Farewell To An Icon: Triumph Unveils Thruxton Final Edition

For nearly six decades, the Triumph Thruxton has been a beloved symbol of British motorcycling, embodying the spirit of café racers. Now, as an iconic era draws to a close, Triumph has pulled out all the stops to bid adieu to this legendary model with a bang. Meet the Triumph Thruxton Final Edition, a masterpiece of design and engineering that marks the culmination of a glorious history.

Harking back to 1964 when it was first introduced, the Triumph Thruxton has won hearts the world over for its timeless style and impressive performance. Now, as it prepares to take its final bow in 2024, Triumph has unveiled a fitting tribute in the form of the Thruxton Final Edition. This exclusive motorcycle promises to be a collector’s dream, combining the best elements of its predecessors and wrapping it all in a package that’s impossible to resist.

While the Thruxton Final Edition is based on the Thruxton RS, it’s far from being just another variation. This limited-edition gem is the result of decades of Thruxton development, featuring sublime performance, agile handling, and a premium specification that’s sure to leave motorcycling enthusiasts in awe.

Visually, the Thruxton Final Edition is a sight to behold. It’s resplendent in an exclusive Competition Green paint scheme with hand-painted gold lining, each one personally signed by the artist. This elegant color scheme pays homage to the Thruxton’s rich racing heritage, combining the style and traditional elegance of the RS.

But this isn’t just a motorcycle; it’s a piece of history. Each Thruxton Final Edition comes with a certificate of authenticity bearing the bike’s unique VIN number. These documents are signed by members of the Thruxton 1200 design team and Triumph’s CEO, Nick Bloor, adding a personal touch to every unit. Additionally, a unique Final Edition engine badge with a gold-finished surround and ‘Final Edition’ graphic infill will accompany each motorcycle, making it a remarkable display piece.

For those lucky enough to own one, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to possess a rare piece of Triumph history and experience the ultimate Thruxton at the pinnacle of its development.
