Triumph Boneville Thruxton

Recommended Posts

ceco

Triumph's latest twin is the chronological and spiritual equivalent of the American chopper, even though it doesn't actually fit within that (or any other) cruiser genre. It bringa bigger, more powerful engine to the Bonneville line.

The new Thruxton, named for a hand-built version of the Triumph Bonneville of the early 1960s built in Triumph's race shop and named for a British racetrack, recalls the cafe racers created by Brit enthusiasts during that same period. That was the era when Americans were beginning to build choppers in significant numbers. (The name was also used for the most popular model built by Velocette, Britain's last maker of big single-cylinder motorcycles.)

This new 900 Thruxton accurately mimics those English customs with low clubman-style handlebars, rearset footpegs and controls, a racing-style humpbacked solo saddle, and a reverse-megaphone-style muffler (though the bikes of the period would have had two of them, not the single item on the 900.)

The new bike is notable not only for its return to authentic British roots but also because it brings a bigger (865cc instead of 790cc) and more powerful (69 horsepower) version of the current Bonneville twin-cylinder engine. In addition to more displacement it uses new carburetors and hotter cams. The engine also gets polished cases. Some of these changes could find their ways into future Triumph twin-cylinder cruisers.

videl! dobro retro izdelana zadeva, osebno so mi všeč bolj boneville modeli z prav tako paralelnim twinom. zgledajo manjši in tako bolj podobni "originalom". bo pa verjetno zvoke tega motorja fenomenalen.

Hmm, Hudooooo, ampak res , edina stvar ki si jo resnično želim je da bi BMW naredil retro motocikel na temo in slog njihovih legend iz 40-ih in 50-ih.

Ma potem pa tudi japonca za bavarca zamenjam!

Zoolo the Horrible!

:zzz: Ne razumem zakaj bi kdo hotel kupiti _novo_ relikvijo. Oldtimerji - ok, ampak nov motor s tehnologijo in obliko starega. Zakaj?

Tuki ni kej velik stare tehnologije! Je pa oblika res retro oz. celo več -stara! Če si ljubitelj oldtimerjev in bi rad mel še en motor ki zgleda ko star in stajliš, lahko pa narediš 15.000 km na leto brez težav - super a ne

Ob takemle motorju mi je zelo žal da ne živim v velikem mestu z velikim mestnim jedrom, ki ni zaprt za promet in ima veliko cafe-tarnic.

Lepo, lepo. Ampak retro gor ali dol, dva diska spredaj bi mu lahko privoščili, glede na to da verjetno ni lahkokategornik.

No tole pa je že nekje leta 74, malce bolj "športna" verzija. Motor pa seveda še vedno triumph in seveda jaz mlajši za nekaj let več kot četrt stoletja :(
