The new Thruxton R has been
launched in India at Rs 10,90,000 (Ex-showroom Delhi). Out of all the members of the new Bonneville
family, the new Triumph Thruxton R has the most to live up to. Its name is
about as legendary as it gets, even for an icon like the Bonneville. Back in the
1960s and ’70s it was synonymous with Triumph’s racing success across the world
and most notably at the Isle of Man TT, and it inspired a generation of teenage
café racers and custom specials.
The all-new Thruxton R is all
about power that is delivered by its 1200cc ‘Thruxton spec’ engine. It is
simply the most thrilling and full-blooded sports classic you can buy here in
India. The Thruxton R is equipped with Brembo monobloc callipers, Showa big
piston forks, Öhlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa Tyres.
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
café racers and something which will enthral the riders here in India. The
legend is back.”
Triumph Motorcycles currently
sells 15 International models here in India and has already sold close to 3000
units in over 2 years of operations in the country. The company has sold over
100 Bonneville Street Twins in less than 2 months.
