Good Lord, this is a massive looking bike. But she's surprisingly spry at around 650 lbs dry. Well, relatively spry... 😁

I can't decide if I like how she looks.... In a couple of those snaps, her ergos look tough - long reach to the bars and feet forward with knees splayed.

But man, that is tree stump-pulling power!

Well, you always want more, don’t you? That’s how Triumph Chief Engineer Stuart Wood justifies the world’s biggest-engined production motorcycle, and that’s what the new Rocket 3 wants to deliver. From the 2294 cubic centimeters of the original Rocket to 2458 cc, now there are three 4.3-inch pistons producing a claimed 163 lb-ft. of torque and 167 horses at 6000 rpm, and that’s what it’s all about.

Also more lightness; Triumph says the new Rocket’s 88 pounds lighter than the outgoing model. It definitely looks way more svelte than the old bike, and the new seamless gas tank doesn’t hurt in the looks department. Neither do the brushed alloy intake and hydroformed exhaust header balancing the left and right sides of that big engine, totally reminiscent of a Supermarine Spitfire, or any of the other tasteful upscale touches.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Review
Your R in red ($21,900) gets mid-mount foot controls, an inch-higher seat and lower handlebar. The GT ($22,600) gets forward-mount pegs, a higher pullback bar, adjustable backrest and slightly bigger windscreen. Footpegs, handlebars and seats are swappable between the two bikes.

Frankly the power claims seem somewhat exaggerated as we rocket along a few long straights leading to the top of Tenerife’s volcano; either that or the lowish-revving Rocket’s just sneaky fast. Rolling power all the way on in the lower gears definitely brings on rapid acceleration, but not quite the kind that tunnels your vision and makes you involuntarily roll back out of it like I expected. Reducing Triumph’s claim 11% to convert from crankshaft to rear-tire torque (it’s a shaft final drive), we should have 145 pound-feet. My butt dyno puts it at maybe 135-ish. We’ll just have to wait and see when we get our hands on a test unit ASAP, and I’ll humbly apologize as needed.


2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Review

Not that it matters unless you’re planning on taking your Rocket to the track, really. On the road, there’s always more than enough juice. From 2.5 liters, I guess I expected it to start flowing at 2000 rpm or less, but it’s really not till 2500 that the big engine starts getting serious. It’ll pull cleanly from 1500 rpm, but it feels like you’re lugging it. By 3000 rpm you need to be holding on tight, and from 5000 to the 6500-rpm redline, you really are compressing scenery. Triumph claims 165 horses at 6000 rpm; I’m going to estimate 145 at the rear tire.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 torque
The “closest competition” we’re referring to would be the Ducati XDiavel.

The quality of the power is what it’s all about. Long-legged like a fine touring car, we’re serving up 74 mph at around 3200 rpm. That’s like 23 mph for each 1k rpm. Set the standard cruise control and enjoy the relaxed, soles forward ride on the GT. The R’s lower bar might be a bit aggressive for long days, but then that’s totally dependent on how fast you “tour.”

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 horsepower

When you hit the curves, you can either overstimulate the excellent new spline-cut six-speed gearbox and ride like a maniac, or just leave it in a higher gear and roll the throttle off and on: Plan B may be quicker – but maybe not if you spring for the optional up/down quickshifter. The old Rocket’s sheer size made it look like a cartoon version of itself. The new bike is still big, but doesn’t look or feel as intimidating as the old one; 88 pounds is a huge weight loss. Triumph says the new R weighs 642 pounds dry, and we’re also 0.7 inches shorter of wheelbase at 66 inches.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Engine
The world’s biggest production motorcycle engine gets a bunch of mass-optimized performance enhancements; including a new crankcase assembly, new lubrication system comprising dry sump and integral oil tank, and new balancer shafts – which together are said to reduce engine weight by 40 pounds over the previous generation.

