The premium blacked-out theme is continued across both models with the headlight bezels, radiator cowls, fly screen finishers and rear bodywork finishers all unique and expertly painted to a deep black lustre.
BLACKED-OUT STYLE THAT’S BUILT TO LAST
The tough, blacked-out finish is as durable as it is desirable.

Black-anodised parts bring even more detail to these very special editions. The rear frame forging and fold-away pillion footrests maintain the distinctive Black theme along with the clean, minimalist lines of the Rocket 3’s rear end. The swinging arm guard, rear suspension rocker, side stand, bar-end mirrors, footrests, heel guards and hangers, and brake pedal have all been matched to suit, the detail going as far as your fingertips, with the exclusive black clutch and brake levers.

REASONS TO RIDE
1. 2,500CC - WORLD’S LARGEST PRODUCTION MOTORCYCLE ENGINE
The previous generation Rocket already held the distinction of having the world’s largest production motorcycle engine (previously 2,300cc), but this next generation Rocket 3 line-up has raised the bar even higher with an all-new 2,500cc Triumph triple which delivers an even higher capacity and performance. Incredible design innovations have found 18kg engine weight savings over its predecessor with new mass-optimised crankcase assembly, a new lubrication system comprising dry sump and integral oil tank, and new balancer shafts. What’s more, this powerplant masterpiece is exquisitely engineered, with beautiful finish and detailing throughout including stunning machined fins on both the upper and lower crankcases.
2. INCREDIBLE ACCELERATION AND TORQUE
The new Rocket 3’s performance figures have elevated this incredible motorcycle range up to a whole new level. The new Rocket’s peak power (167PS @ 6,000rpm) is 11% up on the predecessor Rocket and the new engine generates an increase in power from 3,500rpm and all the way up to the new higher red line of 7,000rpm. Peak torque – 221Nm at 4,000rpm – is a world best and a figure that’s a breathtaking 71% higher than the Rocket’s closest competitor and higher than the previous generation across almost the entire rev range. In practical riding terms, this translates to an acceleration figure of 0-60mph in 2.8 seconds.
3. INCREDIBLE HANDLING
An extremely high level of equipment specification contributes to the incredible handling and comfort of the new Rocket 3 R and GT. This includes high-spec adjustable Showa front and rear suspension set-ups, a cutting edge Brembo brakes set-up with the highest available specification Brembo Stylema® calipers to deliver an incredible breaking performance and immediate response. The mass optimised aluminium frame of the new Rocket 3 line-up is an unwelded construction that has premium cast and forged components, making the frame lighter and contributing to a massive 40kg weight saving compared to the predecessor Rocket. In addition, optimised cornering ABS and traction control, which is supported by an Inertial Measurement Unit developed with Continental, provide an enhanced level of riding stability to ensure optimum brake force, optimised slip rate and torque control that improves both straight line and cornering, acceleration and braking.
4. DOMINATING PRESENCE
There’s no denying that the new Rocket 3 range delivers arguably the most powerful and distinctive silhouettes in motorcycling, guaranteeing a dominating presence wherever you ride. It conveys magnificent style to your riding with a host of signature design features, and the bike’s beautiful details bring an unparalleled level of finish and quality. Packed with motorcycling design innovations that create clean flowing lines, and adjustable ergonomics that deliver maximum comfort for all rider sizes, the new Rocket 3s have a genuine muscular presence to go with their all-day riding comfort.
5. RIDE-ENHANCING TECHNOLOGY
The Rocket 3 enjoys state-of-the-art technology enhancements that transform the functionality and riding experience of your Rocket 3 ride. Higher functionality 2nd generation TFT instruments incorporate a stylish minimal design with two dynamic information layout design themes that can be tailored to suit preference, including a feature that allows the rider to personalise the start-up screen message with their name.
In addition, on top of the optimised cornering ABS and traction control, other Rocket 3 technology highlights include four riding modes (Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-Configurable), hill hold control, cruise control, keyless ignition and steering lock, with heated grips as standard on the Rocket 3 GT (accessory fit available for the R).
6. MY TRIUMPH CONNECTIVITY SYSTEM
The all-new My Triumph Connectivity System allows for motorcycle-integrated GoPro functionality with the camera operation displayed on TFT instrument screen and being easily controlled via the switchgear. There is also an all-new ‘MY TRIUMPH’ app delivering connected technology functions including route planner with turn-by-turn navigation. And you can also benefit from an integrated phone and music operation as well
7. IMPOSING POISE AND STANCE
Both the new Rocket 3 R and GT each enjoy a distinctive silhouette with a stunning contemporary design.
High-specification Avon Cobra Chrome tyres have been developed especially for the new Rocket 3 line-up, and the imposing tyre size adds to the distinctive muscular presence of these motorcycles. In addition, a unique single-sided swingarm contributes to the new Rocket 3’s clean, uncluttered styling, and to the bikes’ compact and minimal rear end. While both models have intricate lightweight 20-spoke cast aluminium wheels, the R’s wheels have a beautiful blacked-out finish, while the Rocket 3 GT model displays exposed machining on rim and spokes.
8. SIGNATURE DESIGN FEATURES
Enhancing the Rocket 3’s incredible aesthetics are a host of premium details and signature design features that maximise the bike’s muscular presence including: innovative sculpted 3-header exhaust run to highlight the imposing engine size; signature all-new twin LED headlight* with beautiful Triumph maker’s mark triangle branding; a unique seat seat-up for each bike with comfortable sculpted rider and pillion seats with dedicated tailored saddle that creates a flowing line through the bike – with the GT variant featuring an adjustable brushed aluminium pillion backrest – and all-LED lighting* with distinctive Daytime Running Lights* for maximum visibility.
