Triumph decided to launch its new custom division called Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) by introducing a very sexy and very limited edition of the Thruxton. Based on the Thruxton R, the TFC adds a flight of features that help increase the bike’s performance. Capped with a carbon fiber racer fairing, it has been fitted with lighter components including the carbon fiber mudguard and seat cowl as well as an aluminum engine rail and battery, which have allowed to attain a 22-lb weight reduction.
The limited edition model receives a tuned up version of the model’s 1200cc parallel twin mill now rated at 107 hp and 85 lb-ft of torque, a 10-horsepower and 2.4-lb-ft of torque increase. The exhaust system has been specially prepared by Vance & Hines and features a titanium silencer and carbon fiber end caps. The blacked out look is completed by a set of black anodized wheels, a black engine cover, black Öhlins shocks while stopping power is provided by a set of Brembo 4-piston calipers mounted on twin Brembo 310 mm floating discs at the front and Nissin 2-piston calliper teamed with a 220-mm disc at the back. Only 750 units of the Thruxton TFC will be produced.
