We’ve seen the Triumph Gold Line editions and now the British firm has announced a limited-edition range of hand-crafted motorcycled called the ‘Chrome Collection’.
Encompassing 10 separate models across the Rocket 3 and Modern Classics families, Triumph says the Chrome Collection “celebrates the craftsmanship and artistry that sits at the heart of Triumph’s DNA”.
The accompanying images reveal varying levels of chrome, accents, stripes, surrounds, seams stripes, infills, detailing and badging, complemented by dedicated and often colour-matched fly screens, mudguards, cowls, panels, heat shields, cowls and headlight bowls. We think we’ve covered all bases!
Orders are now being taken ahead of the collection’s arrival in Australia by early 2023, and here’s the real shot in the arm: for limited-edition models the pricing is mightily impressive, most retailing around $1250 more than the standard models. Only the two Rocket 3s – the R and GT – are marginally beyond that bracket, but we’re only talking a couple of hundred bucks.
And there are even chrome accessory kits to add even more gravitas!

And talking about objects of beauty, we can’t go sign off without showing you this official video that Triumph produced soon after it released the original Rocket 3 (then known as the Rocket III) in the 2000s. We think it’s a cracker!
Mark ‘Mav’ Fattore has been hanging around the motorcycle scene longer than he can remember, but still struggles to contain his two-wheel exuberance. He also eats like a bull-at-a-gate, which is why he once swallowed the prong off a plastic fork stuffing down Chinese takeaway during a frenetic magazine deadline. The digital space is a safer haven, and he’ll turn his writing hand to anything.
