There is an unmistakable Britishness about this classy, classic twin. And there’s also an unmistakable Newness about this one. With just 523 miles on the clock, this bike essentially is new! It looks like it was uncrated yesterday. What an excellent opportunity to grab the epitome of classic Brit-cruiser machinery — in as good as new condition — but with a more affordable ticket price.
The Triumph Bonneville has a very dignified history, and it was always Triumph’s best selling model. So in creating a replica such as this one, the name deserved to be treated with respect. While the factory took extraordinary steps to keep this ride as old school as possible, the designers knew where to draw the line. This bike has a modern mill that cranks out 80 ponies and over 77 pounds of grunt with ride-by-wire throttle and traction control. There’s a liquid-cooled engine here, yet functional cooling fins lend it a classic look while carrying away a certain amount of waste heat. The radiator is even blacked out to be as inconspicuous as possible. Of course, Triumph had to use fuel injection to meet performance and emissions demands, but the designers built throttle bodies that look like the old-fashioned, mechanical-slide carburetors used back in the day. This bike even has ABS! The result of all this design effort is a technically modern ride but with a very satisfying retro curb appeal. Triumph did a great job with this motorcycle.
We turned the bike over to our service team so they could give it a complete 38-point pre-purchase inspection. There were no flaws or mechanical gremlins of any kind to report. This bike runs perfectly. We found that it lacked DOT required reflectors on the front forks, so we installed new ones. The bike then passed MD State Inspection without a hitch and is now ready to roll. We performed a basic break-in service/oil change on the bike, however there is still a maintenance-alert light glowing the instrument cluster. This light can only be switched off by an authorized Triumph dealer, and we would advise a new owner to visit a dealer anyway — after first putting a few thousand miles on it, of course. We also installed a Battery Tender charging harness on this bike, which is something every motorcycle should have. And we filled its Pirelli Phantom Sport tires with nitrogen to help increase performance and longevity. This bike is cleared for take-off!
There’s not much to say about the cosmetic condition of this gorgeous, Jet Phantom Black pre-owned Triumph. What would you expect from a bike that has barely been ridden? It is flawless, and especially after our in-house professional detailer did his magic, this bike probably looks better than most of the brand new ones sitting in dealer’s showrooms.
