I went from a 2013 Thruxton AC to the 2016 Thruxton S WC, I still have both bikes and the old Thruxton not getting ridden much these days, the old Thruxton has more thump to the motor with the 360 swing but the new Thruxton has so much torque with the bigger engine, is a lot smoother, feels lighter and out handles the old Thruxton with stock suspension, I spent a lot of money to make the old Thruxton handle better, everything about the new Thruxton is so much better than the old one, I did a lot of miles on the old one but I plan on doing more miles on the new one, its just so much better, as for maintenance I think the new one be the same, but think the valve adjustments are a lot easier on the new one.
When I ride the old Thruxton it just feels so slow and feels heavy compared to the new one and I like the extra gear.
