Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled its updated Modern Classics family for the 2019 model year, featuring new models, special editions, as well as a bonkers Moto2 race bike.
Triumph has gone full retro for 2018 EICMA. The British motorcycle manufacturer’s showcase this year was dominated by the Modern Classics. There are two new variants on offer: the Bonneville T120 Ace Edition and the T120 Diamond Edition, the latter of which is an homage to the original Bonnie which was launched in 1959. The Diamond Edition receives a new paint job with Union Jack livery and engine covers and panels finished in chrome. Only 900 units of the Diamond Edition will be made available worldwide.
In the technology department, Triumph launched its new TFT connectivity system, compatible with all Triumph models that feature TFT displays. It is capable of displaying turn-by-turn navigation by Google, Bluetooth telephony, music control, and GoPro controls. Triumph will start offering the system from January 2019 onwards.
Finally, Triumph also showcased the Moto2 test mule. The race bike is a glimpse of the forthcoming Daytona 765. The recently unveiled Scrambler 1200 XC and Scrambler XE were also on display at the Triumph pavilion. They will be launched worldwide in the second quarter of 2019.
