Triumph is an undeniable juggernaut in the motorcycle industry, and it’s hard to argue with their spectacular line of bikes fit for every purpose. From racing, enduro, and casual riding, all the way to becoming a fan-favorite for modding and customization, their iconic Thruxton model has seen its fair share of beautiful recreations, and now, it’s receiving an official update with the 2019 Thruxton TFC edition.
It’s true that the infamous bike has finally undergone the Triumph Factory Custom-treatment, sporting a slew of aesthetic and performance upgrades that will make any traditional Thruxton owner jealous. A new special edition paint job, alongside numerous suspension and brake tweaks, help to make the bike far more responsive, while a lightened chassis and 10-horsepower increase over the Thruxton R provide a noticeable bump in power. This means that the TFC will sit right around 107 horsepower overall, alongside a generous 85 ft-lbs of torque and a new exhaust system that gives the engine a burly note. A newly added carbon fiber body, fairing, and mudguard lower the weight of the bike by almost 11 pounds, alongside an upgraded and fully adjustable Ohlins suspension system, race spec Metzeler RR tires, and a TFC handover pack with a personalized book and letter of authentication. Only 750 of these special Thruxton TFC editions will ever be made and only 200 of those will be headed to the American market, making them one of the most intriguing recent releases from the iconic motorcycle brand.
