Triumph Bonneville Insurance

Triumph Bonneville 

Triumph Bonneville is the most accessible motorcycle from the British automaker in India. It is the bike that allows new users to enter the Triumph brand. Since the time Triumph showed its intentions to enter India it certainly took a lot of time to get to the showrooms but as they say the wait was certainly worth it.

Design: 

  • Bonneville is probably one of the best looking retro bikes out there in India.
  • Triumph has even added fake carburettor bodies that hide the FI pipes.
  • As with all Triumph bikes, fit & finish levels are extremely high.
  • The bike comes in three color scheme, Lunar Silver, Phantom Black & Sapphire Blue/Crystal While.
  • Bike’s dimensions are 2115 mm x 790 mm x 1130 mm (L x W x H)

Power & Performance:

Bonneville is powered by 865cc parallel twin engine. The power delivery is brisk on Bonneville with crisp response from the word go. For a 800cc+ engine it is an easy bike to live with. There is plenty of power from lower down & mid-range where this bike really excels. Vibrations only kick in when doing high revs in each gear.

Braking & Handling:

Bonneville handles well for a bike of this size. But don’t expect it to carve corners anytime soon! Straight highways, long sweeping corners are handled pretty well. Aided by a good suspension setup the Bonneville handles our roads rather well. Bike has 41mm telescopic forks in the front & twin shock absorbers at the rear. It rides on 110/70 17’ front & 130/80 17’ rear wheels.

  • The seat on Bonneville is really big & comfortable. However, rides of anything more than a couple of hours is going to make your butt sore.
  • Bonneville 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 Constrol system.

What Insurance cover to opt for:

Bonneville might be the cheapest option from Triumph but its maintenance is costly. Being a CKD the parts are all imported from Britain & that makes it a costly bike to keep.

  • 0% depreciation insurance goes a long way in keeping the repair bills down in case of a fall.
  • Bonneville is an attention magnet as it looks absolutely stunning. That is why it is a good idea to have an insurance that gives you complete cover from theft.
  • Always prefer an insurance that gives you cashless benefit.
