2010 Triumph Thruxton

The cafe racer, reinvented.

Named after the famous racetrack where Triumph ruled the roost. Inspired by the Ton Up Boys of the 1960’s.

The Thruxton is Triumph’s sportiest Modern Classic, and authentic café racer delivering a unique Triumph experience.

Low rise bars, a sporting riding position, 18” spoked wheels, megaphone style exhuast and a race inspired stripe from tank to tail evoke memories of the Ace Café, racing in the streets, but underneath the engineering is pure 21st century, with a clean-running fuel injected 865cc parallel twin engine tuned for more performance and modern day reliability. The chassis too brings modern handling and braking thanks to adjustable 41mm forks and a 320mm floating front disc brake gripped by a twin piston caliper.

It’s a motorcycle to stir the hearts of those who remember it first time around and for young riders looking for that authentic retro experience that only Triumph can deliver.


 

 

Features and 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 69bhp delivered at 7,400rpm and peak torque of 52ft.lbs arrives at 5,800rpm. 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.


Fueling

The Thruxton features a fuel injection system designed for clean running and to meet Euro 3 legislation. The retro styling remains uncompromised though, as fuel injectors are cleverly concealed by throttle bodies designed to look like traditional carbs.


Handlebars

The Thruxton’s handlebars are one-piece tubular chromed steel bars and are set to give a 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 56.7in and 18 inch aluminum-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.
