Triumph Thruxton 400 Spied

Triumph Thruxton 400 spotted, third iteration of Bajaj-Triumph 400cc platform

The collaboration between Bajaj and Triumph has been making waves in the mass market segment and the latest addition to their lineup is likely to be the Triumph Thruxton 400 that has been spotted testing abroad. This new offering is set to bring the visual appeal of a Cafe Racer to the hot new 400cc segment.

Cafe Racers have always captivated motorcycle enthusiasts with their unique design language and the Triumph Thruxton 400 is no exception. It draws inspiration from its elder siblings. Spy shots reveal a neo-retro aesthetic, featuring a distinctive bikini fairing that extends to the bottom of the fuel tank, giving it a muscular and aggressive appeal.

The round LED headlight, reminiscent of the Speed 400, adds a classic touch while the fairing’s sporty cuts and creases contribute to its overall character. There is a transparent windshield that looks cool and will offer marginal wind protection for riders.

The Thruxton 400 will share its platform with the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400X. It is equipped with USD front forks similar to the Speed 400 in black finish. The radiator positioning, exhaust routing and end can closely resemble those of the Speed 400. However, the Thruxton 400 introduces clip-on handlebars for a sportier riding position. Bar end mirrors, seat, subframe and wheels remain consistent with its platform siblings.

The Triumph Thruxton 400 is most likely to share the same engine of the Speed 400. The 398.15cc single-cylinder DOHC liquid-cooled engine produces 39.5 BHP at 8000 RPM and 37.5 Nm of torque at 6500 RPM. It is equipped with ride-by-wire throttle, slip and assist clutch and a 6-speed gearbox.

With the prototype closely resembling the production model, it is expected that the Bajaj-Triumph duo could launch the Thruxton 400 as early as mid-2024.
