Triumph Motorcycles introduced the world to the 2021 Rocket 3 R Black and Rocket 3 GT Triple Black motorcycles. The British bike manufacturer will produce limited-edition models of just 1,000 units of each model worldwide. Each bike will come with its unique VIN number and certificate of authenticity. The limited-edition Triumph Rocket 3 adds a dose of opaque elements for a sharper look. The Rocket 3 R Black gets a matte and glossy finish along with black fuel tank decals and new black branding. The model takes on a slightly aggressive stance in the lineup. Instead, the Rocket 3 GT Triple Black gets a tricolor black paint scheme while maintaining a more comfortable riding position.
