  • Awesome job guys. Bike looks amazing. If you need a test guy I will be your huckleberry.

    Brian Jones says:
  • Is that back wheel only attached on the left side drive train

    Edward Harrison says:
  • Lovely ,Wil be the ultimate muscle cruiser.

    William Conway says:
  • Love this.
    My dad is 89 still riding on occasion.
    He raced triumphs and other bikes back in the day.
    Still owns a 650 from 1973. (About)
    Thank you for making such great machines!

    Katie says:
  • Hopefully it does not have a keyless ignition. My speed triple RS took 4 months to repair. Triumph after sales were shocking!!!

    Robert Edmond says:
  • That inline should make some fine music. I do not like most new styles, and if I could get over that ‘turn signal’ holder of a ‘fender, I might think this was a well-executed design.

    …why are you hiding the front fender? …the ‘wings’?


    Jimmy Xi says:
  • I think that it would be very thoughtful and exquisite to include in the design a little more comfort and safety for the passenger.

    Francisco Jose Sant'Anna says:
  • @Brian Jones – yes, it is called a single sided swing arm. Triumph has been using the same setup on other bikes for years namely the Speed Triple.

    Trent F. says:
  • “when triumph motorcycles launched the rocket III in 2014 ” ? I own a 2005 Triumph Rocket III. I did buy it in 2014 though.

    Rrsmith says:
  • Brilliant design, good to have tec these days, hope its lighter than the old rocket, i couldnt handle that weight, if it had a 700cc to 1500cc i’d still want one just on looks. Have you engineers considered dual wishbone front suspension like the new lighter 2019 honda Goldwing & Valkyrie FC6. Just a thought.

    John Donnellan says:
  • Nice looking machine, and I’m very appreciative to see an update of this model. My only concern is the originality of it. More specifically, why does the rear wheel fender look like it’s been borrowed from the Ducati Diavel, and not something unique to the Triumph brand? Is Triumph getting to be unique and produce their own unique designs or trying to be a follower of designs that have already been designed and produced by another brand? I really hope that it’s not the latter. That would be very disappointing for such a premium brand, IMHO. If love to be a part of the functional design process for something more this. If possible, please contact me. Would be a real honor, free of charge, too!
