The Thruxton 900 is such a faithful version of those often home-built, sixties racers - with adjustable front and rear suspension, aluminium rims and floating front disc - and takes its name from the rare and near mythic racing Triumphs of that era.
For 2007, the Thruxton has a revised stripe decal on the tank and seat cowl, a black engine with polished and lacquered covers, colour matched mudguards and a new Tornado Red paint scheme.
With its perfectly proportioned, evocative silhouette the Thruxton is a truly beautiful machine. It captures the very essence of the café racer look – the short-style front mudguard, rakish clip-on handlebars, distinctive seat hump and Spartan elegance – and matches it to exhilarating, fluid performance. Its 865cc air-cooled twin cylinder power plant is the most powerful of Triumph’s twin-cylinder line up. Wrapping the motor is a precisely crafted chassis that inspires confidence; its harder edge delivering real sporting character. The sturdy, preload adjustable 41mm telescopic forks and twin rear shocks give superb suspension action and compliance. A fully floating 320mm front disc and twin-piston brake caliper provide powerful, but sensitive, braking performance.
This is a bike that really involves the rider. The handling has plenty of feel with damping tuned for a sportier ride and pre-load adjustable front and rear suspension.
The Triumph Thruxton. Classic style of the sixties mixed seamlessly with a modern attitude.
