2012 Triumph Bonneville SE Review

Take a Bonneville. Spec place. Enjoy. The most famous name of the bike. A legend. More than 50 years of engineering excellence. A modern interpretation of an authentic "real" bike. This iconic symbol of rebellion and independence is even more attractive thanks to its specifications modern, low seat height, fuel-injected 865cc lightweight 17-inch alloys for the treatment of even sharper. SE adds that little extra: tachometer and speedometer matching, polished engine covers and traditional chrome tank badge. Optional two-tone paint handpainted Pinstripe.

Bonneville, it takes all the features of the standard Bonneville and adds a higher specification for the most demanding rider.

Engine covers in polished aluminum and chrome tank markings to Bonneville SE, which seems to reward while the addition of a tachometer allows the rider a perfect selection of the speed of the engine running. There is also a choice of traditional two-tone paint options for hand-painted pinstriping, pilots who want the most retro of the cavalry.

Otherwise Bonneville SE preserves all that is good on the standard model, with its 17 "alloy wheels, megaphone silencers, screens short and low seat height for maximum availability and minimum fuss.
