Triumph has new special edition bikes coming for January, 2022, including special-paint versions of the Rocket 3, the Speed Twin, and the Thruxton RS.

Starting with the Rocket 3 GT 221 and Rocket 3 R 221, these machines get a paint job that reminds everyone you’ve got 221 Nm of torque on tap. That actually works out to 163 lb-ft, but for some reason, they didn’t want to paint that on the gas tank. Anyway—this is a one-year-only deal, with price at $28,700 for the more cruiser-oriented GT model, and $27,900 for the sportier R model.

The Thruxton RS is the sport-oriented version of Triumph’s flagship Modern Classic, with improved suspension and more horsepower. This is the cafe racer you take to the track, if that’s how you roll. The Thruxton RS Ton-Up Edition has a silver, red and blue paint scheme that pays tribute to the original performance junkies who took to the streets around the UK in informal races, as well as the hard-nosed racers who broke the 100 mph lap record with Triumph at the Isle of Man TT. Like the 221-edition Rocket 3 machines, this is a one-year-only offering. Asking price is $18,550.

Triumph also celebrates the modern custom scene in London’s East End, with the Street Twin EC1 edition. This is much more affordable machine than the other special edition models, as it’s based on a less expensive bike. It still comes with a very swank finish, though, with accessory catalog to make it even more personalized. MSRP is $11,550.
