Designing Triumph Thruxton 1200 Accessories and Parts
Triumph made it difficult for us to improve upon the Thruxton 1200, as the bike has such excellent aesthetics and performance straight off of the showroom floor. But there were a few things we noticed and wanted to create parts for.
Cosmetically, there were a few things that bothered us:
- Headlight Ears
- We weren’t fans of the silver, cast headlight ears. We designed and machined the Race Headlight Ears, finishing them in a gloss black, anodized finish to complement the bike's aesthetics.
- The Tail Light
- The taillight is bulky and does not match the bike's lines. The BC Team developed two Plug & Play tail light options to make upgrading the tail section easy: the Plug & Play Retro Tail Light and Plug & Play Fender Eliminator
- To work with our plug & play tail lights, we also developed the Plug & Play Retro Turn Signal Kits, available in LED or Halogen.
In addition to some of these lighting upgrades, we pride ourselves on our stainless steel exhaust systems. Our design team set out to develop compatible slip-on exhausts that would fit the Triumph Thruxton 1200 and came up with a full line of compatible slip-ons, including the Predator Pro, Shorty Predator Pro, Predator Carbon, and GP Exhaust. To accompany these slip-ons we designed and manufactured an X-Pipe Cat Delete system that would work with and boost the performance of factory and BC slip-ons.
