RARE. BEAUTIFUL. SPECIAL.

2019 Triumph Thruxton TFC:

The first of the TFC lineup will be the new definitive sports classic, the Thruxton TFC. It is ultra-rare and offers more power, a category-leading specification, the highest-ever level of capability, premium finish and custom detailing. Each of this limited run will be one of a kind and will never be repeated.

A long-established iconic name in motorcycling, the Thruxton is the first of our motorcycles to be re-created as a Triumph Factory Custom.  As well as all the focused sporty attitude of the legendary café racer, this incredible TFC model celebrates the best of British engineering, detailing and finish with this ultra-rare never-to-be-repeated version that delivers more on every dimension.

 

Exclusive, ultra-premium limited editions

With the launch of the all-new exclusive Triumph Factory Custom offer for 2019, Triumph delivers a landmark moment for British custom design, with an exclusive limited edition line-up of
ultra-premium motorcycles.

Every TFC motorcycle will be built to embody the absolute pinnacle in custom Triumph
design, with a unique level of enhanced performance, technology, engineering, specification
and exquisite finish.

The new line-up starts with the beautiful, more powerful, lighter and even higher specification Thruxton TFC, and a hint of what’s to come next with the stunning concept Rocket TFC.

 

NEW TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOM OFFER

The launch of the Triumph Factory Custom Offer reflects Triumph’s unparalleled impact on the custom scene, which springs from a unique passion and expertise that lives within Triumph. This is a passion that has been demonstrated many times over with a host of unique motorcycles created within a dedicated factory design workshop. From individual custom ambassador bikes, to movie bikes and multiple racing bikes, from off road to track and drag-racing bikes, all built to ride, and many to race, each showcases the world class talent in design and hand crafted custom art of the Triumph factory custom team.

With the genesis of the TFC offer coming from the 2014 Triumph TFC Bobber and TFC Scrambler, the launch of the very first TFC model available to riders worldwide signals the beginning of a new truly special offer with the most beautiful, exclusive and desirable Triumphs ever made, with more TFC models to come.

Each of the numbered ultra-premium custom limited editions to come will feature a higher specification of technology and equipment, better performance and a crafted custom design
with class-leading detailing and finish.

 

The Story

The new Triumph Factory Custom story represents the most beautiful, exclusive and desirable motorcycles ever made.  Designed and crafted to the highest standards of specification and finish, these motorcycles are ultra-premium limited editions, inspired by a passion for the global custom scene and the absolute pinnacle of their kind with astonishing levels of performance, equipment and technology.

Advancing the way motorcycles are created has always been a major part of Triumph’s success dating back to 1902; from the very first historic Triumph No. 1, to Edward Turner’s revolutionary parallel twin engines, through to today’s hair-raising 2019 Moto2™ 765cc Triple powerplant.

This is the story of how our latest approach to designing and building custom special motorcycles – the Triumph Factory Custom concept – became a reality.

THRUXTON TFC
THE NEW DEFINITIVE SPORTS CLASSIC
Rare. Beautiful. Special.

With even more style, power and performance the incredible new Thruxton TFC raises the bar to become the definitive sports classic and the new pinnacle in the legendary Thruxton line-up.

 

Rare, beautiful and truly special, this incredible first production TFC model celebrates the best of British engineering, detailing and finish with this ultra-rare never-to-be-repeated version that delivers more in every dimension.

 

Ultra-Limited Edition
With only 750 ever being sold worldwide, the Thruxton TFC will be Triumph’s most exclusive and desirable Modern Classic. Featuring premium TFC badging and instrument faces with gold detailing, and a beautiful individually-numbered plaque on the top yoke, each one will be completely unique and never to be repeated.

 

Every Thruxton TFC owner will also receive a special tailor-made TFC handover pack unique to their bike, featuring a numbered letter signed by Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor, a personalised custom build book, and a beautiful Thruxton TFC bike cover.

 

 

Premium Custom Finish and Detailing
Visually striking, the new Thruxton TFC features unique beautifully engineered lightweight carbon fibre bodywork, including a stunning one-piece carbon cockpit fairing, front mudguard, seat cowl, heel guards and silencer end caps. Additional exquisite detailing includes billet machined aluminium top yoke with TFC branding, premium brushed nickel mirror centres, tinted screen, beautiful real leather seat with stitched detailing, and billet machined aluminium oil filler cap.

 

All of this comes on top of a whole host of beautiful blacked out features, including premium black anodised multi-spoked wheels, black Öhlins RSU springs with black decals, black engine covers and a black tail tidy. To perfectly complement the black theme and real carbon fibre, the Thruxton TFC is available in one signature paint scheme – a distinctive Carbon Black, with brushed tank knee pad detailing, and hand painted gold lining.  And that premium gold detailing is applied across the whole motorcycle, from the gold lining on the fairing, to the gold detailing
in the badging and instrument faces, unique key with gold detailing, and even a stylish
custom gold chain.

 

The Thruxton TFC also retains all of the distinctive core Thruxton features, such as the brushed flip-top Monza fuel cap, twin throttle bodies with brushed intake finisher, Daytona R foot pegs
and clear anodised aluminium swing arm.

 

 

More Power and torque from a Significant Engine Upgrade
The new Thruxton TFC achieves an incredible 10PS more power than the standard
Thruxton R. This is delivered by significant engine upgrades including a whole host of lighter weight engine components, high compression pistons, and revised ports and cam profile. Along with the higher power, the Thruxton TFC also delivers an incredible high torque punch low down and across the entire rev range, peaking at 115Nm.

 

There is also a premium one-of-a-kind exhaust system just for the Thruxton TFC, with Vance & Hines titanium silencers and carbon fibre end caps, with a unique laser etched co-branded logo.

 

 

Category Leading Specification
Significant weight savings across the entire motorcycle make the Thruxton TFC five kilograms lighter than the Thruxton R for an even more dynamic and agile ride – delivered by engine component refinements, carbon fibre bodywork, aluminium engine cradle rails, rear mudguard removal, and a lighter weight battery.

 

In addition to the weight saving, the Thruxton TFC also has a category leading higher level of specification and equipment, with fully adjustable Öhlins upside down NIX30 front forks and fully adjustable Öhlins piggy back reservoir rear shocks with billet machined aluminium adjusters.

 

There are also high specification Brembo 4-piston M4.34 radial monobloc calipers and twin floating Brembo front discs, delivering excellent stopping power, and unique race specification Metzeler Racetec RR super sticky tyres. The premium specification continues with a Brembo radial master cylinder and MCS span and ratio adjustable brake lever plus matching clutch lever.

 

 

Highest Ever Level of Capability
Increasing the level of rider-focused technology are three upgraded riding modes unique to the  Thruxton TFC (Rain, Road and Sport), which now adjust throttle map, ABS and traction control settings to better suit the riding conditions or rider preference. This is enabled via the latest generation ride by wire, which delivers enhanced rideability, safety and control.

 

For enhanced visibility, lower energy consumption and greater durability, the Thruxton TFC features all-LED lighting, including 7 inch headlight with signature profile daytime running light (market specific availability), compact LED indicators, tail light and rear light.

 

ABS and traction control are also fitted for maximum safety and control, both implemented with minimal visual impact – compact, responsive and unobtrusive. Optimised to reduce lever effort for the rider, the torque-assist clutch makes the bike even more comfortable over long journeys and in stop-start riding, while the USB charging socket improves convenience. An engine immobiliser is also fitted as standard on the Thruxton TFC, with a transponder incorporated into the new high-value gold badged key.
