Beast has grown bigger and stronger 2020 Triumph Rocket III to get 2500cc engine
Spy shots of 2020 Triumph Rocket III have emerged on the internet a few days back. I thought of ignoring it but couldn’t do as the biggest displacement motorcycle is getting an even bigger engine. Yes, you heard it right.
The older generation Rocket III had a displacement of 2300cc and now 2020 Triumph Rocket III gets the more powerful 2500cc engine. It won’t be wrong if we call new Rocket III as the ‘God of Bikes’.
2020 Triumph Rocket III gets a whole lot of changes when compared to previous generation motorcycle. At first, the bike’s images were leaked at a dealership meet somewhere around the world. And now we can see it without any camouflage. This time around, the bike gets a power cruiser stance like that of Ducati Daviel 1260.
Speaking about the design changes, the bike gets LED headlights, new fully digital instrument cluster (TFT display like that of new Scrambler 1200). The footpegs are forward placed and coupled with flat handlebars, will give you an aggressive riding posture. The tail section is now smaller and barely gets a pillion seat.
A 2500cc, inline 3-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine will power the 2020 Triumph Rocket III. This beast of an engine will blast somewhere around 180 horsepower and earth axis tilting 230 Newton meters of torque. I think I slightly exaggerated the torque output, never mind. The powerplant comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox which will help it move past the warp speed. Whoa!
2020 Triumph Rocket III to be the most powerful power cruiser with 180 bhp and 230 Nm
The previous generation Rocket III tipped the scale at 370 kg, it’s easy to tell in tons though, like 0.37 tons. The new bike will likely to weigh a little lesser due to usages of lighter materials like composites and carbon fiber. New Rocket gets single-sided swingarm with shaft drive. That’s cool, isn’t it? The registration plate holder is attached to the swingarm itself.
One of my favorite design elements in 2020 Triumph Rocket III is the smaller hollow-ish large mouth exhaust pipes which completely reveal the fat rear tyre. This appeals to the raw power the bike has, and it’s killing.
Suspension duties are performed by Thick USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Previous Generation Rocket had twin shocker absorbers. Brakes are updated to Brembo units in Radially mounted calipers.
The company is likely to showcase 2020 Triumph Rocket III in EICMA 2019 as a 2020 model. Launch of the bike will happen in late 2019 or early 2020. In India, we have to wait a little longer.
