Triumph Rocket 3 GT is the new talk of the town with its massive dimensions, exclusive shade selection and host of changes in comparison to the regular and TFC variant of the motorcycle. The list of differences between the TFC and GT variant starts with the compact backrest seen on the grand tourer. The accessory is mounted on a stand that also doubles as the grab rail for the pillion.
The TFC variant’s black components are now chrome on the GT while alloy wheels also bring a visual difference to the model. The visible detail also confirms the use of Brembo front braking system plus a similar front suspension to the TFC variant. The Rocket 3 GT features a three-tone paint scheme on the fuel tank with silver as the base and red/black for the highlights.
The tail section of the Rocket 3 GT looks quite different as the TFC variant comes without any seat for the pillion. The independent tire hugger stays in action here but, the use of carbon fiber has been limited to the TFC limited production model.
As far as the overall design profile is concerned, the majority of the space is taken by the engine itself, further having three thick exhaust pipes coming out from the right side of the motorcycle. The fuel tank is well-placed as gaps like the regular bikes between the engine and fuel tank was not possible for the Rocket 3 GT. The alloy wheels used here features 5×2 chrome spokes and a similar number of black spokes.
The upcoming motorcycle will be powered by a 2500cc, three-cylinder engine producing 170 HP of maximum power and 221 Nm of maximum torque. The TFC variant is approximately 40kg lighter than the last-generation model while the Rocket 3 GT may not be as light as the top-spec variant due to the lack of carbon-fiber parts.
The headlights are LED-powered on both the 2019 variants. In the leaked image, behind the Triumph Rocket 3 GT, one can clearly see a watered down version with single tone paint, hinting that a base variant will also be available for the model.
