Triumph Gets a Facelift

Triumph is the current leader in the modern classic department. For years their bikes have redefined classic good looks with modern performance, but recently they have been getting a bit too good at the vintage aspect and not so much the modern performance department. Until now.

For months triumph has been teasing the new lineup of bikes and very successfully build up the hype around their classic division. While the preview bikes look great they began severely lacking in power. No longer is this an issue with the current line up. The new Thruxton R is up 68% in power across the rev range and has been bumped up to nearly 100 horsepower. No longer is it a fast looking bike, it fills that role nicely.

The other much needed update is with the Boneville t120. Triumph has listened to their customers demands and a blacked out engine gives the new Bonnie a sleek look that compliments its dark exhaust and raspy note. Also new are dual floating front disks because hey who likes dying.
