Motorcycle Review: 2012 Triumph Café Racer-Styled Thruxton

The 865cc Thruxton Special Edition, named after the British racetrack where Triumph enjoyed enormous success in the 1960s, debuts a stunning red frame and Crystal White bodywork with red stripe. The bike also comes with a colour-matched factory fitted fly screen and blacked out engine cases.

Combining modern engineering with a retro sports look, the Thruxton has long been a popular choice among motorcyclists wishing to experiment with custom paint and the factory special edition introduces two premium colours to the Triumph range for the first time.

Crystal White is a brand new color for Triumph, containing a high metallic content to create a luxurious paint finish while the red powdercoated frame is also a first time feature.
Production of the new Triumph Thruxton Special Edition begins in early 2012.

Triumph is introducing a special edition of its café racer-styled Thruxton, giving a sporty new look to a classic British design.

Triumph is the largest surviving British motorcycle manufacturer. When the Triumph Engineering Co Ltd went into receivership in 1983, John Bloor bought the name and manufacturing rights from the Official Receiver.

The new company continued Triumph's record of motorcycle production since 1902, making it the world's oldest surviving motorcycle manufacturer after Royal Enfield.
