After releasing the Thruxton TFC last week, Triumph’s ‘Factory Custom’ division has revealed an all-new Rocket TFC ‘concept’-based on a completely different platform. However, the Rocket was discontinued two years back and there’s no new model in sight for atleast a few more months. So this particular TFC variant a ‘upgraded’ near-production prototypeof the one that coming up!
Triumph Thruxton TFC
Only 750 units of the Thruxton TFC will be available- each numbered and badged. It gets reasonable increase in power and performance- making this a thorough job worth checking out.
Most of motorcycle’s bodywork- including fairing, mudguard, seat cowl and even the silencer cap, are made of carbon fiber. This has helped the bike shed a few pounds, and weighs just 198 kg dry.
Triumph has tweaked Thruxton’s 120T engine to produce 105bhp (+9.8 bhp) and 84.8lbft. Other upgrade include Öhlins NIX30 front forks, Brembo 4-piston M4.34 radial monobloc calipers and Metzeler Racetec RR tyres.

Triumph Rocket TFC
Triumph is calling this a concept but it looks anything but! Its not always that a ‘factory custom’ model precedes its standard variant, but they probably needed to hype-up the TFC division.
Safe to say that they have got everyone’s attention now!
The Rocket TFC employs the same all-black treatments as the Thruxton, which should be a staple across the Factory-range. A new 2500cc inline triple engine sits on its revamped chassis, producing 180+ bhp and 170ftlb torque. Design is a modern take on the old Power cruiser- with sporty single-sided swingarm and alloys.
We are definitely waiting for one heck of a motorcycle!
