TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOM OFFER

The new Triumph Factory Custom Offer reflects Triumph’s unparalleled impact on the custom scene, and the unique passion and expertise that lives within our design and engineering teams. This is a passion that has been demonstrated many times over with a host of unique motorcycles created within a dedicated factory design workshop. From individual custom ambassador bikes, to movie bikes and multiple racing bikes, from off-road to track- and drag-racing bikes, all built to ride, and many to race, each showcases the world class talent in design and hand crafted custom art of the Triumph factory custom team.

With the genesis of the TFC offer coming from the 2014 Triumph TFC Bobber and Scrambler, and the incredible Thruxton TFC and Rocket 3 TFC generating global press headlines and a rush for customer deposits, the launch of the third TFC model signals Triumph’s commitment to continue to create the most beautiful, exclusive and desirable motorcycles ever made, with even more TFC models to come.

 

TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOM (TFC) STORY

ULTRA-PREMIUM CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES

The new Triumph Factory Custom story represents the most beautiful, exclusive and desirable motorcycles we have ever made. Designed and crafted to exceptional levels of specification and finish, these motorbikes are ultra-premium limited editions, inspired by a passion for the worldwide custom scene, and the absolute pinnacle of their kind with astonishing levels of performance, equipment, and technology.

Advancing the way motorbikes are created has always been a major part of Triumph’s success since 1902; from the very first historic Triumph No1, to Edward Turner’s pioneering parallel twin engines, through to the hair-raising 2019 Moto2™ 765cc Triple.

This is the story of how our latest approach to designing and building custom special motorcycles – the Triumph Factory Custom concept – has become a reality.

CREATING YOUR OWN CUSTOM SPECIAL
Triumph motorcycles continue to take pride in designing, engineering, testing and hand building motorbikes that give our riders the starting point for the perfect ride, and creating one’s own custom special is an aspiration that many Triumph owners have embraced. It’s why over 80% of Street Twin riders have chosen to personalise their bike, and the latest Bonneville Speedmaster has a genuine accessories range that numbers over 130.

This ethos for creativity and personalisation has enabled a whole new generation of Triumph owners to create their own custom motorcycle while maintaining all the stunning beauty and authentic character of a performance bike. It’s this enthusiasm that we notably embraced for ourselves in 2014.

CUSTOM INSPIRATION
Inspired by these hand-crafted successes, as well as the huge growth of our own modern classics line-up and retro custom category, we have been leading a transformation in customer personalisation for years, with Triumph motorcycles featuring as the starting point for countless pro-build creations. The worldwide interest for Triumph custom specials continues to grow bigger every year, and the many examples of individual creations we have built in our own factory workshop, for our own brand fans, continue to showcase our enduring passion for the art of the motorcycle.

NEW TRIUMPH FACTORY CUSTOMS
We’ve demonstrated our passion and our customising expertise across many individual motorcycle builds over the last few years and now, in a pure celebration of motorcycling, our new TFC offer of beautiful limited edition creations demonstrates Triumph’s unique custom design capability for producing world-class motorbikes, each delivering a higher level of specification, performance, crafted design, detailing and finish than we’ve ever built before.

 

 

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 TFC Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

World-Beating Performance

At 2,500cc, the all new higher capacity, and world’s biggest, motorcycle production engine, is central to the 2019 Rocket 3 TFC’s class-defining performance, delivering 225Nm, the world’s highest torque, a staggering 74% more than its closest competitors. In addition the all-new engine delivers 182PS of peak power, 21% higher than the previous generation, making it the most powerful Triumph to date.

Adding to its unbeatable performance, the Rocket 3 TFC engine features state-of-the-art components such as lightweight titanium inlet valves which allow for even higher revving than the previous Rocket and tailor made features such as the unique Arrow silencers with carbon fibre end-caps.

 

Heart-Stopping Muscular Presence

With incredibly imposing poise and stance and beautifully distinctive details, such as new signature twin LED headlights, the new Rocket 3 TFC features unique lightweight carbon fibre bodywork, including front mud-guard, silencer end caps and exhaust heat shields, fly screen, drive shaft cover, heel guards and tank strap.

The Rocket 3 TFC’s clean uncluttered style and muscular feel is further enhanced by new intricate twenty spoke cast aluminium wheels with imposing 240mm rear tyre width and commanding internally wired flat handlebars.

Additional exquisite finish and detailing includes the one-of-a-kind premium twin ‘carbon black and matt carbon black’ paint scheme with brushed foil decals, gold accents and electroformed 3D Triumph badge, and elegantly hidden pillion footrests contributing to clean minimal rear end.

 

Category Dominating Technology

The new Rocket 3 TFC offers unparalleled class-leading technology, setting an incredibly high standard, designed to deliver the ultimate riding experience.

The latest generation full-colour 2nd generation TFT instruments add even more sophistication and a major step up in functionality over the previous Rocket. The minimal stylish design of the TFT system offers two information layout themes and a feature that allows the rider to personalise their start-up screen.

Increasing the level of rider-focused technology even further, the optimised Cornering ABS and Traction Control set-up maintains the optimum braking performance and level of traction, whatever the lean angle. Additionally, four riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-configurable) adjust the throttle map and traction control settings to suit the riding conditions or rider preference.

Taking the riding experience to a new level, the Rocket 3 TFC comes with Triumph Shift Assist and Hill Hold Control as standard. The Triumph Shift Assist allows for clutch-less up and down quick shifts improving the shifting times compared to manual gear changes, whilst the Hill Hold feature enables maximum rider control, preventing the bike rolling backwards.

For enhanced visibility, low energy consumption and great durability, the Rocket TFC features all-LED lighting, including all new full-LED twin headlight with signature shaped Daytime-Running-Light (DRL, market-specific availability), compact LED indicators, tail light and number plate light.

Electronic cruise control is also fitted as standard, reducing the rider’s fatigue on long journeys. And for additional convenience and security, the Rocket 3 TFC features keyless ignition, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and a USB charging socket.

In addition to its standard specification, the all new Rocket 3 Triumph Factory Custom’s advanced TFT instruments have been designed to deliver even more capability when enabled by an accessory Bluetooth connectivity module. When fitted, the full TFT connectivity system delivers the world’s first motorcycle integrated ‘GoPro’ control system, Triumph’s ‘turn-by-turn’ navigation system powered by Google as well as music and phone operation.

 

Category Defining Equipment Specification

Significant weight savings across the entire motorcycle make the 2019 Rocket 3 TFC 14% lighter than its predecessor with 44.5kg saving, for even more astounding handling and riding experience. This saving is delivered by an all-new unique aluminium frame which uses the engine as a stressed member for mass optimisation, all new aluminium single sided swinging arm, engine component refinements, carbon fibre bodywork and lightweight braking components.

In addition to the weight saving, the Rocket 3 TFC also has a category leading level of equipment, with top specification Brembo Stylema® calipers, high specification adjustable 47mm upside down Showa cartridge forks and fully adjustable Showa monoshock with piggy back reservoir.

The premium specification continues with a Brembo radial master cylinder and MCS span and ratio adjustable brake lever plus matching clutch lever.

 

Beautiful Engineering Features

The new 2019 Rocket 3 TFC is equipped with an incredible array of custom designed details including real leather interchangeable ‘twin or single’ seat set-up as standard, plus an infill pad supplied to work with the single seat set-up. Adding to this come a distinctive single sided swingarm and innovative sculpted 3-header exhaust run.
