Default Difference between a Bonneville and Bonneville T100

Hey guys.. I really like Bonnevilles, however the T100 is confusing me a bit. On their website, Triumph doesnt really mention a difference, the specs read pretty much the same, and visually except for different paint schemes I cant figure out a difference. If anyone knows and can enlighten me, I'd really appreciate it. The T100 looks like a better option for youngsters cause I'm only 23. Thanks a lot

The only difference is that the regular Bonneville is 790cc and the T100 is 865cc. Not a lot of difference, no matter which one you buy. The extra u pay for the T100 is just for the extra 80-90cc and the color scheme. even the dimensions and body parts are the same.

good to see some more Triumph fans out here.

for 2007, the engine has been upgraded to 865cc for both the Bonneville & the T100 variant.

that's 865cc for both.
yes, they have the same mechanical specs, you just pay extra for lots of chrome and some newer parts here & there for the T100.

as they mention on the website: "itís the look that sets the T100 apart".
