Triumph 1200 Thruxton TFC 2019


The Thruxton TFC is the first (small) production run in Triumph’s customization department. A superb machine that aims to be super-premium, an exercise in refinement for demanding amateurs, a cafe-racer brought to the splendor of its definition. Embellished with beautiful pieces and benefiting from a better weight / power ratio, it announces the opening of the haute couture department within the English manufacturer..

What a figurehead for the TFC! We couldn’t make a better entry. The “Triumph Factory Custom”, after a few demonstrative creations, launches into the production of models with high added value. Little by little, customization departments are born within the brands, in order to refine production models with high-ranking special editions. Harley-Davidson’s CVO has been around for a long time; MV-Agusta recently spawned RVS; We can feel the beginnings in Bavaria with the BMW Motorrad Spezial … Triumph unveils its offensive with its modern-classic model, the sportiest of its range.

The Thruxton R becomes more desirable and even more elegant with a number of delicately chosen elements. Projecting identity towards speed, a carbon fork crown gives the bike its full dimension. Opening the list of lightweight parts made of this material: the front mudguard, the seat backrest, the heel protectors and the muffler tips..
This is just the intro. The TFC puts its claw on the upper triple clamp, quite simply erotic with its machining in aluminum, the monogram implanted on the side and the numbered plate on the top. The tank benefits from an extra finishing effort with brushed knee guards decorated with a hand-painted gold border. To accompany its dark color, the machine sees its rims, crankcases and the springs of its Ohlins shock absorbers covered in black. Paying attention to the rear section, you will notice that the rear fender has disappeared – forcing a review of the license plate holder and the taillight – and the fitting of a new leather saddle with gold stitching.

Triumph 1200 Thruxton TFC 2019 A gold coating on a black patina is certainly one of the most classy combinations there is. Triumph uses it sparingly to underline details, such as the seat, the transmission chain, the exclusive Triumph badge, the paint trims, the special ignition key, and the fake carburetor caps..
The use is even better valued with the arrival of a 43 mm Ohlins NIX 30 inverted fork. Associated with the piggy-back type shock absorbers from the same brand, this team of fully adjustable suspensions promises the Thruxton enhanced efficiency on the road. Especially since it is fitted with tires with high grip potential, Metzeler racetec RRs. Dynamism also improves with the weight loss of 5 kilos and more power thanks to the 107 horses from the moulbif. To go under 200 kilos, engineers have installed a lighter battery and aluminum engine cradles.

Exclusivity could not be limited to everything we have just seen. Nothing like a good engine improvement to establish a nascent reputation. For the TFC version, the parallel twin of 1200 cm3 gained 10 horsepower.
A good vitamin cure was prescribed to him with high compression pistons, a new cam profile, an overhaul of the orifices, a lightened crankshaft, a magnesium cylinder head cover, new clutches, balance shafts and alternator, a crankcase thinner-walled engine and recalibrated driving modes (Road – Rain – Sport). We then find all the electronics of the Thruxton R such as LED lights, ABS, traction control, ride-by-wire, a USB port, coded immobilizer, and digital windows in the counters. The latter benefit here from a particular finish. And since the audience isn’t everything, Triumph has taken care to let its twin-cylinder sing. On the Thruxton TFC, the engine gives voice through two specific Vance & Hines silencers.

We do not immediately notice the new aluminum oil sump cap cut in the mass. We find more easily the Monza-type fuel cap, the large metal strap crossing it, the aluminum swingarm, the Daytona R toe clips and the beautiful Brembo M4.34 clamps. These are activated by an MCS master cylinder (also Brembo) with center distance and guard adjustment..

While waiting for the next Rocket III, here is the most expensive, the most striking and the most glamorous of the Triumphs. At Hinckley, we know how to cultivate desire through increasingly qualitative products. With this TFC, we sharpen the sense of the collection. 750 copies will be produced, at 22,500 euros each; about sixty should land in France.Each TFC will be provided with a numbered certificate signed by Nick Bloor (the boss of Triumph), a cover and a personalized book on the preparation of the bike.
