While the enhanced aesthetic of the Bobber TFC would be enough for it to stand out from the pack, a handful of mechanical refinements result in an improved performance package as well.

The engine receives a lighter crankshaft, clutch, balance shafts, alternator, magnesium cam cover and thin-walled engine covers. Triumph claims 10 more horsepower from the refined mill compared to the stock Bobber, as well as 3 more pound-feet of torque. The rev limiter is also 500 rpm higher than stock.
