World-Beating Performance

At 2,500cc, the all new higher capacity, and world’s biggest, motorcycle production engine, is central to the 2019 Rocket 3 TFC’s class-defining performance, delivering 225Nm, the world’s highest torque, a staggering 74% more than its closest competitors. In addition the all-new engine delivers 182PS of peak power, 21% higher than the previous generation, making it the most powerful Triumph to date.

Adding to its unbeatable performance, 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 such as the unique Arrow silencers with carbon fibre end-caps.

Heart-Stopping Muscular Presence
With incredibly imposing poise and stance and beautifully distinctive details, such as new signature twin LED headlights, the new Rocket 3 TFC features unique lightweight carbon fibre bodywork, including front mud-guard, silencer end caps and exhaust heat shields, fly screen, drive shaft cover, heel guards and tank strap.

The Rocket 3 TFC’s clean uncluttered style and muscular feel is further enhanced by new intricate twenty spoke cast aluminium wheels with imposing 240mm rear tyre width and commanding internally wired flat handlebars.

Additional exquisite finish and detailing includes the one-of-a-kind premium twin ‘carbon black and matt carbon black’ paint scheme with brushed foil decals, gold accents and electroformed 3D Triumph badge, and elegantly hidden pillion footrests contributing to clean minimal rear end.

Category Dominating Technology
The new Rocket 3 TFC offers unparalleled class-leading technology, setting an incredibly high standard, designed to deliver the ultimate riding experience.

The latest generation full-colour 2nd generation TFT instruments add even more sophistication and a major step up in functionality over the previous Rocket. The minimal stylish design of the TFT system offers two information layout themes and a feature that allows the rider to personalise their start-up screen.

Increasing the level of rider-focused technology even further, the optimised Cornering ABS and Traction Control set-up maintains the optimum braking performance and level of traction, whatever the lean angle. Additionally, four riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-configurable) adjust the throttle map and traction control settings to suit the riding conditions
or rider preference.

Taking the riding experience to a new level, the Rocket 3 TFC comes with Triumph Shift Assist and Hill Hold Control as standard. The Triumph Shift Assist allows for clutch-less up and down quick shifts improving the shifting times compared to manual gear changes, whilst the Hill Hold feature enables maximum rider control, preventing the bike rolling backwards.

For enhanced visibility, low energy consumption and great durability, the Rocket TFC features all-LED lighting, including all new full-LED twin headlight with signature shaped Daytime-Running-Light (DRL, market-specific availability), compact LED indicators, tail light and number plate light.

Electronic cruise control is also fitted as standard, reducing the rider’s fatigue on long journeys. And for additional convenience and security, the Rocket 3 TFC features keyless ignition, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and a USB charging socket.

In addition to its standard specification, the all new Rocket 3 Triumph Factory Custom’s advanced TFT instruments have been designed to deliver even more capability when enabled by an accessory Bluetooth connectivity module. When fitted, the full TFT connectivity system delivers the world’s first motorcycle integrated ‘GoPro’ control system, Triumph’s ‘turn-by-turn’ navigation system powered by Google as well as music and phone operation.

Category Defining Equipment Specification

Significant weight savings across the entire motorcycle make the 2019 Rocket 3 TFC 14% lighter than its predecessor with 44.5kg saving, for even more astounding handling and riding experience. This saving is delivered by an all-new unique aluminium frame which uses the engine as a stressed member for mass optimisation, all new aluminium single sided swinging arm, engine component refinements, carbon fibre bodywork and lightweight braking components.

In addition to the weight saving, the Rocket 3 TFC also has a category leading level of equipment, with top specification Brembo Stylema® calipers, high specification adjustable 47mm upside down Showa cartridge forks and fully adjustable Showa monoshock with piggy back reservoir.

The premium specification continues with a Brembo radial master cylinder and MCS span and ratio adjustable brake lever plus matching clutch lever.

Beautiful Engineering Features
The new 2019 Rocket 3 TFC is equipped with an incredible array of custom designed details including real leather interchangeable ‘twin or single’ seat set-up as standard, plus an infill pad supplied to work with the single seat set-up. Adding to this come a distinctive single sided swingarm and innovative sculpted 3-header exhaust run.

