The 2012 Triumph Thruxton 900 was introduced in 2004 and still goes strong today. This standard motorcycle is truly as much a classic as the 1960’s model motorcycle, just new. This classic bike is a beautiful marriage of vintage meeting new technology.
Jumping on this motorcycle is like jumping into the past with the large center stripe on the gas tank, the lowered handlebars, and mirrors. The engine box esthetically resembles parts of the past yet has the performance to today’s engines. This 865cc, four stroke, DOH parallel twin engine is air-cooled, fuel-injected and has an electric start. This manual, five-speed motorcycle can top speeds of 75 miles per hour (MPH). It has a 4.2 gallon tank and can get up to 57 miles per gallon (MPG).
In terms of design, the 2012 Triumph Thruxton features low slung handlebars that gives this powerful bike the retro and classic look. Not to mention that bad attitude look we have all come to love. The spoked alloy rimmed wheels combined with the central racing stripes help to make this one of those bikes that will always turn heads.
Classic old school style meets modern technology is what the 2012 Triumph Thruxton is all about. If you are looking for a classic yet powerful bike, this may just be what you are seeking.
