2025 Triumph Thruxton Final Edition
The 2025 Thruxton Final Edition marks the end of production for Triumph’s legendary cafe racer.

The Thruxton is dead, long live the Thruxton! The legendary Triumph Thruxton cafe racer, with a pedigree that goes back to the 1960s, will soon have its swan song: the 2025 Triumph Thruxton Final Edition marks the end of an icon.

At a press conference about the Thruxton Final Edition, James Wood, Triumph’s global marketing manager, said, “This decision [to end production of the Thruxton] was not taken lightly,” adding that the Speed Twin “has taken over the mantle as the sports classic in our lineup with its less over-the-bars ergonomics and its own aggressive poise and good looks.”

Introduced in 1964 as a limited-edition racebike, the Triumph Thruxton found early success in endurance races, claimed all three podium places at the 1969 Thruxton 500-mile race, and became the first production motorcycle to lap the Isle of Man TT Mountain Course at more than 100 mph. With a unique blend of style, handling, and performance, the Thruxton was beloved by sport-minded “ton-up” riders the world over.

In 2004, after Triumph was resurrected and found success under the direction of John Bloor, the modern Thruxton 900 made its debut, powered by a 69-hp air/oil-cooled parallel-Twin. But the performance potential of the legendary cafe racer got a boost in 2016 with the Thruxton R, with a “high power” variant of the 1,200cc parallel-Twin that boasted a peak of 96 hp and 83 lb-ft of torque.

The Triumph Thruxton Final Edition is based on the Thruxton RS and uses Triumph’s High Power 1,200cc parallel-Twin that produces a claimed 104 hp and 83 lb-ft of torque. Its 270-degree crankshaft layout emits a deep V-Twin-like exhaust note.

The most striking feature of the Thuxton Final Edition is its exclusive Competition Green paint scheme with hand-painted gold pinstripes. A special touch is that each bike is signed by the artist who painted it.

“This gold lining really is an expert skill with only a small handful of artists in our world-leading paint facilities trained to apply this detail,” said Wood. “Each line is hand-painted using specially developed paint applied in long continuous strokes to get that gorgeous finish.”

Each Thruxton Final Edition comes with a certificate of authenticity featuring the bike’s VIN number, which is signed by members of the Thruxton 1200 design team and Triumph CEO Nick Bloor. A unique Final Edition engine badge will also be supplied with each motorcycle, with a gold-finished surround and “Final Edition” graphic infill.

“This really is the final chapter in this incredible story,” said Wood, “and a motorcycle that provides an exclusive opportunity for riders to own a piece of history as part of the one last final production run.”

Fully adjustable suspension includes a Showa Big Piston inverted fork and Öhlins piggyback shocks. Lightweight 17-inch aluminum 32-spoke wheels are fitted with grippy Metzeler Racetec RR tires. Up front, Brembo M50 radial monoblock calipers provide high-performance braking backed up by ABS.

The Thruxton’s classic styling includes two round analog gauges with LCD insets that provide at-a-glance information including riding mode setting, gear-position indicator, fuel level, and odometer. Three ride modes (Sport, Road, and Rain) adjust throttle response and traction control to suit conditions. A USB charging port is standard.

Exclusive to the Final Edition, a dedicated accessory cockpit fairing is also available, color-matched to blend perfectly with the limited-edition Competition Green paint scheme.