FINAL THRUXTON TFC SPECIFICATION

The new Thruxton TFC homologation has now been finalised and confirmed. The new definitive sports classic delivers an incredible 109PS of peak power, 115Nm of peak torque and a spectacular 5kg weight saving over the Thruxton R

TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOM OFFER

With the genesis of the TFC offer coming from the 2014 Triumph TFC Bobber and TFC Scrambler, the launch of the second TFC model available to riders worldwide signals the continuity of a truly special offer with the most beautiful, exclusive and desirable Triumphs ever made, with more TFC models to come.

    While I am not the target demographic (1 bike only daily rider), I wish I was! The level of functional eye candy on the TFC Thruxton at the local shop is insane so this one is likely to be better in person too, and the TFC R3 would be hella more comfortable. Triumphs in my experience are not under-engineered, so it wouldn’t surprise me that much if the 240mm rear tire we all malign counters some of the top-heavy tip-in tendency this bike is likely to exhibit (based on the 1st gen R3 I rode). Not to mention one would need more contact patch with those torque numbers 😉 I may never see a TFC R3 in real life, but am more than idly curious to see what’s made of this platform in the future…

    Finger Licking good.

    29k is a steal compared to what Harley is producing and selling. Harley buyers are paying 40K for their CVO. So I dont see a problem here

  4. Anonymous says:

    I’d like to give this machine a ride! Looks fun.

  5. Grover says:

    Just because a bike is sold out doesn’t mean that it’s a good bike. It just means that collectors will buy anything that is perceived to have investment value or make them popular at the local watering hole. Most motorcyclists that I know would like to first ride the thing to find out if it’s suitable for them before they lay down their 30k. Fat, ugly and expensive seems to be popular these days, just witness the “celebrities” that occupy the entertainment news.

  6. Mick says:

    I am always surprised to see people react positively to bikes like this one. To me it looks just shy of Boss Hoss levels of wrong.

    I read somewhere recently that Triumph is starting to flounder a bit. To me this represents a shark jump. Here they are blowing long and hard about a bike they aren’t really making or selling.

  7. DR007 says:

    Sold out to…..collectors. All will become garage queens. Triumph which I love has tapped into the market of the affluent who will buy anything that is low volume with a high price. It helps the bottom line and gets their bikes on the front cover. The supercar market has been doing this for the last 5 years and it works to create more income to produce more product. I still hate the rear fender design. LOL.

  8. Steve says:

    Just my opinion, but I don’t care for this styling trend where they hang the license plate/brake light/turn signals off the swing arm! And how are you supposed carry anything on the back? Not just this bike but others, too. Forget about some soft saddle bags.

    • Dave says:

      I believe this is a regulatory driven compromise. DOT defines where the license plate and lights must be located so in order to achieve the cropped-tail look, there must either be a boom coming off the back of the bike, or a swing-arm mount like this.

  9. Harry says:

    Motor Cycle Daily’s first ride analysis of Triumphs new exclusive Rocket 3 TFC
    crickets.

  10. Reginald Van Blunt says:

    The real problem here for Triumph, is the standard Rocket 3 still looks like an abandoned kitchen sink full of turds. Gonna be a tough sell after such a TFC looker.

    • Jeremy says:

      Or maybe they’ll be easy to sell… Along with a few thousand dollars worth of farkles from the TFC catalogue.

      • Reginald Van Blunt says:

        Away off yonder, me thinks the distant sound of bangors & scones, bangors & scones, is about to replace the potato, potato, potato so familiar to the unwashed and short. Nay … I jest ?

    jiminy crickets, amazing amount of verbiage necessary to describe a product…LOL, along with adjectives and adverbs that imply no other scoot will ever compare…more LOL.

    of the three cruisers and two sportbikes i owned in 19+ yrs and 225k miles of riding, my favorite was the 2009 ninja 650, all black, tyvm 😉

      Indeed.

          Just because the bike is “capable” doesn’t mean so is the rider. But you knew that.

