In the 800cc classical motorcycles class, the Triumph Bonneville T100 will fight with other classical bikes (with the same engine specs) from other brands such as W800 bike from Kawasaki, I actually want to post more about 800cc classical bike comparison but I don't have many times, don't worry I will try to give the best for my blog readers later. So guys, if you want to try the classical retro bike from Triumph brand, the 2012 Triumph Bonneville T100 may perfect for you, the black colors looks so great and elegant but if you're the young riders, I thing the Cranberry colors is not bad, the engine and power of 2012 Triumph Bonneville T100 also still friendly for new riders, the 68PS of max power is still comfortable for many riders. Good luck and enjoy with your classic bikes.
