In the 2022 model year, fans of the Rocket 3R / 3GT and Thruxton RS models will be spoilt for choice: TRIUMPH will exclusively bring the special models 221 Special Edition of the Rocket 3 R and GT models and Ton-Up Special Edition next year. Both special series combine an exclusive paint design and a very special appearance, perfectly matching the character of the respective basic models.
Special Model #1: Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT 221 Special Edition
One thing is certain: With its currently largest engine in motorcycle construction with over 220 Nm of torque at 2.5 litres, the TRIUMPH Rocket 3 sets the benchmark for muscle bikes and rightly forms "a class of its own". But not only the sheer power captivates everyone who turns a round with the XXL triple – at least as impressive is the very well balanced balance and best everyday suitability of the Rocket. If you still miss an exclusive outfit for the bike with all these advantages of the biggest TRIUMPH, you should soon go to the dealer of the traditional British brand, because soon there will be the special models of the 221 Special Edition with a particularly noble, elaborately designed color and paint design.
A crisp red powerhouse: The Rocket 3 GT 221 Special Edition
Strong performance, strong design: this is how the 221 Special Edition scores - "Red Hopper" paint on tank and front mudguard - Tank inserts in 221 look - Tank graphic with the impressive performance data of the Rocket: power, torque, engine size, bore and stroke - Mudguard mounts, headlight housing, flyscreen, side cover, rear fairing and radiator covers in Sapphire Black - Characteristic details: double headlights, exhaust with three tailpipes, single-arm swingarm and retractable pillion footpegths
Special Model #2: Thruxton RS Ton Up Special Edition
With the new special model Thruxton RS Ton Up Special Edition, TRIUMPH recalls the early years of modern motorcycle culture on the British Isles at the end of the 1950s. At that time, the "Ton Up Boys" began to transform their "good" production motorcycles with a lot of passion by omitting unnecessary parts into sporty, powerful "Café Racers" in order to crack the magical 100mph limit ("The Ton"). The new special model of the Thruxton RS takes up many of the style elements of that time and will only be available exclusively in the 2022 model year.
The magical "100" as a reminder of the Café Racers of the 1950s: the special model Thruxton RS Ton-Up Unique Ton Up Edition paint and first-class individual details - Classically inspired fuel tank in Aegean Blue with inserts in Jet Black, framed by hand-painted silver trim lines - Pillion seat cover in Fusion White with design elements in Carnival Red including hand-painted black trim lines and a new "100 Special Edition" lettering - Fusion White front fender with new "100" lettering in Carnival Red - Side cover with new Thruxton RS Ton Up logo, headlight housing and rear fender in Jet Black - New, available as an accessory, cockpit fairing in Aegean Blue, which complements the design of the Ton Up Edition - High-quality custom details, including fork protectors in matt aluminum silver, black wheels, engine cover and rear springs
