2020 Triumph Bonneville T120 / T120 Black

2020 Triumph Bonneville T120 & T120 Black

The 2020 Triumph Bonneville T120 and T120 Black are the continuation of the original Bonneville model that started production way back in 1959. The T120 packs a 1200cc parallel twin engine, producing 80 HP and 77 lbs-ft of torque mated to a 6 speed transmission.

The T120 has some very nice creature comforts as standard, such as heated grips, a center stand as well as a kickstand, a USB charging socket for a GPS or your phone, and all around LED lighting. There are also rider assists such as traction control, anti-wheelie control for if you crack it too wide open, and ABS to get you stopped in a hurry.

The T120 Black has all the features of the T120, except it comes in a blacked out paint scheme and with a rich color dark brown seat.

As well, there will often be limited, special, or rare editions based off the Bonneville T120 almost every year. In 2019, the Bud Etkins edition, the Ace edition, and the Diamond edition all had special paint jobs, features, and homages to the reason for their being. Unfortunately, all of those editions have sold out.

The 2020 Triumph Bonneville T120 starts at $11,850 US/$13,250 CDN. The 2020 Triumph Bonneville T120 Black starts at $12,350 US/$13,750 CDN.
