2011 Triumph Thruxton | Quick Look

2011 Triumph Motorcycle

Recent trends have brought the café racer style into the consciousness of hipster motorcyclists. With the loss of the Ducati SportClassic line, the Triumph Thruxton owns that category.

Reworked recently for a bit more comfort, the Thruxton sports laced wheels and a 320mm floating disc brake in the front.

A seat cowling gives the bike a solo look, while the racing stripe (white on the red version, yellow on the black), reverse megaphone exhaust, rearset pegs, dual shocks, cropped front fender, and bar-end mirrors complete an authentic look and feel.
