Complete Triumph

Ah, nostalgia: the roar of motorbikes racing through north London streets to the Ace Cafe back in the days of swinging London, frothy coffee and jukeboxes.

The Triumph Thruxton (£7,499) is inspired by this world, using 1960s design touches like dropped handlebars and upswept exhausts, as well as employing classic paint schemes and sports stripes reminiscent of the era. Its name's nostalgic, too – it’s christened after the British circuit where Triumph had success in production racing.

And it's not all style over substance: the 865cc engine puts out an impressive 69bhp. Right on.
