The Made in China Brixton 1200 will go up against the likes of Triumph Bonneville T120 when launched
It’s a big move from the Austrian brand, Brixton 1200, which has focused its attention on a steady supply of smaller capacity machines up to this point. But now, it’s been confirmed that there’s a retro-styled 1200cc bike in the works.
The brainchild of the Brixton Design Center in Krups, Austria – it’s fairly likely the bike will actually be produced in China. But that's not unusual. Brixton is owned by the Austrian KSR Group, which has built up a solid reputation importing bikes from Asia over the last few years. It’s also the company behind the resurgent Lambretta brand.
Information about the big Brixton is still a little sparse at this stage – with no official confirmation about when we’ll see the bike for sale. But looking at the timelines of Brixton concepts in the past, it’s not too much of a stretch to expect the bike to be ready to go for 2021.
The Brixton 1200 not only looks similar to the Triumph Bonneville T120, which is Triumph’s old school roadster but is expected to come with similar dimensions as well.
