    With only 750 available worldwide, talk to your dealer now to own this new motorcycle legend.

    Price from $29,000.00


    THE ULTIMATE MOTORCYCLE
    A genuine motorcycle legend, the original Triumph Rocket was a pure original equipped with the world’s largest production motorbike engine and more muscle and presence than all others. In 2019 the next chapter in this incredible story begins with an all-new Rocket, which once again tears up the rule book and sets a whole new benchmark for torque, performance, capability and style.

    A British engineering masterpiece - the Rocket 3 TFC is designed to be nothing short of the ultimate motorcycle. Totally exclusive and with world-beating performance, the Rocket 3 TFC’s all-new 2500cc triple engine delivers the world’s highest torque for a production motorbike and, being a genuine TFC, spectacularly re-defines its own class with heart-stopping muscular presence, category-dominating technology, beautiful features and the highest level of premium specification equipment.

    With only 750 available worldwide, talk to your dealer now to own this new motorcycle legend.

    World Beating Performance

    At 2500cc, the world’s biggest motorcycle production engine is central to the Rocket 3 TFC’s new class-defining performance, delivering more than 221Nm (the world’s highest torque) and more than 170PS of power, this is the most powerful Triumph to date. Adding to its unbeatable performance, the Rocket 3 TFC is also equipped with tailor-made, unique Arrow silencers with carbon fibre end-caps, for an unbelievable deep growling soundtrack.

    Totally Exclusive

    With a worldwide production run of only 750, the Rocket 3 TFC is a never-to-be-repeated ultra-limited edition. One of the most desirable Triumphs ever made, each is individually numbered and supplied with a premium unique TFC handover pack


    HEART STOPPING Muscular Presence

    The already-imposing poise and stance of the Rocket 3 TFC is enhanced by the premium carbon fibre bodywork, clean flowing lines, signature twin LED headlights, distinctive hydroformed three-header exhaust run, intricate cast aluminium wheels and incredible silhouette that together create the absolute pinnacle in motorcycle presence and style.


    CATEGORY-DEFINING Specification


    Over 40kg lighter than its predecessor and equipped with state-of-the-art premium branded brakes and suspension, including class-leading Brembo Stylema brakes and fully adjustable Showa monoshock with piggy-back reservoir – all designed to deliver an astounding handling and riding experience.




    Following are the fast facts about this beautiful power-hungry cruiser.

    1. Only 750 will be produced worldwide, with only 225 Triumph Rocket 3 TFCs arriving in Noth America.


    2. Each Rocket 3 TFC will arrive with a numbered edition plaque on the instrument mount, and unique badging that features gold detailing. Each TFC will also arrive with:

    • Personalized custom build book
    • Leather TFC-branded rucksack
    • Rocket 3 TFC indoor bike cover
    3. The 2019 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC will be powered by an all-new 2500cc triple that produces more than 163 ft/lbs of torque, which the Hinckley-based brand says is 70 percent more torque than its nearest competitors. The engine produces 168 horsepower, more than 13 percent higher than the previous generation. This makes the TFC the most powerful Triumph to date.

    4.Triumph didn’t go crazy into details, but says that the Rocket 3 TFC engine features “state-of-the-art” components such as lightweight titanium inlet valves, which allow for even higher revving than the previous Rocket, and tailor-made features including the unique Arrow silencers with beautiful carbon fiber end-caps.

    5. The 2019 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC is 15-percent lighter than its predecessor for a weight savings of 88 pounds (dry weight of the Rocket Roadster is 734 pounds). The following contribute to the weight savings:

    • All-new aluminum frame which uses the engine as a stressed member for mass optimization
    • All-new aluminum single-sided swinging arm
    • Engine component refinements
    • Carbon fiber bodywork
    • Lightweight braking components

    6. In regards to suspension and brakes, the Triumph Rocket TSA uses Brembo Stylema calipers, an adjustable 47mm Showa fork and a fully adjustable Showa monoshock with a piggy-back reservoir. The premium specification continues with a Brembo radial master cylinder and MCS span, ratio-adjustable brake lever, and matching clutch lever.

    7. The 2019 Triumph Rocket TFC arrives with the following electronic and rider aides:

    • Cornering ABS
    • Traction Control
    • Four riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-Configurable)
    • Triumph Shift Assist for clutch-less up and down shifts
    • Hill Hold Control to prevent the bike from rolling backwards when stopped on an incline

    8. The Rocket 3 TFCs rolls on twenty-spoke cast aluminum wheels with a 240mm rear tire.

    9. The Rocket 3 TFC was designed for bold appeal, and features a premium twin carbon black and matte carbon black paint scheme with brushed foil decals, gold accents, electroformed 3D Triumph badge and hidden pillion footrests contributing to a clean, minimal rear end.

    10. Besides the signature twin LED headlights with Daytime Running Lights (DRL), other aesthetic highlights include the following carbon-fiber parts: front mud-guard, silencer end caps, exhaust heat shields, fly screen, drive shaft cover, heel guards and tank strap all add to an unmatched level of finish, compact LED indicators, taillight and number plate light.

    11. The Triumph Rocket 3 TFC features full-color, second-generation TFT instruments that are more sophisticated than the previous generation. The minimal stylish design of the TFT system offers two information layout themes and a feature that allows the rider to personalize their start-up screen.

    12. Cruise control is standard, as is keyless ignition, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and a USB charging socket.

    I notice on this forum there is considerable upgrades at considerable cost happening. Looking at this beast made for a talented rider obviously I don’t see a lot of upgrades needed, being a grasshopper only I ask the question is the bike really overpriced? Lot of top notch gear on that thang. This bike is kinda like the usmc only the few and the brave are gonna have this bike. 750 (young) men with big kahoonas
