Following the introduction of the limited edition Street Twin Gold Line model, Triumph announced it is giving the rest of its modern classics the same treatment. Unlike the Street Twin, of which only 1,000 units were produced and promptly sold, the new Gold Line Edition models will be produced only for the 2022 model year and will not be limited to a specific number.
The eight models receiving a special edition Gold Line Edition are:
- Bonneville T100
- Bonneville T120
- Bonneville T120 Black
- Bonneville Bobber
- Bonneville Speedmaster
- Bonneville Street Scrambler
- the Scrambler 1200 XC
- the Scrambler 1200 XE
Each Gold Line model will come in a special color scheme edged with hand-painted gold pin-triping. The gold paint is specially formulated from a mix of powdered color and a cellulose lacquer. This gives it the right level of consistency for striping, as conventional paint is too thin for this type of brush work. The golden striping is applied, usually in one continuous stroke, by one of six skilled artisans. The paint is then sealed with a final coat of lacquer and signed with the artist’s initials.
Mechanically, the Gold Line Edition models are the same as the regular model, including the updates introduced earlier this year for the 2021 year. Depending on the model, the premium paint schemes add an additional $750 to $900 to the MSRP. The Gold Line models arrive in North American dealerships in December.
