Tri­umph 1200 Thrux­ton R Track Racer

RiDE (UK) - - Group Ride -

The 1200cc par­al­lel twin was in­tro­duced in the Bon­neville and Thrux­ton in 2016. The Thrux­ton ver­sion of the en­gine fea­tures a lighter crank and larger airbox for a more free-revving re­sponse and is tuned to make 96bhp (17bhp up on the Bon­nie) and 83lb·ft (6 lb·ft) up on the Bon­nie. The Thrux­ton R comes with a Who’s Who of chas­sis spec: Showa forks, Brembo monobloc calipers, Öh­lins shocks, Pirelli Rosso Corsa tyres, plus trac­tion con­trol and the rid­ing modes of Sport, Rain and Road. De­fault set­ting is Road at ig­ni­tion on. This Track Racer ver­sion in­cludes a cock­pit fair­ing, leather tank strap, LED in­di­ca­tors and Vance & Hines end cans, bump­ing the price from £12,400 to £14,350.

Tri­umph has the high­est spec and sharpest han­dling

Ad­justable rid­ing modes and trac­tion con­trol, but the Thrux­ton’s switchgear feels a bit pla­s­ticky De­spite the menus and dis­play for the elec­tron­ics, the clas­sic gauges look great

Front gets Showa BPFS and Öh­lins twin shocks

Tri­umph’s 1200 par­al­lel twin looks old-school out­side but is state-of-the-art in­side
