Triumph Thruxton Insurance

Triumph Thruxton

Thruxton is Triumph’s take on a modern café racer style motorcycle. It is based on the same frame & engine of a Bonneville, however, Thruxton is a completely different bike altogether. Design: 

  • Thruxton looks just like the café racer bikes of 1960 Britain.
  • Bike is completely retro in its styling with low narrow handle bars, long single seat, long fuel tank, round headlights, it has got it all.
  • FI system designed like carburettors, air cooled engine, twin upswept exhaust with spoke wheels complete the design of Thruxton.
  • The bike comes in two colour schemes; Brook lands Green & Phantom Black.
  • Bike’s dimensions are 2150 mm x 830 mm x 1095 mm (L x W x H) 

Power & Performance:

THRUXTON is powered by 865cc parallel twin engine. The power delivery is linear on THRUXTON with torque kicking in from as low as 1800RPM all the way up to redline. Vibrations only make their presence felt once past 5000RPM. The gearing is on the taller side, however, due to the even spread of torque changing gears is something which is not very necessary on this bike.

Braking & Handling:

Thruxton handles rather well for a bike of this size. Let’s face it, it is an old design almost 50 years old & so it is not going to light up tracks & carve canyons, no one should buy it for that reason. This bike is for a few hours of weekend ride. Though touring is possible but the seating position isn’t one for that. On long straights the bike stays confident. However, during the city rides in traffic you will definitely feel the weight thanks to the café racer style seating position.  THRUXTON has 41mm telescopic forks in the front & twin shock absorbers at the rear. It rides on 100/90 18’ front & 130/80 17’ rear wheels.

  • The seat on THRUXTON is really big but feels a little hard for longer rides.
  • THRUXTON gets a 320mm disc brake in front & a single 255mm disc at the rear.
  • As the bike is all about retro styling it sadly misses out on ABS & Traction Control system. 

What Insurance cover to opt for:

THRUXTON is a retro offering from Triumph with modern internals. Its old school charm sets it apart from any bike out there which makes it  a thief magnet. Also, being a CKD(Complete Knocked Down) the parts are imported from Britain & that makes it a costly bike to maintain.

  • THRUXTON is an attention magnet. That is why it’s a good idea to have an insurance that gives you complete cover from theft, vandalism (Which is a big problem in India).
  • 0% depreciation insurance will help in keeping your wallet heavy in case of any slip or fall.
  • Always prefer an insurance that gives you cashless benefit.
