2500cc R3 ?
      #676934 - 02/06/19 05:27 PM

Why not ?!


'Spy' photo looks a little TOO staged, eh?


I had an '08 R3 for more than 5yrs. What a hoot.

The new Rocket is a reality. Triumph has confirmed it is 2500ccs. The initial run will be 750 Triumph Factory Customs individually numbered with premium components similar to the Thruxton. I imagine the standard units will become available after that. Pricey.

That TFC thing seems fun. The Thruxton TFC is from $23,500 when the standard Thruxton is from $14,000 !!
For me, they would need to put a lot more than a friggin' limited edition plate on there to justify that difference.

that new Rocket looks better than any of the previous versions. if they keep the regular line with those looks, it'll be a contender

The fuel tank alone is 100% improvement over the old one. Iím not sure about the Diavel-ish rear end though.

I always thought the left side of the R3 was it's biggest fault. Looks like they agreed. Much better.

I agree. Especially when some remove the left hand exhaust leaving that big hole under the swingarm where the crossover pipe usually goes.

Curious to see what this custom offering will morph into.

Looks pretty hot.
My only problem with the Rocket (probably including this one) is its weight, which demands a bit of pre-planning (at least the older one did) in the twisties.
