The Ace Cafe is widely recognized as the birthplace of cafe racer culture, so it’s no surprise that Triumph has done more than a few cafe-inspired designs over the years. Those familiar with the culture will undoubtedly know the expression “do the ton,” which means take a motorcycle to 100 mph. As the quickest bike in the Bonneville lineup and one of the best representations, if not the best, of a modern cafe racer, the Thruxton RS seemed the obvious choice for this special Ton Up Edition, inspired by the ton-up boys who often occupied the cafe. With its Aegean Blue fuel tank, black knee pad graphics, and the white cafe seat cowl with its large red “100″ graphic, there’s no mistaking the new Ton Up Edition. A full color-matched cockpit fairing is also available as an accessory for riders who want the full-faired look. Priced at $17,300, the Thruxton RS Ton Up Edition is only $800 more than the base Thruxton RS model.
