Triumph finally offer their Thruxton R ‘racer kit’ as standard (for December at least!)

It’s basically the perfect, factory-custom Café Racer for Christmas.

With the Triumph Thruxton R costing £12,200 in top spec, it’s not exactly the cheapest retro-racer on the market, especially if you add the almost obligatory custom accessories from the official catalogue.

So despite it being universally loved by pretty much everyone who has ridden it, there are now newer and comparable Cafés on the market now that will also save you a pretty packet – take the £10,500 BMW R NineT Racer for example.

But now Triumph are doing what they perhaps should have done all along and are bundling the £1,950 Track Racer Kit in with every new purchase*.

Okay, so it’s not actually standard with every purchase – because you have to request it – but with the Café Racer fairing, a fender removal kit, brushed stainless steel slip-on exhausts, front and rear, short-stem LED indicators, that leather tank strap and grey diamond knurl handlebar grips, why wouldn’t you choose all of that lot for free?

*You’ll have to be quick though – and from the UK – because it’s a region-specific deal and is only available until December 31st.

    I’m glad the Thruxton comes naked and that is how mine will remain. If I bought one today, I’d be happy with the proceeds of the sale of the track racer stuff..
