We have seen some cool factory Triumph motorcycles in the past with special paint and other cosmetic touches. With the introduction of the new Triumph Factory Custom line, we will begin seeing motorcycles that have performance modifications, in addition to looking cool.

Leading the way is the 2020 Triumph Thruxton TFC. Let’s take a look at what makes the TFC a Triumph Factory Custom, and why it might be the ultimate café racer.

Engine mods give the 2020 Triumph Thruxton TFC considerably more power than the Thruxton R. Inside the motor you’ll find high compression pistons, a new cam profile, updated porting, and lighter components. The result is a 10-horsepower bump, though Triumph isn’t yet saying at what engine speed. The torque peak boost is a modest 2.4 ft/lbs to 85 ft/lbs at 4850 rpm (100 rpm sooner than the Thruxton R) though Triumph claims “a punch of torque both low down and across the entire rev range.” The motor also gets three TFC-specific power modes with customizable ABS and traction control.

Once the burnt fuel charge leaves the motor, they’ll go through a custom Vance & Hines exhaust system. Made exclusively for the 2020 Triumph Thruxton TFC, the mufflers are titanium with carbon-fiber endcaps. There’s also laser-etched Triumph branding on the silencers.

The 2020 Triumph Thruxton TFC is 11 pounds lighter than the standard Thruxton. Weight is reduced by going to carbon fiber bodywork, a lighter battery, aluminum engine cradle, rear fender removal, and the previously mentioned lighter motor components.

Suspension is seriously upgraded, with fully adjustable Öhlins units. An Öhlins NIX30 43mm inverted cartridge fork gets the nod. The 2020 Thruxton TFC has twin shocks to keep with café racer tradition. However, these Triumph-specific shocks are Öhlins piggyback reservoir items, with billet aluminum adjusters.

Metzeler Racetec RR tires put the ‘racer’ in ‘café racer’. This is Metzeler’s street-legal road racing tire, so it is capable of serious performance on the track and the street. They’re just begging you to go for a spin around the Isle of Man.
With enhanced performance, Triumph has gone to a high-end Brembo braking system. There is a pair of 310mm discs that are modulated by Brembo monoblock four-piston calipers. Going that one st’ep farther, the master cylinder has an axial pump for the utmost in braking precision, and the MCS lever is ratio-adjustable for customized action. A Brembo dual-piston caliper is used on the 220mm disc in the back. As with the standard Thruxton, ABS is standard.
