Triumph donate Jubilee Bonneville

IT’S not every day you see former Prime Minister John Major sat on a Triumph with Triumph’s chairman Lord Digby Jones, so make the most of this picture.

The reason? To celebrate 60 years of the Queen’s reign Triumph has donated a limited-edition Diamond Jubilee Bonneville to the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust as a mark of gratitude for her Majesty’s hard work as Head of the Commonwealth over the past 60 years. The bike will be auctioned to raise funds for the trust.

Just 60 Diamond Jubilee Bonnevilles will be built and they all feature special paintwork based around the Union Jack.

Lord Digby Jones, Chairman of Triumph Motorcycles, said: “The Diamond Jubilee Trust is doing tremendous work across the Commonwealth and as a British manufacturer, we felt that we should be supporting its work.  As Britain’s largest motorcycle producer, we felt the most fitting way to support the Trust would be to donate a limited edition model designed specifically to celebrate the Queen’s 60 years.”
