Triumph Rocket TFC

This is such a good looking motorcycle from the first few pics released. Rare, fast, and expensive.

I think it's awesome they've now met Euro 4 compliancy with the Rocket III, and they've actually put it back into production (albeit limited to 750).
If I had the money, I'd get one to cherish, the engineering and sheer raw power of the engine are something else. Wouldn't be my daily ride, but I had the luxury of sitting on one a few years back and twisting the throttle, felt like a kid again.

No prices yet.

There is no way that they redesigned and tooled up to only make 750. It would be astronomically priced. (It may be anyway) While the initial release looks to be the 750 unit special editions, I bet you lunch that a normal production unit follows.

Either way, the bike has sexy lines for sure.

I visited my local Triumph dealer today and spoke with the sales guy who sold me my Bobber B. We got talking about the all new Rocket and he said that he had just that morning received an email from Triumph (UK) and let me read it.

The email for the most part related to other models that are being sent over for a launch event that have planned. There was only two lines relating to the Rocket... in short to say that they confirm only 750 bikes for global sale, with only 125 bikes of that number being for the U.K. market. It also stated that they will be releasing more information on the 1st of May.

I asked if he had any idea on the price and I was blown away to be told that it will cost between £25-£27,000!!! He further added that two of their customers had already put down £1000 deposits.

I knew it would be expensive but thatís mad money. He agreed and said that itís becuase they will be so rare and that people will want to be a part of this launch of limited additions. It sounded like he knew that there would be more made down the line so I asked... he laughed and said he would be amazed if they didnít make more after the initial 750.

So there you go folks. I have to say the price rules the bike out for me... I have a limit as to what Iím prepared to spend on a single bike and that is some way over Iím afraid!

That is a lot of money, I think I paid £11000 back in 2004 for mine, which I still have, the new Thruxton TFC is available mid summer for only £17500.
The new rocket is rumoured to be only 180hp, bit disappointing should have been 200+.

That doesn't surprise me top end bikes are expensive! Just look at the cost of Harley's CVO range, over here were we pay the dollar price in pounds most of those bikes are 25K+

If the Rocket III is aimed at Ducati's X-Diaval and launched at a similar price of around 18K then an extra 7K for a fully tricked out TFC Rocket is no big shake, just look how much people spend on here modding their bobbers!

Price is of no concern for me, as I would be to afraid to ride it, so....doesn't matter in the end!

Hi have to say this is not my type of but BUT I still want it...

Looks like Triumph has done a cracking job on the design. I would love to see this engine put into a retro cruiser.

Cheerio,

Roy
