Triumph is introducing a special edition of its café racer-styled Thruxton, giving a sporty new look to a classic British design.
The 865cc parallel-twin Thruxton Special Edition, named after the British racetrack where Triumph enjoyed enormous success in the 1960s, debuts a stunning red frame and Crystal White bodywork with red stripe. The bike also comes with a colour-matched factory fitted fly screen and blacked out engine cases.
Combining modern engineering with a retro sports look, the Thruxton has long been a popular choice among motorcyclists wishing to experiment with custom paint and the factory special edition introduces two premium colours to the Triumph range for the first time.
Crystal White is a brand new color for Triumph, containing a high metallic content to create a luxurious paint finish while the red powdercoated frame is also a first time feature.
Production of the new Triumph Thruxton Special Edition begins in early 2010. Prices are still to be confirmed but the SE model will come at a small premium over the standard Thruxton.
