Triumph Announce Two TFC machines

Triumph have today (22nd January 2019) announced two new 'TFC' machines. The Thruxton TFC and Rocket TFC will be available in limited edition runs of only 750 each. Triumph state that these machines will be individually numbered and will never be repeated. The launch event was at the Triumph Visitors Centre in Hinckley.

TFC stands for Triumph Factory Custom and Triumph are marketing these as uniquely crafted work to a one-off design. This isn't just an excuse to add all the accessories and charge the earth, there will be significant differences to any existing models.

The Thruxton TFC will be available from early June in the UK and UK customers will pick up their models direct from the factory. The cost will be £17,500 on the road. For other countries you will need to talk to your local dealer. The machine will feature engine upgrades (delivering more power than the Thruxton R), carbon fibre bodywork, aluminium chassis rail (total 5kg lighter than the Thruxton R), and Titanium V&H Silencers.

The factory had prototypes of the Rocket TFC Concept to show off at the launch and stated that full information about the machine would be available on the 1st May 2019. The engine will be 2,500cc and will be the most torquiest (is that a word) motorcycle engine.
