Take a glance at the new Triumph Thruxton and have troubles spotting the of the 2010 model year not because the bike looks like it did in 2009, but also the fuel injection system is camouflaged in a pair of carburetors and so the Thruxton’s legendary racing


68-bhp fuel parallel twin engine

on all their Modern Classics, uses the consecrated air-cooled, DOHC, parallel-twin motor is fuel-injected for those same including the Thruxton. What’s the of this bike is the racing that comes with the That same heritage British engineers to get the most out of the 68bhp at 7,400 rpm and 51ft.lbf at rpm and call this their timeless machine.

The engine on being mated to the five-speed while the right rider X-ring chain is no only one of the characteristics, but also the appropriate for a motorcycle claimed to perform as as it looks.

Both the frame and the are made out of tubular steel so at we have what to blame for the 506 lbs wet of this piece of history. The spoked 18-inch front, rear wheels remain to the 1960s style, but the braking featuring a 320mm floating and two piston calipers and a single disc with two piston is as modern as they get.

We could just say that the suspension package as the 41mm adjustable forks are anyway but while the chromed spring shocks with adjustable sure look like opposite, but still get the job done. sporty handling is ensured by a 27 rake and 97mm trail, but the low center of gravity and the 84.6 overall length are no disadvantages

What’s the best of this is that it has been looking and like this for decades, the things that Triumph care of through years easily called details.

maintaining the standard Thruxton on the line, Triumph’s 2010 features a Thruxton SE limited model that the British manufacturer has also created the café racer style in

Already an attractive motorcycle of the classic sportbike style, the Thruxton is powered by an 865cc parallel twin and it is based on a tubular frame. While will also be the main behind the 2010 Triumph SE, the exclusive new bike comes in new Crystal White paint with a red stripe. The sportier is also enhanced by the presence of the new cowl and red powdercoated frame but not forget about the black cases, which contribute as

We totally dig the British idea of a edition model and, if we at the Triumph Daytona 675 SE. it’s to see they’re making a tradition out of standard bikes into units.



in 2007 when Ducati their Sport Classic the Ducati Sport 1000 was what the Italians needed in to give Triumph a hard but meanwhile this model has into Sport 1000 S, distinguishes by featuring an early upper fairing and windscreen, but compete with the Thruxton any

Ducati’s GT 1000 though is the thing you’ll find to the Thruxton. This bike too is by past legends of the track so it classic lines, standard wheels and the Thruxton-like exhaust we’re aware that is not the ideal looking thing. it gets the air-cooled, 992cc, engine with two valves per Desmodromic developing 92 hp at 8,000 rpm and lb-ft at 6,000 rpm.

The uses a Marelli electronic injection with 45mm bodies while the gearbox is a unit so the maximum speed and the of the performance figures are clearly but style isn’t and that’s these bikes are all about.

When Triumph set out to create a interpretation of a big piece of their they had where to inspire; the racing bikes from the machines that lead to the racing frenzy gathering an number of fans in their Originally, this is how the British of a sports bike looked and while it wasn’t bad at all, saw Triumph lining up to the modern in this domain and Thruxton a bike for the versant.

Also with time, became more impressive ever before and the bike retains most of the original and feel so I guess we can say it is now lost on the line between old and new. is Thruxton’s main advantage, the old school look with the racing wheels, round and instruments and especially the low bars the mirrors positioned at each All these features have to do with the aggressively positioned

The gas tank is mounted down on the both for a low center of gravity and race bike look. under, the two air-cooled cylinders like still being despite the fact that injection is by far the most important that the bike got last With polished engine and side cases, those injectors don’t look out of just like the Thruxton exhaust don’t do either.

racer seats aren’t known for comfort, but in this the situation isn’t going to get in any way. The chromed rear springs are a nice distinctive but allow the bike to look its only when the rider is sitting on it. That’s when the fender looks better not to mention the passenger’s place.

Triumph definitely got the recipe from the very beginning as the idea also reflected by the Thruxton is to have a bike is long, low and as aerodynamic as possible if that means to sacrifice the jewels. This last is not retained by the modern bike.

For the color schemes don’t so the Jet Black with gold and Tornado Red with white remain the shiny racing ensuring that the bike to stand out. The special is the one representing this model this year and it is all about small fly screen and the way the Crystal paintjob with red stripe the red powder coated frame and engine covers, all giving the SE a much more appealing in comparison to its sibling.


Triumph had made an effort to the Thruxton a bit of engine character by the crank to a 360-degree firing over the Bonneville Scrambler’s but it’s all a bit muted. There’s no or excitement hinting at a racy and where the Sport 1000 genuine rapid progress the just ambles behind.

The motor felt crisp and pulling from below rpm in top gear. Midrange response was and there was a slight kick above 5000 rpm. And the twin was smooth all the way to its 7500-rpm motorcyclistonline

The Thuxton shines brightly in easy riding and sweeping canyon environments. Its handling comes from tires (100/90 x 18 front, x 17 rear) carried on spoke-wheels, yet the cradle-type frame provides stability, and ample ground is available from footpegs a higher, sporty-riding bias.

“To the uninitiated the Thruxton is best explained as a cross a sporting cruiser and a nakedbike. The way the operates is a little lazy, a cruiser, but the riding position, potential and all around ability of the puts it many steps any cruiser when it comes to pleasure” mcnews


though having virtually no the Triumph Thruxton comes an MSRP that starts at which is close to a Japanese motorcycle. Yet, it sells which means it has left riders intrigued about unique idea of a sports The price of the all-new 2010 Thruxton SE is to be announced.

If it for modern legislation requirements, would have most kept the Thruxton engine for years and years, but a fuel system modified so that it look like a pair of is just as good. The special model is in essence what the brings new compared to the previous year, so I guess we’ll be it changing only color from now on.
