Features

The Thruxton draws on the spartan café racing machines of the sixties and takes its name from the near-mythic racing Triumphs from the same era.

With its perfectly proportioned, evocative silhouette the Thruxton is a truly beautiful machine. It captures the very essence of the café racer look - the shorty-style front mudguard, rakish clip-on handlebars, distinctive seat hump and spartan elegance - and matches it to exhilarating, fluid performance. The Thruxton fires the imagination of many of today's younger riders who seek a distinctive and involving bike, where authentic retro sixties style mixes seamlessly with a modern edge and attitude.

The Thruxton's 865cc, twin cylinder power plant is the most powerful of Triumph's twin-cylinder line up. It shares the Bonnie's 360° firing interval but adds 'hot' camshaft profiles, a compression ratio of 10.2:1 and megaphone-style exhausts. Peak power output of 70PS is delivered at 7,250rpm and peak torque of 72Nm arrives at 5,750rpm.

Wrapping the motor is a precisely crafted chassis that inspires confidence and delivers a real sporting character. The sturdy, spring preload adjustable, 41mm telescopic forks and twin rear shocks give superb suspension action and compliance. Sharper steering geometry, a wheelbase of 1477mm and an 18inch front wheel aids steering input. A fully floating 320mm front disc and twin-piston brake caliper provide powerful, controllable braking performance.

Three colour options are available - Jet Black, Racing Yellow and Caspian Blue - and all feature a chequered flag tank graphic and silver mudguards. A comprehensive range of accessories, including less restrictive silencers, fly screen, soft luggage and various chrome additions further enhance the Thruxton's scope for owner involvement and personalisation.

Triumph specialises in building unique bikes and with the Thruxton has defined a whole new category in modern motorcycling - retro sports. But if one lesson from the past has stood the passage of time, it's that the basic essence of motorcycling transcends all technology. What a bike is, and represents to the owner, is very nearly as important as what it does. All that's really needed, for many are an engine, two wheels and a pair of handlebars. The Thruxton is just that, yet a whole lot more besides.
