2024 Triumph Rocket 3 storms into Australia

A storm is coming in the form of two new Triumph Rocket 3’s, the R and GT. Due to arrive in Australian dealerships in April, the former will be priced from $38,890, while the latter hits the road from $39,890, both ride away.

Twenty years after the first Rocket III burst onto the motorcycle scene as the ultimate muscle roadster, a new generation has been revealed, delivering more performance, better handling and a dark, moody colour scheme. It even has a new name, the Storm, to match its muscular style and spectacular riding experience.

Featuring the world’s largest production motorcycle engine, with a capacity of 2458cc, the new Rocket 3 Storm R and GT gain 11kW peak power, now delivering a massive 134kW at 7000rpm. Torque has also been increased by 4Nm, reaching a new peak of 225Nm at a low 4000rpm.

This flat, rich torque curve with maximum torque all the way through the mid-range gives explosive acceleration and effortless response in any gear.

The Rocket’s 16-inch rear and 17-inch front wheels have been updated with a sportier ten-spoke cast aluminium design, reducing unsprung mass. This reduction has a positive impact on steering response while on the move, improving the Rocket’s already impressive agility.

The strong and lightweight aluminium frame, first introduced in 2019, uses cast and forged elements for an exceptional torque-to-weight ratio. The large 18-litre tank features the new Storm name, and each model has three distinctive two-tone colour options.

The R is available in Carnival Red with Sapphire Black, Satin Pacific Blue with Matt Sapphire Black and Sapphire Black with Granite.

The GT is available in the same colours, but the split of the tank is reversed, providing a distinctive, high impact look and consistent colour choice across both models. The Rocket 3 Storm also comes with high-quality black finishes throughout. Also new for 2024 is liquid cooling, low emissions and excellent fuel efficiency.

“By listening to feedback from our customers, we know they love the Rocket’s muscular presence and heart-stopping performance. We also know that riders desire even more,” Triumph CCO Paul Stroud said.

“That’s why the new Rocket 3 Storm R and GT have been given an impressive power and torque increase, even greater agility and an even darker, moodier style and presence on the road.”

With more than 50 genuine accessories to add comfort, practicality, style and security, riders can customise their Rocket to make it truly bespoke, all of which comes with the same 2-year unlimited kilometre warranty as the bikes.

Customers can find out more at TriumphMotorcycles.com.au or place an order with their local Triumph dealer.
