Inspired by the Bonneville-based café 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 Bonneville’s 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 café 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.
