Triumph Bonneville Accessories Project

Triumph and the UK Birmingham Institute of Art & Design teamed up to ask students to create functional objects with parts from a Bonneville T100.

But first, don’t scream: no motorcycle life was scarified because parts were given by the factory.

The announced winner was Nick Orme for his design of a corkscrew conceived from a Bonneville grip, brake lever and master cylinder. Stuart Wood, Chief Engineer at Triumph and one of the judges, said “We were impressed with all of the entries but Nick’s design really stood out. His corkscrew is an innovative use of motorcycle parts that creates a lifestyle product we could really see customers buying.” I also like the turn table and kitchen scales.

    This is great. There should be more of this. Students who don’t really think about bikes get introduced to their mechanical nature, their great design. Maybe someday they’ll ride.

    Nice indeed. Now if they’d apply that same attitude to
    the bike itself perhaps we’d all benefit.

    The V-twin engine is little changed in 100 years.
    Deep shoulder fenders are empty space waiting for something.
    Is the space between the engine and rear tire really the best place for
    battery and oil? Rocker switches are really the best use of space on the bars?
    Big masses of plastic hanging off the front to hold a headlight and gauge?
    Still no decent auto canceling signals. Saddle bags hanging off the bike are aerodynamic how?
