    Will be test riding a Thruxton R this weekend with a view to buying one.

    I have read a number of reports on various Triumph forums about the engine stalling at low revs, changing down and blipping the throttle at low revs.

    Anyone had any direct experience of this?

    Test rode a Thruxton R today, loved it - great summer bike for posing with at the coffee shop great looks, great engine, plenty of grunt and nice handling, lovely - the engine cases and wheels might need a lot of polishing to keep them looking their best though.

    P.S. It didn't stall when blipping the throttle on down changes at low revs.
