Features and Benefits

The limited-edition 221 Special Editions have the Rocket’s trademark muscular design, fantastic handling, and smooth touring abilities, as well as a new paint scheme that highlights the Rocket’s class-leading performance figures.

The new 2022 Triumph Rocket 3 R 221 Special Edition Cruisers, so-called for its industry-leading 221 Newton meters (163 LB-FT) of peak torque, are striking, high-end, and highly sought after.

Magnificent Style with Attractive Paint Scheme

Color-wise, the 221 Edition Rockets stand out because of a new paint job that strongly contrasts the Red Hopper tank and the front mudguard and the Sapphire Black mudguard brackets, headlamp bowls, side panels, fly screen, rear bodywork, and radiator cowls. The paint job is made even better by the graphics on the knee pads and the tank top, which boast the Rocket’s impressive specifications: 221Nm of torque (163 LB-FT of power), a 2458cc engine, 164HP of power, an 85.9mm stroke, and a 110.2mm bore.

Special editions of the Rocket include not only the distinctive 221 Edition paint scheme but also the imposing and muscular posture, the distinctive dual headlamps, and the wonderfully sculpted three-header exhaust run that have made the standard Rocket a new contemporary motorcycle icon. The secret folding pillion footrest, for instance, which, when folded, effortlessly merge into the sleek lines of the Rocket’s design, is just one illustration of the high quality of Triumph’s attention to detail.

Unparalleled Performance

The Rocket 3 R and GT have the most significant production bike engine in the world, and their low-to-midrange power is unrivaled anywhere else. The new 221 Special Editions are named for their outstanding performance, which sets a new standard in their class.

The 2,458cc triple engine produces an incredible 164HP at 6,000rpm and the world’s most fantastic peak torque of 164 LB-FT at 4,000rpm. You can ride the Rocket 3 R or GT all day in any gear and never get bored with the experience.

The hydro-formed three-header exhaust line of the engine was specifically engineered to produce the Rocket’s tremendously rich triple-engine roar, which is an integral part of the vehicle’s beautiful aesthetic.

A high-performance six-speed helical-cut gearbox and torque-assist hydraulic clutch are also standard on the Rocket 3 R and GT, making for remarkably smooth running and a plush ride.

Phenomenal handling

The 2022 Triumph Rocket 3 R 221 Special Edition Cruisers offers excellent riding quality and many standard features of the newest generation Rocket. It has a 47mm upside-down Showa cartridge front fork, including adjustable compression and rebound damping, and an all-new fully adjustable Showa mono-shock rear suspension unit with a piggyback reservoir.

This limited edition Rocket 3 has top-of-the-line Bemba Stylema four-piston radial monobloc front brakes featuring dual 320mm floating discs, further ensuring its exceptional handling. These modern calipers are small and light without sacrificing cooling performance.

A Bemba M4.32 four-piston monobloc caliper and 300mm disc, typically located at the front end of a motorbike, are mounted to the Rocket 3’s rear end, further underlining the special equipment of this bike.

The innovative design of the Rocket’s single-sided cast aluminum swing arm, mass-optimized aluminum frame, hidden folding pillion pegs, and internally wired roadster-style handlebars on the R model or touring handlebars on the GT model all contribute to the bike’s exceptional handling.

The wheels have high-performance Avon Cobra Chrome tires and are lightweight thanks to their aluminum construction and intricate 20-spoke design. These are custom-made for the Rocket 3, so they grip well and last a long time.

The ergonomics have been meticulously planned to provide maximum ease of use despite the immense power at your disposal. The seat’s contours have been carefully designed to cushion the rider. The foot controls may be adjusted to one of two vertical positions (on the R model) or three horizontal positions (on the GT model). The R model has a seat height of 30 inches, while the GT model’s seat height is 32.5 inches; both models allow the rider to switch from a dual to a single-seat configuration using an optional infill pad.

The 2022 Triumph Rocket 3 R 221 Special Edition Cruiser’s massive fuel tanks (4.7 gallons each) make them ideal for cross-country road trips.

Ride-Enhancing Technology

An all-new 2022 Triumph Rocket 3 R 221 Special Edition Cruiser includes anti-lock brakes (ABS) and traction control (TC) with cornering improvements. These are managed by a high-tech IMU that monitors the bike’s acceleration, roll, pitch, and yaw to determine the lean angle and fine-tune the brakes and traction.

The instruments include angle-adjustable, full-color TFTs with two modifiable information themes. The My Triumph connection system software is pre-loaded, activated, and configured for usage, with the Bluetooth module added as an aftermarket component. It displays on the TFT screen and enables GoPro engagement, turn-by-turn navigation, and phone and audio control through the switch cubes.

The throttle response and traction control settings may be customized by the rider or switched between four predefined riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport, and Rider-configurable). The lighted switch cubes make switching settings a breeze even on the go.

The Rocket 3 R and GT features all-LED lighting, including dual LED headlights, indicators, wonderfully sculpted tail light, and number plate light, for low energy usage, durability, and superb visibility on the road. Triumph’s distinctively designed LED Daytime Running Lights are integrated into the headlights (where legal) to illuminate the rider for oncoming traffic better.

As standard, all Rocket 221 Editions are equipped with hill hold control, keyless ignition, cruise control, and keyless steering lock, plus an under-seat USB charging plug. Plus, on the GT variant, heated grips are also supplied as standard

50+ Genuine Triumph Accessories

You may improve the Rocket’s use, safety, and good looks with various official Triumph accessories, as you do with any of their bikes. All components are developed concurrently with the bike and must pass the same stringent quality and durability tests.

Tracking and alarm systems, along with a comfortable seat and a sports screen, are just some of the available extras for your Triumph.

A variety of baggage, including cast aluminum, retractable, lockable pannier mounting system, is also available to enhance the touring capabilities of the bike.

There is an unlimited mileage guarantee for the first two years on the 2022 Triumph Rocket 3 R 221 Special Edition Cruisers, as well as all authentic accessories.
