Triumph Bonneville T100 Steve McQueen Special Edition

Triumph_stevemcqueen

It's nearly Christmas, which means a screening of the Great Escape. You can try it for real with the Triumph Bonneville T100 Steve McQueen Special Edition – although we would strongly recommend against it.


Yes, this is a Steve McQueen bike. Not the original Triumph T6, but a new version of the vintage-style Triumph Bonneville T100, inspired by that iconic movie motorcycle. New tech meets classic looks.

So that's an 865cc parallel twin engine, which knocks out a full 67 horsepower at 43 miles per gallon. There are also dual-piston Nissin disc brakes mounted front and rear, fuel injection and five-speed manual gears.

In terms of looks, this limited edition bike has a military-style matt khaki-coloured livery, a stencil-style Triumph decal on the tank, the acctor’s signature on the side covers, a solo seat with a black luggage rack, black-bodied headlamp, wheel rims and hubs, handlebars, rear springs, mirrors and front mudguard supports, a rugged skid plate and a certificate of authenticity with each machine.

Just 1,100 sold worldwide, each individually-numbered and selling for £7,700.
