Produced by Triumph Engineering first in 1959, the T120 model was named Bonneville as a tribute to a speed record set by an Texan biker Johnny Allen (this record was not recognized by Federation Internationale Motorcycliste, and Triumph even fought on his behalf in the courts).
Allen powered his speed vehicle, “Cee-Gar” with the engine of a modified Triumph Thunderbird 650 cc engine that consumed a fuel mix of 80% methanol and 20% nitromethane. This vehicle on 6th September, 1956 acheived a speed of 345 km/hr at the Bonneville Salt Flats in USA.
Produced during the years 1959-1975, the Triumph Bonneville T120 had a 650 cc air-cooled engine. The bike soon became so popular that they were exported abroad in large numbers. At first, the American public did not accept this model but after passage of some time, the Bonneville was sold in large numbers.
This large 1:6 scale model by VMB*, is an exact rendition of a Triumph Bonneville sold in USA.
* Dutch brand, VMB is now closed and there will be no further reproductions of this motorcycle. With time, VMB made collectibles will grow in demand and have a very high collectible value.
