Thruxton 1200 R

Tech Spec

The Thruxton R delivers legendary character which represents the heritage and favoured history of the Thruxton. The colour shows fury; the Diablo Red look is a force to be reckoned with.

This engine emits limited disturbance to the riders smooth, comfortable ride. With the all-new 'low inertia - high performance' six-speed engine, the lighter crank and unique airbox system, the Thruxton R provides an experience like no other.

Twin throttle bodies, specced to deliver massive peak torque figures of 120Nm at 4950rpm, the Thruxton R aims to deliver unmatched performance across the entire rev range.

Similar to the Street Twin, the Thruxton delivers a thrilling ride, with the comfort and class of the Bonneville family.

Launched to international acclaim, the Thruxton R is arguably the most thrilling and full-blooded sports classic you can buy today. Building on the phenomenal Thruxton foundation, the ‘R’ takes things to a whole new level with a more engaged riding position from the kicked-up back end and smaller diameter grips, plus higher specification brakes, tyres and suspension, and beautiful styling details, like the stainless steel tank strap and polished top yoke.
