The internet buzzed back in early December with rumors that Triumph was building a bigger, badder Rocket 3 after a prototype was rolled across the stage at Triumph’s international dealer meeting a month earlier. Turns out those rumors were true as Triumph Motorcycles UK just introduced the limited-edition Triumph Rocket 3 TFC (Triumph Factory Custom) and it’s a beast!

At the heart of the beast is an all-new 2500cc Triple said to be the “World’s Biggest Production Motorcycle Engine.” Accordingly, Triumph claims this colossal liquid-cooled Triple puts out the “World’s Highest Torque for a Production Motorcycle” at a whopping 221Nm (163 ft-lb). Add 170PS (167 hp) to its gaudy output numbers and you’ve got an arm-stretcher you could rip stumps out of the ground with. Streaking down its right side is a hydroformed three-header exhaust that feeds into Arrow silencers topped with carbon fiber end caps, and I don’t know about you, but I’d love to hear this beast roar when you’re on the gas. I’m hoping this baby has traction control because Triumph also stated that the new Rocket 3 TFC is 40 kg (88 lbs.) lighter than the old Rocket III, so things could get squirrelly really fast, even with that 240mm backside.

The Rocket 3 TFC truly looks much more like a rocket thanks to revamped styling. Triumph chopped and tapered the tail section, switched to a single-sided swingarm, mounted on drag bars and cut-out the tank. There are carbon fiber bits sprinkled about, and the cast-aluminum wheels are wrapped in Cobra Chrome tires. It comes with interchangeable seats, one solo and another with a small pillion pad. The digital tach is sleek and modern, and at a glance it looks like it comes with various engine maps. The British marque did retain its signature twin LED headlights on the Rocket 3 TFC, though. Triumph didn’t skimp on performance parts, either, as the big muscle bike comes with braided brake lines and class-leading Brembo Stylema brakes and a fully-adjustable Showa monoshock with a piggy-back reservoir.

Only 750 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC will be available worldwide at a price tag of £25,000 OTR ($32,710 US). Each one is numbered and comes with an exclusive “TFC handover pack” of goodies.

Who said the displacement wars were over! Triumph’s latest reveal states otherwise.
