Out of all the members of the new Bonneville family, the new Triumph Thruxton and Thruxton R have the most to live up to. Their name is about as legendary as it gets, even for an icon like the Bonneville. Back in the 1960s and ’70s it was synonymous with Triumph’s racing success across the world and most notably at the Isle of Man TT, and it inspired a generation of teenage café racers and custom specials.
The all-new Thruxton and Thruxton R more than just look the part, they really deliver out on the road too.
The breath-taking new Thruxton returns the café racer to its heritage performance roots, with all the power, delivered by its 1200cc ‘Thruxton spec’ engine, and the handling, agility and capability to match its beautifully imposing and authentic styling.
The more contemporary Thruxton R is simply the most thrilling and full-blooded sports classic you can buy. Building on the capability of the Thruxton, the Thruxton R is equipped to a higher specification with Brembo monobloc calipers, Showa big piston forks, Öhlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tyres. The legend is back.
Together, their uncompromisingly elegant and imposing lines are perfectly matched by the quality of their design, detailing, power and performance, and the incorporation of contemporary technology into a ride that’s as poised as it is exhilarating.
This combination of head-turning style, spine-tingling performance and unparalleled heritage and character is what makes the new Thurxton’s the real deal and the ultimate modern classic café racers.
