The 11 Best Triumph Motorcycles Ever Made – SlashGear

The Thruxton 1200 is named after a 500-mile endurance race in England where Triumph won three trophies between 1958 and 1971, and it is a fitting name for a classically-styled café racer. These are stripped-down motorcycles that were traditionally raced from London cafés back in the Swinging Sixties, and they typically featured minimal fairing plus instruments, solo saddles, and “clip-on” handlebars.

In keeping with this aesthetic, the particular Triumph Thruxton 1200 has all of the aforementioned classic qualities, but the bike is a truly modern machine. It has rider-assisting features, such as electronic riding modes, switchable ABS, and switchable traction control, so riders can opt for maximum safety or throw caution to the wind plus feel a better connection with the road surface (hopefully not literally). Additionally, it has Showa BPF forks, a slick six-speed gearbox, and, of course, the high-torque, twin-cylinder 1, 200cc engine that delivers 96 brake horsepower.

The Thruxton 1200 would be appreciated by those who yearn for the good old days associated with biking when motorcycles featured more chrome than fiberglass, and you did much of the particular maintenance yourself. This bike competently bridges the gap between classic and contemporary, delivering the best of both worlds as far as riding experience and timeless good looks are concerned.
