2010 Triumph Thruxton

2010 Thruxton2010 Triumph Thruxton

Inspired by the spartan café racers of the 1960s and named after the Triumph racing bikes of the era, the Thruxton is a sleek machine which seamlessly mixes traditional styling with a modern attitude technology.

The fuel injected, 865cc parallel twin is the most powerful of Triumph’s Modern Classics range, delivering 69PS delivered at 7400rpm and peak torque of 69Nm arriving at 5800rpm. The engine shares the same 360° firing interval as the Bonneville but also features ‘hot’ camshaft profiles, a compression ratio of 9.2:1
and megaphone style exhausts.

Low rise bars, a sporting riding position, 18 inch aluminium rimmed spoked wheels, megaphone style silencers and a race inspired stripe from tank to tail evoke memories of the Ace Café and racing in the streets, but underneath the engineering is pure 21st century. 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 provides powerful, but sensitive, stopping performance.

Wrapping the motor is a precisely crafted chassis that inspires confidence while 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 and a wheelbase of 1490mm
(56.7in) all aid steering input.

Like all of Triumph’s Modern Classics range, the Thruxton benefits from revised instrumentation with cleaner design and a digital odometer in 2010. Colour options for 2010 are a vivid Tornado Red with a white centre stripe or Jet Black with gold striping.
