All of Triumph Motorcycles’ new 2009 parallel twin-engine platforms will have electronic fuel injection, stated a company press release. The upgrade affects all the Modern Classics, including the Bonneville, Bonneville T100, Scrambler and Thruxton. The America and Speedmaster, in the cruiser segment, also have the upgrade.
The fuel injectors were incorporated into the bikes by the throttle bodies, so they look like carburetors. The changeover from carburetors to electronic fuel injection is in direct response to European emissions legislation.
In 2009, all the Triumph parallel twin powered models in North America will receive this update, which exceeds Euro 3 as well as EPA and CARB emissions standards.
