Living up to its legendary cafe racing name demands a truly modern standard of performance. Its why the new Thruxton RS introduces an updated Euro 5 twin 1200cc engine with major developments that give it 8PS more power, peak torque lower in the rev range, plus more amazing Thruxton character and an incredible British twin sound.
Increases in power across the whole rev range have been achieved through significant engine upgrades, including high compression pistons, revised ports and cam profile, and a secondary air system. There are also weight savings through the introduction of new components to include low inertia crankshaft, clutch, balance shafts, rare-earth alternator, magnesium cam cover and thin-walled engine covers.
All these together deliver a major increase in performance with an incredible 8PS more peak power than its predecessor, with 105PS @ 7,500rpm, and higher levels of power low-down and up through the range. Adding to the performance enhancement, the 112Nm Thruxton RS peak torque figure is now delivered 700 rpm lower in the rev range.
This new engine is also much more responsive with more character and, in keeping with Thruxton expectations, has a thrilling British twin sound. The engine updates contribute to a 20% reduction in inertia, so it now revs harder for longer, spins up faster, and achieves higher power output, with a red line thats 500rpm higher than the Thruxton R.
