Triumph have released a very short teaser video announcing that they will unveil a Thruxton RS model at on Tuesday, November 5 (we expect this to be at the Eicma show in Milan).
The video gives away very little other than the bike name on a side panel, but this new model will presumably replace the Thruxton R in Triumph’s range.
We saw earlier in the year the pinnacle of what Triumph could achieve with the Thruxton in the form of the Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) version with carbon bodywork and upgrades to the brakes and suspension, so maybe we will see some of this carried over to the new model.
Given Triumph’s track record for bringing new bikes to market quickly, we would expect to see the Thruxton RS in dealers by spring 2020.
