Introducing the all-new Limited Edition Triumph Rocket 3 R Black and Rocket 3 GT Triple Black

POSTED: 09/03/2021

NEW ROCKET 3 R BLACK AND ROCKET 3 GT TRIPLE BLACK LIMITED EDITIONS: THE ULTIMATE MUSCLE ROADSTER NOW MEANER AND MOODIER

Meaner. Moodier. Muscle. The limited edition Rocket 3 R Black and Rocket 3 GT Triple Black takes all of the Rocket 3’s phenomenal performance and all of its class-leading handling and outstanding technology and creates two sophisticated new darker styles, adding a host of unique blacked-out detailing for an even more striking and dominant presence. With only 1000 of each limited edition available worldwide, the new Rocket 3 R Black and GT Triple Black add even more exclusivity, coming with a certificate of authenticity that carries the motorcycles unique VIN number. The Rocket 3 limited editions take the ultimate high-performance muscle roadster to a new level with an altogether meaner and moodier attitude.

The new limited edition Rocket 3 line-up comes in two stunning and sophisticated colour schemes. The Rocket 3 R Black, the ultimate muscle roadster, takes on a dark and moody style with a distinctive matt and gloss all-black paint scheme, with black tank badges and new ‘black’ branding. Alternatively the Rocket 3 GT Triple Black features a sophisticated dark style with a distinctive three-shade black paint scheme, while maintaining all of its laid-back and comfortable attitude.

Both of the new limited edition Rocket 3 R and GT have been enhanced by a unique beautiful range of blacked out components that add an even more aggressive and dominant style, with a beautiful carbon-fibre front mudguard fitted as standard. Their world leading 2,500cc engine comes fully blacked out, with unique black painted exhaust headers, heat shields and end caps. A dedicated crinkle black powder coated intake cover finishes off the blacked out engine style, and provides the new, limited edition Rockets with a meaner look and attitude. 

The list of blacked-out components continues across both motorcycles. On the front, the new Rockets are enriched with black painted mudguard mounts, black painted headlight bezels, fly screen finishers, radiator cowls and badging. Contributing to the new darker look and style are black anodised components, including fork lowers, yokes, risers and handlebar clamps, rider footrests, brake and gear pedals, heel guards and pillion footrests and hangers. The list of black anodised components continues with the rear frame forging, RSU rocker, swingarm guard, side stand, brake and clutch levers, and premium black anodised bar-end mirrors with machined detailing fitted as standard.

The new Rocket limited edition line-up’s 2,500cc triple engine delivers incredible performance. In fact, it’s not only the largest production motorcycle engine in the World, but it also delivers the world’s highest torque at 221Nm. Maximum torque arrives at 4,000rpm and is held constantly through the mid-range, giving unparalleled acceleration and effortless riding at any gear.
