Triumph motorcycles recently unveiled the latest generation of its super-cruiser in the international markets, the Rocket 3. The motorcycle is available in two variants and retains the title of the largest displacement production motorcycle in the world.
The Rocket 3 will be available in two variants including the Rocket 3 R and the Rocket 3 GT. The R variant is built as a roadster with mid-position footrests and a more aggressive riding stance. The GT gets feet-forward footrests and a touring style handlebar. It also gets a more comfortable seating, a backrest for the pillion, a taller flyscreen and heated grips. Its footrest position for the pillion can be adjusted as well.
The displacement of the motorcycles has increased by 164cc and they now get a 2,458cc engine. It makes 165 PS of maximum power and 221 Nm of peak torque. It makes 11 percent more power than the previous generation as it gets a tweaked crankcase, balance shafts and a dry-sump lubrication system. It also gets a new 6-speed transmission and a hydraulically actuated clutch with torque assist for lesser efforts in clutch operation.
Triumph has not revealed the official prices of both the variants of the Rocket 3 in India, but it should be lower than the special edition Rocket 3 TFC, which has a price tag of Rs 19.94 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycles are expected to be launched in India by mid-2020.
