Thruxton R review
Submitted by Steve Farrell on Mon, 07 Mar 2016

IT'S funny how riding a bike can change your mood and mind-set. The machine that just did it for me is the new Triumph Thruxton R.

Journalists rode it after a morning on the new T120 Bonneville. That's a very likeable bike, which you can read more about in my full review of it, but it took an instant on the Thruxton R to know this was something very different. It might have been the rumbling engine note, a rumble you feel as much as hear. It might have been the focused riding position, with clip-on bars and weight on your arms. It might have been the sharp steering and powerful brakes. It might have been the burst of torque from 2,000rpm.

Probably it was all these things. The message is: engage your brain and put your riding head on, because this is a bike for tear-arsing around.
