Triumph Unveils Bonneville T120 Elvis Presley Limited Edition

With Elvis-inspired details and only 925 available worldwide, this Bonneville offers fans a piece of music and motorcycle legend.

Celebrating Elvis and the fascinating story of his “Memphis Mafia” Bonnevilles, Triumph Motorcycles has unveiled a stunning T120 Elvis Presley Limited Edition. Combining authentic style, performance and modern capabilities with a beautifully detailed design, this distinctive T120 takes styling cues from Elvis’ iconic 1968 “Comeback Special” performance.

Unmistakable Elvis gold lettering representing set lights, along with Elvis Presley’s signature, prominently feature on the tank and side panels. Die-hard fans will find fascinating Elvis-themed details on the bike, including a discreet “Taking Care of Business in a Flash” emblem, a personal mantra that captured his work ethic, featured on the necklace given to each member of his Memphis Mafia.

The rich Carnival Red color scheme was inspired by the J Daar custom Bonneville created to raise money for the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation in 2023. Just like the Bonneville T120 TT featured in the comedy Western “Stay Away Joe” and the Bonnevilles gifted to the Memphis Mafia in 1965, the modern T120 retains the iconic Bonneville DNA, timeless silhouette and distinctive sculpted tank that so impressed Elvis.

Bonneville tank stripes in Aluminum Silver beautifully complement the striped mudguards, accentuated by hand-painted gold line detailing. A deep, high-quality chrome finish has been applied to carefully selected parts, including the sweeping twin skin exhaust with classic peashooter silencers, adding lustrous detail to this iconic model.

This special collaboration offers motorcycle and music fans an unprecedented opportunity to own a piece of the Elvis and Triumph legend. Limited to 925 worldwide, the bikes feature a special numbered handlebar clamp with a laser-etched Elvis Presley signature, and each one will be presented with a Sony gold disc in an exclusive Elvis Presley and Triumph Motorcycles record sleeve, encasing a bespoke certificate of authenticity signed by Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor and Jamie Salter, founder, chairman and CEO of ABG, Elvis Presley Enterprises.

“It’s been incredible to see the customer reaction to the custom Bonneville that raised so much for charity earlier this year, and our search for the Memphis Mafia Bonnevilles has unearthed wonderful glimpses into the past,” said Triumph Chief Commercial Officer Paul Stroud. “With so much interest in the story so far, we’re confident our passionate customers will be thrilled at the chance to own this magnificent tribute to the biggest selling solo artist in history when it arrives in dealerships in July.”

Memphis Mafia Bonnevilles

Elvis’ introduction to Triumph Motorcycles was in 1965 while taking a break from filming and spending time with his closest friends, known as the ‘Memphis Mafia,’ at his Bel Air home. Friend Jerry Schilling had ordered a new Triumph T120 Bonneville, and Elvis took it for a ride around the neighborhood. Elvis was impressed, and when he returned, he told his transportation manager, Alan Fortis, to “order one for all the guys, but it has to be tonight!” Motorcycle dealers Bill Robertson & Sons managed to deliver seven Triumphs that night — two more followed soon after — and Elvis and his friends rode together around Bel Air late into the evening, only stopping when neighbors called the police to complain.

Triumph is on the hunt to track down the Bonnevilles, with several leads already adding to the dossier of evidence. One customer came forward to share that she was once the proud owner of Jerry Schilling’s Bonneville and still has a registration document to prove it. Sadly, the bike, now repainted pink, had been sold years ago, but with the bike’s VIN confirmed, the search continues. Customers with any information relating to these bikes are asked to email the details to [email protected].
