2020 Triumph Bobber TFC

I am generally not a real fan of Bobber’s, but Triumph’s Bobber that they released in 2017 was actually a pretty good ride.  There were a few short-comings that are pretty much inescapable with a Bobber design, but overall it was a fun ride and light years ahead of most cruiser based designs that follow the Bobber theme.

For 2020, Triumph have given their Bobber the Triumph Factory Custom treatment that is more than just window dressing.  Only 750 will be produced worldwide and will no doubt sell out fast.

The TFC Bobber scores 10 more ponies and 4 Nm more twist than the regular Bobber models. Engine inertia is reduced by 39 per cent, while the RPM limit is raised by 500 rpm. Power is up by 13 per cent over the standard Bobber.

While the final specification might be subject to some minor late changes, Triumph state that the TFC will be approximately five-kilograms lighter than the Bobber models.  The final weight, rake, trail and seat height specifications for the new Bobber TFC, and the difference vs. the standard Triumph Bobber and Bobber Black, will be released following homologation in January 2020.
