2019 Triumph Bonneville T120 Black


Bonneville T120 Black



Moody, mean and full of attitude, the Bonneville T120 Black has real pedigree, presence and performance.

It delivers all the iconic character, quality, and capability of the Bonneville T120 – then takes it to a new level with attitude, individuality and style, from blacked-out wheel rims and a black grab rail, to its midnight engine finish. When combined with a stitched, dark brown seat and black twin-skinned peashooter exhausts – the result is a motorbike that’s pure Triumph with a darker side.

The ride is equally as stunning. It shares the Bonneville T120’s dedicated chassis and suspension set-up, ABS, ride-by-wire, traction control, torque-assist clutch, two riding modes, heated grips, and liquid cooling for better fuel economy. It comes together to create a totally confident, relaxed and engaging ride – just the ticket for darting around town or a two-week tour, on your own or two-up.
