Triumph Bids Farewell To Its Thruxton Café Racer with a Final Edition Motorcycle

First opened in 1950, the Thruxton Circuit is a 2.35-mile road racing circuit that’s often referred to as the UK’s fastest race track. As such, the Thruxton monicker was a perfect name for the limited production, hand-built version of the Bonneville T120 that Triumphed first debuted in 1965. Just under four-decades later and the Hinckley firm would revive this nameplate for its ultimate take on a retro-inspired production cafe racer — a 900cc model that remained in production for just four years before being revive once again in 2016 in its heavily-updated 1,200cc form. Since that time, the Thruxton has been a staple in Triumph’s lineup, receiving tweaks and updates with each new model year. Now, after roughly 20 years in production, the British bike-maker has announced that it will be pulling the plug on the much-beloved two-wheeler, however, before doing so, it will be giving the bike one final sendoff in the form of a limited run of Triumph Thruxton Final Edition motorcycles.

Touted as being the highest specification version of the Thruxton ever produced, the Final Edition variant comes loaded top-of-the-line componentry including Brembo radial-mount M50 Monobloc calipers, an inverted 43mm Showa fork, ully-adjustable Öhlins rear shocks, and 32-spoke 17” wheels shod in Race-spec Metzeler Racetec RR tires. Triumph has also treated the Thruxton Final Edition to its cockpit half-fairing — an item that’s normally an optional add-on that now comes as standard. At the heart of the bike is the regular Thruxton’s same two-cylinder engine — a 1,200cc parallel-twin that cranks out 103hp and 83ft-lbs of torque at 7,500rpm and 4,250rpm, respectively.

Adorning the bodywork of each bike is a special Competition Green metallic paint scheme. Featuring a high-gloss finish, this main hue has been complemented via blacked-out side covers and fenders, and gold pin-striping that’s been laid down entirely by hand. What’s more, all of the Final Edition-spec Thruxtons also feature an exclusive  gold-finished alternator badge that sports a special ‘Final Edition’ graphic infill. Additionally, each of these limited edition cafe racer motorcycles is also sold with an accompanying, individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity that features each unit’s unique Vehicle Identification Number, along with the signatures of the Thruxton’s design team and Triumph CEO, Nick Bloor.
