Special model: Triumph T120 Black DGR Limited Edition!

BreitlingX Triumph Hero 5

To mark the tenth anniversary of the collaboration between TRIUMPH Motorcycles and the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR), the traditional British brand is presenting an exclusive special model: the "DGR Limited Edition" of the popular modern classic icon Bonneville T120 Black. The design of the "DGR-Bonnie", which is limited to just 250 pieces worldwide, is inspired by the particularly elegant outfit of the participants at the annual motorbike ride. Every year, the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride (DGR) unites hundreds of thousands of fans of classically styled motorcycles and vintage bikes from all over the world for a joint ride. The aim is to collect donations for projects in the field of men's health within the framework of the DGR and also to create awareness of these diseases.

To date, it has raised more than $37 million for prostate cancer research and men's mental health. TRIUMPH has been the official motorcycle partner of the DGR since 2014 and has thus committed itself to raising awareness of this good cause, increasing the number of participants in the "rides" and ultimately achieving higher donations.

In order to increase awareness of the DGR and the amount donated, TRIUMPH has been providing motorcycles from its Modern Classic series as a reward for the best fundraisers for years. In recent years, these have included unique bikes such as a Thruxton RS DGR Edition and the "1959 Legends" combination of a Bonneville T120 and a Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar, which was awarded by TRIUMPH and Gibson to the most successful fundraiser of 2022.

Edition of only 250 pieces

The year 2023 marks the tenth year of this partnership, making it a milestone for TRIUMPH and the DGR. To celebrate the anniversary and contribute to the success of the DGR 2023, TRIUMPH has designed the exclusive new Bonneville T120 Black Distinguished Gentleman's Ride Limited Edition, which will be produced in a limited run of just 250. The motorcycles are finished in a stylish black and white metallic finish, have official DGR branding and special logos and lettering on the tank and side panels, which together with other gold details provide an elegant contrast to the brown seat.

Each example comes with a numbered certificate signed by DGR Founder Mark Hawwa and TRIUMPH CEO Nick Bloor. The serial number 001 is already reserved as a prize for whoever collects the most donations as part of the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2023. The entire TRIUMPH community, from the global dealer network and fans of the brand to the employees, designers and engineers, is committed to expanding the awareness and influence of the DGR to further support the good cause of the promotion.

DGR founder Mark Hawwa:

  • "If someone had said ten years ago that we were celebrating a decade of partnership with TRIUMPH Motorcycles, I would have laughed. The signing of the cooperation in the first year was a highlight for me at the time. It was exciting, and that excitement continues. TRIUMPH has become part of the family for me and for the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. The TRIUMPH team is characterized by being passionate about riding classic motorcycles and making us available to make a positive contribution to our cause.
  • We have now combined this enthusiasm and passion in a product that reflects our journey together. We are very proud to present the Bonneville T120 Black Distinguished Gentleman's Ride Limited Edition and celebrate what we have achieved together. This motivates us to do what we love every day: supporting men's health. "

TRIUMPH Chief Commercial Officer Paul Stroud:

  • "We are very happy to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our unique cooperation with the DGR, which is a very important partnership for TRIUMPH and the numerous DGR fans around the world. From the beginning it was clear that the DGR and TRIUMPH are a perfect match, because we have a common passion. This means standing up for bikes, style and the people you love - something that is much more than just sponsorship. Everyone who has been involved with the DGR over the last ten years should be rightly proud of what has been achieved so far and who has been helped.
  • This includes the TRIUMPH and DGR teams, right down to our dealers, the army of organizers and hosts, and the legions of riders who are passionate about supporting this wonderful event and cause. With the launch of the new DGR Edition of our Bonneville T120 Black, we want to celebrate this wonderful occasion with something very special that I believe embodies the spirit of the DGR and as such offers a new way of getting motorcyclists excited about this event. "
