The Triumph Bonneville has been one of motorcycling’s most enduring British icons. The name comes from the Utah salt flats, where a streamlined twin-cylinder Triumph captured the World Motorcycle Speed Record in 1956. In 1959, the first Bonneville, the T120, appeared, and the Bonneville name would remain a revered badge of motorcycling honor for the following three decades. This elegant, picture-lavish book, featuring Bonnevilles specially photographed in a studio setting, pays tribute by showing all the classic models in exquisite photographic detail, accompanied by expert commentary. A visual feast for all Bonneville enthusiasts.
