With a bike so intricately detailed as this, it seems almost crass to jump straight to the performance figures, but, hey, it’s what we all want to know right? Compared to the current 1,200cc Thruxton R (itself already an uprated model), the limited edition TFC is 11 pounds lighter and 10 hp stronger. In a world where “special edition” so often means fancy paintwork and some carbon-fiber bits, it makes our petrolhead hearts sing to hear that Triumph has stuck a hot motor in the Thruxton TFC. The internals of the 1,200cc parallel twin have been through a weight loss clinic and matched to high-compression pistons, revised ports, and hot cams. Power is now a cheeky 107.5 hp; peak torque sits at 85 pound-feet—and those are pulling a lighter 437-pound bike around. To keep the higher performance usable, the electronics have had an overhaul too, with revised riding modes controlling the ABS and traction control.