Chief Engineer Wood, who was of course hanging right with the group, is proud of Triumph’s in-house fuel-injection programming, ahh, program, and as usual the Rocket’s fueling seems spot-on even in Euro 5 trim. In fact, he says it wasn’t even that tough to exceed Euro 5. What you can feel if you’re intent on being critical is a smidge of drivetrain lash as you’re on and off the gas, but not enough to upset the proceedings.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Review

Triumph seems incapable of building a motorcycle that doesn’t also handle really well, and the Rocket got the usual treatment in development. A huge 47mm fully-adjustable inverted fork carries the gigantic front tire, and a fully adjustable Showa shock with a manual preload adjuster is tucked just out of sight under the left sidecover. Putting a 240-section tire on back always makes for unique handling, but the front custom-built Avon’s well-matched to the rear, and restores normal service to the Triumph’s curvy road manners. For being so large, the Rocket goes around corners very well. Drag that 300mm rear disc to tighten your line, and please be careful not to let the pavement yank your heel off the footpeg followed by the rest of your leg. Ouch. I’m still hobbling.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 GT Review

That happened to me on the GT, with its forward footpegs and higher handlebar, in a right-hand corner, and to a fellow journalist’s left leg in a left. Most of us preferred the R’s midset pegs for sporty riding, and felt like if the R had the GT’s higher handlebar it would be just about perfect. Luckily, those pieces are swappable between R and GT.

Faced with the need to control that much power and weight, the Rocket’s Showa suspension components may not be Triumph’s best effort at bump absorption. Serial bumps can start filtering through to the editorial fundament, and braking hard over bumps sometimes has the fork bouncy enough to make you overshoot where you wanted to turn. Possibly a simple matter of taking the time to twist an adjuster or two, but modern motojournalism is more concerned with photo- and videography.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 TFT display
Now you’ve got an IMU speaking to your four usual ride modes with lean-sensing ABS and TC, the ability to control your GoPro on the fly, as well as Bluetooth up to your phone to chatter away and have turn-by-turn directions displayed on the new all-color TFT via Google maps instead of the kind of proprietary maps that never seem to be as good. Why reinvent the wheel? (The Bluetooth module is optional equipment.)

Naturally they moved the Rocket into the 21st century while they were at it, with a new Inertial Measurement Unit developed with Continental controlling the lean-sensitive ABS and traction control systems, both of which get their directions from whichever mode you select: Rain, Road, Sport, or the customizable Rider. Mode selection also affects power delivery. Sport really does prod the world’s biggest production engine along, and knowing the safety systems are standing watch only encourages you to flog the big Rocket harder than you should. What could go wrong? The other side of Tenerife was chilly and damp, and those rider aids are reassuring things to have when riding expensive, borrowed motorcycles. Probably even more if you own it. Shudder the thought…

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Brakes

The brakes being aided by the IMU are as upscale as everything else, the latest in Brembo Stylema calipers up front, which, in combination with the fat contact patch on the front Avon, really can stand the Rocket on its nose.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 GT
Rocket 3 R’s wheels feature a blacked-out finish, while the Rocket 3 GT model pictured here goes one step further, with exposed machining on rim and spokes. Both models get Avon Cobra Chrome radials developed especially for the new Rocket 3: a 240/50 16-inch rear and 150/80 17 front. GT seat is 29.5 inches high; R about an inch higher.

For just cruising along on the straight and narrow, the Rocket should prove sublime. The GT comes with a 29.5-inch high touring saddle and forward footpegs with three possible fore-and-aft adjustments, each an inch apart. The R’s mid-mount pegs adjust up and down between two locations 15mm apart. Another downside with the forward pegs is that they put your right ankle in close approximation to the exhaust pipe; even on a cool day on the volcano, I could feel a little bit of the big engine’s hot magma through my Aerostich and a pair of jeans. Again, footpegs are swappable between R and GT. As long as you’re going big, I’d suggest R pegs and optional quickshifter.

Aside from that, I see no reason why you shouldn’t be able to opt for the optional saddlebags and spend many happy moons touring to your heart’s content. That, or just sitting there eyeballing all the beautiful detail work Triumph’s put in here: the brushed aluminium this and that, the internally wired handlebars, the hand-painted stripes on the GT’s seamless fuel tank…

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 footpegs
The bifold passenger pegs meld right into the aluminum frame when folded up, and an optional seat cover sleeks things up for solo riding.

