Triumph Motorcycles have shared with MotorMartin that they are to be the latest addition to The Confused.com London Motor Show’s ‘Built In Britain’ feature, where they will showcase two stylishly crafted bikes from their impressive modern classic range.
The Leicester-based manufacturer will be displaying the beautifully imposing and iconically-styled Thruxton 1200 R – which is arguably the most thrilling and full-blooded sports classic motorcycle you can buy. The cafe racer is equipped to the highest specification with twin floating Brembo discs, Brembo monobloc calipers, Showa Big piston forks, Öhlins rear suspension and Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres.
Parked alongside the Thruxton R will be the brand new Bonneville Bobber Black. After the Bobber became the fastest-selling motorcycle in Triumph’s 115-year history when it was launched in 2016, the company has taken the model to new heights to deliver a darker, meaner and stronger bike.
Originating from Coventry, Triumph was first born as a bicycle company in 1887. Even through its first motorised cycle was produced in 1902, the group has kept its British roots – every Triumph motorcycle begins its life in Hinckley, Leicestershire, where all of its design work, prototype construction and engineering takes place.
The all-new ‘Built In Britain’ feature will display the very best of British automotive manufacturing and motoring, with a host of vehicles from well-known brands, commemorating the nation where vehicle design and production all take place.
Alec Mumford, Chairman of The Confused.com London Motor Show, Explained to MotorMartin that: “Triumph Motorcycles is an iconic representation of British design and production. We are proud to have not just one, but two of its bikes displayed at this year’s show. Both the Bonneville Bobber Black and the Thruxton R will be among many more examples of national automotive excellence in the all new ‘Built In Britain’ area.”
