Triumph’s Bonneville and its single-carbed sibling, the TR6, are two of the most revered models in all of motorcycling. Distinguished by their handsome lines and pace-setting performance, the Bonneville and Tiger ruled the streets and race tracks from their introduction in the late 1950s through Triumph’s golden age in the 1960s. Devotion to the marque remained strong even as the sun slowly set on the company’s fortunes in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The original Triumph’s demise in 1983 simply served to cement the legendary status of its long-lived top guns, the Bonneville and TR6.
