Triumph Thruxton / R 1200cc
THE LEGEND IS BACK. Real poise, Real power, Real performance. The new 1200cc Bonneville Thruxton and Thruxton R are the real deal, the ultimate modern classic cafe racers. Both with the beautifully imposing and authentic styling, the poise, the power, braking, performance and the handling to live up to their legendary name.
THRUXTON – THE CAFE RACER REBORN. The Bonneville Thruxton returns the legendary café racer to its performance roots, from the power, delivered by its 1200cc ‘Thruxton spec’ engine, to the handling, agility and capability to match its beautifully imposing and authentic Thruxton styling.
THRUXTON R – THE CAFÉ RACER REBORN. The ultimate factory cafe racer, arguably the most thrilling and full-blooded sports classic you can buy. Building on the capability of the Thruxton, the ‘R’ is equipped to the highest specification with twin floating Brembo disks, Brembo monobloc callipers, Showa Big piston forks, Öhlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tyres.
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.
The all-new ‘low inertia – high performance’ six-speed engine features a lighter crank and airbox unique to the 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 120Nm at a low 4950 rpm – an amazing 62% more than the previous generation Thruxton.
Both feature a unique fuel tank incorporating a ‘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 two for the Thruxton R in Diablo Red or Silver Frost.
The contemporary safety standard, Triumph’s variable anti-lock braking system brings a new level of control to the Thruxton R.
The Thruxton R’s electronic ride-by-wire system enhances throttle control, responsiveness, safety and feel.
Linked to the ride-by-wire system the three selectable Rider Mode options ‘road, rain and sport’ provide the rider with greater control and safety and with the ‘sport’ mode an even more immediate responsiveness.
Taking advantage of the sophisticated ride-by-wire system the Thruxton incorporates a switchable traction control system that optimises the delivery of its outstanding torque.
SLIP ASSIST CLUTCH
Bringing a light touch and feel to the clutch control of the Thruxton R, the new slip assist clutch system makes it easy to ride, and ride longer.
FINGER TIP CONTROLS
The new Thruxton R and switchgear presents a simple fingertip control scroll button for easy access to the key features on the new digital clocks.

Key features include: Rider mode setting, 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 R headlights incorporate the latest in daytime running lights (DRL) delivering a distinctive signature light pattern and enhanced power efficiency for long term durability.
