Wraps Off the Triumph Gold Line-Up

For those who love genuine gold or the colour of gold, Triumph has recently taken wraps off the limited edition Gold line-up

British motorcycle Triumph has taken wraps off the limited edition Gold line-up; a series which comprises the T100, Street Scrambler, Speedmaster, Bobber, T120, and T120 Black models. The Gold line-up comprises these motorcycles with hand-painted gold lines but mechanically, nothing is changed. In India, the Gold line-up is likely to reach in 2022. 

Triumph shared a press release that read, “Many of the new Gold Line Edition designs start with a two-colour base scheme, where the joining point between the two colours is flattened down. The gold line is then carefully hand-applied, usually in one continuous stroke by the artist, using a very specialised soft-bristled sword-liner brush. Once the pinstripe is in place, it’s sealed against the elements with a final clear coat of lacquer.”

“Just like every hand-lined Triumph, the artist adds the finishing detail to each Gold Line Edition by signing their work with their initials, providing a personal touch that makes every hand-painted Triumph special,” the company further added.

T-100- The T-100 is a street-focused cruiser motorcycle from Triumph that is powered by a 900cc, liquid-cooled, eight-valve, SOHC, 270° crank angle parallel-twin engine tuned to produce a peak power of 64.1hp at 7,400rpm and a massive torque of 80Nm at 3,750rpm. The normal edition of the T-100 is sold at INR 9.49 lakh.

Street Scrambler- A street motorcycle with the DNA of a scrambler, the Street Scrambler draws power from a 900cc, liquid-cooled, eight-valve, SOHC, 270° crank angle parallel-twin unit. The same engine is found on the T-100 and therefore, it generates the same power and torque figures of 64.1hp and 80Nm, respectively. The price tag of the Street Scrambler is 9.35-95 lakh.

Bonneville Speedmaster and Bobber- Both the motorcycles are the same when it comes to engine configurations because the two motorcycles derive their power from a 1,200cc, liquid-cooled, eight-valve, SOHC, 270° crank angle parallel twin powertrain that makes 76.9hp at 6,100rpm of power and 106Nm at 4,000rpm of peak torque. So, what is the difference between the two? While the Speedmaster is a cruiser, the Bobber is a bobber with a single-seat setup. When it comes to price tags, both are sold at around 12 lakh.

Last but not the least, Triumph has not disclosed the price of the Gold line-up at the moment, but we expect all the mentioned motorcycles to receive a hike of around INR 20,000.
