I got a translation from a friend of someone on another forum; Quote: I sent the link you posted to a girl I know in Germany. Here's what she said his comments were (you'll have to allow for the fact that its not a perfect translation; and for example I know its not going to be faster at a track than an R6 of course; the point he made is probably something about drive out of corners). Triumph Thruxton R - 2016 Race Track Test | Pannoniaring (in Austria) He was not happy at the beginning because there was a lot of traffic at the race track. He was not so happy with the brakes, he will check it after the test again. There is something not ok with the break pump. The motor is perfect, better than expected, same with the gear The footrests are a little bit too long for extreme curves. The sloping position is not good for every race track, there is a danger to get at the ground with the exhaust and maybe damage something. You may move on the seat quite good, but the seat is too broad at the rear and the rear-vision mirrors are a little bit disturbing during race. The anti-lock braking system may be switched off very easily, also the traction control. Same for the drive modes (road, sport, rain). Both is easy to switch on or off in some seconds only. The motor is very elastic, therefore you do not realize / recognize the traction control if activated. He did not race extreme, because the bike is more for cruising than for racing. But even if the bike is very easy and smooth to handle on the normal street, at the race track it also was very good handling. This was a positive surprise for the tester. But you have to be more concentrated. The tires are road tires but a good compromise for the race track. The motor need 6 liters in race mode. The bike was faster than the R6 for example, especially after curves. All in all a wonderful experience, not for professional racing but for some fun on the track very good.
