790cc Triumph Bonneville 800


The 790cc Triumph Bonneville was introduced in 2001. Marketed as a Bonneville 800, it was long awaited and became an instant success. Since then, the Hinckley factory has produced numerous updates of this modern classic. But this is the original "Hinckley bike" that brought the Bonneville back into the modern world.
