Bud Ekins Bonneville T120 and T100 now available to order


A legend to watch

In 2020, Triumph launched two very special editions of the iconic Bonneville T120 and T100 that celebrate the iconic name and legend of Bud Ekins.

A 1960s motorcycle icon, Bud was a professional Hollywood stuntman, top motocross and desert racer, and the rider who made arguably the most famous motorcycle film jump in history in the WWII film The Great Escape on behalf of his movie star friend and ISDT partner Steve McQueen.

These two new beautiful special editions feature a one-off Californian inspired Bud Ekins paint scheme and a range of dedicated special details and touches.

Now, for summer 2021 there’s £1,000 support too 🙂
