The 2020 Triumph Rocket III has been spied undisguised with a more muscular look and better features.
The current model of the Triumph Rocket III cruiser is due for a major redesign as it has been in the same shape in the United States since 2004. It was discontinued in Europe as it didn’t meet Euro-4 emission norms. But now, there is good news for the people who have been keeping a close eye on this big cruiser. Triumph is developing the next generation version of the Rocket III and we now have a few spy shots doing the rounds on the internet.
Aesthetically, this 2020 Triumph Rocket III has a lot of updates. A large monoshock has been given in this new model, which also indicates that the motorcycle might have adopted a new frame. It looks a lot more muscular and beautiful.
The front suspension is bigger than before with beefy inverted forks. The brakes are sourced from Brembo and get ABS too. The footpegs for the rider are very forward set, being conveniently different from the setup seen on the sketches at the dealers’ meet. Hence, we can expect more than one variant of the motorcycle to be in the works.
Certain other visual changes include new twin-LED headlights, a new design for the fuel tank and bar-end mirrors. The rear tyre hugger, though small, holds the registration number plate and turn signal indicators.
The engine might be bumped up to be closer to 2500cc from the current 2294cc. It will definitely be compliant with the Euro-4 emission norms. In fact, it might be made to abide by the stricter Euro-5 norms too (set to come in 2020).
