Here’s a Look at What’s Coming
We’ve already reported on the TFC version of the Triumph Rocket 3. Now we have some more insight on the production version of the bike. This version won’t be quite as special as the TFC one, but it’ll still pack gobs of torque, plenty of power and most of what you’ll expect from a Rocket 3.
Morebikes shared a photo and information from the German publication Motorrad. The publication was able to snag some images (one of which is shown above) and provide readers with some important technical information about the model. According to Motorrad, the motorcycle will get a three-cylinder 2,458cc engine which will kick out in excess of 170 hp and over 162 ft-lb of torque. That’s a serious bump up from the previous bike.
The publication goes on to state that the 2020 Rocket 3 will be considerably lighter weight than the old bike. That means the increase in power will be even more noticeable. The 2020 model should come in at around 640 pounds, which is down from the old model by almost 100 pounds.
Additional things of note that Motorrad points out include Brembo brakes, ride-by-wire throttle control, traction control, hill start assist, four ride modes, shift assistance for clutchless upshifts, and a new TFT dash. All of this should make for a Rocket 3 that’s pretty amazing. We’ll keep you posted with any new developments.
