I wouldn't knock back a scrambler... as long as it was in addition to the wee beastie and the Kat :D

Spend 25k on a kat and the Thruxton won't know which way you went.

New watercooled Thruxton is supposed to make something like 120hp, reckon you'd get a rude surprise...

I stand corrected - the 'new-old' ones certainly didnt... they were just a tricked up 865 Bonneville parallel twin (which me old man has and its awesome fun to ride but certainly not 120hp - more like 65hp).

They must have released/made them into monsters!!!! Now I want one even more......

One of our vendor account managers has a Thruxton he bought earlier this year and just spent some $$$ on some go fast bits... he's now spewing he didn't wait...

Hells yeh he would be - 62% claimed torque increase up to 122Nm - HP figures not yet released - but the R with those specs and suspensions goodies would be an absolute beast!!!!
