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 Thruxton s the real deal and the ultimate
modern classic café racers.
New Thruxton spec. 1200cc engine
The legendary character of the Thruxton
comes to life through the 1200cc high power 8
valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine.
This all-new low inertia - high performance
six-speed engine features a lighter crank,
higher compression and unique airbox. With
the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle
response of Triumph s next generation ride-
by-wire fuel-injection, fed by authentically
styled twin throttle bodies, the Thruxton spec
engine delivers a massive peak torque figure
of 112Nm at 4950rpm - an amazing 62% more
than the previous generation. With a higher
power output of 97Ps at 6,750rpm, 41% up on
the previous model s engine, the new 1200cc
Thruxton delivers much more power lower
down and across the whole rev range, with an
incredible 68% more power at 4,500rpm.
Beautifully styled, with a very high level of
finish and detailing, the new engine, exhaust
and throttle bodies incorporate cues from
the original racing Thruxtons, whilst carefully
integrating contemporary components to
maintain that authentic look.
Behind the new 1200 engines stylish exterior
sits a cutting-edge liquid cooling system,
carefully integrated to minimise its visual
impact whilst achieving cleaner emissions and
enhancing fuel efficiency -- 11% better than
the previous generation. Combined with a
new extended service interval of 10,000 miles,
(16,000km), this contributes to a reduced
overall cost of ownership.
