New Triumph Rocket 3 TFC is now listed on the official UK website of the brand. The 2500cc engine on the motorcycle is a one-of-its-kind marvel with a three-cylinder layout and not just that, the price tag of 25,000 GBP (INR 22.74 lakh approx) is the highest possible for a product coming out of the Triumph dealerships.
The huge price tag is because of the TFC nameplate associated with the product, further limiting the production to just 750 units for the Triumph Factory Custom (TFC) model. The new engine is more than 200cc over the last model, taking the total power output up by a considerable margin.
The engine is good for 170 HP and 221 Nm, up from the last output of 150 HP and same torque figure. The motorcycle features a lighter engine and body setup, pushing down 40 kilograms from the old version’s weight.
The reduction in weight has definitely improved the handling factor for Triumph Rocket 3 TFC but still, the model is ages behind the indirect rival, Ducati Diavel. The high output and massive configuration of components make the fact sure that no motorcycle dares to enter the territory of the new model. The 221 Nm torque is totally unchallenged.
New Triumph Rocket 3 TFC comes with the most advanced electronic features of all time, counting cornering ABS, riding modes, cruise control, hill hold control, quick shifter, GoPro control system, TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity, keyless ignition, and even tire pressure monitoring system.
The front 47mm Showa USD forks are fully-adjustable while Brembo brakes make sure that the massive machine comes to halt at the rider’s will. The premium finish through carbon-fiber panels may not stay the same on the regular Rocket 3 model as the pricing is expected to drop at around 15,000 GBP (INR 13.65 lakh approx, direct conversion) for the standard model.
