The Triumph Bonneville T120 is the classic retro-roadster with a 1200cc parallel twin that has been revised to reduce mass and rolling inertia, as well as to make the engine more efficient. The 1,200cc twin-cylinder parallel engine now develops 78 hp at 6550 rpm and 150 Nm at 3500 rpm. A new semi-digital instrument console with the Bonneville branding, standard cruise control and two driving modes were incorporated. The T120 and T120 Black weigh 7 kg less than the predecessors, thanks to lightweight aluminum rims. Both models are also equipped with double disc brakes with Brembo calipers.
