- Likely to carry a price premium over the Rocket 3 R
- Gets touring focused ergonomics and equipment
- Powered by a 2,500cc, inline three-cylinder motor
Triumph Motorcycles India will be updating its product portfolio with the launch of the Rocket 3 GT tomorrow. The GT variant is the touring focused version of the Rocket 3 R power cruiser. The GT, along with the standard Rocket 3 R, will rival the Ducati Diavel 1260 in the Indian market.
The Rocket 3 GT comes packed with additional equipment over the standard model, and thus we expect the upcoming motorcycle to carry a price premium over the R variant. The Rocket 3 R, for reference, retails at Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom India).
The GT variant comes with a more relaxed riding position that has been achieved through the forward-set footpegs and a touring-style handlebar. The motorcycle also gets a taller windscreen, adjustable pillion footrests, heated grips and a pillion backrest as standard. The rest of the equipment, however, is similar to the R variant. Thus, the Rocket 3 GT features twin-LED headlamps, a cropped rear fender, slash-cut exhausts, and a single-sided swingarm. The motorcycle also gets a Bluetooth-enabled full-colour TFT dash with GoPro controls.
Mechanical specifications include a 2,500cc, inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled motor that produces 165bhp of power and 221Nm of peak torque. The electronics on the motorcycle comprise of four ride modes, traction control system, cornering ABS, and hill-hold control.
