Triumph Rocket X Edition Speciale 2015

It’s been 10 years since the Rocket III landed in the motorcycling world. An extraordinary machine that no manufacturer has dared to challenge. Forget the Boss Hoss and other Rapom V8s, totally surreal machines sailing in the ocean of confidentiality. We talk about a Triumph, a brand defying the Japanese with its Daytona, Street Triple, the Germans with its Tiger and Trophy, the Americans with its Thunderbird.
And for a decade, no one has dared to raise the displacement, the unreasonable, the vertigo higher. Only the Rocket announces such a cubic capacity, with the added bonus of its favorite engine. The 3-cylinder massacres reason with its 2294 cm3 and its colossal torque of 221 Nm reached at only 2750 rpm. Horses and weight no longer have the opportunity to be important as the bike is expressed outside the norms and time.

Triumph is celebrating this decade of excess with this limited X series; the Roman numeral befits the dark side of the beast as well as this tenth anniversary. However, the party will be sober. No tinsel, fireworks or tangy colors. The Rocket X, like the Thunderbird Nightstorm, sinks completely into the dark. But make no mistake about it. There is no question of simply smearing it with black. It’s a special edition, so delicacy is in order. Hinckley called on the renowned 8-ball workshop (which previously worked on the Daytona 675 Super III) to dress this lady of steel. For example, the mudguards and the tank receive a set of graphics evoking metal as torn from its material. The Jet Black paint is then applied and the treatments continue with finesse: two days of drying, 6 layers of lacquer then two polishing phases to obtain a high level finish.

More black on the handlebars, the screen, the brake and selector pedals, the exhausts and on the rims. The latter benefit from silver edging laid by hand. The Rocket X is also adorned with a machined aluminum badge, the one mounted on the oil tank, and a single-seater hollow saddle. Jealous the Rocket ?
To authenticate its membership of a chosen clan – it will only be manufactured in 500 copies – a numbered aluminum plate is affixed on each side.
