Elvis Presley’s legacy extends far beyond the music world. Even companies with whom he had no direct business ties are finding ways to capitalize on the King’s enduring popularity.

One such company is the British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph. While Elvis himself wasn’t a spokesperson for the brand, he was a big fan of their T120 Bonneville motorcycles. He purchased several for his inner circle back in 1965.

These individuals, known as the Memphis Mafia, were more than just Elvis’ friends; they were the ones who helped him meet the demands of fame. The fact that Elvis entrusted them with these motorcycles speaks volumes about their bond.

Triumph has milked this connection for years, releasing special edition bikes to commemorate the King’s love for their machines.

Triumph Motorcycles is revving up its engines to celebrate the King of Rock and Roll with a limited-edition Bonneville T120 Elvis Presley motorcycle. This special edition boasts a distinctive design that sets it apart from its standard siblings.

Inspired by a custom Bonneville created for charity, the bike features a head-turning Carnival Red paint job with contrasting aluminum stripes and gold accents. Chrome finishes gleam throughout, particularly on the exhaust system.

Elvis’ legacy lives on in the unique details adorning this commemorative motorcycle. The singer’s name shines in gold lettering, while his signature graces the fuel tank and side panels.

A hidden gem for fans is the inclusion of “taking care of business in a flash,” a personal motto worn by Elvis’ inner circle, the Memphis Mafia. As a final touch, a numbered handlebar clamp boasts a repeat Elvis signature, adding exclusivity to each of the 925 bikes produced.
