For those curious about riding the 2006 Triumph Bonneville, it possesses a few surprises. Triumph has done an excellent job in maintaining the classic look of this bike – the original model was produced in 1959. The pop culture status of the Bonneville has been sustained for a half century, and after one ride on the 2006 model, it is easy to see why. This bike is maneuverable, relaxed, comfortable, quick, fast, and a host of adjectives that equate to supreme enjoyment when riding. Even at over 450 lbs., the Bonneville is quite agile, and able to accelerate quickly from a standstill. Working in and out of traffic in urban environments will be a task enjoyed with ease, and with its low profile lines, it is capable of lane splitting and easy parking, even in the most crowded cities.
