Velocette Thruxton review

Velocette got its start in the world of sporting motorcycle racing back in 1905. They successfully produced several different models and quite a range of engine options before closing in 1971, the final year of production for the Thruxton.
The Velocette Thruxton (also known as Venom Thruxton) was designed in 1965 by Bertie Goodman. This motorcycle became almost an instant legend after a series of impressive results on various racing tracks, where its average speed often exceeded 100mph.  

Velocette Thruxton Venom


 Originally, the company designed the Thruxton to be an endurance racing bike, but only managed to produce just over 1,100 models before they closed their doors in 1971. The bike featured the company’s unique fishtail silencer, as well as a close-ratio gearbox and alloy rims. All models of the Thruxton were "production” bikes, meaning that they were available for purchase to consumers, rather than being strictly geared for the racing community. However, the bike was never really intended as a daily driver, and could be more than a little difficult under normal driving conditions. More specs and user manual of Truxton Venom you can see in next overview.
