Wahid Ooi Abdullah April 21,2016
For fans of Triumph's new 1,200cc modern classic motorcycles in Malaysia, the wait has just ended.

Fast Bikes Sdn. Bhd., as the Exclusive Official Distributor of Triumph Motorcycles in Malaysia, is proud to officially announce the availability and pricing for the all-new 2016 Triumph Bonneville range.

The three new 1,200cc motorcycles: the Triumph Bonneville T120, the Bonneville T120 Black and also the flagship modern classic Thruxton R will join the recently available 900cc Triumph Street Twin range.

"Triumph Malaysia are excited about the introduction and immediate availability of the new Triumph modern classic motorcycle range in our market," said Fast Bikes Sdn Bhd Chief Operating Officer (COO) Dato' Razak Al-Malique Hussain.

He said the latest addition of the new 1,200cc Triumph modern classic range itself is a story of the most famous name and distinctive silhouette in motorcycling: the Triumph Bonneville.


Razak Al-Malique said the entry of Triumph Motorcycles' newest range was a timely addition to the domestic motorcycle market as the interest and appeal of modern classic motorcycles is growing and evolving quickly.

"From the rider’s perspective, they want beautiful motorcycles with real character and traditional values, combined with modern levels of refinement and capability," he said.

Razak Al-Malique said each of the 1,200cc models has a different chassis design and distinct engine, and none shares a single component with the previous air-cooled Bonneville range.

"The T120 Black is like the T120 but with different styling detail, and the highly-awaited Thruxton R, which is a higher-spec version of the Thruxton features Brembo monobloc brake calipers, Showa big piston forks, "Ohlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres," he explained.

The timeless style and iconic character of the original 1959 model is reborn in the classy and authentic Bonneville T120 and the Bonneville T120 Black.


Both are crafted to the highest standard of detailing, quality and finish, and matched by the capability and performance of a truly modern classic. Powered by the all-new Bonneville 1,200cc high torque engine and fed by beautiful, authentically styled, twin throttle bodies.

The new 98bhp Thruxton R is the top of the range model. With genuine poise, power and performance, it is the ultimate modern classic caf'e racer. The flagship model for Triumph's modern classic range is beautifully imposing, with power, braking, performance and handling to live up to the legendary namesake.


Triumph's all-new 1,200cc high torque engine of the Bonneville T120 and T120 Black is built specifically for the modern classic riding style. It produces a massive peak torque figure of 105Nm at a low 3,100 rpm - more than 54% higher than the previous generation T100.

For the game-changing 1,200cc high power Thruxton R engine, it has immediate, exciting power delivery and a massive peak torque figure of 112Nm at 4,950 rpm - an amazing 62% higher than the previous generation Thruxton.

The new modern classic range comes with truly modern capability, including the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection system, and liquid cooling that improves fuel economy. In addition, the 1,200’s all feature rider modes for enhanced responsiveness and control.


The T120 comes in black, red, red and silver or black and white. The T120 Black comes in black or Matt Graphite and features exclusive styling details, including a dark brown seat and black rims, grab-rail and exhaust.


Pricing for both the Bonneville T120 and Bonneville T120 Black is at RM79,900.00 without insurance and on-the-road costs.

The Thruxton R - named after the famous 500-mile Thruxton endurance race series - comes with styling details such as a Monza-style filler cap, up-swept exhausts, and aluminium bar-end mirrors. As well as higher-spec brakes and suspension, the Thruxton R has a polished top yoke, aluminium tank strap and clear anodised aluminium swing-arm.

The Thruxton R comes in red or silver. It is priced at RM91,900.00 without insurance and on-the-road costs.
