TFC has shed over 40 kilos from the standard Rocket III, with an all-new unique aluminium frame, swingarm and carbon fibre bodywork.
Soon after launching the Triumph Factory Custom (TFC), British motorcycle manufacturer Triumph officially unveiled the details of its second TFC motorcycle, the Rocket III TFC. Limited to a production of 750 units worldwide, the motorcycle gets an overhauled engine and revised aesthetics.
The Rocket III TFC has a more dominating stance than its regular counterpart but retains it's signature twin-LED headlight setup. It also retains its indicators, exhaust headers, single-sided swingarm, and leather seats. However, it sports a premium carbon and matte carbon black paint scheme with brushed foil decals, gold accents and a 3D Triumph badge.
TFC has shed over 40 kilos from the standard Rocket III, with an all-new unique aluminium frame, swingarm and carbon fibre bodywork. The Rocket III TFC stands on adjustable 47mm USD Showa forks, with a fully adjustable Showa monoshock in the back. It also has lightweight braking components to further tone down the weight.
The motorcycle is powered by a 2,500CC inline-three engine which makes 170PS of maximum power and 221Nm of peak torque. This much torque is the highest for any motorcycle, surpassing its closest competitor by 70 per cent. It also makes the Rocket III TFC the most powerful Triumph to date.
Triumph has decked the limited production motorcycle with a gold-detailed badge, with an individually numbered plaque on the instrument mount. It is priced at $29,000 and bookings have begun at official Triumph dealerships. However, it remains to be seen if it makes it to Indian shores.
