Triumph Rocket 3 TFC - A different triple

Recommended Posts

That’s beautifully done.  I like this power cruiser style motif way more than the older ones.  Click through and study some of the detailed photos...  impressive design & workmanship.   

Only 750 globally, at $29k each.  It honestly looks like it’s worth that, but a bit too rich for my blood.

Kind of like a Diavel or Vmax on steroids. Badass looking for  sure.

It's got 3 times our displacement and a one gallon larger fuel capacity. Wonder how far it goes on a tank.

I rode a Rocket 3 trike conversion at Americade one year and it shook the filings out of my teeth.

Almost 3X the displacement and 3X the torque of the CP3 motor… 2,458cc Triple w/ 168hp and 163 lb-ft torque!!

I remember back in the early 2000's when Triumph came out with the Rocket as a VMax killer. Well, it wasn't close but at least it was a try. Kinda like the V-Rod. Then Yamaha came out with the Gen 2 VMax in 2009. I never took to the new design of the VMax. I had 3 Gen 1's but never a Gen 2. The Rocket is a muscular looking bike, I like it. At this point in my life, at half the cost of my lake house, I'll never own 1 but who says ya can't look? Becoming the seasoned citizen that I am I sold the 150-170 MPH bike, ZX11 for the nice light-weight FJ09. Still has a killer power to weight ratio to ham-fist it up to 100-110 MPH and that's good enough for me now.

Besides, no matter how much stonk my engine has I'm still an old, slow guy. Takes more than horsepower to fix that.

I have to admit, I’m really liking this bike.  The detail work looks stunning, and the overall design is very appealing to me...  

Maybe my ‘H2 SX SE & Monkey fund’ needs to be re-evaluated?
