Thruxton R’s perfect balance of breath taking style, thrilling performance, handling and category-leading capability heralds the return of the Triumph racing legend.THRILLING NEW 1200cc ENGINE
The legendary character of the Thruxton comes to life through the all new 1200cc ‘high power’ 8 valve, parallel twin engine.

With the pin-point accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection, fed by authentic twin throttle bodies, the Thruxton spec engine delivers a massive peak torque figure of 112FT-lbs at a low 4950 rpm - an amazing 62% more than the previous generation. With a high power output of 97HP 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.BEAUTIFUL STYLE AND SOUND
