The Rocket 3 limited editions take the ultimate high-performance muscle roadster to a new level with an altogether meaner and moodier attitude.

Two distinctive and unique black paint schemes
The new limited edition Rocket 3 line-up comes in two stunning and sophisticated colour schemes. The Rocket 3 R Black, the ultimate muscle roadster, takes on a dark and moody style with a distinctive matt and gloss all-black paint scheme, with black tank badges and new ‘black’ branding. Alternatively the Rocket 3 GT Triple Black features a sophisticated dark style with a distinctive three-shade black paint scheme, while maintaining all of its laid-back and comfortable attitude.

 

Dedicated blacked out details and finishes
Both of the new limited edition Rocket 3 R and GT have been enhanced by a unique beautiful range of blacked out components that add an even more aggressive and dominant style, with a beautiful carbon-fibre front mudguard fitted as standard.

Their world leading 2,500cc engine comes fully blacked out, with unique black painted exhaust headers, heat shields and end caps. A dedicated crinkle black powder coated intake cover finishes off the blacked out engine style, and provides the new, limited edition Rockets with a meaner look and attitude.

The list of blacked-out components continues across both motorcycles. On the front, the new Rockets are enriched with black painted mudguard mounts, black painted headlight bezels, fly screen finishers, radiator cowls and badging. Contributing to the new darker look and style are black anodised components, including fork lowers, yokes, risers and handlebar clamps, rider footrests, brake and gear pedals, heel guards and pillion footrests and hangers. The list of black anodised components continues with the rear frame forging, RSU rocker, swingarm guard, side stand, brake and clutch levers, and premium black anodised bar-end mirrors with machined detailing fitted as standard (market dependent).

Incredible performance
The new Rocket limited edition line-up’s 2,500cc triple engine delivers incredible performance. In fact, it’s not only the largest production motorcycle engine in the World, but it also delivers the world’s highest torque at 221Nm. Maximum torque arrives at 4,000rpm and is held constantly through the mid-range, giving unparalleled acceleration and effortless riding at any gear.

Peak power is 167 PS @ 6,000 rpm and the triple engine is tuned to deliver power
from a low 3,500rpm, up to 7,000rpm.

The Rocket 3 R has recently demonstrated its incredible acceleration by setting a staggering new Triumph production motorcycle record of 0-60 mph in just 2.73 seconds.

The engine of this limited-edition carries the aggressive and dark style with a black painted finish on the iconic, hydroformed three-header exhaust run, which delivers the most magnificent, rich, triple engine roar.

The Rocket 3 R also features a high-performance six-speed helical-cut gearbox and a ’torque assist’ hydraulic clutch.

Phenomenal handling
In regard to handling, both the Rocket 3 R and GT are an absolute revelation, not only in terms of comfort and touring ease, but also in delivering a genuinely dynamic roadster ride, much more akin to a Speed Triple than a traditional cruiser.

Both models feature a lightweight aluminium frame and a very high specification of equipment – on the rear there’s a fully adjustable Showa monoshock RSU with a piggy back reservoir, while up front the upside down Showa 47mm cartridge front forks are adjustable for compression and rebound damping.

The brakes are Brembo’s top specification Stylema road going radial monobloc calipers with twin floating discs. These cutting edge calipers are a lightweight and compact design, with optimised air flow for efficient cooling.

Further highlighting the incredible specification of the Rocket, both models feature a high performance Brembo four piston monobloc caliper and 300mm disc on the rear.

For comfort, the Rocket 3 R and GT come with sculpted rider and pillion saddles, with unique black painted cast aluminium finishers under the seat. Seat height is a low 773mm on the Rocket 3 R, whilst on the GT the seat height is 750mm.

Both also have been designed for maximum seating flexibility, with the option to swop between a twin seat set-up to a single with the accessory infill pad, and to swop to either models set-up with a range of accessory options available. The foot peg position can also be adapted, with adjustable mid-foot controls on the Rocket R, with two vertical position settings to choose from.  The limited edition’s pillion foot pegs can also be hidden thanks to their elegant foldaway design, which comes in a unique black finish.

 

Class leading technology
The Rocket 3 comes with Triumph’s optimised cornering ABS and traction control as standard.  These are controlled by a sophisticated Inertial Measurement Unit which measures the roll, pitch, yaw and acceleration rates of the bike, in order to calculate the lean angle and optimise braking and traction control accordingly.

The instruments are Triumph’s latest generation full-colour TFTs, which are angle-adjustable and have two information layout themes that can be personalised.

The TFT system has the accessory My Triumph connectivity system software pre-installed, and ready to be activated with an accessory-fit Bluetooth module. This gives the rider GoPro interaction, turn-by-turn navigation and phone and music operation via the switch cubes, with all information displayed and accessible on the TFT screen.

Both models are equipped with four riding modes – Road, Rain, Sport and Rider-configurable – all of which can be easily changed while on the move via the illuminated switch cubes.  The riding modes adjust the throttle response and traction control settings to suit rider preference and riding conditions.

For low energy consumption, increased durability and greater visibility, the Rocket 3 R has all-LED lighting, including a twin LED headlight, a beautifully-shaped tail light, indicators and the number plate light. (Market restrictions may apply)

Dependent on the market, the headlights also incorporate the signature shaped LED Daytime Running Lights, increasing rider visibility to other road users.

As standard the Rocket comes equipped with hill hold control, cruise control, keyless ignition and keyless steering lock, and a USB charging socket.