  12. ApriliaRST says:

    Sold out. So much for the predictions and negative comments by MD posters. lol

    Once again, listen carefully: Some people are willing to buy motorcycles different from those you happen to like and at prices higher than you prefer. These people are known as motorcycle *enthusiasts.* It takes more than just owning a motorcycle and typing out negative comments to be an enthusiast.

    • Anonymous says:

      “These people are known as motorcycle *enthusiasts.*”

      But are they motorcycling (riding) enthusiasts? I don’t understand why some people are happy with bikes that are only good in a straight line.

      • Dave says:

        Jus because you don’t understand doesn’t mean it doesn’t make sense. People like different things, just like food and music.

        I never understood why people would drive trucks when they didn’t use them for work and hauling, but they sure are enthusiastic about their trucks..

      • ApriliaRST says:

        > I don’t understand why some people are happy with bikes that are only good in a straight line.

        Well, some people don’t understand why you don’t ride solely off road. Different people like different things. That said, what makes you think this bike is for straight roads only? I mean, did you say that to be literal, or are you saying some bikes are more oriented toward curves? If the latter, please enlighten us to *exactly* where the rest of the motorcycling world should draw the line, Bwanna.

    • mickey says:

      There is no definitive definition of what makes a motorcycle an enthusiast. Chances are if you are a canyon runner you think an enthusiast is one who posseses certain skills at running fast in the curves on weekends. If you are a tourer and enthusiast may be one who travels great distances regularly to far away places. If you are a commuter your idea of an enthusiast is one who rides daily in all kinds of weather putting in over 300 days a year and 25,000 miles a year. Ifyou are a collecter your idea of an enthusiast is one who cares for the history of the sport, and has a collection of valuable motorcycles even though you only ride a hundred mile loop on sunny weekends. If you are an ADV rider, your idea of an enthusiast is one willing to take off cross country and ride all the fire roads and dirt roads available as you go.

      Not all enthusiasts fit into your definition of what an enthusiast might actually be.

          Please explain the difference, and give us your definition of a motorcycling enthusiast.

          • Anonymous says:

            It is really simple (maybe you are too). A motorcycle is the machine we ride. Motorcycling is the riding we do. If somebody collects bikes but doesn’t ride they are a motorcycle enthusiast but not a motorcycling enthusiast. This bike is designed to appeal to poseurs, who are more focused on the bike than the riding. Which type of enthusiast are they?

          • mickey says:

            It is really simple (maybe you are too).

            Oh how clever you are.

            So no one that buys one of these could possibly be a motorcycling enthusiast? Is that what you are saying?

            I say if they buy it and ride it, they are both a motorcycle enthusiast and a motorcycling enthusiast.

    • Ralph W. says:

      We’re all motorcycle enthusiasts here. I don’t know why Mr Aprilia thinks he is above everybody else. Some of us are more interested in riding than posing and the weight of the big Triumph is a real handicap when riding in an ‘enthusiastic’ (aggressive) manner. There is plenty of reason to not like this bike. It doesn’t mean we are not motorcycle enthusiasts just because we don’t want the same bikes as him.

  13. I would like to hear some news on the real production run instead of something that is far beyond my grasp.

  14. pistoldave says:

    When the original Rocket was introduced I was underwhelmed to say the least, but this beast has my attention. I think Triumph has nailed it and then some. Wonder what the regular production models sure to follow this version will look like and what will the pricing be? If they can keep most of the performance, 90% of the looks, and shave the price down to the 12-16k range, hmmmmm…….should I just keep dreaming?

  15. RyYYZ says:

    And yet, neither I nor anyone else, it seems, have seen a good picture of the left side of this engine. On the original rocket it looked like a tractor engine. Hopefully they’ve managed to do something to make it a little less agricultural looking.

  16. Bob S. says:

    When some is good, more is better, and too much is just right, Triumph steps up to the plate and knocks the ball out of the park. If I was 50 years younger, I’d be all over that!

  17. Wendy says:

    Again, I really don’t care.

    • Nick says:

      Pardon me for asking, but why bother to comment when no-one asked for your opinion? If you have nothing constructive to say, positive or negative, save us the trouble of reading it!

      • todd says:

        There’s a box down at the bottom of the page that says “leave a comment”. So, yes, she was asked for hers – which is more viable than yours, just commenting on her opinion.

