When Triumph first launched the Rocket III back in 2004, its beefy 2294cc three-cylinder was the world’s largest production motorcycle engine. Since that time, the high-performance cruiser has become both lighter and more powerful, meaning that although the original may have lost its title, its successor is doing just fine seated atop the throne.
With the announcement of its pair of new limited edition Rocket 3’s, Triumph has confirmed that it’ll be building just 1,000 examples (each) of the Rocket 3 R Black and the Rocket 3 GT Triple Black. In the case of the former, you’ll find that its muscle-inspired finishing kit comes complemented by an all-black paint scheme with matte detailing on the fuel tank and body panels as well as some bespoke badging and a glossy black racing stripe. And when it comes to the Rocket 3 GT Triple Black, Triumph’s opted for a more refined affair, doing up the tank in a classy three-shade black colorway and fitting the bike with a host of touring accessories. Powered by the same 2,500cc triple engine, they’re both good for an incredible 165hp and 163lb-ft of torque. They’re available for $23,700 and $24,400 respectively at the link below.
