Ride the Triumph Thruxton R at MCN Festival

Published: 28 April 2016

With the new Thruxton and Thruxton R Triumph has produced a Thruxton worthy to carry the name to the next generation of owners - and it's available to test ride at the MCN Festival, May 14-15.

The styling and attention to detail lavished on the Thruxton is second to none. The parallel twin engine is quick and spins up rapidly thanks to a lightened crank. This is no brute, it’s an elegant motor with bags of refinement rather than pure brute force.

The R’s handling is right out of the top draw thanks to excellent brakes, suspension and chassis balance and the electronics marry the whole package together.

The Thruxton might look old school, but it rides anything but - find out for yourself at the MCN Festival.

Also available for test rides from Triumpn at the MCN Festival: Tiger Explorer XRT, Tiger 800 XRX Low, Speed Triple R, Street Twin, T120
