Triumph Bonneville T120 Overview

This is a refined bike with great styling and a smooth motor. It’s also comfortable: a very practical retro bike indeed. We love this bike, mainly because of how it looks, but it does pack a punch on the road too.

Cornering isn’t great on this bike, but it still handles well enough. Ground clearance is quite limited but the suspension is soft. The engine feels great as you pull away. It has a new parallel twin motor which may be only 1200cc, but as long as the rev counter is showing more than 2000rpm it pulls you forward really nicely. There are virtually no vibrations!

What’s great about this bike is the look of it. There has been a huge amount of time spent on the styling and if you stand back and admire this bike, you can’t help but smile. The optional two-tone paint is worth the extra money if you’re up for it, too.

Coming standard with this bike is ABS, traction control and heated grips. The dash is packed with lots of useful information, including a fuel range and a gear position indicator.

Comfort
Not bad for comfort. Good riding position, comfortable seat.
Ride Quality
I was used to a Harley Softail Deluxe before this so it feels light to me! Shocks are a bit bouncy on some road surfaces but I can live with that. Corners really well. Amazing to be able to lean over and not produce sparks!
Build Quality & Reliability
Seems very well built
Engine Rating
Very powerful, torquey engine which is a pleasure to use
Brake Rating
Very good brakes. ABS work a treat, though I've only tested it out. never had to use it in earnest! Tyres grip well.
Running Cost
Front brake occasionally makes a moaning sound which is a bit off-putting.