      • Wendy says:

        I don’t care because it is a fugly, rich person’s plaything that is a crapton heavy and ridiculous. Triumph builds bikes I care about, the Thruxton, the Speed Triple and the Speed Twin for example. The Rocket is merely a jockstrap pad for someone who doesn’t know what a decent bike is looking like. For example I have ridden and enjoyed the hell out of a Diavel. The RT I ride daily is equally heavy, but is designed for something more than impressing 10 year olds of all ages.

        • Grover says:

          I like to hear all perspectives as it makes this website way more interesting than just hearing the comments of a bunch of shills. I can read the ad copy if all I want is prepackaged thoughts on how great their product is.

        • Anonymous says:

          Well stated Wendy. And humorously so! 🙂

        • Nick says:

          So why didn’t you say this the first time around, instead of the vacuous ‘I don’t care’ post? Obviously you do care. Your opinion is your own, of course, but I wouldn’t ride such a bike either, much less buy one.

          Todd’s contribution adds nothing to the debate and nor does that of Anonymous either. When it says submit comment at the bottom, a considered contribution is anticipated.

          Well said, Wendy.

  18. SausageCreature says:

    I have a previous gen R3 (100 pounds heavier) and it can be a bear in certain situations, like moving it around in the garage. And be sure to mind any inclines when you park. Otherwise it’s quite manageable.

  19. Auphliam says:

    Haven’t seen the Rocket, but the local shop had one of the TFC Thruxtons on the showroom floor last week. To call it absolutely freakin gorgeous is a gross understatement. If I had $25K to spend, I’d own it right now.

  20. Anonymous says:

    Triumph certainly know how to make good looking bikes. But it is interesting to take note of how they use lighting, or the lack of it in this case, to make a bike look at its most alluring. On a previous page a couple of people complained about the look of the radiator on the CB1000R. Here they have cleverly blacked it out so it isn’t so prominent. The Rocket 3 has an enormous radiator. It has to because, in motorcycle terms, it has an enormous engine. In normal lighting this bike would probably look a little less attractive. Radiators, like wheels, are an essential part of a modern motorcycle. Get used to them and stop complaining.

  21. Tank says:

    Triumph vs Harley = Triumph won!

  22. todd says:

    I’m not in the market for a bike like this but I see this happen a lot. The 225 bikes were sold before they were ever offered for sale. Unless you’re an employee of the company or some person the PR personnel want to please, how would anyone be able to buy one of these? I think there have been some other special bikes (Ducati?) that were sold out before anyone knew they were going to be made!

    • Random says:

      I don’t think this was a premium Ferrari like sale (where you are invited to buy if you’re already an owner of another model), but a reservation list sale (you call them expressing your interest and putting a down payment). I remember the H2R or the RC213V were announced as such, as I think was this one – not that I have the money to know about the actual process.

    • Bubba Blue says:

      225 is just the first run. THere’ll be more in other configurations down the line. Triumph didn’t put all that design $$ into just 225 units.

    • Tom R says:

      Its like what Jay Leno said many years ago during Doritos commercials: They’ll make more.

  23. Moto-Kafe says:

    I owned a 2014 Street Triple Trump…….and I was blown away by the quality of the craftsmanship, parts, finish, and bits & pieces. Triumph is producing some beautiful machines. Now, if only there was a dealership within 150 miles of me……???

    Very nice. Anything well done with style and performance will sell. Just wish I could handle 640 pounds plus of motorcycle.

  29. Skybullet says:

    Styling, not performance, bragging rights and posing are the selling points here. 225 will be the first shipment commanding list price +. The next load will be much cheaper.

  30. southbound says:

    I want to see this square off with a new Yamaha V-Max. That would be a story to tell.(I’m partial to the Triumph, though).

  31. gpokluda says:

    A masterpiece indeed. Bravo, Triumph.

  32. arbuz says:

    More powerfull than a standard car.
    Has cruise control.
    Smallish gas tank with the range of 250km (156 miles).

    Weights similar to Honda Magna (slightly more).

    We are living in great times for muscle bikes (again 🙂 )
