Returning the cafÃ©Â racer to its heritage performance roots, with all the power, delivered by its 1200cc â€˜Thruxton specâ€™ engine, andÂ the handling, agility and capability to match its beautifully imposing and authentic styling. It is simply the mostÂ thrilling and full-blooded sports classic you can buy here in India.
