New from Triumph Factory Customs is the 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC, priced from 25,000 pounds sterling (RM135,132). Produced in a limited production run of 750 units worldwide, orders for the Rocket 3 TFC are currently being taken at Triumph dealers.

Based on the inline three-cylinder power plant from the Rokcet 3, the Rocket TFC features the largest engine capacity and torque of any production motorcycle in the world. The triple mill displaces 2,500 cc and produces more than 170 PS of power – a 13% increase from previous – and 221 Nm of torque, which we dare say, in Rolls-Royce parlance, is adequate.

Triumph claims the Rocket 3 TFC is over 40 kg lighter than the now discontinued Rocket 3, which weighed in at 362 kg in road trim. This is achieved by the use of copious amounts of carbon-fibre, including the unique Arrow exhaust with carbon-fibre end caps and heat shields.

Braking is upgraded substantially with the use of Brembo Stylema brake callipers, radial-mounted, with span and ratio adjustable Brembo MCS brake lever. Lightweight aluminium alloy 20-spoke wheels are used to reduce weight further, with the rear wheel mounting a 240-section rear tyre.

Inside the cockpit if a full-colour angle-adjustable TFT-LCD screen which, with the installation of the optional Bluetooth module, allows for phone and playlist management, turn-by-turn navigation with Google Maps and GoPro camera control from the handlebar pod. Riding aids include cornering ABS, traction control and four riding modes.
