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
