Vintage Motorcycle Days at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, is finally here, and we learned today that VMD will also host the launch of the new limited edition 50th Anniversary Triumph Bonneville.

The press release states: “Based on the standard Bonneville T100, the 50th Anniversary pays homage to its 1959 namesake with a unique paint scheme. Just as the “Tangerine Dream” livery of 1959 created a stir in the motorcycle universe, the 2009 colors Meriden Blue and Exotic Orange will make their mark on history again. Only 650 Bonneville T100 50th Anniversary edition bikes will be produced, a testament to the engine capacity of the original Bonneville. Each unit will be individually numbered and identified with a commemorative brass badge on the handlebar clamp.”

Looks neat to us! Going to VMD? Be sure to see it in person!– Landon Hall
