2013 Triumph Thruxton

The classicly styled Triumph goes head to head a similar Moto Guzzi, out how it performs in our 2013 Triumph comparison video .

Triumph defines the production café class with its Thruxton Although it’s been a since it received an overhaulwith its good looks and the stone axe of its Parallel Twin engine really hard to find with the British bike.

in the controls the Triumph fits the like a worn-in leather The clip-ons are positioned low and the footpegs are far back on the frame which may be a for some riders, but worked for us. It’s for sure less as compared to the Moto Guzzi for around town but you can’t but feel like you’re a part of the machine when inside the Thruxton.

It’s relationship that makes it so to ride on an open road. The carves through corners in a manner than the V7 Stone the suspension damping is plush and a fine job of soaking up imperfections on and bumpy road.

Around town the low clip-ons and the rearward position of the footpegs it more cumbersome to maneuver, at parking lot speeds. It’s that you feel the Triumph’s weight too. Despite less fuel (a 4.2-gallon versus the MG’s 5.8) the weighs 67 pounds more, the scales at 506.

Compounding is the marginally 0.7-inch taller It’s these factors make the Triumph a little challenging to ride at slow

“When you’re on the highway or around corners the Triumph really well,” shares “But when you’re in a parking lot or riding around or through a series of traffic the Triumph just feels of awkwardespecially with how far back the are.”

Thumb the starter and the Triumph’s Twin fires to life zero hesitation whether the is hot or cold. It also requires no idling or warm-up time it can be ridden away cleanly. it’s hard not to be impressed the engine whine and exhaust emitted from its twin pipes. It’s a far more sound which rewards the rider more so than the drone of the V7’s Twin.

The also vibrates much which in turn, allows for a picture from the rearview

Sound testing demonstrated the Triumph posted identical reading at idle compared to the Guzzi (78 dB). Get the motor at 4000 rpm (half of maximum speed) however and we measured 96 point louder than the Guzzi, making it more to attention from cars and neighbors (bad).

Twist the throttle and the Triumph deliver as much acceleration out of the as compared to ‘Guzzi’s low-end monster of a motor. But get the tachometer pointing north of 5000 and the Thruxton gets with the and actually delivers both torque and horsepower up through its rpm redline. Peak torque at 6500 rpm with 47.77 availablejust over seven than the Guzzi.

But the big difference in is measured in horsepower with the mill generating almost 21 more than the Italian This gives the Thruxton a versatile powerband that can be by all riders.

“It’s pretty that the Triumph has a better says Garcia. “Not is it smoother, but it delivers a broader of power. It also vibrates a lot and sounds fantastic.”

Despite its extra weight the got rolling to 60 mph from a stop in seconds compared to the V7’s of 5.31 seconds. It also better through the quarter with a time of 13.6 at 100 mph. That’s 1.28-seconds than the Guzzi at a 13-mph trap speed, too.

The drivetrain also proved to better. While the clutch more or less the same as the inside the Moto Guzzi the gearbox was more precise mis-shifts far less frequent. It offered a shorter shift throw between each and made it simple to find first gear and neutral.

Although both motorcycles use of a simple but effective single disc brake front and the British bike’s set-up to feel and perform a little During a simulated panic from 60 mph the heavier Triumph was to stop in four fewer than the Moto Guzzi vs. 152).

The brakes also like they worked too offering superior feel made them easier to use the limit of traction.

Since it has more engine capacity we surprised that the Triumph lower fuel mileage Throughout mixed freeway, and canyon riding we averaged mpg compared to the ‘Guzzi’s 44.4 mpg This gives the Thruxton a of around 174 miles which a bit short of the V7’s estimated range.

In spite of its small comings, a list that the demanding riding position and the few pounds it carries, the Triumph is a motorcycle. It offers just performance to keep a big smile your helmet plus the sounds so delightful that you can’t help yourself riding it hard. It also is refined with fewer and quirks that can take a bit of the fun away from riding.

It’s these reasons why you buy English when it comes to ride your own piece of history.
