Triumph Thrills US With TFC Models
We reported yesterday on the Rocket TFC teaser Triumph released, well now we’re here to show you a whole lot more.
The motorcycle company showed off the Thruxton TFC in all its glory and released more images of the Rocket TFC and a few more details. These are the first two models of what is to become a full line of super limited-edition premium Triumph Factory Custom motorcycles.
The bikes will be individually numbered and uniquely customized as well as receive modest performance enhancements.
The Thruxton TFC
Triumph’s Thruxton TFC we reported on before, but now you can really take in all the bike’s details. The company will build only 750 models. Of that 750, 200 will come to the U.S. and 20 will go to Canada.
The bike receives a 10 hp bump in power for the 1,200cc engine. It’s about 11 pounds lighter, too. The retuned engine can make 85 lb-ft of torque at 4,850 rpm.
Additional upgrades to the model include fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, Brembo brakes with adjustable brake levers, Metzeler Racetec RR tires, Vance & Hines titanium silencers with carbon fiber end caps, carbon fiber bodywork, billet-machined top yoke with a special TFC plaque.
The bike also comes with authentication papers, a personalized booklet, and other personalized items included in what Triumph is calling a “handover pack.”
