Triumph Bonneville T100 Insurance

Triumph Bonneville T100

Triumph Bonneville T100 (T100) is the second most accessible motorcycle from the British bike maker in India. It derives its name from the maximum speed of its time 100mph or 160 kmph.

Design: 

  • T100 is the more premium version of Bonneville.
  • Bike screams retro in its styling. It has been given classic touches all over bringing out the memories of the old glory days.
  • Bonneville has existed since 1959 & that design is clearly visible in the bike’s styling with retro laid back handle bars, straight seat, FI system designed like carburettors, air cooled designed engine.
  • The bike comes in four colour schemes, Intense Orange/Jet Black, Caspian Blue/Jet Black, Fusion white/Aurum Gold, Jet Black/Cranberry Red.
  • Bike’s dimensions are 2230 mm x 740 mm x 1100 mm (L x W x H) 

Power & Performance:

T100 is powered by 865cc parallel twin engine. The power delivery is linear on T100 with torque kicking in from as low as 1800RPM all the way up to redline. Vibrations only make their presence felt once past 5000RPM. The gearing is on the taller side, however, due to the even spread of torque changing gears is something which is not very necessary on this bike.

Braking & Handling:

T100 handles really well for a bike of this size. The stability on both highways & long sweeping twisties is impeccable. Triumph has tuned the suspension setup well for Indian roads & that feels apparent once you get on the saddle. T100 has 41mm telescopic forks in the front & twin shock absorbers at the rear. It rides on 100/90 19’ front & 130/80 17’ rear wheels. T100 runs on Metzeler tyres & they offer phenomenal grip. Front tyre being of thin profile allows for easy manoeuvrability in traffic or on highways.

  • The seat on T100 is really big but feels a little hard for longer rides.
  • T100 gets a 310mm disc brake in front & a single 255mm disc at the rear.
  • As the bike is all about retro styling it sadly misses out on ABS & Traction Control system.

What Insurance cover to opt for:

T100 is one of the sweetest offering from Triumph. With its retro charms & beautiful design it becomes a thief magnet. Also, being a CKD the parts are all imported from Britain & that makes it a costly bike to keep.

  • 0% depreciation insurance will help in keeping your wallet heavy in case of any slip or fall.
  • T100 is an attention magnet. That is why it’s a good idea to have an insurance that gives you complete cover from theft, vandalism.
  • Always prefer an insurance that gives you cashless benefit.
