TRI­UMPH

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Retro Special 2017 -

Thrux­ton & Thrux­ton R

When it comes to café rac­ers, no­body does it bet­ter or with more style than Tri­umph through their stun­ning Thrux­tons. Based around an HP (High Power) ver­sion of the water-cooled 1200cc par­al­lel twin, the Thrux­ton mod­els wrap this spir­ited engine in a pair of in­stantly recog­nis­able Tri­umph café rac­ers that go as good as they look – and they look fan­tas­tic. Un­der their retro skins are an ar­ray of mod­ern elec­tronic as­sists in­clud­ing trac­tion con­trol and vari­able power modes, all of which al­low them to per­form like a mod­ern ma­chine yet look pe­ri­od­cor­rect through clever styling. The R ver­sion adds higher spec­i­fi­ca­tion sus­pen­sion and brakes as well as an alu­minium swingarm to boost its sport­ing prow­ess.
