Triumph says its 2009 parallel twin engine platforms will include electronic fuel injection (EFI). This new technology affects all the Modern Classics: Bonneville, Bonneville T100, Scrambler and Thruxton. The America and Speedmaster, in the Cruiser range, also receive this upgrade.
Triumph has been able to preserve the classic look of the engine while modifying it to accommodate the EFI update. To be honest, what they did was hide the fuel injectors by throttle bodies designed to look like carburetors.
The changeover from carbs to electronic fuel injection is in direct response to the European emissions legislation. In 2009 all the Triumph parallel twin powered models in North America receive this update which exceeds Euro 3 as well as EPA and CARB emissions standards.
