Triumph is offering a new line of factory custom-style machines for 2022—the Gold Line. Several machines from Triumph’s Bonneville and Scrambler series get the treatment.
The factory custom work begins with a specialized base paint scheme, with most bikes getting a two-tone finish. Then, Triumph hand-paints a gold accent line between, with the pinstripe sealed with a lacquer clear coat. Each bike sees the artist sign their work with their initials, meaning no two bikes are the exact same, although these machines do not come with a certificate of authenticity or any sort of series numbering (which would have driven the price up, says Triumph).
This finish will only be available for vintage-styled bikes, at least for now. Triumph will offer its Street Scrambler, Scrambler 1200 XE, Scrambler 1200 XC, Bobber, Bonneville, T120, T120 Black and T100 models in the Gold Line. Chances are, most ADV enthusiasts and naked bike owners are not going to be too upset by that.
The changes to these bikes are only skin-deep; again, adding mechanical change-ups would drive the price up higher. Several of these machines do have special-edition accessories available, though, such as specially-matched flyscreens or mudguards.
Triumph says all these bikes are coming to Canada for December of 2021, so availability is just around the corner. MSRPs are as follows: T100 Gold Line Edition, $12,500; Street Scrambler Gold Line Edition, $13,450; Scrambler 1200 XC Gold Line Edition, $16,300; Scrambler 1200 XE Gold Line Edition, $17,450; Bonneville T120 Gold Line Edition, $14,500; Bonneville T120 Black Gold Line Edition, $14,500; Bonneville Speedmaster Gold Line Edition, $16,050; Bonneville Bobber Black Gold Line Edition, $16,050. Pricing for these bikes is very close to the standard models, then! See more details and specs at triumph-motorcycles.ca.
