About Thruxton R

The Triumph Thruxton R is a sportier and more performance-biased version of the standard Thruxton café racer. Armed with a sophisticated suspension and brake setup and stickier tyres, the Thruxton R is the most expensive model in Triumph’s range of modern classic motorcycles.

The Triumph Thruxton R’s styling is similar to its standard sibling. It gets classic styling cues like a sculpted fuel tank, round headlamp, chromed clocks, round mirrors and orange tinted indicators. The clip-on handlebars and the slightly rear-set foot pegs offer a sporty riding position. The twin chromed upswept end cans have been tuned to croon a high bass exhaust note.

The Thruxton R is built on the same tubular steel cradle frame as the Bonneville and the Thruxton. This chassis houses a new 1200cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine, which churns out 112Nm of torque. The suspension setup is made of Show forks at the front and an Ohlins monoshock in the rear. Braking is taken care of by Brembo monobloc calipers, while the 17-inch spoke wheels come shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres.

The Thruxton is available in two paint schemes - diablo red and silver ice. It competes with the likes of the Indian Scout and the Harley-Davidson Forty Eight.

Triumph Thruxton R Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Gets a powerful engine 
    • Has good braking and suspension hardware  
  • Could be Better

    • Gearbox could be smoother 
    • Can be uncomfortable to ride in the city 
    • Needs wider service reach

BikeWale's Take

The Triumph Thruxton R boasts of a powerful 1200cc parallel-twin engine along with premium braking and suspension hardware to match. However, the old-school riding position means it could get uncomfortable to ride in the city.