Natch, there are already over 50 accessories. I might go for the “Highway Inspiration” kit, which includes: Luggage rack, Sports panniers and mount kit, Triumph Shift Assist and Triumph TFT Connectivity System (the part that Bluetooths up your phone).

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Avon Tires
Even the Avon tyres got the custom detailing treatment.

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 4.75 gallon fuel tank
The 4.75-gallon tank, at Triumph’s claim of 32 mpg, should give you 152 miles of range. A little more wouldn’t be bad…

There it is. Go big or go home. Things change, alliances and power shifts. While the impeachment drama was playing out back in DC, the President of China was leaving the Tenerife Abama Ritz-Carlton the day we arrived under tight security, and Putin had been lurking on the island at the same time: Putin on the Ritz, Morgan Gales observed, and we sang the Young Frankenstein tune from then forward. I saw zero about any of it in the US press. Probably just a coincidence?

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 Review
Pop off the seat and there’s your USB; there’s also keyless ignition and fork lock…

If bigger really is better, and I’m still not convinced, it makes you wonder why Triumph, only back in business since the ’90s, has the balls to build a bike like this and none of the other superpowers have ever bothered to climb out of the big V-Twin rut? I don’t know that they can get much bigger than 2000 cc?

2020 Triumph Rocket 3 headlight

Dunno, but those bug eye headlights (lighting is now full LED) take us right back to the original Speed Triple and the real beginning of modern Triumph’s audacious success. Seeing those eyeballs on the Rocket 3 is like seeing a good old trouble-maker friend decades later. Same face but a bit pudgier, same twinkle in the eye, same thumb in the eyeball of authority but now better manicured. This new Rocket 3, to me, almost feels more like a mature Speed Triple than it does the old Rocket, and that is in no way a bad thing. Triumph strikes again.

Cycle World has their first ride review up. Take a gander and opine....

I will say that a bike losing so much weight from one iteration to the next is an extremely impressive feat of engineering. I wish all OEMs would try to make bikes lighter.


2020 Triumph Rocket 3 R And GT Review First Ride


“Rocket.” What pops into your head when that word registers in your cerebrum? If you’re reading this, you most likely think of speed and acceleration, delivered with a satisfying kind of violence. If you were to ride a rocket, it would most likely be terrifying. Noise, vibration, flames. On an overcast day on the volcanic island of Tenerife, Spain, I rode a Rocket, and there was no terror, violence, or flames. There was, however, speed, acceleration, and satisfaction. This is the 2020 Rocket 3 R.


What’s New For The 2020 Rocket 3?

Totally redesigned for 2020, Triumph’s Rocket 3 R bumps up the cubes, firmly cementing it as the largest-displacement production motorcycle in the world—not that it had any competition before. With the engine change comes a new chassis, and more modern and aggressive styling. Gone are the traditional American cruiser lines with fat, swooping fenders and massive chromed exhaust pipe. This new Rocket is truly a roadster, sleeker and more refined but still commanding in presence. Fit and finish is improved, especially on the engine. No longer does the longitudinally mounted engine look as if it was ripped from a tractor and wedged into a cruiser. The Rocket is easy on the eyes, and many an “Ooh, that’s nice” was heard uttered by passersby at the launch’s multiple stops.

So it looks great, but the Rocket 3 has always hung its hat on massive power and torque thrusting the rider forward with authority. Its ferocity is sort of a motorcycling urban legend—it was quick for a cruiser-style motorcycle. But was it really a beast? It certainly has beastly qualities. Now with an all-new 2,458cc triple (Triumph rounds up to 2,500cc in marketing materials; that’s only a 2 percent number fudge, so I’m good with it), claimed horsepower is 165—an impressive number. But the torque number is where eyeballs bulge with surprise: 163 pound-feet. Even with a claimed dry weight of 642 pounds, that much oomph seems ludicrous. Monstrous really.

Not only were the displacement and power increased, but Triumph shaved—no, hacked—weight from the engine. The new crankcase is 24 pounds lighter; new balancer shafts cut 8 more pounds; and a new dry-sump lubrication system with an integrated oil tank removes nearly another 9 pounds from the engine.

