Steve McQueen Edition Triumph Bonneville

I don’t think there’s one automobile enthusiast who wouldn’t want to go back in time and grab a beer with Steve McQueen. I mean let’s face it, the guy was not only an automotive legend, but he had the capacity to make even the un-coolest of vehicles cool just by associating with them. Cars, motorcycles, trucks… it didn’t matter, cause’ if it had the McQueen stamp of approval, it was a hit. The King of Cool has now been gone for more than 30 years, and yet companies are still using his likeness to make money. Triumph motorcycles for example is getting ready to release a Steve McQueen edition Bonneville motorcycle that will have a limited 1100 chassis run. The bike pays homage to the Triumph motorcycle that McQueen rode in “The Great Escape”. Visual queues will include matte military green paint, a solo-seat, luggage rack and a reproduction signature of McQueen on the bikes chassis. The bike is set to be released at the EICMA trade show in Milan next month so stay tuned for more info.
