The Thruxton is born of the caf racer culture that dominated motorcycling in the 1960s.
Back then, British twins, usually Bonneville engines, were used to form the basis of home built bikes. Used to race from one caf to another, they featured extensive modifications such as dropped bars, single seats and upswept exhausts.
To this day, we’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 caf 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 it’s dependable enough for everyday use, easy and fun to ride yet still evokes the classic caf racer look.
Standard Features May Include:Styling
We created a style for the Thruxton that echoes the 1960s caf 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.Handlebars
Low and narrow Ace handlebars, named after Londons famous Ace Caf, with classic bar-end mirrors sit behind a colour-coded flyscreen.Instruments
Twin instrument pods sitting high on their top yoke mounting position.Engine
The caf 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.Configuration
The 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 its a thoroughly modern engine that, despite its convincing old-school looks, easily meeting Triumph’s high standard of reliability, durability and efficiency.Frame
All of our extensive chassis experience and technology has gone into the Thruxton’s simple tubular steel construction. Providing easy, neutral steering and exceptional balance even at low speeds.Suspension
We 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.Brakes
We 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 weve made it as unobtrusive as possible within the 1960s styling. At the rear is another disc, so there’s no compromise in the Thruxtons thoroughly modern braking performance.Wheels and Tires
The wheels are wire-spoked with aluminium alloy rims, 18 inches at the front and 17 inches rear for the classic caf racer look. Theyre lightweight too, for increased suspension performance and handling agility.Handling
We kept the geometry similar to the Bonnevilles 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.
