2023 Triumph Chrome Line Editions | First Look Review
Last year, Triumph launched the exclusive Bonneville Gold Line collection: eight limited-edition models available for one year only and showcasing the hand-painted gold lining skills of Triumph’s paint shop. Following the success of the Gold Line editions, Triumph announced it is launching a Chrome Line collection, featuring 10 limited-edition models that will also be available for one year only. Triumph says the Chrome Line brings a “unique, bold, and beautiful new take” on the latest generation of Triumph’s modern classic Bonneville lineup and the Rocket 3.

The Chrome Line collection is inspired by the classic custom look that has been a significant part of Triumph’s iconic history, from the original chromed tank of the 1937 Speed Twin to the 1960s Tritons and up to the birth of the custom classic generation.
Whereas the Gold Line collection was recognizing the skills of the paint shop, Triumph says the Chrome Collection celebrates the company’s state-of-the-art chrome-detailing facility and the “expert teams of specialist design and manufacturing engineers who have perfected the process over many years, across hundreds of accessories, beautiful badges, and detailing.”
Each of the ten new limited editions feature a unique Chrome Edition scheme, chosen specifically to reflect each model’s rich heritage and accompanied by new Chrome Edition accessory kits. Available to order now, these exclusive limited editions will be coming into dealerships worldwide in early 2023.
