Triumph has created a brace of special editions as part of its Spirit of 59 campaign. Based on the Bonneville T100 and T120 models, Triumph is making just 59 of each, purely for the UK market.
The campaign itself harks back to the 1959 launch of the Bonneville and has already seen Triumph create one-off custom versions of the Thruxton R, Bobber Black and T120. British contemporary artist D*Face helped create the machines. But these are the first limited production models in the Spirit of 59 line.
The 1200cc T120 Spirit of 59 gets blue and orange paintwork on the tank and mudguards, with black side panels. The smaller 900cc T100 model also features blue and orange, but on a white background.
Anyone buying the bikes will automatically enter a draw to win a matching Knight White helmet from Hedon’s Hedonist range. Meanwhile, anyone test-riding a Triumph Modern Classic will get the chance to win a Spirit of 59 painted fuel tank.
Paul Lilly, General Manager, Triumph Motorcycles UK & Ireland, said:
“The Spirit of ’59 campaign is a great way to celebrate Triumph’s iconic heritage. Styled to conjure memories of the iconic ’59 Bonneville, the special edition motorcycles hark back to a defining era in our history. We can’t wait to see the positive reaction when they hit showrooms across the UK.”
