2016 Water Cooled Triumph Bonneville - A Motorcycle For Everyone

The motorcycle is said to be unveiled towards the end of October 2015.

Launched in 2000, the classic bi-wheeler of Triumph which is crafted in a daily commuter bike design, the Bonneville becomes an easiest mode of transportation. In the premium class motorcycling. It's all because that the company wants to keep the machine a classy finish which can invade into generations and generations. Currently, there have been a few spy photos of what’s said to be the all-new liquid-cooled Triumph Bonneville for 2016. They reveal a new engine, new chassis and new styling that’s even more authentically retro than the current model. Though the new engine appears to retain fully-functional cooling fins, there’s also a radiator mounted just behind the front wheel. Coolant hoses, though, are nowhere to be seen, suggesting the new bike might route coolant through its frame tubes. At the other end of the engine, the Bonneville retains fuel-injection throttle bodies disguised as old-fashioned carburetors.

The engine cases and covers closely mimic those of the unit-construction Bonneville’s of the 1960s, instead of the current model’s pre-unit Bonneville looks. The new bike is registered as to having the same 865cc capacity as the current model, but rumors doing rounds are that the new engine is somewhat larger in displacement. Either way, the addition of liquid-cooling hints at a significant jump in performance. Bigger, sportier tires back up that suggestion; this prototype rolls on a 150/70 R17 Pirelli Phantom Sports Comp at the rear, up from a 130/70 on the current bike. And the front wheel is 18-inches in diameter instead of 19, with a 100/90 R18 tire. Wire wheels hint this is the T100, since the current line-up puts cast alloy wheels on the base model. Just as much work has gone into the engine’s appearance as its technology, which will include ride-by-wire throttle, opening the door to options like traction control. On the outside, the cases are close replicas of the original Bonneville’s; it looks much more like a 1960s bike than the current version does. On the cylinder head, the exhaust exits are mounted at an angle and the header pipes are attached with finned aluminium collars, just as they are on the original Bonneville.

Word is that the transmission will also be entirely new, with six speeds instead of the current five, and the whole power train is mounted in a redesigned frame. It’s still made of steel, but, again, its lines are more like an original Bonneville’s than the current generation. The same applies to the fuel tank, seat, and side panels, and even the taillight has been designed to replicate a 1960s design. Currently, there is no official statement made by the company, all that is said is from speculations and looks at the spied images. The company has confirmed an official unveiling of the bike to take place on October 28, 2015. Prices might see a slight variation from the current Bonneville.
