MY17 Thruxton Family

THRUXTON R - THE CAFÉ RACER REBORN. The ultimate factory cafe racer, arguably the most thrilling and full-blooded sports classic motorcycle you can buy.



The legendary character of the Thruxton comes to life through the 1200cc, high power, 8 valve, parallel twin engine.

The all-new 'low inertia - high performance' six-speed engine features a lighter crank and airbox unique to the Thruxton and Thruxton R. 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 82.6 FT-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.


Beautifully styled with a very high level of finish and detailing the Thruxton 1200cc high power engine incorporates visual cues from the Thruxton Bonneville whilst integrating contemporary engine components to maintain that authentic look.

With upswept reverse megaphone exhausts designed to deliver the thrilling sound of a British racing twin, with a rich and raw note that matches its legendary name.


Behind the 1200cc Thruxton spec engine's exterior is an advanced liquid cooling system sensitively designed to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving cleaner emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency – 11% better than the previous generation. Combined with an extended service interval of 10,000 miles, (16,000km), this contributes to a reduced overall cost of ownership.



With all of the brooding presence and poise of the original Triumph racers the Thruxton and Thruxton R take the modern classic sports bike to a new level. Combining beautifully sharp and imposing styling with a wealth of high quality details, including a slim sculpted petrol tank, single seat set-up and a unique flip-up ‘Monza’ cap, the Thruxton and Thruxton R set the new benchmark.


Both feature a unique fuel tank incorporating a flip up ‘Monza’ cap (a first on any modern production bike), bullet seat and lightweight aluminum bar end mirrors, wheel rims and swinging arm. The Thruxton R features an additional painted seat cowl, polished top yoke, tank strap and clear anodized aluminum swinging arm. There are three Thruxton colour choices, Jet Black, Pure White or Competition Green, and three for the Thruxton R in Diablo Red, Silver Frost and Matt Black.



The contemporary safety standard, Triumph's anti-lock braking system brings a new level of control to the Thruxton and Thruxton R.


The Thruxtons' electronic ride-by-wire system enhances throttle control, responsiveness, safety and feel.


Linked to the ride-by-wire system the three selectable Mode options 'road, rain and sport' provide the rider with greater control and safety, and with the 'sport' mode an even more immediate response.


Taking advantage of the sophisticated ride-by-wire system the Thruxton and Thruxton R incorporates a switchable traction control system that optimises the delivery of its outstanding torque.


Bringing a light touch and feel to the clutch control of the Thruxton and Thruxton R, the latest torque assist clutch system makes it easy to ride, and ride longer.


The Thruxton and Thruxton R switchgear presents a simple fingertip control scroll button for easy access to the key features on the digital clocks.


Stylish feature-packed twin clock (speedo and rev counter) with beautiful 3D dial faces cleverly incorporating a digital menu system accessed by a handlebar mounted scroll button. Key features include: gear position indicator, odometer, two trip settings, service indicator, range to empty, fuel level, average and current MPG, clock, access to turn off traction control and ABS features.


A new contemporary standard, the Thruxton and Thruxton R headlight incorporate the latest daytime running lights (DRL) delivering a distinctive signature light pattern.


The LED rear light, incorporated into the classically inspired and stylish tail set-up, brings a distinctive rear light pattern and power efficiency.


A security device that integrates a transponder into the Thruxton key, linked to a receiver in the ignition system, that prevents the engine from running if the correct key isn't used.


An under-seat USB socket is provided so you can charge up your essential devices.



The Thruxton chassis and suspension is all about sharp handling that really delivers on its café racing looks. With sporting ergonomics, clip on bars, uprated fully adjustable suspension and a 17 inch front wheel, for stunning handling and agility, combines Triumph’s signature ride dynamic of neutrality, agility and stability the Thruxton delivers an engaged and thrilling ride.


The Thruxton R takes the riding capability to the next level with a more focused riding position, kicked up back end, smaller diameter grips and a very high specification of equipment all round. Including twin floating Brembo discs with Brembo monobloc calipers and master cylinder, Showa USD forks, Öhlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres.

This includes a sculpted Thruxton cockpit fairing, exhausts from Vance & Hines and a garage full of custom inspired parts, including a Thruxton tail tidy and beautiful compact bullet indicators.
