There are also unique '221' graphics on various sections of the bike to remind you of the torque figure of the new Rocket 3's 2.45-litre 3-cylinder engine which is the largest engine ever fitted to a production bike. The engine produces 164bhp which is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed manual gearbox with a slipper clutch.

The Thruxton RS Ton Up Edition celebrates the 1960s which was a period of time when the Thruxton became the first-ever motorcycle to complete a lap of the Isle of Man TT circuit at 100miles/hour (161km/h).

The fourth and final special edition bike revealed by Triumph is the Bonneville Street Twin EC1. Triumph claims that the Street Twin EC1 will remind people of the custom-classic motorcycle culture of London's East End. The bike draws its name from the EC1 Postal Code district in East Central London which incorporates the areas of Clerkenwell, Farringdon, Hatton Garden, Finsbury Estate (west), Finsbury, Moorfields Eye Hospital, St Luke's, St Bartholomew's Hospital and Bunhill Fields.

The Street Twin EC1 also sports a rather unique silver livery which consists of two different paints - Matt Aluminium Silver and Matt Silver. The dual silver paint job is offset by EC1 and special edition graphics which can be found on multiple panels of the bike.

Triumph hasn't revealed the pricing for these special edition bikes which will be on sale for a period of 12 months.
