The legend is back.
New ‘Thruxton’ spec. 1200cc engine
The legendary character of the Thruxton comes to life through the 1200cc ‘high power’ 8 valve, parallel twin Bonneville engine.
This all-new ‘low inertia - high performance’ six-speed engine features a lighter crank, higher compression and unique airbox. With the pinpoint accuracy and instant throttle response of Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection, fed by authentically styled twin throttle bodies, the Thruxton spec engine delivers a massive peak torque figure of 112Nm at 4950rpm - an amazing 62% more than the previous generation. With a higher power output of 97Ps at 6,750rpm, 41% up on the previous model’s engine, the new 1200cc Thruxton delivers much more power lower down and across the whole rev range, with an incredible 68% more power at 4,500rpm.
Beautifully styled, with a very high level of finish and detailing, the new engine, exhaust and throttle bodies incorporate cues from the original racing Thruxtons, whilst carefully integrating contemporary components to maintain that authentic look.
Behind the new 1200 engines stylish exterior sits a cutting-edge liquid cooling system, carefully integrated to minimise its visual impact whilst achieving cleaner emissions and enhancing fuel efficiency – 11% better than the previous generation. Combined with a new extended service interval of 10,000 miles, (16,000km), this contributes to a reduced overall cost of ownership.
The unmistakable sound of a British twin
A pair of new twin upswept exhausts with reverse-megaphone end cans that deliver a thunderous, rich bass exhaust note to match their powerful presence and performance. Finished in chrome on the Thruxton and brushed stainless steel on the Thruxton R.
The new Thruxton chassis and suspension is all about sharp handling that really delivers on its café racer looks. With sporting ergonomics, clip-on bars, fully adjustable suspension and 17inch front wheel, for stunning handling and agility, combined with Triumph’s signature ride dynamic of neutrality, agility and stability, the new Thruxton delivers a truly engaged and thrilling ride.
To deliver the high performance handling dynamic of its sports-orientated focus, the new Thruxton R benefits from cutting-edge chassis components and settings, not found on the standard Triumph Thruxton.

Representative Example, provided for illustration purposes only.
In PCP finance examples, the final payment is optional and is the minimum guaranteed value of the bike (providing the bike isn't damaged or beyond reasonable wear and tear for the age and mileage).
Your options at the end of a PCP agreement are to either hand the bike back to the finance company, use the bike as a part exchange against a new one or pay the final payment and take ownership of the bike.
In all cases of finance, the motorcycle belongs to the finance house until the final payment is made at the end of the agreement.
PCP agreements work best when you have a low deposit, want to have low manageable monthly payments and intend to part exchange or sell the bike at the end of the agreement. If you have a significant deposit, can afford higher monthly payments or plan to keep the bike beyond the term of the agreement then a finance proposal based on a regular monthly payment without a deferred final payment may provide the lowest total cost. We can talk you through all of the options we can offer.
