Triumph reveals 2020 Thruxton RS, Bobber TFC, and Bonneville's

2020 Triumph Thruxton RS

Triumph’s EICMA offerings for 2020 kick off with the Thruxton RS – an updated, higher-spec model based on the existing Thruxton R.

New pistons and a lighter crankshaft help it get an extra 8PS (5.9kW), up from 97PS (71.3kW) for the old model to 105PS (77.2kW) with 20% less inertial than before. The bike also now meets Euro5 emissions limits.

Chassis changes include Brembo M5 Monobloc calipers, and the bike is 6kg lighter than the ‘R’ at 197kg.

2020 Triumph Bobber TFC

The latest addition to Triumph’s TFC (Triumph Factory Custom) line is the Bobber TFC – a limited-edition, high-spec version of the Bonneville Bobber.

Only 750 will be sold worldwide, with an extra 10PS (7.35kW) and 4Nm of torque over the normal bike. Like the Thruxton RS, its engine internals are lightened, reducing inertia by a massive 39% and raising the redline by 500rpm. Peak torque is now 110Nm and power is 64kW.

Kit includes Ohlins suspension at both ends, Brembo M50 calipers and carbon bodywork with a real leather seat and a host of billet aluminium components. Triumph says its 5kg lighter than the normal Bobber at around 223kg (dry).

2020 Bud Ekins Bonnevilles

Both the Bonneville T100 and T120 will come in ‘Bud Ekins’ form in 2020 to celebrate Triumph’s connection with the legendary Hollywood stunt man. His most famous on-screen appearance was in The Great Escape where he performed the legendary bike jump, riding a Trophy TR6, as Steve McQueen’s double.

Both Bud Ekins models get two-tone paint with the Ekins logo, a Monza filler cap and bar-end mirrors and come with a certificate signed by Triumph CEO Nick Bloor and Ekins two daughters, Susan and Donna.
