Triumph has lifted the lid on a limited edition version of the Rocket III to celebrate a decade at the top of the charts.

The 2,294cc motorbike is the world’s largest-capacity mass produced motorbike and has been for the past 10 years.

And the Triumph Rocket X will be rolled off the production line to mark the occasion with just 500 units to be built.

The commemorative model comes complete with the famed three-cylinder 2,294cc engine of the standard model.

The only changes come in terms of design and looks with the X version sporting a black and chrome colour scheme devised in partnership with 8 Ball, a custom paint specialist.

There are grind effect stripes across the bodywork and individually numbered panels on the side of the bike, which comes complete with Rocket X livery.

In total, the Rocket X’s paintwork and finishing takes almost a week to complete, per model.

The powerful limited edition model comes with an unlimited mileage, two-year factory warranty and can be kitted out with a wide range of accessories.

It will cost around £14,800 and should be available to buy in Spring 2015.
