"The famous Triumph Bonneville Road Sports twin carburettor motorcycle is the acknowledged choice of American riders who demand the finest all-round performance and handling. For 1966 the Bonneville features a new sporting look, with small slim gas tank, modern compact tail light assembly and polished stainless-steel fenders. Performance has been further increased, yet it still retains the reliability required by road riders under all conditions." - Triumph Motorcycle Company.

The USA had long been Triumph's most important export market, and to cater for local tastes T120R and T120C versions of the Bonneville were offered there, the former having a more raised handlebar when compared to its European counterpart while the latter catered for the American rider's passion for off-road motorcycling.

Almost certainly imported from the USA, this 1968 T120R Bonneville was first registered in the UK on 1st January 1992. Purchased from a local auction house, it has covered a (believed) 1 mile since restoration and would respond well to detailing. It should be noted that the machine has not been used for the last 18 months and will require re-commissioning before returning to the road. Offered with an HPI check and a V5C Registration Certificate.
