Limited-edition Triumph Thruxton RS, Street Twin, and Rocket 3 revealed

This past year, Triumph has released limited-edition iterations of multiple models in its line-up. Some of them include the Tiger 900 Bond edition and the Bonneville Gold Line Editions. Now, the British manufacturer has announced the arrival of three more limited-edition models of the Thruxton RS, Street Twin, and the Rocket 3.

221 Edition Triumph Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT

The Rocket 3 sports the largest engine on a production motorcycle. This 2,500cc, inline-triple, behemoth of an engine produces peak output figures of 167hp and 221Nm of torque — the latter, a number that Triumph is quite proud of. 

The 221 Edition Triumph Rocket 3, as its name suggests, celebrates its peak torque figure. While it sports no mechanical updates, it comes in a cool ‘Red Hopper’ color scheme, features 221 branding on the tank pads, and includes other cosmetic tweaks, including blacked-out fender brackets, windscreen, and side panels.

The limited-edition R and GT models wear $23,900 and $24,600 price tags, respectively.

Thruxton RS Ton Up Edition

The Thruxton RS Ton Up Edition, too, comes with no mechanical or performance updates. It continues to be powered by the same 1,200cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin, and hardware components like the Ohlins suspension and Brembo brakes are identical as well. 

However, this limited-edition model sports a cosmetic overhaul that pays homage to the cafe racer culture of the 1950s and 1960s. RideApart reports that the Ton Up Edition, in its special Aegean Blue color scheme, features a black cutout at the tank, a silver pinstripe and a white tail cowl, and a front mudguard with ‘100 Special Edition’ graphics. 

At $17,300, the Thruxton RS Ton Up costs $800 more than the standard model. 

Street Twin EC1 Special Edition

Triumph has mentioned in its press release that the Street Twin EC1 takes its inspiration from “the vibrant custom-classic motorcycle culture of London’s East End – particularly the historic streets of EC1, the iconic London postcode.” 

Changes on this edition are minimal with a new Matt Aluminium Silver and Matt Silver Ice paint scheme, along with EC1, graphics across the tank, and side panels. 

The unique color scheme comes at an additional $750 over the standard Street Twin’s $10,350 price. 

All three limited-edition models will go on sale from January 2022.
