To motorcycle enthusiasts, it may have seemed like the Triumph Thruxton 900 was around for over a decade, unchanged — because it was. The 900 impressed in 2004 when it was new, but by the time 2016 came around, there was no doubt it had overstayed its welcome. The 2016 Thruxton R isn’t just long overdue, it also has the pleasure of being an absolutely incredible bike from every angle. And it should be — it’s been in the making for the better part of a decade. Finally, beautifully, the wait is over.
