2022 Triumph Rocket 3 GT Triple Black

2022 Triumph Rocket 3 GT Triple Black

Limited to 1,000 units worldwide, the Triumph Rocket R Black and Rocket 3 GT Triple Black will feature a certificate of authenticity that lists every motorcycle’s VIN. Nevertheless, the bikes won’t feature an individually numbered plaque.

Mechanically, the Rocket 3 R Black and 3 GT Triple Black are identical to their commonplace Rocket 3 counterparts. The enormous 2,458cc in-line triple, which produces a robust 167 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and a stump-pulling 163 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.

The previous generation Rocket already held the distinction of having the world’s largest production motorcycle engine (previously 2,300cc), but this next generation Rocket 3 lineup raised the bar even higher with an all-new 2,500cc Triumph triple which delivers an even higher capacity and performance. Incredible design innovations have found 39.68 lb engine weight savings over its predecessor with new mass-optimized crankcase assembly, a new lubrication system comprising dry sump and integral oil tank, and new balancer shafts. What’s more, this powerplant masterpiece is exquisitely engineered, with beautiful finish and detailing throughout including stunning machined fins on both the upper and lower crankcases.

The new Rocket 3’s performance figures have elevated this incredible motorcycle range up to a whole new level.  The new Rocket’s peak power (165 HP @ 6,000 rpm) is 11% up on the predecessor Rocket and the new engine generates an increase in power from 3,500 rpm and all the way up to the new higher redline of 7,000 rpm.  Peak torque – 163 LB-FT at 4,000 rpm – is a world best and a figure that’s a breathtaking 71% higher than the Rocket’s closest competitor and higher than the previous generation across almost the entire rev range.  In practical riding terms, this translates to an acceleration figure of 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds.

An extremely high level of equipment specification contributes to the incredible handling and comfort of the new Rocket 3 R and GT.  This includes high-spec adjustable Showa front and rear suspension setups, and a cutting-edge Brembo brakes setup with the highest available specification Brembo Stylema® calipers to deliver an incredible braking performance and immediate response.  The mass optimized aluminum frame of the new Rocket 3 lineup is an unwelded construction that has premium cast and forged components, making the frame lighter and contributing to a massive 88.18 lb weight saving compared to the predecessor Rocket.  In addition, optimized cornering ABS and traction control, which is supported by an Inertial Measurement Unit developed with Continental, provide an enhanced level of riding stability to ensure optimum brake force, optimized slip rate, and torque control that improves both straight line and cornering, acceleration and braking.
