The Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) division has revealed an exclusive version of the 2019 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC, powered by a larger 2,500-cc, three-cylinder engine with an array of custom details and premium touches and limited to a worldwide production run of only 750 units.
The Custom Rocket 3 features premium carbon-fibre bodywork, signature twin-LED headlights, a hydro-formed three-header exhaust pipes, 20-spokecast-aluminium-wheels with a 240-mm rear tyre, a 47-mm upside down fork and a rear monoshock (both from Showa), an interchangeable twin-seat set-up, and also a single sided swing-arm with a redesigned shaft drive. Each of these exotic motorcycles also gets a unique plaque.
At the heart is a new engine that produces more than 170 PS and 221 Nm, much more than its predecessor, making it the most powerful triumph thus far. It gets bespoke Arrow silencers with carbon-fibre ends. Braking duties are taken care of by top-of-the-line Brembo Stylema units at both ends.
The rocket 3 TFC is 40 kilograms lighter than the older rocket III, thanks to its all-new aluminium frame and titanium engine valves. electronic aids on this new triumph include cornering ABS, cruise control, riding modes and also an accessory Bluetooth module offering full TFT connectivity, Triumph’s turn-by-turn navigation system, and integrated GoPro control system.
Now that the rocket 3 TFC has been revealed, it’s likely that triumph will launch the standard version of the 2019 triumph rocket 3 in the near future with the new engine and chassis. Exciting times ahead.
