1959 – TRIUMPH BONNEVILLE T120 – 650


Graced by one of the most evocative model designations in the history of motorcycling, the Triumph Bonneville owes its existence to record-breaking successes achieved on the eponymous Utah salt flats in 1958, when a Tiger 110 set a new 650cc production machine record of over 147 mph . Triumph lost no time in capitalising on its technical breakthrough, announcing a new model equipped with the splayed head and twin Amal carburettors in September 1958: the Bonneville. It is a motorcycling icon: launched to great acclaim in 1959, and made famous by racers and film stars, it was a powerful, good-looking machine that matched perfectly the new outlook of its style-conscious sixties customers.
