In the ever-thrilling world of motorcycle customization, where passion meets precision, Triumph Motorcycles stands as a beacon of innovation. With the recent unveiling of their 2024 model of the Triumph Rocket, enthusiasts worldwide are buzzing with anticipation, eager to experience the next evolution of two-wheeled exhilaration. Yet, amidst the fervor surrounding Triumph’s latest masterpiece, there exists a tale of ingenuity and audacity that deserves its moment in the spotlight – the story of the Triumph Rocket 3R transformed by the visionary artisans at Roké Motors.

Masterpiece in the making

Picture this: a sleek and formidable machine, born from the marriage of cutting-edge technology and boundless creativity. This is the Triumph Rocket 3R, a powerhouse on two wheels, poised to conquer the open road with unrivaled ferocity. But for Roke Motors, the Rocket 3R was more than just a bike – it was a canvas begging to be transformed into a masterpiece.

“Why did you build this bike?” When asked, Roke Motors’ Chief engineer Bas Kentrop response is as bold as it is unapologetic: “No particular reason, just to prove it can be done.” It’s a sentiment that resonates with anyone who has ever dared to dream beyond the confines of convention, fuelled by a relentless desire to push the boundaries of what’s possible. And so, armed with nothing but his imagination and a thirst for adventure, Bas embarked on a journey to unleash the full potential (and more!) of the Triumph Rocket 3R.

Ideal canvas

The choice of the 2023 Triumph Rocket 3R as the base for their project was a stroke of genius. With its muscular silhouette and commanding presence, the Rocket 3R was the epitome of raw power, just waiting to be harnessed or perhaps even better, unleashed. “Because the bike standard is already a beast,” explains Roke Motors, “I want to turn it into a real monster.” And thus, the stage was set for a transformation of epic proportions.

Drawing inspiration from their past builds, particularly the 2017 Thruxton R compressor project, Roke Motors set about realizing their vision with unwavering determination. Their goal was clear: to enhance the Rocket 3R’s already formidable capabilities without sacrificing an ounce of its sleek and stealthy aesthetic. It was a delicate dance between form and function, requiring equal parts technical expertise and artistic finesse.

No boundaries

With no budget constraints to hinder their creativity, Roke Motors spared no expense in their quest for perfection. Low compression JE pistons, modified cams, and a TTS compressor kit formed the backbone of the mechanical upgrades, while fuel injectors with a higher flow rate and a modified fuel pressure regulator ensured optimal performance under any circumstance. Meanwhile, the integration of a boost-sensitive voltage clamp and custom-made software added a layer of sophistication to the bike’s already formidable arsenal.


But perhaps the greatest challenge lay not in the technical aspects of the build, but in preserving the Rocket 3R’s trademark smoothness and reliability. It was a challenge that Roke Motors embraced with gusto, pouring countless hours into fine-tuning every aspect of their creation to ensure that it ran as seamlessly as the original – if not more so. And in the end, their efforts paid off handsomely, with the Triumph Rocket 3R emerging from its transformation as a paragon of performance and poise.

Dream on wheels

As Roke Motors proudly proclaims, “the result” is what they cherish the most. From crafting bespoke software to overcoming unforeseen technical challenges, every obstacle overcome was a testament to their unwavering dedication to their craft. And the result speaks volumes – a Triumph Rocket 3R that not only looks the part but rides like a dream.

In the midst of Triumph’s latest Rocket offering, Roke Motors offers a tantalizing glimpse into a parallel universe where customization reigns supreme. Their Triumph Rocket 3R with a compressor stands as a testament to the enduring allure of motorcycle customization and the indomitable spirit of innovation. It is a machine born not out of necessity, but out of sheer passion and a desire to push the envelope. And in doing so, Roke Motors has created a true masterpiece – a beastly beauty that captivates the imagination and inspires awe in all who behold it.

Attention please!

From its meticulously crafted components to its thunderous roar on the open road, every aspect of the Roke Motors Triumph Rocket 3R demands attention and admiration. All elements work in perfect harmony to unleash an unrivalled surge of power, propelling the Rocket 3R into the stratosphere of performance motorcycles. And with fuel injectors boasting a higher flow rate and a modified fuel pressure regulator, every twist of the throttle delivers an adrenaline-fueled rush unlike any other.

But it’s not just the brute force of 360 Nm in combination with 307 Hp that sets the Roke Motors Triumph Rocket 3R apart – it’s the meticulous attention to detail that elevates it to a league of its own. The integration of a boost-sensitive voltage clamp and custom-made software ensures that the bike’s performance remains consistent and reliable, regardless of the conditions. From city streets to winding mountain roads, the Rocket 3R handles with the grace and precision of a finely tuned instrument, effortlessly carving through corners and devouring straightaways with equal aplomb.

We had the extreme pleasure of riding the Rocket on winding country roads. The handling is superb and the combination with all that raw power available at the flick of your right wrist turned the ride in to a thrill. 

Next level

Yet, for all its power and prowess, perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the Roke Motors Triumph Rocket 3R is its ability to retain the essence of the original while pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. From a distance, it may appear as just another Rocket 3R – sleek, stylish, and unmistakably Triumph. But beneath the surface lies a symphony of innovation and engineering excellence, waiting to be unleashed with the twist of a throttle.
