Description:
Triumph Bonneville is the name given to three motorcycle models from this notable British motorcycle marque. It is named after the Bonneville Salt Flats in the state of Utah, USA, where Triumph and other motorcycle companies made attempts on the world motorcycle speed records. All share a parallel-twin four-stroke engine configuration. The current version, produced since 2001 by the modern successor of the original company, is a completely redesigned and re-engineered evolution of the original design.

Since the arrival of the current 'Hinckley Bonneville' (produced in Hinckley), the earlier T120 and T140 (produced in Meriden) have been referred to as 'Meriden Bonnevilles', to more easily distinguish between the versions.

Domestically, however, the T140 remained the best-selling 750 cc motorcycle against more sophisticated Japanese and Italian opposition , picking up the prestigious Motor Cycle News Machine Of The Year award in 1979.
