2012 Triumph Thruxton

Thruxton. The café racer. Reinvented.

Thruxton. Named after the race track where Triumph ruled the roost and inspired by the famous "Ton Up Boys" of the 60s. The Thruxton is Triumph’s sportiest classic, an authentic café racer delivering that unique Brit twin riding experience. Low rise bars, sporty riding position, aluminum-rimmed spoked wheels (18” front and 17” rear), megaphone style exhaust and a modern 865cc parallel-twin engine. It stirs the heart for those around at the time and for those who seek the classic sporty retro cool.


  • Styling
  • A motorcycle to stir the heart. Classic 60's retro styling. Café racer to the max. Beautiful chrome, aluminum-rimmed spoked wheels, sporty color schemes, megaphone style exhaust. Sporting low handlebars and stylish bar end mirrors complete the look.

  • Engine
  • Air-cooled DOHC parallel-twin 865cc engine with 360 degree firing interval. Modern engine meets Euro 3 emissions but with retro styling and the authentic sound. 68bhp and 51ft.lbs of torque at 5800rpm.

  • Handling
  • The sturdy, pre-load adjustable 41mm telescopic forks and twin rear shocks give it superb suspension and compliance with sharp steering geometry.
