Triumph Rocket III holds the title of carrying the world’s largest motorcycle engine under the fuel tank. It was discontinued from the Indian market and internationally, the model is ready to receive a complete overhaul in 2019. The next generation Triumph Rocket III is preparing itself for a new frame, design enhancement and a bigger than ever 2.5L, three-cylinder engine. The new motorcycle was first revealed to the dealers in October while an uncamouflaged test mule was recently spotted on the public roads. The new 2.5L inline-3 engine is said to generate a massive 180 BHP and 230 Nm of torque.
The maximum torque is available at just 3000 rpm. The design details reveal a huge fuel tank, bigger than ever engine cooler, massive USD front forks, dual Brembo M50 front disc brakes, huge seat with enough padding to absorb the vibrations well and almost negligible rear seat size in comparison to the front seat. The twin headlight design is still very impressive for a flagship cruiser. Triumph Rocket III rivals none other than Ducati xDiavel in the country. Even this competition is indirect in comparison with the Rocket due to the huge difference in engine size for both the bikes. Even Harley cruisers feel light in comparison to the new Rocket. The exhaust design closeup reveals a premium metallic finish for the motorcycle.
The single-sided swingarm, traction control, cornering ABS and riding modes guarantee impressive performance from the motorcycle. The best ever factor for Rocket III is that is will be made lighter to achieve better overall control than just drag-style performance. The international launch will open the doors for Triumph Rocket to India and thus, those loving huge cruiser and unique engine size can get their hands on the new model in 2019. The design upgrades will help Triumph get an improved overall stance and better overall performance. The last-gen variant weighs 367 kg.
