Bud Ekins T120



General Information



Bud Ekins was a top motocross and desert racer, Hollywood stuntman, and one of Steve McQueen’s closest friends and riding partners - a genuine motorcycle legend. Triumph’s biggest 1960’s American dealer, based in Sherman Oaks California, Bud Ekins’ name is celebrated by Triumph with the iconic Bonneville T120, a perfect balance of style, performance, authenticity and 1200cc Bonneville twin engine power.

Staying faithful to the bike’s evocative heritage, the T120’s power plant delivers a smooth and responsive ride.

With its beautiful Californian inspired paint scheme, and range of dedicated special details and touches, this unique special edition T120 Bonneville motorcycle is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the enthusiasm, attitude, and dedication of one of the world’s greatest motorcycling icons.

With all the attitude, style and silhouette of our original ’59 Bonneville, this new beautiful special edition T120 celebrates the incredible life and achievements of American desert racer, stunt rider and motorcycling icon Bud Ekins.
