Motorcycle fans always have a Triumph on their lists of favorite bikes, and for good reason. The Triumph is a legend, and is perhaps best known for having the world’s largest and most powerful production engine. Triumph is continuing that legacy with the Rocket 3, but only 750 people will be able to add this bike to their collection. In Triumph’s own words, this bike is “a never-to-be-repeated ultra limited edition.”
Following in its predecessor’s footsteps, the Triumph Rocket 3 will be built around a beast of an engine, a 2500cc powerhouse that delivers 163 ft-lbs of torque and 168 horsepower. The engine’s roar will travel through a tailor-made Arrow muffler with carbon fiber end caps, giving the Rocket 3 a deep growl. It’s not just the end caps that are going to receive the carbon fiber treatment. The material is featured throughout the build.
As you look for that carbon fibre, you’ll also take in the hydroformed three-header exhaust run, as well as the cast aluminum wheels. You’ll probably also notice the premium Brembo Stylema brakes and the fully adjustable Showa monoshock with piggyback reservoir. Up front, you’ll see the twin headlights. As for the saddle, you can choose for a single rider version, or a two-seater.
The Rocket 3 has the power to back up its name, but if you’re wanting to get one for yourself, scrape your spare change together—you’ll need USD$29,000—and get down to your dealer before this limited edition is gone forever.
