Both Thruxton models are based on the Bonneville T120 engine and chassis but with an emphasis on power over torque. In many ways the Thruxton is a T120 with up swept exhausts, low clip-on bars, bar end mirrors and a cafe racer style hump on the seat.
The 17" wire spoked wheels take a Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa 120/70 tyre at the front and a 160/60 at the rear.
The R builds on the standard and 3 kg heavier Thruxton with a brushed Stainless Steel exhaust system, Brembo brakes at the front, Showa Big Piston fork, Ohlins rear suspension, seat hump cover, clear anodised swingarm and red seat detailing.
Accessories include heated grips (£189), cruise control, mini cafe racer fly screen (£72), full cafe racer fairing (£680), Vance & Hines performance exhaust kit, lower clip-on bars, panniers, comfort seat and bullet indicators.
