  Motorcycles they say are a reflection of one’s personality. This ethos then, is exactly what drives riders to do more to their motorcycles. A sticker here and there, a different set of mirrors and lamps and a different seat maybe. The list goes on and on. The existence of this category of consumers is why motorcycle manufacturers offer a plethora of accessories and customization options on their stock motorcycles out of the box.

But if you are someone who thinks a catalogue of accessories and modifications is boring, then boy do Triumph have your back on that. This is where Triumph Factory Custom or TFC comes in. TFC can be considered as the two wheeled equivalent of the Bespoke division of Rolls Royce Motor Cars.

  The custom motorcycle market is hot right at the moment especially when it comes to the modern classic and retro motorcycle market. TFC is Triumphs means of having a slice of that big juicy pie that is the custom motorcycle market.

  TFC is served with a pitch of “create your own custom motorcycle while maintaining all the stunning beauty and authentic character of a performance motorcycle.” This translates to owners being able to customize their motorcycles to a much further extent than can be done with factory accessories and options.

  From mods like bespoke fuel tanks, and other small tweaks to a complete transformation, TFC will do it all. So, what started from Triumph challenging their employees to do custom version of their popular models has gotten to TFC versions of their flagship bikes being made and sold, in super limited numbers obviously. The TFC 1 and TFC 2 were Triumphs early efforts to make a bespoke custom version of their production motorcycles, which the TFC 1 being a bobber and TFC2 being a scrambler style.

The newest additions to the TFC family are the company’s flagship Café Racer, the Thruxton and a limited run production of the new age version of their flagship battlecruiser, the Rocket 3.

The Thruxton TFC will come with the biggest Bonneville engine, the 1200cc mill and woild be tweaked to get more output even when compared to the ‘regular’ top spec Thruxton R.

   However, the world is more interested in TFC’s second offering, the Rocket 3 TFC. It will have the biggest engine to be bolted on to a production motorcycle at 2500cc’s and would churn out a mammoth 179 Horses and a tyre-shredding 165 torques, the highest figure on any production motorcycle.

It will also feature carbon fibre bodywork and aluminium wheels, which means that the TFC will be lighter  than the new standard model. Added to that will be a number of features exclusive to the TFC models such as Arrow custom screamers with carbon fibre caps and hydroformed three header exhausts.
