The Triumph Rocket 3 TFC. This weekend, you can see it for real. In reality, so to speak. In London. So get going.

Then get yourself down to The Bike Shed London this weekend because the British firm is taking the wrappers of its most powerful motorcycle ever – and it’s doing it in front of Joe Public.

You’ll get to get up close and personal with the 2,458cc triple that kicks out over 167bhp and makes a staggering 163ft-lb of torque (according to Triumph, that’s 70% MORE than its nearest competitor). The Thruxton TFC and Rocket 3 TFC will be at the show, which starts on May 24, alongside the custom Speed Twin designed by the Bike Shed’s Anthony ‘Dutch’ van Someren.

It’s a beast. A big beast. Pretty beast. Beast is the central theme of this presentation…

The Bike Shed Show will also signal the start of Triumph’s inaugural Bobber Build Off challenge.


The competition, which will see 13 Triumph dealerships from around the UK present their own custom versions of the Bonneville Bobber, will open for the public to vote on as part of the show.

Fans of the iconic modern classic will be able to vote on-line by visiting the Triumph website from the 24th May,  the three finalists will then go into a head-to-head showdown judged by a celebrity panel at the end of July.

The 13 finalists taking part are: Jack Lilley Ashford; A1 Moto; Bevan Triumph; JS Gedge; Bulldog Triumph; Triumph Glasgow; Pure Triumph Wellingborough; Triumph World Chesterfield; Triumph East London, Phillip McCallen Motorcycles, Peterborough Triumph, Laguna Ashford, Laguna Maidstone
