Triumph Motorcycles has launched the Thruxton R at Rs. 10.90 lakhs as promised by the company during the 2016 India Bike Week that was held in Goa. The company had launched the other two bikes from its Bonneville range – Street Twin and T120 earlier this year at the mentioned event. The launch of the Thruxton R completes the Bonneville range in India and offers a classic cafe racer experience to its customers. Gul Panag was present at the event and took delivery of her own new Triumph Bonneville T120.
The Triumph Thruxton R is powered by a 1,200cc parallel twin engine that develops 96 BHP of power at 6,750 RPM and a torque of 112Nm at 4,950 RPM. The engine is mated to a 6-speed and features a low inertia crank, which allows the engine to rev more freely through the gears. The Thruxton R is equipped with Brembo monobloc callipers, Showa big piston forks, Ohlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tyres. The Thruxton R comes with a retro design language with a round headlight with LED DRLs, a 3D instrument cluster and LED taillights.
Vimal Sumbly, Managing Director, Triumph Motorcycles, India, said, “Its uncompromisingly elegant and imposing lines are perfectly matched by the quality of the design, detailing, power and performance, and the incorporation of contemporary technology into a ride that’s as poised as it is exhilarating. This combination of head-turning style, spine-tingling performance and unparalleled heritage and character is what makes the new Thurxton R the real deal as well as the ultimate modern classic cafe racers and something which will enthral the riders here in India. The legend is back.”
