Apart from the introduction of new colour options, no other change has been done to the bikes. Both the bike carry over the familiar exterior design with bits such as twin-pod headlight, split-style seats, rear tyre-hugger-mounted numberplate and turn indicators, bar-end mirrors, a muscular fuel tank, single-sided swingarm, and wide-profile tyres. The higher-spec ‘GT’ version is further amped up with touring-focussed factory mounted accessories such as a flyscreen and pillion backrest.
The heart of the bikes remains the same 2,458cc, inline three-cylinder, liquid-cooled unit that is responsible for delivering 165bhp of maximum power at 6,000rpm and a massive 221Nm of peak torque at 4,000rpm. The motor is married to a six-speed gearbox.
Triumph Motorcycles India sells three variants of the Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT each. The newly updated models are likely to be announced for the market soon. Meanwhile, the company has also recently introduced new colours on bikes such as Speed Triple 1200 RS and Trident 660.
