Triumph has produced a limited number of special-edition Bonneville T120 and T100 models to mark its Spirit of ’59 campaign.
Only 59 of each model will be available in UK Triumph dealers. They will not be available in any other markets.
It’s a bit of a shame because limited-edition colours and models have previously been available more widely and have been quickly snapped up by fans.
They also seem to have higher retained values when the owners sell.
The Spirit of ’59 T120 mimics the 1959 Bonneville 650 with its classic blue and orange paintwork that follows the tank contours rather than the more traditional divide down the centre.
The T100 has a similar blue and orange combination, but inna different design on top of an Opal White base.
Buyers of these limited-edition models will automatically go into a prize draw to win a Hedon Hedonist Knight White helmet valued at more than £300.
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.
The Spirit of ’59 campaign also involves Triumph joining forces with British contemporary artist D*Face to create three art-inspired custom Modern Classics – a Thruxton R, Bobber Black and T120 – to celebrate the original and iconic 1959 Triumph Bonneville.
Working closely with the Triumph team at its factory headquarters in Hinckley, long-standing Triumph fan and owner D*Face has customised the three bikes in his unique style, which blends street and pop art with punk in a guerrilla creative style.
Fans who test ride a Triumph Modern Classic before April 30, 2018, will also be entered into the draw to win one of these unique bikes.
