When did Triumph stop using carbs?

Triumph Bonneville models through 2007 had twin carburetors, but in 2009 fuel injection became the new method for fuel delivery.

When did Triumph Bonneville get fuel injection?

From 2007 on, all Bonnevilles received the 865 cc engine. Through 2007, all engines had carburettors; electronic fuel injection (EFI) was then introduced to the 2008 models in Britain and to United States models in the 2009 model year, in both cases to comply with increasingly stringent emissions requirements.

Is 2007 Triumph Bonneville fuel Injected?

The engine is up to 865cc from the 790 from last year, but it’s still fed by two carburettors rather than fuel injection. The carburettors are of the electrically heated type to avoid icing in cold weather.

Do any motorcycles still use carburetors?

Despite new motorcycles being almost exclusively fuel injected, countless carbureted motorcycles (as well as dirt bikes, ATVs and more) are still in use today. For many riders and new motorcycle technicians, carburetors are a mystery—however, once we take a deeper look, we learn that they are incredibly simple devices.

Is fuel injection better than carburetor motorcycle?

Old bikers would also stick to their carbureted option, as they are simpler to maintain and repair. However, while fuel injection generally increases the cost of the bike, it also provides much better cold starting, better throttle response, better fuel efficiency, less maintenance.

Is the Triumph T100 fuel injected?

Like all 2009 Bonnevilles, the T100 benefits from the latest incarnation of Triumph’s legendary 865cc parallel twin, which is now fuel injected. This bike will not only stop people in their tracks, but with disc brakes front and rear, it will stop you nicely too.

How reliable are Triumph Bonnevilles?

Triumph ranked in seventh place with an overall failure rate at 29%. While Triumph couldn’t compete with the Japanese manufacturer’s for reliability, they did score higher than Ducati, BMW, and Can-Am. These studies are controversial though, and shouldn’t be the main indicator of a manufacturer’s overall reliability.
