Triumph Thruxton TFC
English-bred Triumph Motorcycles has a new, limited edition bike on the market and everybody wants one. Or they will as soon as they see it. Matte black with gold detailing, the Thruxton TFC is the first offering from their factory custom division. It’s built on the 1200cc Bonneville engine but with engine upgrades and carbon fiber body work for a lighter curb weight, the Thruxton TFC gets 10 more horsepower producing a peak power output of 106. Laser-etched Vance & Hines titanium mufflers along with the redesigned exhaust give the bike a raw rumble, while the precision gold pinstriping and custom details, like contrast stitching on the single seat, add serious class.
Each of these modern-day, and frankly beautiful, cafe racers is unique, with individually numbered plaques. Only 750 will be made and that’s it — Triumph won’t be re-releasing these down the road no matter how nicely anyone asks. If you want one, now’s the time.
