The story of the Triumph Bonneville T120 motorcycle
The plain facts:
- The Triumph Bonneville T120 was launched in 1959 to commemorate Texan racer Johnny Allen and his team setting the 1956 world motorcycle land speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
- The original bike continued to be built until 1973.
And some rather more colourful, esoteric little snippets for the real enthusiast…
- Johnny Allen and his team set the 1956 world motorcycle land speed record with a spectacular average speed of 214.17 mph.
- The Triumph Bonneville T120 was an instant success in the US – not only because its popularity with film stars massively boosted its image and appeal, but because it offered a reliable, cost-effective means of transport at a time before car ownership was widely affordable.
- In the 1969 Isle of Man TT, Malcolm Uphill averaged 100 mph around the Mountain Course on a Bonneville.
- A 21st century incarnation of the T120 has recently been introduced by Triumph
