THRUXTON 1200

THE LEGEND IS BACK

True motorcycle legends, with a name synonymous with Triumph’s racing heritage and a generation of teenage café racers and custom specials. The Thruxton and the Thruxton R take the legendary café racer back to its performance roots with real poise and power.

AN ENGAGED & THRILLING RIDE

New chassis and suspension for sharper handling, with 17-inch front wheel, sporty ergonomics, clip-on bars and uprated suspension for an even more engaged and thrilling ride.

DYNAMIC HANDLING

Triumph’s signature ride dynamics of neutrality, agility and stability deliver sharp handling.  The iconic café racer poise is delivered by a number of exciting design details including a steeper headstock angle, shorter trail, shorter wheel base and sportier rider ergonomics.  The aluminum swinging arm and rims reduce un-sprung mass for better performance & control, and there’s adjustable suspension on both models: cartridge forks & twin shocks on the standard Thruxton, and Showa USD big piston forks & Öhlins twin shocks on the Thruxton R.

SWITCHABLE ABS & TRACTION CONTROL

The Thruxtons are fitted with our latest generation of switchable anti-lock braking and traction control for maximum safety and control.  Both ABS and traction control units are compact, responsive and unobtrusive, and have been implemented with minimal visual impact.  Both can be turned off via the instrument menu if needed using the dedicated mode button.

 

ELEGANT & DISTINCTIVE LIGHTS

The new generation Thruxtons benefit from an all-new headlight design with branded bulb cap incorporating Daytime Running Lights* (DRL) for improved visibility and a distinctive light profile.  The new and distinctive LED rear light offers lower energy consumption and greater long-term durability and has been incorporated into the classically inspired and stylish tail set-up.

*DRL only available in applicable markets, check your Triumph dealership for more details.



DISTINCTIVE, BEAUTIFUL & AUTHENTIC

Thruxton motorbikes are all about style, with a slimmer more sculpted Thruxton tank, unique and beautiful ‘Monza’ filler cap, brushed engine covers, lightweight aluminum wheel rims and swinging arm, aluminum bar end mirrors, polished detailing, and single bullet seat*.
