There’s a term in the motorcycle industry for when manufacturers spin up the new model year’s bikes despite that product seeing little or no functional changes. We call it “bold new graphics.” Well Triumph has found a way to take the underwhelming term and turn it on its head, making this year’s bold new graphics something to actually get excited about. Announced today, eight of Triumph’s modern classic Bonneville line will be released in a one-year-only special-edition Gold Line design.
Each edition of the new Gold Line will feature hand-painted pinstriping from Triumph’s expert paint shop. Many of them will come with unique accessory options to complement the overall design of the special-edition bikes.
This gold striping has been a staple of Triumph design for decades. I had a beautiful old 1974 Bonneville T140 and the gold line between the deep maroon paint and the white was an exceptional detail that always caught my eye.
