Triumph has made a few updates to their classic lineup (Bonneville, Scrambler, Thruxton) for 2014, but the tweaks are all minor.

The T100, Thruxton and base Bonnie all get new mufflers as well.

The Bonneville motor gets refined visually; the oil cooler lines are blacked out for camouflage, and the head has new machined cooling fins. There’s a blacked-out grab bar behind the seat now, and the seat itself has been re-designed with different packing material to supposedly offer more comfort. The engine remains the same, but new mufflers are supposed to offer a beefier exhaust note – at least you’ll sound faster …

Of course, Triumph’s other bikes in their classic lineup are all based off the Bonneville, so they get the same changes to machining on the motor’s head, as well as the blacked-out oil cooler lines. The T100 Bonnie also gets a chrome grab rail and chain guard, but for everyone who likes Suzuki’s new blacked-out B.O.S.S. cruisers or Harley-Davidson’s Sportster Iron, there’s a Bonneville counterpart, the T100 Black, with black rims, hubs, handlebars, motor, shock springs, etc …

The T100 models also get the same exhaust upgrade as the base Bonneville, as does the cafe racer Thruxton.

Thanks to its high pipes, the Scrambler doesn’t see any changes to the exhaust; the only difference for the 2014 model will be a few blacked-out parts (beside the cosmetic changes to the powerplant, the Scrambler also gets a blacked-out brake reservoir cover, rims, hubs, and more).

There’ll be new paint available for the machines for 2014 as well; the company hasn’t announced any changes to Canadian pricing yet.
