First ride: Thruxton 904 Ace Special
Few bikes tick the boxes in so many ways as Triumph's Thruxton. Its big, meaty air-cooled parallel twin-cylinder engine has chunky power all the way through the revs and it¹s as enjoyable purring through town as it is blasting through tree-lined country roads on a sunny Sunday morning.
It's also comfortable, loves corners and always draws a crowd. With its retro metal Triumph badge fitted lovingly to its 16-litre fuel tank, it makes you proud to be British.
This is the latest hot Thruxton the Thruxton 904 Ace Special (or 904S for short) which takes the concept of mixing old with new to a whole new level.
Commissioned by the Ace Cafe and Stonebridge Motor Company, the 904S is built by Tony Scott of T3 Racing (who run the Triumph Triple Challenge one-make Daytona 675 race series). Only 15 will be built and will cost £15,999.
