Triumph Officially Unveils Rocket 3 TFC
– Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) range will bring premium parts, higher performance, and exclusivity
– Only 750 units of the TFC Rocket 3 will be made
– Expected to make more than 180hp of power and 230Nm of torque from, a bigger, ~2500cc 3-cylinder engine
– Will get a single-sided swingarm and a new chassis
– Will get the second-generation, full-color instrument console
Unlike a typical British custom bike, which is just an exercise in swapping and chopping parts left and right, the Rocket 3 TFC is a massive upgrade and definitely worth a second look.
For starters, the Rocket 3 TFC will get a brand new chassis. The single-sided swingarm helps flaunt the alloy wheel design. At roughly 2500cc, the engine is 200cc larger than the normal Rocket 3. The power figure is expected to stand at 180; up from 148hp while the torque is up from 221Nm to ~230Nm. Given the higher power output, better rubber and braking hardware is also sure to be part of the package, which will help keep the motorcycle from kissing the ground.
It’ll feature all that, in addition to the liberally sprinkled carbon fiber and hand-stitched leather here and there. The global launch will take place on May 1, 2019. With the production capped at just 750 units, it should make this big bike a collector’s item. Triumph is calling it a concept, but it looks very much production ready and it should carry forward most of what’s visible today over to the production avatar.
