      Yes.
      My wife's Street Triple parks next to my Hawk...... and the Hawk says those extra 28cc are in all the
      right places. The Thruxton has great looks. Triumph has done very well blending the new tech with
      retro style. The carbs.....oh, not carbs, those are throttle bodies.....brilliant.

        LOL.......what's old is new again! That's a Paul Dunstall fairing design. That thing is about as practical as the Duc Paul Smart model.......enjoy the cramping of your forearms! It does look well appointed!

              What a beauty! Nice choice. How does it compare with the hawk?

                The weight seems very low down which makes the bike feel light and is superb in the twistys, it has loads of torque and will pull in any gear like the Hawk .but itís the brakes and suspension which set it aside from the Honda
                It does make you realise how good a design the Hawk is all these years on and why it has such a following in the US and over here.
                All I can say is bikes come and go but I have owned a Bros or Hawk for nearly 30 years and will never be without one

                    When I commuted on the Bros it was fine with standard brakes and suspension but for scratching about my favourite Bros had the CBR600 forks and fire blade rear shock but I put it through a dry stone wall in Derbyshire and that was the end of that one, I still have the front forks (bent) and the rear shock.... ....maybe one day
