When did the silencers change?

I want to buy a new Bonneville T-100 in the spring, but just noticed, while looking at photos of the local dealer's inventory, that the pea shooter silencers are now gone! When did that change? Are the new silencers an improvement or just for looks? I really liked the looks of the old style.

Triumph's website shows the 2013 T-100 with pea shooters. The base Bonnie has other pipes.

OK, I understand that. I'm guessing that if nothing has changed, the dealer has already substituted what looks like a set of Hyde Togas on a new T-100. I'll make an enquiry with the dealer.

Had the same question - when did the silencers change on the base Bonnies?

Just went to the Triumph site and the base bonnie has no spokes and only 17" wheels for 2013......

I spoke with the dealer today whose T-100 looked like it had non-peashooter silencers in the photo posted on their web site. He says the silencers are peashooters, but that the photo is distorted. Mystery solved. T-100's have the peashooter silencers.

I'm guessing you're going to change the exhaust at some point and if you aren't there are lots of people unloading stock mufflers cheap because they did. Get the bike you want, the rest is easy.

OK kids,let's get our definitions correct. This is a "teardrop" muffler (or silencer if you prefer):



These 'cigar-shaped' mufflers are standard on the classic Bonneville's with wire spoke wheels.

These are "Peashooters" as denoted by their long reverse cone shape:



These mufflers are on the cast wheel Bonnies. Because of differnces in the header pipes, the two styles of mufflers are not interchangeable.

Since Norman Hyde Togas were previously mentioned, I'll add that he offers both styles of 'silencers' for each version of Bonneville.

For what ever it's worth, in the Triumph on-line catalogue the silencers on the top bike, a T-100, are described as "peashooters," while the silencers on the bottom bike, an SE Bonnie, are called "megaphones."
