– 2011 Triumph Thruxton

2011 Triumph Thruxton

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.

 


Triumph Thruxton

Inspired by the Bonneville-based cafe racers of the 1960s and named after the Hampshire race track
where Triumph enjoyed so much success, the Thruxton is Triumph’s sportiest classic and a machine
for the real connoisseur.

With its low slung handlebars, alloy rimmed wire wheels and central racing stripe, the Thruxton
looks ready to roll onto the grid at a classic motorcycle race. Thumb the starter and enjoy the satisfying growl that only a British parallel-twin can provide. Make no mistake, motorcycles are designed to evoke emotions. And no motorcycle creates a bigger emotion than the Triumph Thruxton.

The Bonnevillefs 865cc eight-valve DOHC parallel-twin has been tuned for performance in the
Thruxton and delivers 69PS thanks to its revised camshaft profile and high-compression pistons.

Handling is composed and precise too, with 41mm forks and chromed twin shock absorbers adjustable for preload and delivering a tailored sporting ride to match the looks. A fully floating 320mm front disc brake equips the Thruxton with far more power and assurance than the 1960s bikes it pays homage to.

As one would expect from the flagship to Triumph’s classic line, the Thruxton is dripping with neat
touches and quality components. Neat bar end mirrors complement the minimalist lines, while
lightweight alloy rims, bar mounted instruments, sporty graphics and racy megaphone silencers ensure
the Thruxton remains faithful to the cafe racers of the period.

A range of genuine Triumph accessories are available for the Thruxton to further increase its sporting
prowess. These include an aerodynamic bikini fairing and, for those wishing to take to the race track,
a beautifully crafted race exhaust from Arrow Special Parts which increases performance and the aural
tone from the parallel-twin engine.

Two premium colour options are available for the Thruxton: Diablo Red with a white race stripe or
Phantom Black with a classic gold stripe.

2011 Triumph Thruxton 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 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 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 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.
