– 2012 Triumph Thruxton Review

2012 Triumph Thruxton

Thruxton. The café racer. Reinvented.

Thruxton. Named after the race track where Triumph ruled the roost and inspired by the famous “Ton Up Boys” of the 60s. The Thruxton is Triumph’s sportiest classic, an authentic café racer delivering that unique Brit twin riding experience. Low rise bars, sporty riding position, aluminium-rimmed spoked wheels (18” front and 17” rear), megaphone style silencers and a modern 865cc parallel-twin engine. It stirs the heart for those around at the time and for those who seek the classic sporty retro cool.

Inspired by the 60s café racer. Named after the triumph racing bikes of the era. The real deal. Remastered from the original. A sporty yet comfortable riding position. Fuel injected 865CC parallel twin tuned for performance. Spoked wheels. Megaphone style pipes. 18 inch front wheel with aluminum rim. Floating front disc and two piston caliper with braided hoses. Analog tachometer for perfectly tuned gear changes. Triumph’s sportiest modern classic. Thruxton roars back. It’s ablast!
