New Look Street Twin And Rocket 3 Arriving In India In 2022


These special edition Triumphs will only be on sale in 2022

Triumph has followed up the unveiling of the Gold Line Bonnevilles with a few special edition models of its highly popular Street Twin and the Rocket 3 torque monster. The British marque also unveiled the Thruxton RS ‘Ton Up’ Edition, which sadly isn’t India-bound. Here’s what’s new about the new special edition Triumphs:

What’s New?
Both the Street Twin EC1 Special Edition and the Rocket 3 221 Special Edition models are special runs of their respective bikes with funky looks that highlights each bike’s distinct flavour. While the production of the bikes will not be restricted to a set number of units, they will only be available in 2022.

Street Twin EC1 Edition
Inspired by the streets of East London, the Street Twin EC1 Edition brings out the classy spirit of the sporty small Bonnie. It gets a brand new dual-tone Matte Aluminium Silver/Matte Silver Ice shade with the ‘EC1’ badging on the tank. The side panels have a ‘LTD Edition’ sticker denoting that it isn’t just an ordinary shade of the Street Twin, and Triumph will also have a unique Matt Silver Ice fly screen as part of the accessories catalogue for the bike.

Rocket 3 221 Special Edition
As you would’ve guessed it, the ‘221’ in the name denotes the torques that the beast produces: 221Nm. What’s new here is the special Red Hopper shade for the tank and the short front mudguard. The tank recesses have a cutout ‘221’ graphic. Lastly, it is perhaps one of the only few motorcycles in the world to have its engine specifications stickered on the tank. Yep, Triumph has a large spec sheet giving out the following information: engine displacement, max torque, max power, bore, and stroke. Finally, the Rocket 3 221 Special Edition has blacked out front mudguard mounts, headlight bowls, fly screen, side panels, tailpiece and radiator shrouds.

What’s Unchanged?
Besides the aesthetic updates, there’s no change to the foundation or the powertrain of the bikes. The Street Twin’s trusty 900cc HT parallel-twin motor puts out 65PS and 80Nm as usual. The dual-cradle frame is sprung by a 41mm KYB open-cartridge fork and preload-adjustable twin shocks.

On the beast, the 2458cc triple continues to produce a gut-wrenching 221Nm and 167PS. Fully-adjustable Showa suspension, Brembo monobloc calipers at both ends of the bike and specially-developed Avon tyres ply their trade here as well. The unique bits of Rocket 3 GT and the Rocket 3 R continue to define the bikes, with the 221 livery present on both trims.

ZigSays
The Street Twin EC1 might work well for East Londoners but it just feels a bit too simple for the Indian buyer. Understated looks are rarely appreciated here. Hence, we think that there will be many Indian buyers who will be enamoured by the Rocket 3 221s. The brute looks more menacing in its new red/black colour. Yes, it will be a shade dearer than its standard versions but it should be worth the premium.
