Triumph Motorcycles is gearing up to unwrap the all-new sporty Rocket 3 in India. The event is scheduled to be held on 5th December 2019. The company will reveal the bike before 2019 India Bike Week (IBW) in Goa. So, the Indian two-wheeler market will soon get its next tough competitor in the performance segment. The look of Rocket 3 is just mindblowing with its husky presence and latest trendy design.
The upcoming Triumph bike has many distinct features and well as a completely new design when compared with the company’s other models. It has got a completely new makeover with a powerful engine as well. The bike is developed in a new platform and is already trading in the global market as Rocket 3 R and the Rocket 3 GT. However, the company has not made an official announcement whether they will bring both the trims in India.
By revealing the bike, the company will celebrate its successful six-year existence in the Indian market. In terms of looks, the bold motorcycle gets a handlebar and footpegs which are located in the centre. It is outfitted with outcast wheels with black polish. The GT variant is a build for touring as it highlights lower seat height, an adjustable backrest, adjustable rear footpegs, a higher flyscreen and fiery grips.
The newly developed engine is now 18kg lighter in weight as it gets new crankcase set up, lubrication equipment and a balancer shaft. In terms of overall weight, the bike is 40kg lighter compared to other models in spite of the husky appearance. Talking about the feature, the bike has many new elements like a Bluetooth-enabled fully-coloured TFT instrument cluster that makes riding more comfortable.
Triumph Rocket 3 runs on the largest motor on a mass-production two-wheeler. It is powered by a powerful 2500cc, inline three-cylinder engine which churns out 167hp of max power and 221Nm of peak torque. Furthermore, the bike offers four riding modes for better riding experience: a traction control system, cornering ABS and hill-hold control. It claims acceleration of 0-60 mph (0-96 kmph) in just 2.79 seconds.
In terms of suspension, the bike features a 47mm Showa USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. The braking duties of Rocket 3 are handled by twin 320mm disc brakes at the front and 300mm disc at the rear that transmits excellent gripping strength on road. This power machine is expected to be launched at a price tag of Rs 23 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. It might be officially launched in 2020. It will rival against the likes of Ducati Diavel 1260 and the Ducati XDiavel.
