    Triumph Motorcycles has released a teaser image announcing the launch of a new bike in the Indian market. The upcoming bike is the Triumph Rocket Rocket 3 GT and will be launched on September 10.

    The GT variant is the more cruiser-like and more comfortable variant of the Rocket 3. For this purpose it features a swept-back handlebar, forward-set footpegs, windscreen and comfier seats. It also offers customisation to the rider as the handlebar position can be lowered by 15mm, while the footpegs can be adjusted by 25mm forward or rearward. The pillion also gets a brushed aluminium backrest for better comfort. Additionally, the Rocket 3 GT sports diamond-cut alloy wheels.

    The highlight of the Rocket 3 has always been its powerplant and with the new bike, Triumph has taken it a notch higher. It’s powered by a humongous 2,458cc triple-cylinder motor that pumps out 167PS and an earth-moving 221Nm of torque. This makes it the highest displacement production motorcycle on sale globally. Understandably, Triumph has loaded the bike with electronic aids such as cornering ABS, traction control, four riding modes and cruise control.

    It also features an all-aluminium frame with the engine as the stressed member and weighs 291kg (dry). You might think that the new Rocket 3 is a heavy bike, but, the cruiser is 40kg lighter than the older bike, which is impressive given the larger 2.5-litre motor. Braking hardware consists of top-spec Brembo M4.30 Stylema 4-piston radial calipers upfront, something that will be crucial for stopping this behemoth.
