triumph rocket 3 introduces roadster and grand touring editions

imposing with its muscular stance, triumph ‘rocket 3’ continues the legendary motorcycle line with two new models: R and GT. the R – standing for roadster – unites exceptional torque, control and capability with comfort. whereas, the GT – standing for grand tourer – combines performance with comfort in a cruiser-like style.

the triumph ‘rocket 3’ R and GT enhances what the brand say is the largest production motorcycle engine at 2,500cc. this delivers 165 hp and 221 Nm of torque. its exhilarating riding experience is complemented by advanced technology, including optimized cornering ABS and traction control, four riding modes (road, rain, sport and rider-configurable), hill hold control and cruise control.

the new design is distinct with its twin LED headlights, sculpted 3-header exhaust run and 20-spoke cast aluminum wheels. flexibility is then offered with interchangeable twin and single seat set-ups, and hidden folding pillion footrests. it also includes a comprehensive luggage range and accessories. the main difference between the two models is that the R features roadster-style handlebars while the GT’s are widely sculpted for touring.
