While this might look like a modified Triumph Bonneville T100, in reality it is the new Triumph Steve McQueen Edition. That’s right, Triumph has seemingly teamed up with Steve McQueen’s estate, and is making 1,100 Steve McQueen Edition motorcycles. Inspired by McQueen’s Triumph Trophy TR6, which was featured in the movie The Great Escape, the Triumph Steve McQueen Edition features what the British brand calls “a military-style matte khaki green livery” and sports a stencil-styled Triumph decal on the tank with a Steve McQueen signature on the bike’s side covers.
Other modifications include a solo seat (because real men ride alone), black luggage rack, a skid plate, and a smaller headlamp. Triumph has also blacked out many of the Bonneville’s components to add further effect to the transformation. Each of the 1,100 bikes will be numbered with a plaque, and will also come with a certificate of authenticity. Like the other Triumph models previewed today (Triumph Tiger Explorer & Triumph Speed Triple R), full details on the 2012 Triumph Steve McQueen Edition will be released at EICMA.
