Triumph Rocket 3 GT and Rocket 3 R

Triumph India has introduced new Storm versions of the Rocket 3 GT and Rocket 3 R to the Indian market. Priced at ₹22.59 lakh and ₹21.99 lakh, respectively (ex-showroom), these models come with both cosmetic updates and changes to the engine output.

Both motorcycles feature blacked-out elements and are available in three color options: Carnival Red with Sapphire Black, Satin Pacific Blue with Matt Sapphire Black, and Sapphire Black with Granite. The intake cover is now blacked-out, and the exhaust headers are hydro-formed.

Additionally, various components, such as the rear frame forging, swingarm guard, fork lowers and yokes, risers and handlebar clamps, RSU Rocker, seat finisher, footrests & hangers for rider and pillion, brake and gear pedals, levers, and side stand, have been black anodized.

The engine remains unchanged, featuring a 2,458 cc, 3-cylinder liquid-cooled unit. However, Triumph has increased the power output from 165 bhp to 180 bhp at 7,000 rpm, while torque has been bumped up from 221 Nm to 225 Nm. Torque delivery still starts at just 4,000 rpm. The gearbox remains a 6-speed unit, with an optional quickshifter available.

Triumph has updated the wheel design for the Rocket 3, now featuring ten-spoke wheels with a 16-inch rear and a 17-inch front wheel, both made of aluminum, reducing the unsprung mass.

The motorcycles come equipped with a host of features, including a TFT screen, cornering ABS, traction control, four riding modes, all LED lighting with a daytime running lamp, hill hold control, cruise control, keyless ignition, and backlit switches.
