The Triumph Rocket 3 R was the first BS6-compliant product the company produced in India. It had been released at Rs 18 lakh back in December 2019. But the upcoming Rocket 3 GT is expected to cost much more.
The Rocket 3 GT is powered by the same liquid-cooled, 2,500cc engine that produces 167hp at 6,000rpm and a whopping torque of 221Nm at 4,000rpm. The GT also uses an all-aluminum frame, with a stressed member serving as the engine. Suspension duties are performed by 47 mm, adjustable compression and rebound, Showa USD forks (with 120 mm travel) at the front and a rear monoshock with Showa piggyback reservoir and remote adjuster (with 107 mm travel).
With Brembo Stylema four-piston monobloc callipers and a 300 mm rear disc with Brembo M4.32, four-piston callipers, Braking, meanwhile, is done by twin 320 mm discs at the front.
The Rocket 3 R weighs 291 kg but the Rocket 3 GT tips the 294 kg scales. As we mentioned the Rocket 3 R is a roadster. It thus has a more sporty riding stance and a smooth, single-piece handlebar. The Rocket 3 GT has a comfortable riding position at 750 mm (773 mm on the R model), with forward-set foot pegs, a slightly pulled back handlebar and a lower seat height. Moreover, for the pillion, the GT is given a fly-screen, heated grips and a height-adjustable backrest.
