Triumph Launches 2010 Thruxton Special Edition
The new bike gets new styling features, while the powerplant remains unchanged. After all, you can't but agree with us when we say that you don’t necessarily need enormous power or a huge top speed to enjoy a good time on two wheels.
The 865 cc parallel-twin Thruxton Special Edition, named after the British racetrack where Triumph enjoyed a great deal of success in the 1960s, outputs a claimed 68 horsepower and 51 lb-ft of torque.
“The Thruxton has long been a popular choice among motorcyclists wishing to experiment with custom paint and the factory special edition introduces two premium colours to the Triumph range for the first time,” a company statement reads.
Crystal White is a brand new color for Triumph, containing a high metallic content to create a luxurious paint finish while the red powder coated frame is also a first time feature.
Prices are still to be confirmed but, as the manufacturer says, the SE model will come at a small premium over the standard Thruxton, which is around 5,500 British pounds (or $9,000).
