    Triumph Rocket 3 GT to be launched on September 10

    Triumph is set to launch the Rocket 3 GT on September 10, 2020. The GT, as the name suggests, is the cruiser version as opposed to the R that’s the street-oriented roadster already on sale in India.

    • The Rocket 3 GT is expected to cost more than the R

    • It has more relaxed ergonomics

    • The engine remains the same on both bikes

    The Triumph Rocket 3 R was the company’s first BS6-compliant offering in India. It was launched back in December 2019 at Rs 18 lakh. The upcoming Rocket 3 GT, however, is expected to cost slightly more.

    The Rocket 3 GT is powered by the same 2,500cc, liquid-cooled engine that produces 167hp at 6,000rpm and a whopping 221Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. The GT also uses an all-aluminium frame, with the engine acting as a stressed member. Suspension duties are taken care of by 47mm, compression and rebound adjustable, Showa USD forks (with 120mm travel) at the front and a monoshock at the rear with a Showa piggyback reservoir and remote adjuster (with 107mm travel). 

    Braking, meanwhile, is handled by twin 320mm discs at the front with Brembo Stylema four-piston monobloc calipers and a 300mm disc at the rear with Brembo M4.32, four-piston calipers.

    While the Rocket 3 R weighs 291kg, the Rocket 3 GT tips the scales at 294kg. The Rocket 3 R, as we’ve mentioned, is a roadster. Hence, it has a sportier riding position and a flat, single-piece handlebar. The Rocket 3 GT has a slightly relaxed riding position, with forward-set foot pegs, a slightly pulled-back handlebar and a lower seat height, at 750mm (773mm on the R model). In addition, the GT gets a fly-screen, heated grips and a height-adjustable backrest for the pillion.

    The alloy wheel design is the same on both models, except for the chrome accents on the GT.
