The Bonneville was put into production at Meriden on the 4th September 1958 and quietly launched in November at the 1958 Earls Court show. Today Triumph has a complete range using and celebrating the Bonneville name and with variants still being launched, 2018 will be a great year of Triumph & Celebration!
Bonneville 60 will include many examples of Bonneville’s stretching back to that 1st production run. Many side merchandise stands, bringing a chic cafe, Ton up style scene where you can smell the fuel additives and feel the leather. A once in a decade event that brings a great mix of iconic motorcycles of the 20th century to today’s retro-classic- modern Bonneville’s to a wonderful venue that’s not too big with great road links within a classic setting.
