If the easy-going style of the regular Bonneville T100 is a bit too tame for you, we’ve created the mean ‘n’ moody Bonneville T100 Black. From its custom shop-style, black-rimmed spoke wheels past its black-cased engine with machined fin highlights to its black bars and mirrors, this is a bike that makes a statement without really trying
Of course it’s still a Bonneville at heart, with a soulful, fuel injected 865cc parallel twin engine and sweet-sounding peashooter exhausts, a commanding riding position and more than enough power for both newbie riders and those with more miles under their wheels.
Standard Features May Include:Bodywork
As you would expect from the bike’s name, the bodywork wears deep Jet Black paintwork.Engine
The Bonneville T100 Black has muscle to match its mean looks, as its 865cc parallel twin engine puts out a healthy 68PS. It also gives 68Nm of torque at its peak, with plenty available at low revs so it’s really user-friendly and more than punchy enough, both around town and on the open road. Clever electronic fuel injection means this engine pulls smoothly throughout the rev range, so you’ll always have something in reserve.
It wouldn’t be a Bonneville without a parallel-twin cylinder engine and this one’s a beauty. Its 865cc capacity makes it more powerful than Bonnevilles of old, but modern technology mean great versatility and economy too, while balance shafts leave just enough vibration to remind you that you are riding an all-time great. Of course it’s air-cooled, meaning there’s no radiator to block the view of this engineering icon.Frame
Great handling and a relaxing ride have always been Bonneville traits. Years of getting the basics right mean that we make bikes that are reassuringly easy to ride.Suspension
We wouldn’t want a bumpy road to spoil your ride, so we fit traditional, black-sprung twin shocks at the back that combine iconic style with modern performance, while up front, black, gaitered telescopic forks keep things well controlled.Brakes
We’ve matched the front and rear disc brakes to give a progressive, balanced braking performance that suits the Bonneville Black’s power and weight, giving the rider confidence and control.Handling
We’re not talking all show and no go with the Bonneville Black. Its tubular steel cradle frame may look old school, but clever design means that the engine combines with the frame to give the bike the extra stiffness that’s sure to put a smile on your face on every ride.Riding Position
Cool on city streets and relaxed on the open road, the Bonneville Black’s riding position is perfect for every ride. There’s plenty of space between the seat, footrests and ‘bars to be comfortable and the seat’s long enough to share the ride with a passenger.Exhaust
Hear it on the streets. Twin chrome exhaust pipes highlight the bike’s after-dark theme.Wheels
Classic spoke wheels wearing black rims and hubs complement the look and give precise handling.Seat
A classic “banana” seat, all in black of course, with a matching passenger grab rail.
