Triumph Rocket 3 GT launched at Rs 18.4 lakh

The Triumph Rocket 3 GT has been launched at Rs 18.4 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Rocket 3 GT costs Rs 40,000 more than the Rocket 3 R that was launched late last year.

The GT, as the name suggests, is the cruiser version of the Rocket 3, while the R is the street-oriented roadster. The latter has a sportier riding position and a flat, single-piece handlebar.

The Rocket 3 GT has a slightly relaxed riding position, with forward-set foot pegs, a slightly pulled-back handlebar and a lower seat height, at 750mm (compared to 773mm on the R).

Powering the Rocket 3 GT is the same 2,500cc, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine from the R that produces 167hp at 6,000rpm and a massive 221Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. Like the R, the GT also uses an all-aluminium frame, with the engine acting as a stressed member. Asianet Online
