Triumph Bonneville T120 (2016 onwards)

The Triumph Bonneville T120 is a good example of a well-designed classic motorcycle. It features that iconic 1950s design that most Triumph bikes are known for and adds some cool modern features on top of that.

Not only is the bike stylish and nice to look at, but it’s also extremely reliable. The service intervals are 10,000 miles, which makes it one of the lowest-maintenance bikes in the category. The 1200cc parallel-twin engine is super-smooth and it has plenty of power for riding at maximum speeds.

The Bonneville T120 comes with an ABS system, traction control, heated grips and immobiliser as standard. Under the seat, you will find a hidden USB charger.

The build quality is excellent but the riding comfort could be better. Unfortunately, the bike is not very suitable for long rides.
