Default Triumph Bonneville T100 launched at Rs. 7.78 lakh

Triumph has launched the Bonneville T100 in India, at a price of Rs. 7.78 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The T100 is the third bike to be sold under the Bonneville nameplate in the country, after the Street Twin and the T120.

The Bonneville T100 is powered by a 900cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that develops 54 BHP @ 5,900 rpm and 80 Nm of torque @ 3,230 rpm. This power mill is mated to a 5-speed gearbox that sends power to the rear wheel through an X-ring chain. The T100 rolls on custom developed Pirelli Phantom Sportscomp tyres.

Features included on the T100 include traction control, ABS, ride-by-wire throttle, torque assist clutch, an LED rear light and engine immobiliser.

The company is also offering 150 accessories to customise the Bonneville T100. These include heated grips, a centre stand and grab rail. Tank bags and panniers too are available for long-distance biking enthusiasts.

The T100 in India will be available in three colours: Aegean Blue & Fusion White with hand painted coach lines, Intense Orange & New England White with hand painted coach lines and Jet Black.

The T100 addresses the issue of equipment that is missing on the Street Twin. The 1200cc is a lot more expensive to consider for those who are only looking for the twin instrument pod and a few other bits, here and there.

Are Triumphs assembled in India?

The T120 costs 10.5x lac OTR in Kerala.
7.78 lac means, it would cost 9.5x or so here too. Almost a lac difference.

Good to see that they have added these goodies in T100 too.

I visited showroom last week. HYD On road price for new T100 is 9.85 lacks as on Oct 2016.

Just to hear the sound I started the bike and it sounded better than my T100. Wheel base is shorter and can be easily observed. Exhaust pipes are shorter than mine.

One good thing is they have covered the exhaust pipes with an additional cover pipe which will hide the brownish/blueish look of actual exhaust pipe lies inside. The entire bike exudes build quality and attention to detail (USP of Triumph).

But the T100 is shy by just 75K when compared to it's bigger sibling T120 (On Road is 10.60).

If the prospective buyer can add that additional amount, he will get bigger engine, more torque & BHP, driving modes, heated grips, Seat rear grab rail, DRL and Centre stand as a standard accessory.

My preference would be T120.

good to see Triumph offering more options to the customers by adding models to the Bonnie lineup. But like PISTONS said above, I would rather spend the meager 75k (relatively) more and get the T120. The additional capacity alone justifies the premium to my head let alone the other bit of kit the tT120 carries.

If money was not a constraint, I would absolutely opt for the Thruxton R. That machine is something else compared to the other Bonnies.

Pricing the new T100 just 70K lower than the T120 is like shooting themselves in the leg with respect to expecting sales for T100

Even a guy poor in math can figure out that shelling out 70K more would get him a better deal (T120 with a bigger heart and plenty of nice features)

Would be interesting to see the sales of T100 & T120. Both are now priced exorbitantly high and wonder if people are really buying it anymore?

One product that continues to fly of the shelf for Triumph is the Tiger 800
