New Triumph Rocket Factory Custom

Triumph teased this official photo of the upcoming Rocket, TFC version, into our inbox a short while ago, along with a short message:

Concept Rocket TFC

  • The concept for the next TFC model is an all-new Rocket TFC, the ultimate motorcycle
  • The world’s largest production motorcycle engine transformed
  • Full details and launch to follow on May 1, 2019

The current Rocket III’s propellant charge is a 2294cc longitudinal Triple rated by Triumph at 148 horsepower and a massive 163 foot-pounds at just 2750 rpm; the new one will no doubt be a step forward. Overall the new bike looks shorter, sportier and just plain sexier than the outgoing behemoth, for which Triumph claims a wet weight of 736 pounds. We imagine the shaft drive will remain, inside the new single-sided swingarm.

Really it looks like the reengineered Rocket wants to go mano-a-mano with the Ducati Diavel or maybe Harley’s new FXDR? Bring on the comparo!
