Triumph Rocket 3 GT: The ultimate high-performance muscle roadster
Launched in 2004, Triumph’s legendary Rocket III was a pure original with more muscle, presence and torque than any of the competition. Now, the all-new Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT line-up heralds the genesis of a new motorcycle legend.
With the world’s largest production motorcycle engine at 2,500cc, the new Rocket 3s deliver more power, 11% up on the previous generation, and the highest torque of any production motorcycle you can buy with 221Nm @ 4,000 rpm. Combining imposing muscular stance and magnificent style, the highest levels of technology, Triumph’s class-leading handling, all of the Rocket’s world-renowned presence and all-day easy riding capability, the new Rockets are in a class of their own.
Differences to the Roadster: fitted as standard with forward mounted foot pegs, pillion back-rest, heated grips and fly screen, the Rocket 3 GT is ready to travel.
Ride Enhancing Technology
Taking the capability to the highest-ever level, the Rocket 3s feature a class-leading standard of rider-focused technology, including:
2nd generation TFT instruments
Both models feature Triumph’s latest generation full-colour TFT instruments, which is more sophisticated, more personalisable and offers much more functionality than the instruments on the previous generation. The TFT unit is angle-adjustable for optimum visibility and has a stylish design and two information layout themes that can be personalised, allowing the rider to update the start-up screen message with their name.
Optimised Cornering ABS – supported by an IMU
The Optimised Cornering ABS is fitted as standard on both Rocket 3 R and GT. This maintains the optimum braking performance, whatever the lean angle.
Optimised Cornering Traction Control – supported by an IMU
Both Rocket 3 models also feature Optimised Cornering Traction Control as standard. This maintains the optimum level of traction control for the lean angle of the bike.
IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit
An advanced Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) developed in partnership with Continental, supports the optimum function of the Optimised Cornering ABS and Traction Control. This takes constant measurements of roll, pitch, yaw, lean angle and acceleration rates, responding with appropriate active safety features.
4 riding modes
Both models feature Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-configurable riding modes which adjust the throttle response and traction control settings to suit rider preference and riding conditions. The riding modes are easily changed on the move via the intuitive
illuminated switch cubes.
All-LED lighting with DRL* headlight
Both Rocket 3 models come with all-LED lighting, including a new twin LED headlight unit, tail light, indicators (*in applicable markets) and number plate light. The headlights also incorporate LED Daytime Running Lights (*in applicable markets) which provide excellent visibility and a distinctive light profile.
Hill Hold Control
Both models features hill hold control as standard. This feature prevents the bike rolling backwards for enhanced rider confidence and maximum control, even with a pillion and when fully loaded. The system applies the rear brake until sensing that the rider is starting to move off, and is activated using the front brake lever. The feature is switchable via the bike set-up menu.
Electronic cruise control is fitted as standard to both Rocket 3 models. This feature reduces rider fatigue over long journeys and can be easily accessed while riding
for maximum convenience and safety.
Keyless ignition and steering Lock
Triumph’s keyless ignition system is fitted as standard on both models. The system recognises the proximity of the keyless fob and then enables ignition via the switch cube mounted start button. There is also the ability to disable the key’s wireless transmission function at the touch of a button for even greater security.
Heated grips are also fitted as standard to the Rocket 3 GT, and are available as an accessory on the Rocket 3 R. These are neatly integrated with a button on the left hand grip providing greater rider comfort, with two modes.
Both new Rocket 3s feature a 5V USB power socket under the seat, for charging
