Triumph Bobber to get the TFC treatment

We could be about to see a new Triumph Bobber unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan after its been given the Triumph Factory Customs makeover

THE Triumph Bobber could be about to get a limited-edition makeover this winter, as the factory looks to be releasing a TFC (Triumph Factory Custom) version at this year’s EICMA show.

The news comes after Triumph France has posted the picture above on the TFC page of their website. The page asks interested parties to sign up for further information about the new model which, despite being sat under a cover is distinctly Bobber-like! We have also seen a Bobber undergoing testing in recent months, prompting many to think that the model is about to get an update.

With no concrete information regarding the final spec of the new machine, we can only guess that this will be a higher specification version of the current Bobber Black, with added carbon fibre and blacked engine and details. The TFC version of the bobber may also get an updated suspension and braking set up, for confirmation of that we’ll have to wait until the show.

If the recently released Thruxton R TCF is anything to go by, the new Bobber may also receive different engine internals, high compression pistons, and more aggressive cam timings.

The TFC models are all limited edition run bikes, with previous models to get the same treatment being limited to 750 units.

The TFC models are sometimes used as a way of ushering in a new model – for the new Rocket 3 anyway. Could the update to the range mean we are about to see a new 2020 or 2021 Bobber joining the fold?

The page confirms that the new TFC model will be unveiled on November 5—EICMA’s opening day.
