2010 Triumph Thruxton

Triumph will once again sell the cafe racer version of the Bonneville – the Thruxton – in 2010. With minimal changes from last year, and similar colours, there is not much to report on here.

The press release from Triumph mentions the Thruxton has a revised odometer, and obviously it still runs the same fuel injected 68 horsepower 865cc twin.


2010 colour choices include Red with a White stripe, and Black with Gold striping.

If you havent ridden a Thruxton, or for that matter a Bonneville, do yourself a favor and take a test ride, they are a great fun motorcycle.

Also due out this year is an SE version of the Thruxton.
