2020 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC Review – You want a bike it, or not. I guess there is not much in between. 2,294 cc triple Rocket III produces a powerful torque without delay, and with a bicycle weighing nearly 800 pounds of wet, you’re going to need it. Triumph claim it uses “the largest production motorcycle engine in the world’s” to make this radical beastie. It’s a little.

It also appears in relative obscurity, because the Rocket has always struggled to find its place in the mainstream of American motorcycles. Harley, metric Cruiser, and Gold Wings/Valkyries controlling most of the segment intended Rocket III. However, they do not claim one of my favorite motorcycle ad.

Rocket sold for 15 years in the United States, and even though no slouch (146 horsepower, 161 pound-feet of torque in the Roadster trim), approaching the level of trite Hayabusa. Triumph change that with next-generation models. In fact, they changed anything.

This is the Rocket 3 new TFC, the most powerful production motorcycle ever made Triumph. If you catch our article on TFC Thruxton, you’ll recognize that bike from the preview shown on the launch of the Triumph Factory Custom line.

Gone was the Roman numerals in their name, I guess. So too the old machine. Triumph the previous achievements with topping 2,500 cc engines that are all new, generating torque of 163 foot-pounds and 167 horsepower. In addition, nearly 90 pounds of shaving the Triumph of their biggest deals. 90! Each “additional light’s” help. Back to bikes.

When Triumph tried to classify the madness that they woke up, his image shifted from cruiser to monster muscle bike/streetfighter. Hinckley continued in that direction with the Rocket 3 TFC, which looks like the Diavel United Kingdom. If competition is too tight in the market cruisers, Triumph should have fewer rivals with a new motor. Diavel, FXDR, and that’s it?

The main lamp LED double tail, abbreviated, and muscular style to make the entire package feels far more aggressive than the previous version. Fortunately, the Rocket has the hardware to support the appearance of it. Single-sided swingarm now Showa fork, and a sporty (47 mm, can be set completely) will help when you take a stride.

Bicycle technology also got a much-needed update. All the modern stuff there: traction control, ABS, sleek fashion ride, quickshifter, autoblipper, and slipper clutch. It is all managed from a new TFT, dashboard lifted from the new Scrambler Saturday.

Only 750 Rocket 3 TFC to be produced, and about $29,000 in the United States, it is not an ordinary vehicle. Expect a new version of the standard to follow, although it is likely it will not have all parts of the TFC light. I also expect the tour accompanying the variant to use the new machine. If Triumph can sell most of the performance without the price premium in the standard model, perhaps a new era for the Rocket.
