After four years of fine-tuning the performance and details, Triumph has just launched the new Bonneville range – a handful of bikes that carries on the prestige of the British marque. Here, feast your eyes on the top-of-the-line models Thruxton & Thruxton R ($TBA).
Fitted with an all-new 1200cc “high power” 8 valve parallel twin engine, it’s safe to say these vintage-modern cafe racers are in Ducati Monster’s territory. Both models feature a low inertia 6 speed gearbox and a state of the art airbox, megaphone exhausts for a thrilling bark, an advanced liquid cooling system, traction control with built-in Road, Rain and Sport rider modes, and more. The Thruxton R, billed as “the ultimate factory cafe racer,” is equipped with Brembo disks, Showa Big piston forks, Öhlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Tires.
Two inspiration kits are also offered – ‘The Café Racer’ and ‘The Track Racer’ – with an array of impressive customization choices. The Thruxton arrives in Jet Black, Pure White or Competition Green, and the Thruxton R is available in Diablo Red or Silver Frost.
