don't like it...any company that steals another bikes name I wouldn't buy it....that is a Velocette scooter name and it was bad ass I may add...now if it were the Velocette company which no longer exists hell yes nice start there..

um, Thruxton was a airfeild converted to a motorcycle racetrack in england in the 50's

velocette got the model name from the same place and the same reason in the same timeframe triumph did (within a couple years)

nobody "stole" anything
that is the reason why Triumph took the name is because of that bike made by Velocette in the 50's..if Velo thought of taking it from a airstrip kudo's to them atleast they didn't hijack it from another bike..be like Harley naming a fat boy a Vincent Black Shadow that would be pretty lame don't ya think?

wrong.
velocette thruxton was released 1965
triumph thruxton was released 1964
sorry.
I do not know what book you are reading but best hit the books...I know for a fact Thruxton was released in the late 50's here's a link of a 62' I don't have time to prove a point to you but I am most assured that Velo was way before Triumph as far as the Thruxton name was...Cheers..
