotive paint is too thin for brush work.

Just like every hand-lined Triumph, the artist adds the finishing detail to each Gold Line Edition by signing their work with their initials.
