I kinda like this Thruxton Special Edition:
Hey that is my bike. Yes, 96 T Bird. Cans are predators ceramic coated. Only 63 RWHP but no one leaves her.
FWIW test rode a brand new Thruxton a year ago and really wanted to fall for it, loved the looks and hoped it had the feel of the old British twins (have owned a few)...but it felt appliance like and did not excite me much, sorta like a Honda CB350 excitement wise...rode a Ducati Monster the same day and bought it, had the vibe and the edge I was looking for
the 54 hp and 450 lbs. of the scrambler is a little weak imo. great looking bike though. The bonnie for some reason has 67hp a full 13 more then the scram. I believe the bonneville t-100 will be my next ride
The HP difference is because of the different crank shaft.
Any of the Bonnie twins will sound like a sewing machine with the stock exhaust. Many aftermarket options, including Triumph's own. Really gives the bike more character.
I went with the Bonneville T-100 and love it for what it is and I dont criticize it for what it is not.
Gives me plenty of smiles per miles.
