Triumph Rocket 3 Storm R, GT Revealed: Packing 182hp and 225Nm

Triumph has pulled back the curtains on the Rocket 3 Storm duo, marking a significant leap in power for the iconic motorcycle.

Enhanced Power and Design

Both the Rocket 3 Storm R and GT are propelled by the same liquid-cooled, 2,458cc, inline three-cylinder engine, now delivering a staggering 182hp at 7,000rpm and 225Nm of torque at 4,000rpm. This marks a notable increase of 15hp and 4Nm over the previous ‘standard’ Rocket 3 range. Surpassing even Triumph’s Speed Triple 1200 RS and the Ducati Diavel V4, the Rocket 3 Storm stands as a powerhouse in its own right.

Lightweight Construction and Agile Handling

Featuring new 10-spoke cast aluminum wheels, Triumph has aimed to reduce unsprung mass, enhancing the Rocket 3 Storm’s agility. While precise weight savings haven’t been disclosed, the switch from Avon Cobras to Metzeler Cruisetec tires maintains performance standards. Despite its power, the R model weighs in at 317kg with a fully brimmed 18-liter tank, with the GT variant slightly heavier.

High-Performance Braking and Comfortable Ergonomics

Equipped with twin Brembo Stylema calipers at the front and a radially-mounted Brembo M4.32 caliper at the rear, the Rocket 3 Storm promises impressive stopping power. Comfort is prioritized with manageable seat heights of 773mm for the R and 750mm for the GT.

Cutting-Edge Features and Customization Options

The Rocket 3 Storm shares its features with the standard Rocket 3, boasting a TFT dash controlling various riding aids. Electronic features include ABS, traction control supported by an IMU, four riding modes, hill hold control, and cruise control. Optional extras include heated grips, a bi-directional quickshifter, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and a Bluetooth module for the dash. Standard equipment comprises keyless ignition, all-LED lighting, and a USB charging port.

Sleek Aesthetics and Personalization

Distinguishing itself cosmetically, the Rocket 3 Storm features blacked-out components, with available colors covering either the top or bottom half of the tank for the R and GT, respectively.

Indian Market Availability and Pricing

Triumph has listed the Rocket 3 Storm models on its Indian website, priced at Rs 21.99 lakh for the R and Rs 22.59 lakh for the GT. With a premium of Rs 2.09 lakh over the standard variants, these potent versions are expected to grace Indian roads soon, given Triumph’s extensive presence in the country.
