If I am not mistaken, the T-100 became an 865 in 05? The std bonne was still 790 @ that time & then in 06 became 865 as well. I still love my 790 tho!!
Very close, the T100 became 865cc in the 2005 model year and the Bonneville became 865cc in the 2007 model year according to this:-

Model years are different to calendar years though as any given years model goes on sale from October of the previous year as I understand it. That is, a 2007 model will start selling in October 2006 for example.

Model year in N.America usually starts with August production date on the tag with a VIN(vehicle identity number) for the following year. Some exceptions for new releases with some car makers, they will bring something like the Challenger out in May and call it the following year model.
2002 T100's are 790cc, that's why they are faster.

I knew Cycle World was wrong but man, this is in their buyers guides. I have from 2005 onwards and they don't differentiate the engine changes on the Bonnevilles...... bad research/editing on their part.
