and never repeated.
Every Rocket TFC owner will also receive a special tailor-made TFC handover pack dedicated to their bike, featuring a numbered letter signed by Triumph’s CEO Nick Bloor, a personalized custom build book, leather TFC-branded rucksack and a beautiful Rocket 3 TFC indoor bike cover.
At 2,500cc, the all-new higher capacity 2019 Rocket TFC powerplant is the world’s largest production motorcycle engine and central to its class-leading performance. This massive Triumph triple delivers more than 163 LB-FT of torque, more than any other production motorcycle, a staggering 70% more than its closest competitors. In addition the all-new engine delivers in excess of 168 peak horsepower, more than 13% higher than the previous generation, making this the most powerful Triumph to date.
Adding to its unbeatable performance, the Rocket 3 TFC engine features state-of-the-art components such as lightweight titanium inlet valves which allow for even higher revving than
the previous Rocket, and tailor-made features including the unique Arrow silencers with beautiful carbon fiber end-caps.
Heart-Stopping Muscular Presence
With an aggressive stance and beautifully distinctive details like the new signature twin LED headlights, the Triumph Rocket 3 TFC is striking from every angle. Unique lightweight carbon fiber bodywork, including front mud-guard, silencer end caps, exhaust heat shields, fly screen, drive shaft cover, heel guards and tank strap all add to an unmatched level of finish.
The Rocket 3 TFC’s clean uncluttered style and muscular feel is further enhanced by new intricate twenty spoke cast aluminum wheels with imposing 240mm rear tire width and commanding internally wired flat handlebars.
Additional exquisite detailing includes the one-of-a-kind, premium twin carbon black and matte carbon black paint scheme with brushed foil decals, gold accents, electroformed 3D Triumph badge and elegantly hidden pillion footrests contributing to a clean, minimal rear end.
The new Rocket 3 TFC offers unparalleled, rider-focused technology, setting an incredibly high standard of safety and usability while delivering the ultimate riding experience.
The latest full-color second generation TFT instruments add even more sophistication and a major step up in functionality over the previous Rocket. The minimal stylish design of the TFT system offers two information layout themes and a feature that allows the rider to personalize their start-up screen.
Increasing rider safety, the Optimized Cornering ABS and Traction Control set-up maintains the optimum braking performance and level of traction, whatever the lean angle. Additionally, four riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-Configurable) adjust the throttle map and traction control settings to suit riding conditions or rider preference.
Raising usability and convenience even further, the Rocket 3 TFC comes with Triumph Shift Assist and Hill Hold Control as standard. The Triumph Shift Assist allows for clutch-less up and down shifts, shortening the times compared to manual gear changes, while the Hill Hold Control feature enables maximum rider control by preventing the bike from rolling backwards when stopped on an incline.
For enhanced visibility, low-energy consumption and great durability, the Rocket TFC features all-LED lighting, including an all-new full-LED twin headlight with signature shaped Daytime Running Light (DRL, market-specific availability), compact LED indicators, taillight and number plate light.
Electronic cruise control is also fitted as standard, reducing rider fatigue on long journeys. For additional convenience and security, the Rocket 3 TFC features keyless ignition, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and a USB charging socket.
In addition to its standard specification, an accessory Bluetooth connectivity module enables the Rocket 3 Triumph Factory Custom’s advanced TFT instruments with full connectivity to the world’s first motorcycle-integrated ‘GoPro’ control system, Triumph’s ‘turn-by-turn’ navigation system powered by Google, as well as music and phone operation.
Category-Defining Equipment Specification
Significant weight savings across the entire motorcycle make the 2019 Rocket 3 TFC over 15% lighter than its predecessor (an 88-pound weight savings), for even more astounding handling and thrilling riding experience. This savings is delivered by an all-new aluminum frame which uses the engine as a stressed member for mass optimization, an all-new aluminum single-sided swinging arm, engine component refinements, carbon fiber bodywork and lightweight braking components.
In addition to the weight savings, the Rocket 3 TFC also has a category leading level of equipment, with top specification Brembo Stylema® calipers, high quality adjustable 47mm upside down Showa cartridge forks and a fully adjustable Showa monoshock with piggy back reservoir.
The premium specification continues with a Brembo radial master cylinder and MCS span, ratio-adjustable brake lever, and matching clutch lever.
Beautiful Engineering Features
The new 2019 Rocket 3 TFC is equipped with an incredible array of custom designed details including genuine leather interchangeable twin or single seat set-up as standard, plus an infill pad supplied to work with the single seat set-up. A distinctive single-sided swingarm and innovative sculpted three-header exhaust run add to the machine’s unique look.
