British premium motorcycle manufacturer Triumph Motorcycles has started deliveries of the Rocket 3 R. The Rocket 3 R is available in India in two paint schemes, Korosi Red and Phantom Black and it is priced at Rs 18 lakh (ex-showroom).
Launched last month, the first delivery of the motorcycle will commence today in cities like Delhi, Pune, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Kochi. The second batch of deliveries is set to begin in February and March.
Speaking on the occasion, Shoeb Farooq said, “We’ve had an astounding demand to bring the product in the country and an even amplified response to the bookings. I’m glad to say that the first batch of 40 Rocket 3Rs- that are coming to India have been sold out. Keeping in mind the enthusiastic response we are receiving for our flagship motorcycle, our next action is to carry out the deliveries well within time.”
The Rocket 3 R gets its power from an in-line three 2,500 cc mill that churns out 167 PS of peak power at 6,000 rpm and 221 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 rpm, as claimed by the company.
