Used to race from one cafÃ© to another, they featured extensive modifications such as dropped bars, single seats and upswept exhausts.To this day, weâ€™ve kept many of these styling cues for the modern Thruxton. Named after the high speed British circuit where Triumph enjoyed great success in production racing, it follows in the tyre tracks of the legendary 1960s Thruxton T120R.And just like those cafÃ© racers of the 60s, the modern Thruxton is Bonneville based but nowadays, our engineers have made sure it rides like a modern Triumph twin. So itâ€™s dependable enough for everyday use, easy and fun to ride yet still evokes the classic cafÃ© racer look.Standard Features May Include:StylingWe created a style for the Thruxton that echoes the 1960s cafÃ© racers. Back then, machines were modified by their owners for higher speeds and sharper handling.We used classic 1960s paint schemes with period sports stripes and fitted a typical single-seat, or so it looks thanks to the rear cover. In actual fact a passenger can enjoy the ride on a Thruxton too.HandlebarsLow and narrow 'Ace' handlebars, named after London's famous Ace CafÃ©, with classic bar-end mirrors sit behind a colour-coded flyscreen.InstrumentsTwin instrument pods sitting high on their top yoke mounting position.EngineThe cafÃ© racers were built to perform, not just to look good. Today, this 865cc parallel twin puts out a healthy 69PS with 69Nm of torque at its peak, with plenty available at low revs so you get most use out of it. Fuelling is controlled by a sophisticated computer programmed management system for clean emissions and a smooth, predictable throttle response.ConfigurationThe basic format is the same as the current Bonneville, with 360 degree firing intervals, double overhead cams, eight valves, twin balance shafts and fuel injection. So you know it's a thoroughly modern engine that, despite its convincing old-school looks, easily meeting Triumphâ€™s high standard of reliability, durability and efficiency.FrameAll of our extensive chassis experience and technology has gone into the Thruxtonâ€™s simple tubular steel construction. Providing easy, neutral steering and exceptional balance even at low speeds.SuspensionWe fitted 41mm forks and chromed rear shocks and retuned them for a firmer ride and tighter control in high speed corners. The shocks include adjustability for spring preload for carrying a passenger or to suit your riding style.BrakesWe fitted the front with a big 320mm single disc strong enough to match the sporting pedigree of the Thruxton with plenty of feedback to enhance your ride. Yet we've made it as unobtrusive as possible within the 1960s styling. At the rear is another disc, so thereâ€™s no compromise in the Thruxton's thoroughly modern braking performance.Wheels and TiresThe wheels are wire-spoked with aluminium alloy rims, 18 inches at the front and 17 inches rear for the classic cafÃ© racer look. They're lightweight too, for increased suspension performance and handling agility.HandlingWe kept the geometry similar to the Bonneville's but with a little less trail at 97mm so you get sharper steering and more urgent handling when ridden hard. But the same neutral, obedient feel during less exuberant riding, making the Thruxton a rewarding as well as an easy bike to ride.
