The 2.3-litre Triumph Rocket III has become the 2.5-litre Rocket 3 and is till the biggest torque monster of any production bike in the world.
Currently the Rocket III has the biggest capacity engine of any production motorcycle with a 2294cc triple, delivering 221Nm of torque and 109kW of power.
When the limited edition Rocket 3 TFC arrives in late November it will have 134kW of power and a mouth-watering, arm-wrenching 225Nm of torque, making it still the torque monster in the world of production motorcycles.
Triumph has released further tech specs n the bike such as its hefty 320kg of weight, but still 40kg lighter than the III.
Only 750 numbered models of each will be made worldwide and Australia gets 25.
The production version of the Rocket 3 is set to follow.
The Rocket TFC is based on the new Rocket 3 with single-sided swingarm, chunky forks, resigned cowl, new exhaust tips, beefier Brembo brakes and a more contoured rider’s seat.
Features on the TFC include special badging, twin LED headlights, three-header exhaust, leather interchangeable single and dual seat, TFT colour instruments,Bluetooth connectivity, cruise and hill control, Google-powered navigation, cornering ABS and traction control, four riding modes, shift assist and a lot of carbon fibre bodywork.
