Triumph Motorcycles launched and commenced the booking for the all-new Rocket 3 GT in India at Rs 18.40 lakh (ex-showroom).
Featuring the world’s biggest production engine, the Rocket 3 GT is the touring variant of the Rocket 3R launched earlier in December 2019. With the addition of the new variant, Triumph is the only premium manufacturer in India to have the largest BS-VI portfolio.

•Triumph Rocket 3 GT makes 167bhp and 221Nm of torque
•Focused on touring the GT gets a fly-screen, heated grips and also a height-adjustable backrest for the pillion
Like its road focussed sibling the Rocket 3 GT draws power from the same 2.5-litre motor in-line three motor as on the 3 R. This massive triple makes only 167bhp but pairs that with 221Nm of torque from a little a 4,000rpm. While power is up 11% over the previous rocket, it’s the torque that Triumph really want to sell. Specifically, enough to strip the concrete off the pavement before you even hit second gear! Triumph claim that the specific torque output is 71% higher than what you’d get from its closest competitor. Suspension and damping will be handled by a set of 47mm Showa upside-down forks with a Showa mono-shock at the back. Twin 320mm disc brakes up-front and a 300mm disc at the back will help reel in this 312kg (kerb) force of nature
The 3 GT, as the name suggests, gets a more laid back riding triangle with forward-set footpegs and a slightly raised handlebar that is less of a reach than the forward set 3 R. The 750mm seat help keep the weight low and the bike stable under heavy acceleration from the aforementioned torques. In terms of touring-oriented features, the GT comes with a fly-screen, heated grips and also a height-adjustable backrest for the pillion. The GT will be available in two colour schemes, a full-black called Phantom Black, a silver and grey called SIlver ice and Storm Grey. Bookings for Triumph’s new cruiser are now open officially across the country.
