TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOM (TFC) STORY

ULTRA-PREMIUM CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES

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

Advancing the way motorbikes are created has always been a major part of Triumph’s success since 1902; from the very first historic Triumph No1, to Edward Turner’s pioneering parallel twin engines, through to the hair-raising 2019 Moto2™ 765cc Triple.

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

CREATING YOUR OWN CUSTOM SPECIAL
Triumph motorcycles continue to take pride in designing, engineering, testing and hand building motorbikes that give our riders the starting point for the perfect ride, and creating one’s own custom special is an aspiration that many Triumph owners have embraced. It’s why over 80% of Street Twin riders have chosen to personalise their bike, and the latest Bonneville Speedmaster has a genuine accessories range that numbers over 130.

This ethos for creativity and personalisation has enabled a whole new generation of Triumph owners to create their own custom motorcycle while maintaining all the stunning beauty and authentic character of a performance bike. It’s this enthusiasm that we notably embraced for ourselves in 2014.

CUSTOM INSPIRATION
Inspired by these hand-crafted successes, as well as the huge growth of our own modern classics line-up and retro custom category, we have been leading a transformation in customer personalisation for years, with Triumph motorcycles featuring as the starting point for countless pro-build creations. The worldwide interest for Triumph custom specials continues to grow bigger every year, and the many examples of individual creations we have built in our own factory workshop, for our own brand fans, continue to showcase our enduring passion for the art of the motorcycle.

NEW TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOMS
We’ve demonstrated our passion and our customising expertise across many individual motorcycle builds over the last few years and now, in a pure celebration of motorcycling, our new TFC offer of beautiful limited edition creations demonstrates Triumph’s unique custom design capability for producing world-class motorbikes, each delivering a higher level of specification, performance, crafted design, detailing and finish than we’ve ever built before.

 

 

 

2020 Triumph Thruxton TFC Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

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.
