Significantly Enhanced Fuel Economy

Behind the appearance of the 1200cc Thruxton spec engine is a sophisticated liquid cooling system that has been carefully developed to minimize its visual effect while providing lower emissions and improved fuel economy – 11% better than the previous generation. When combined with a new longer service interval of 10,000 miles (16,000km), the total ownership cost decreases.

Thrilling 1200cc Engine

The 1200cc, high-power, 8-valve parallel-twin engine brings the Thruxton’s iconic character to life. The Thruxton and Thruxton R’s ‘low inertia – high performance’ six-speed engine has a lighter crank and airbox. The Thruxton spec engine provides a massive peak torque figure of 112Nm at a low 4950 rpm – an astounding 62 percent more than the previous generation – thanks to the pinpoint accuracy and instantaneous throttle response Triumph’s next generation ride-by-wire fuel-injection, fed by authentic twin throttle bodies. The new 1200cc Thruxton offers substantially more power lower down and over the whole rev range, with an impressive 68 percent more power at 4,500rpm, 41 percent more than the previous model’s engine.

Beautiful Style and Sound

The Thruxton 1200cc high power engine is beautifully crafted with a high degree of finish and quality, including aesthetic elements from the Thruxton Bonneville while incorporating current engine components to keep that original appearance.
