Spotlight on the Triumph Thruxton R


The all-new Triumph Thruxton R is the top-of-the-range model in Triumph’s Modern Classics range.  Like all models in the new classics range, the Thruxton R has ride-by-wire throttle for smooth power delivery and punches out an impressive 120Nm of torque at just 4950 rpm – that’s 62% higher than the previous model.

The Thruxton R builds on the sharp styling and performance of the standard Thruxton, with additional equipment such as Brembo Monobloc calipers, Showa big piston forks, Ohlins rear suspension, Pirelli Diablo Corsa tyres and colour-matched seat cowl.  2 colour options are available: Diablo Red or Silver Ice.


The Thruxton R comes with ABS,  three selectable Rider Mode options (road, rain, and sport), Traction Control, slip assist clutch, LED rear lights, USB charging socket, heated grips (with a 3-mode setting), and a neat fingertip control scroll button for easy access to the key features on the new digital clocks.

Triumph are offering several custom ‘inspiration kits‘ for the new classics range. Here’s the Track Racer kit for the Thruxton & Thruxton R which includes a sculpted cockpit fairing with lower clip-on handlebars, Vance & Hines slip-on silencers, rear mudguard removal kit, compact LED rear light, compact LED indicators, single painted seat cowl (for Thruxton only – the seat cowl is standard on the Thruxton R), knurled handlebar grips,  and leather tank strap.



Price for the Thruxton R is expected to be around £11,800 on the road and we hope to have these bikes available around end of June 2016.  We are taking advance orders now, so call us to reserve your new bike !
