The Triumph Rocket 3 GT has been launched at certain place in Asian market. According to latest report, The Triumph Rocket 3 GT in Nepal will be launched by 2021. 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).
In addition, the GT gets a fly-screen, heated grips and a height-adjustable backrest for the pillion. The alloy wheel design is the same on both models, but for the chrome accents seen on the GT’s wheels. While the Rocket 3 R weighs 291kg, the Rocket 3 GT tips the scales at 294kg. Braking, meanwhile, is handled by twin 320mm discs at the front with Brembo Stylema four-piston monobloc calipers and a 300mm disc at the rear with Brembo M4.32, four-piston calipers.
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. Suspension duties are taken care of by 47mm, compression and rebound adjustable, Showa USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear with a Showa piggyback reservoir and remote adjuster.
The Rocket 3 GT is available in Silver Ice/Storm Grey or Phantom Black colour options. So far, Triumph has been pretty tight-lipped about the project and it's only recently that a handful of journalists in certain part of Asia were made privy to the motorcycle's design and some other details. The core engine specifications and features will be revealed in the following weeks. Stay tune with us for more auto news in Nepal.
