Recently Triumph Motorcycles introduced the Steve McQueen Limited Edition Bonneville T-100 motorcycle. The motorcycle has skid plate, matt khaki and black livery which makes the bike look much like a World War II motorcycle. Also note how the Triumph name is stenciled onto the side of the gas tank.
Triumph’s New Steve McQueen Limited Edition Bonneville
This look is based on the Triumph TR6 motorcycle that McQueen rode in the movie “The Great Escape”. Many people will remember the scene in the movie when McQueen’s riding buddy and motorcycle stunt double, Bud Ekins, attempted to jump over a barbed wire fence to complete his escape from a German prisoner of war camp.

The Steve McQueen Triumph Bonneville will be a limited production motorcycle with only a total of 1,100 bikes scheduled to be built. Of this total 345 bikes will be imported into the USA where they will have a suggested sale price of $9,999.
The style of this bike takes some getting used to. Many buyers will like the exclusivity of this bike, but I prefer a little more chrome bling on a motorcycle.
