Triumph Thruxton 900cc

Racer culture

The Thruxton 900cc of 100% British origin, gives shape to this parallel twin that represents one of the bikes with more character and style within the Modern Classics range. Its characteristics make it a very complete bike that is an ideal base for any type of conversion. Its spirit embodies the purest Racer culture and makes it the dream of any 21st century biker.

Origin of the Thruxton 900cc

Leaving a mark

A few years ago, Triumph launched its interpretation of the bikes that followed the most classic Cafe Racer lines. The recipe was simple, it was based on the bestseller, the Bonneville, and was given a more racing look, without a doubt, in the style of the 60's: with semi handlebars, rounded cowl, higher exhausts and a more set back footrest.

An extension of the neoclassic's performance was one of several offerings from this successful model that was on the market for 15 years and is one of the big reasons for Triumph's line of air-cooled neoclassic bikes leaving its mark on an entire generation.

The bike quickly achieved its place in the market and that prompted the English brand to make some improvements, seeking above all to improve comfort. Together with the Triumph Bonneville T100, these two models formed the backbone of the whole neoclassic range of bikes that dominated the classic motorcycle market at the beginning of the 21st century.

Thruxton 900cc engine and range

Ready to roar

Its 865cc 4-stroke parallel twin engine with air-cooling ensures a powerful ride on a unique and legendary piece of machinery. It features a 5-speed gearbox with oil clutch and chain drive. Its competitive performance comes from 68 bhp at 7,400rpm and 69 Nm of torque delivered a little earlier, at 5,800 rpm.

Numbers aside, we can fill its precious 16-litre tank with 95/98 unleaded petrol and start roaring those two British megaphones.

Thruxton 900cc safety

A better driving experience

Its front suspension consists of a 41/120 mm preload adjustable telescopic fork with 41/120 mm bars from the Japanese brand Kayaba, which is also responsible for the rear suspension with two 106 mm shock absorbers, also with preload adjustment.

The brakes are also Japanese, Nissin, with two-piston calipers front and rear, and 320 mm and 255 mm discs respectively, the front disc being floating.

Its elegantly finished two-seater seat ensures enhanced comfort and, unless you're riding with a passenger, a cowl can be fitted to accentuate the Racer look.
