2015 Triumph Bonneville Special Editions | FIRST LOOK

Two ways to celebrate Triumph’s heritage: Bonneville Newchurch Special Edition and Bonneville T214 Limited Edition

Triumph has dipped a brush into the special-edition paint can and come up with a couple of limited-edition models based on the popular Bonneville platform.

2015 Bonneville Newchurch Special Edition

The first is the Bonneville Newchurch, named after a town in Austria called Neukirchen. It’s the site of the annual Tridays, a week-long celebration of all things Triumph, in acknowledgement of which the town temporarily Anglicizes its name to Newchurch. The Bonneville Newchurch Special Edition gets a new, contemporary paint scheme, a new low-profile seat, and black detailing. The gas tank is hand-painted and features the new Triumph logo; available colors are Cranberry Red/Pure White or Sapphire Blue Pure White, each featuring hand-painted black detailing.

The fenders, headlamp shell, handlebar, mirrors, and shock springs are blacked out, and all-black seven-spoke cast wheels come with a hand-painted pinstripe coachline. The Newchurch will be available in April 2015 at an MSRP of $8699.

The second new Bonneville, the T214, celebrates a speed record set at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1956 by Johnny Allen aboard a Triumph-powered streamliner called the Texas Cee-Gar. The T214 designation is inspired by Allen’s two-way average speed of 214.4 mph. (Moto trivia side note: The now-classic 1959 Triumph Bonneville was named in tribute to the Texas Cee-Gar team’s record-setting efforts.)

The T214 Limited Edition is limited to 1000 units worldwide. Its hand-painted Caspian Blue/Pure White color scheme, with red and white checker detailing, echoes that of the Texas Cee-Gar. The blue front fender has the star motif featured on the original streamliner. Other special touches include a shortened rear fender; blacked-out wheel rims, handlebar, and rear shock springs; and a seat with red stitching.

The T214 will be on showroom floors in November of this year, with an MSRP of $9999.
