2009 Triumph Thruxton

Our sportiest modern classic.

When you are named after the legendary Thruxton racers of the 60’s that inspired so many of the Café racers of the time, there’s a lot to live up to.

Hence the authentic styling that looks fast even when standing still. Low rise bars, a sporting riding position, spoked wheels, megaphone style silencers and a race inspired stripe from tank to tail would be enough for some, but not the Triumph Thruxton.

The riding experience has had just as much attention lavished on it with an 18” front wheel with an aluminium rim for genuine looks and improved handling. A floating front disc and two piston caliper, complete with braided hoses tame the fuel injected 865cc parallel twin engine which is tuned for more performance.


Features & Benefits

Engine
The Thruxton’s 865cc, air-cooled, twin cylinder power plant, the most powerful of Triumph’s twin cylinder line-up, has a peak power output of 70PS (69bhp) delivered at 7400rpm and peak torque of 70Nm (52ft.lbf) arrives at 5800rpm. The engine shares the same 360° firing interval as the Bonneville, as well as featuring ‘hot’ camshaft profiles and a compression ratio of 9.9:1.


Fuelling
The Thruxton’s 865cc, air-cooled, twin cylinder power plant, the most powerful of Triumph’s twin cylinder line-up, has a peak power output of 70PS (69bhp) delivered at 7400rpm and peak torque of 70Nm (52ft.lbf) arrives at 5800rpm. The engine shares the same 360° firing interval as the Bonneville, as well as featuring ‘hot’ camshaft profiles and a compression ratio of 9.9:1.


Handlebars
The Thruxton’s handlebars are one-piece tubular chromed steel bars and are set slightly higher to enhance rider ergonomics and give a more upright but still sporty riding position. The stylish bar-end mirrors, engineered specifically for the Thruxton, come as standard.


Chassis
Wrapping the motor is a precisely crafted chassis that inspires confidence; its harder edge delivering real sporting character. The sturdy, preload adjustable 41mm telescopic forks and twin rear shocks give superb suspension action and compliance while sharper steering geometry, a wheelbase of 1490mm and 18 inch aluminium-rimmed front wheel all aid steering input.


Brakes
A fully floating 320mm front disc and twin-piston brake caliper provide powerful, but sensitive, braking performance.

Triumph 2009 Triumph Thruxton Media/Press Release(s):

2009 Bonneville, Bonneville SE, T100 and 50th Anniversary Special
Edition

For 2009 Triumph has taken inspiration from the ‘70s for the iconic Bonneville,
with significant updates for the coming year and a new version, the Bonneville
SE, also joining the range. Both models feature authentic retro styling plus a host
of chassis changes aimed at making the bikes easier to ride and giving them an
even wider appeal. Visually, the most striking difference comes with the new 17”
cast alloy wheels at the front and rear, shorter mudguards and stylish
megaphone silencers from the sporty Thruxton.

New handlebars are closer to the rider and the seat height is reduced by 25mm,
making the riding position more relaxed and accessible. The smaller, lighter front
wheel helps make the new Bonneville an even more manoeuvrable and agile
machine. Complementing the clean lines are classic black or white colour
options.

The higher-specification Bonneville SE features an array of special equipment,
including a tacho, chromed tank badges and brushed alloy engine casings. The SE
comes in a choice of solid Jet Black or a classic two-tone livery combining the
dark Pacific Blue with Fusion White.

Riders looking for a Sixties-style Bonneville are catered for with the wire-wheeled
T100 model, which has been updated with detail changes for 2009. The retro
classic gets new handlebar clamps, restyled footrests, black clock surrounds and
a white Triumph logo on the seat, while fork gaiters, previously available as an
optional extra, come as standard.

Triumph also unveiled a limited edition 50th Anniversary Bonneville, based on the
T100, and celebrating 50 years of this iconic motorcycle. Only 650 Bonneville
T100 50th Anniversary edition bikes will be produced, echoing the engine capacity
of the original ‘50s machine. Each will be individually numbered and identified
with a brass plate on the handlebar clamp and a certificate of authentication.
Other features include a unique orange and blue colour scheme based on the
1959 ‘Tangerine Dream’ original, white piping and a gold Triumph logo on the
seat, special decals on the side panels and a chromed cam cover.
Although the Bonneville family share the same name and timeless looks of the
‘60s and ‘70s machines, they feature a modern chassis and fuel-injected, 865cc
twin-cylinder engine.

The 2009 T100 and 50th Anniversary Bonnevillle will be available from the end of
July, and are priced at £5,999 otr* and £6,499 otr* respectively. The 2009
Bonneville and Bonneville SE will be available from January 2009, price to be
confirmed.
