The Triumph Thruxton is the sportier, café racer-styled version of its popular retro roadster Bonneville, which were all completely reinvented in 2016 with an all-new, liquid-cooled powertrain (which is styled to look air-cooled), new chassis, everything…
The Thruxton name itself, meanwhile, comes from the Hampshire racing circuit which in the 1960s hosted the important Thruxton 500 endurance race which specially adapted Triumph Bonnevilles dominated in 1969 by taking the first three places. Soon after, Triumph built a commemorative, performance version of the T120 Bonneville known as the T120 Thruxton and a legend was born. Following the successful launch of an all-new, retro-styled Bonneville by the revived Hinckley Triumph marque in 2001, an uprated, café racer-style Thruxton variant was also launch in 2004 which remained in production for 12 years.
However, the all-new 1200cc version launched in 2016 is not only bigger and more powerful, it also comes in two versions – the basic Thruxton 1200 with conventional forks and twin shocks and an uprated R with multi-adjustable inverted forks, adjustable Öhlins piggy-back shocks plus also equipment upgrades by way of stainless silencers, a ‘Monza’ fuel cap, brushed aluminium tank strap, clear anodized swinging arm, painted seat cowl and a polished top yoke.
With 96bhp and fabulous handling both are a huge step up from the old 865cc, 69bhp version and are also more substantial and better equipped. Reliability and quality have proven good as well. If you like the retro look but want modern sporting ability and features such as switchable riding modes, the Thruxton 1200 is definitely worth a look.
