For several decades Triumph's 'twin' engine design by Edward Turner dictated the direction of the whole motorcycle industry. For many enthusiasts the best twin of all time is the Bonneville. No classic bike has wider appeal, both in the UK and USA, and the continuing appeal of the breed is greatly enhanced by the modern bikes sold under the Bonneville name. This new edition features the major evolutions of the model since 2000, when Steve Wilson's highly respected book was first published in Haynes' "Great Bikes" Series.
Expert study of the machine and the men who helped make the Bonnie a motorcycle icon. Spearhead of a successful export drive, a winning production racer and the top 'street fighter' of its day, the Bonnie has a special place in the hearts of motorcyclists worldwide. Racing and commemorative specials. Covers all models and variants from launch in 1958 to the 2007 Bonneville Black. Full technical specifications. Glorious colour photographs including many published here for the first time.
