1962. Triumph’s Bonneville won Britain’s prestigious Thruxton 500. The manufacturer celebrated by designing the iconic T120 Thruxton. Fifty years later, the classic is reborn. This street fighter’s polished engine cover, low rise bars, sporty riding position, “crystal white” body work and red striping are nostalgic. Underneath the retro design is 21st century engineering with an 8-valve, fuel-injected, 865cc twin engine built on a 360 degree crankshaft.

Pre-Safe Technology engages the brakes when an imminent rear-end collision is detected. Traffic Jam Assistant sustains a safe following distance and maneuvers though curves at speeds under 25 MPH. Green has never looked so good.
