One of the great novelties for the 2020 motorcycles is the new Triumph Rocket 3. Both for its size and for the iconic nature of the model, the great British custom is one of those strikingly striking motorcycles that give us a particularly high desire to ride a motorcycle.
With oversized measurements and the most grotesque combustion engine on the market, the Rocket 3 can't go unnoticed. We only needed to know its price and now we know it: from 23,000 euros.
Triumph Rocket 3: 167 hp and an exorbitant torque of 221 Nm
The heart of this beast is a powerful in-line three-cylinder engine positioned longitudinally, that is, with the cylinders aligned in the direction of travel and the crankshaft turning to one side. Inside there is a capacity of 2,458 cubic centimeters that become 167 hp of maximum power and 221 Nm of torque.
These numbers have to contend with a set of XXL dimensions in which the wheelbase goes up to 1,677 mm. The overall weight in running order remains below the 300 kg barrier (291 kg to be exact). The question that arises is how its autonomy will be with such magnitudes and an 18-liter tank.
To contain these figures, a new generation aluminum frame is used that has lost a few kilos and is associated with quality suspensions: Dimmable Showa both on the front inverted fork and the rear Piggi-back monoshock.
The braking team is not barefoot either and you have to be able to stop this mass capable of going very fast. For this, a team entirely signed by Brembo is used with a double 320 mm front disc and advanced four-piston radial calipers. Brembo Stylema.
The electronics It has leapt forward for this new generation, leaving the old Rocket III far behind. In 2020 it will debut a second generation digital TFT dashboard that hides a complete technical package with inertial measurement platform, driving modes, traction control, ABS with cornering assistance, hill start assistant, cruise control or keyless start.
The new Triumph Rocket 3 will arrive in dealerships throughout the last two weeks of December, rushing 2019 to the max and becoming a succulent gift for this Christmas as long as your pockets are well full.
The price of the Rocket 3 will start at 23,000 euros for the Rocket 3 R version (in Korosi Red or Phantom Black), the sportier of the two available, while the Rocket 3 GT starts at 23,800 euros with more complete equipment and specific decorations (Silver Ice / Storm Gray with details in hand painted red or Phantom Black).
