Dark Moody Rocket 3 Whips Up A Storm

A storm is coming in the form of two new Triumph Rocket 3’s, the R and GT. Due to arrive in Australian dealerships in April the new Rocket 3 Storm R will be priced from $38,890 ride away, whilst the Rocket 3 Storm GT will be priced from $39,890 ride away.

Twenty years after the first Rocket III burst onto the motorcycle scene as the ultimate muscle roadster, a new generation of Rocket has been revealed, delivering more performance, better handling and a dark, moody colour scheme. It even has a new name, the Rocket 3 Storm, to match its muscular style and spectacular riding experience.

Featuring the world’s largest production motorcycle engine with a capacity of 2458cc, the new Rocket 3 Storm R and GT gain 11kW peak power, now delivering a massive 134kW at 7000rpm.

Torque has also been increased by 4Nm, reaching a new peak of 225Nm at a low 4000rpm. This flat, rich torque curve with maximum torque all the way through the mid-range gives explosive acceleration and effortless response in any gear.

The Rocket’s 16-inch rear and 17-inch front wheels have been updated with a sportier ten-spoke cast aluminium design, reducing unsprung mass. This reduction has a positive impact on steering response while on the move, improving the Rocket’s already impressive agility.

The strong and lightweight aluminium frame, first introduced in 2019, uses cast and forged elements for an exceptional torque-to-weight ratio.

Following the sales success of recent special edition Rockets which featured blacked-out components, the new Rocket 3 Storm models feature a dark, moody colour scheme and an impeccable level of quality detailing.

The large 18-litre tank features the new Storm name, and each model has three distinctive two-tone colour options. The R is available in Carnival Red with Sapphire Black, Satin Pacific Blue with Matt Sapphire Black and Sapphire Black with Granite.

The GT is available in the same colours, but the split of the tank is reversed, providing a distinctive, high impact look and consistent colour choice across both models. The Rocket 3 Storm also comes with high-quality black finishes throughout.

Also new for 2024, the Rocket 3 Storm now exceeds the latest Euro 5b requirements, featuring liquid cooling, low emissions and excellent fuel efficiency.

Paul Stroud, Triumph’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Known around the world as the ultimate muscle roadster, the Rocket has already achieved global sales of more than 18,000 since the 2.5-litre engine was introduced in 2019.

By listening to feedback from our customers, we know they love the Rocket’s muscular presence and heart-stopping performance. We also know that riders desire even more.
