Triumph say that the TFC will gain 10 horsepower over the regular Thruxton R, which should push the TFC to around 106 horsepower. This is delivered by significant engine upgrades including a whole host of lighter weight engine components, high compression pistons, and revised ports and cam profile.  Peak torque creeps up to 115Nm at 4850 rpm.

There is also a premium one-of-a-kind exhaust system just for the Thruxton TFC, with Vance & Hines titanium silencers and carbon fibre end caps, with a unique laser etched co-branded logo.

To perfectly complement the black theme and real carbon fibre, the Thruxton TFC is available in one signature paint scheme – a distinctive Carbon Black, with brushed tank knee pad detailing, and hand painted gold lining. And that premium gold detailing is applied across the whole motorcycle, from the gold lining on the fairing, to the gold detailing in the badging and instrument faces, unique key with gold detailing, and even a stylish custom gold chain.

The Thruxton TFC also retains all of the distinctive core Thruxton features, such as the brushed flip-top Monza fuel cap, twin throttle bodies with brushed intake finish, Daytona R foot pegs and clear anodised aluminium swing arm.

Significant weight savings across the entire motorcycle make the Thruxton TFC five kilograms lighter than the Thruxton R for an even more dynamic and agile ride – delivered by engine component refinements, carbon fibre bodywork, aluminium engine cradle rails, rear mudguard removal, and a lighter weight battery.

In addition to the weight saving, the Thruxton TFC also has a category leading higher level of specification and equipment, with fully adjustable Öhlins upside down NIX30 front forks and fully adjustable Öhlins piggy back reservoir rear shocks with billet machined aluminium adjusters.

Increasing the level of rider-focused technology are three upgraded riding modes unique to the Thruxton TFC (Rain, Road and Sport), which now adjust throttle map, ABS and traction control settings to better suit the riding conditions or rider preference. This is enabled via the latest generation ride by wire, which delivers enhanced rideability, safety and control.

For enhanced visibility, lower energy consumption and greater durability, the Thruxton TFC features all-LED lighting, including 7 inch headlight with signature profile daytime running light (market specific availability), compact LED indicators, tail light and rear light.

ABS and traction control are also fitted for maximum safety and control, both implemented with minimal visual impact – compact, responsive and unobtrusive. Optimised to reduce lever effort for the rider, the torque-assist clutch makes the bike even more comfortable over long journeys and in stop-start riding, while the USB charging socket improves convenience. An engine immobiliser is also fitted as standard on the Thruxton TFC, with a transponder incorporated into the new gold badged key.
