All new Triumph Rocket III to be launched with a new platform in 2019.
The all-new Triumph Rocket III’s design sketch was revealed to dealers in an event in October. This was followed by a test mule of the bike being swiftly ridden across the stage. From both these instances, it has become very clear that Triumph is going to put out a very tough competition to the likes of the Ducati Diavel.
In the closed-door event held in October, Triumph claimed the bike to have performance figures that would put it in a class of its own. The bike is claimed to churn out 180 BHP from the 2.5-litre inline-triple powerhouse. There are hints that say this bike will make an excess of 230 Nm of torque at 3000 RPM.
On the designing front, the performance cruiser gets huge triple clamps and forks that sit on top of the Brembo M50 calipers paired with what seem to be 330 mm floating discs. These discs are paired to a completely new front wheel. The rear wheel also has a new design and is attached to a single-sided swingarm.
Other than the sky high performance figures, the Rocket III is expected to be loaded with tech as well. The bike is speculated to get traction control, high-spec cornering ABS and multiple modes for the riders to choose from. We also expect bluetooth connectivity for GoPro and Google Maps and a full TFT-display with multiple display modes.
Knowing Triumph, it is a safe bet to say that the manufacturer will not release just one Rocket III after developing an entirely new platform. We believe that Triumph will have an entirely new Rocket III line based off this performance cruiser. The Triumph Rocket III is planned to be launched in 2019.
