With the Thruxton you’ll be able to,( maybe/hopefully) push the envelope of its design, feel as if you’re using 90% of its capabilities, relive the days of yore, pretend you’re poppin’ round the Ace Café to chat up some bird, and do a ton up knowing damn well you’re making that vertical twin earn its keep. Speed is more than a number and breaking into the triple digits on a Thruxton is,( subjectively) faster just as downhill skiing at 40mph is different than doing it in a Lincoln Continental and for the same reason, because your brain is telling your adrenal glands “AAAH! We’re gona DIE!” Plus, you’ll be able to give some sedans, almost all minivans and quite a few American bikes a run for their money! Cool, eh?
