'Legendary actor Steve McQueen was famous for his love of motorcycles. Produced in co-ordination with the Steve McQueen Estate, this Triumph Steve McQueen Edition motorcycle is inspired by one of his favourite and most famous Triumphs and is one of only 1100 produced for worldwide sale.' – Triumph Motorcycles.

Ever since the re-emergence of a newly revitalised Triumph in 1990, enthusiasts had been eagerly waiting the revival of the Bonneville brand, one of the most evocative names in motorcycling history. Ten years would elapse before Triumph felt ready to do so, having by then emphatically established its credentials as a builder of thoroughly modern motorcycles rivalling the best from Japan and Europe.

Triumph's design brief for the new Bonneville was to emulate the classic style of the late 1960s version while incorporating the best of modern technology in the engine, transmission, and running gear. The need to recapture the sound and feel of the original meant that the power unit had to be an air-cooled parallel twin with 360-degree crankshaft, while applying similar criteria to the cycle parts dictated wire-spoked wheels and a twin-shock rear end. At 790cc (initially) the new 8-valve engine was bigger than any preceding Bonneville, while a balancer shaft - something the original could have done with - was deemed essential to dampen vibration inherent in the traditional engine layout. The new Bonneville debuted to critical acclaim at Munich in 2001 and before long the concept had been expanded to include cruiser-style Bonneville America, super-sports Thruxton, and various other models such as the T100 and Steve McQueen.

The limited-edition Steve McQueen Bonneville was inspired by one of the most famous scenes in movie history, when Triumph-mounted McQueen attempts to jump the PoW camp's wire fence in The Great Escape (the stunt was actually performed by McQueen's great friend, Bud Ekins). Currently in the hands of its second owner, this example has covered only 818 miles since delivery and is presented in effectively 'as new' condition. MoT'd to March 2020, the machine is offered with a Triumph Certificate of Authenticity, SORN, and a V5C Registration Certificate.
