You can put one knee to the rules, ruminate for a moment, then come back with splendor. Although … With repression, ecology, wisdom, the announced (and endlessly postponed) end of fossil fuels, wrist sprains and the cult of "politically correct", maybe the time has come for power and excess to keep a low profile…..
What a slab !!! When we observe that hypersports think only of passing the next level after 200 horsepower, that the trails emit more watts than a family car, that the roadsters compete with the sports, that the customs are familiar with the two liters of displacement , and that the 321 horsepower maxi shoot is available at the dealership with an H2R … We say to ourselves that nothing seems more appropriate than the return of a monster overwhelmed by an engine "egotism". To do this, Triumph puts the Rocket III back on track, with great emotion in perspective..
The huge English cruiser is making a very good comeback. Rather than re-investing the domain with class and opulence, he ennobles himself like a sovereign with this TFC definition. The Triumph customization department has applied its know-how so that the Rocket III appears more miraculous than ever. Its level of equipment is above the premium with a chiadée finish, carbon and aluminum parts, Arrow exhausts, number of personalized parts, a set of saddles for a single or duo ride, and a rear plate. numbered authentication doubling the machine among the 750 copies that will be manufactured.
Driven from the catalog by Euro4, the English cruiser made its comeback in mid-2019. Still powered by a very generous 3-cylinder, the Rocket III climbs in displacement to 2458 cm3 with a power revision to 182 hp – a gain of 34 units since the previous version. To assert its exclusive side, this TFC version comes out 15 more nags than the R and GT models, more "accessible" si’lon can say.
With more volume in the combustion chambers (increased bore but reduced stroke to make it a more supercharged engine), the gain in torque is minimal but will help to knock out all the competition at this level. Triumph has made the forcing on light materials in order to lower the mass of the machine. With 367 kilos ‘all full’, the old one was a hell of a beast; this new generation has lost more than 40 kilos, dropping to 290 kilos ‘dry’. A real performance! By OCCAZ, he will take the opportunity to go and tease the Xdiavel, THE European power-cruiser of the moment.
Field where abundance is assured is electronics. High-end calibrated model, the new Rocket III will be equipped with an IMU traction control, four driving modes, ABS cornering, a color TFT screen with two display themes + the customization of start screen, shifter, hill start assistant, cruise control, keyless start system, USB socket, pressure monitoring tires, Bluetooth connectivity, smartphone pairing to control music and essential functions, a navigation system powered by Google and a control module for GoPro … A list as complete as the number to write on the check.
Beautiful elements are integrated into the chassis, consisting of a new aluminum frame whose engine plays a role in rigidity. A single-sided, Brembo Stylema brake calipers, a 47mm inverted fork and huge triple trees. The identity promises to be just as strong with a violent circular double optic look adorned with a daytime LED signature, a shortened rear, a much more enhanced engine and dragster exhausts. The pneumatic fitment is commensurate with the imposing cruiser: 150 at the front and 240 at the rear. What a plumb for the tires … and what a challenge to turn.
TFC models are supplied with a small VIP pack to ensure marked customer respectability. The Rocket III ‘Triumph Factory Custom’ will come with a letter signed by Nick Bloor (the boss of the brand), a TFC branded leather backpack, a protective cover and a book on the process of creating this motorcycle outside. -standard.
All this does not seem very reasonable, and so much the better. Tired of eating steamed chicken and vegetables picked up with tweezers. We want uppercuts, fire in the arteries, and popping fillings. This Rocket III comes to skim the ring.
