Triumph Thruxton R – The Modern Cafe Racer

Triumph Thruxton R Cafe Racer

Last Updated on 25/08/2020Old school looks but with all the mod cons! The Thruxton R is the cafe racer you were going to build when you managed to find the time. You know, buy an old bike and do it up, take it out on the roads and escape from the wife and kids for a few hours while you relive your youth.

At least, that was the day dream. The reality of a renovation project though is a bike that’s a pig to start, handles like a bag of spanners and will likely empty your bank account!

The Thruxton R gives you the the Cafe Racer vintage styling you wanted but without the headaches that come with a renovated bike. It starts first time and handles like a dream and OK, it’ll empty the bank but look at it, LOOK. AT. IT.
