Triumph Thruxton Ace Special Edition Arrives in Amazing Style

The names of Triumph and the Ace Café are linked way beyond our power of understanding, as these two are iconic landmarks in Britain’s motorcycling history. To mark down this bond, Triumph has created the Thruxton Ace Special Edition, a limited-run machine which epitomizes the classic heritage embodied in a modern-tech machine.

The Thruxton Ace Special Edition evokes the classic profile of the café-racer, with is fluid and voluptuous silhouette, adorned with bespoke Ace Café decals on the side panels, tank and tail section. The wheels are alloy wire-spoked, a perfect classic match to the low-slung bars and the custom bar-end mirrors. The handlebars also have a plaque which states the Special Edition nature of this Thruxton.

Triumph chose a minimalist livery, with a Pure White tank and Jet Black side panels and a racing stripe design which leaves no room for mistakes. And oxblood custom seat replaces the standard one, but the engine remained untouched, the same 865cc, 68 hp, 72Nm (53 lb-ft) parallel twin, with its classic megaphone silencers and iconic rumble.

Optional accessories include a variety of alternative seats, Arrow exhausts and chrome parts. Only 100 Triumph Thruxton Ace Special Edition bikes will be fabricated, and dealers are already taking deposits. The bikes will arrive in showrooms around December.

With the UK on the road base price of the Thruxton being £7,699 ($12,525 or €9,665), we can expect that the Thruxton Ace Special Edition will come for a small premium. Awesome, just like all the SE Triumph bikes!