The frame is 50 percent lighter—an all-new aluminum design that is constructed of cast and forged components. Not only has the mass been reduced, but the physical size has also shrunk as the frame now employs a backbone-type layout rather than the old twin-spar configuration. It is also shorter in both length and height. To the left and the right of the headstock integrated air intakes feed Rocket’s airbox, and allow for some extra growl to reach the rider.

In all, the 2020 Rocket 3 R carries 88 pounds less than the previous model.
Fully adjustable Showa suspension complements the new frame. A 47mm fork is adjustable for compression and rebound while a piggyback monoshock adjustable for compression, rebound, and preload controls the movement of the single-sided, shaft drive-integrated swingarm. At the ends of both are all-new multi-spoke aluminum wheels: 17 inches in diameter in the front, and 16 at the rear. When asked why not a 17-inch wheel at the rear, Rocket’s chief engineer said a 17-inch wheel didn’t give the right look and stance. But he was adamant to point out that performance was not compromised for the sake of style. And the fat Avon Cobra Chrome tires specially developed for Triumph are imposing, with a tall sidewall that gives the Rocket a musclebound look.

A stripped-down roadster appearance showcases the centerpiece of the Rocket 3: the engine. On the right side, three hydroformed and hand-welded exhaust headers are masterfully crafted and finished. Tucked neatly underneath the bike, a triple outlet exhaust (two in the right, one on the left) finishes the exhaust system with a more aggressive, short style that speaks to a performance motorcycle rather than a cruiser. Stubby fenders and high rear subframe also are sleek and modern. One carryover, however, is the iconic twin headlight setup—now LED with Triumph’s signature shaped daytime running lights. Behind the lights sits a bright and easy-to-read color TFT dash. Each feature is well-finished and more polished than the next.

All of those features are second fiddle to the engine, and it’s a fiddle that can be tuned to suit the rider. The horsepower and torque numbers mentioned earlier are impressive, but with so much on tap Triumph has wisely equipped the Rocket 3 with a host of electronic aids to manage traction and stability. Using the illuminated and intuitive switch cubes on the left handlebar the rider can easily select Sport, Road, and Rain modes, each with their own throttle mapping and traction control settings. Dig a little deeper in the menu system to set up the rider mode that allows for independent adjustment of the TC (including the option for off) and throttle response for a personalized setting.

Personalization can be taken a step further in hard parts. While we spent most of the day riding the Rocket 3 R, the Rocket 3 GT was also on hand. Where the Rocket 3 R has a flat sporty handlebar and mid-ship pegs, the GT gets a swept-back and taller handlebar for a more upright seating position. Pegs on the GT are set forward and can be adjusted for reach fore and aft by 25mm. The roadster’s pegs can be lowered 15mm from the standard position. The GT also rocks a brushed aluminum backrest, heated grips, and cushier rider and pillion seats. Triumph was able to create two distinct rider ergonomic layouts from just a handful of parts. I’d personally mix and match for the ultimate setup. More on that later.

How Does The New Rocket 3 Ride?

I was able to test each of the ride modes as we ascended the volcanic center of Tenerife, moving from cool yet dry pavement to warm, grippy corners, and then into the wet and less maintained bends of the rainy side of the island. Right out the gate, I began with the Road mode. Even in this mode you feel the surplus of power and torque emanating from the big triple, but it’s not overwhelming. Fueling was spot-on without any hint of jerkiness, just smooth roll-on with authority.

Rocket 3

Gone is a less-than-refined feel on the Rocket 3 and with it goes a little bit of character.Triumph Motorcycles

Even so, pin the throttle and take a look at the speedo spin through numbers like the national debt clock and you get a sense of the quickness. The long 66-inch wheelbase and low 30.4-inch seat height combined with a fairly lax 27.9-degree rake and 5.31-inch trail launches and accelerates like, well, a rocket. It’s just too easy. Maybe. Turn the TC off and you will quickly find the rear tire overwhelmed by the torque, spinning easily at the drop of the hydraulic torque-assist clutch. And then a boiling, rolling spin-up after the shift to second followed squirmy chirp into third. Fun, no doubt, but ineffective. Modern engineering is your friend, just not the wild one in this instance.

Torque! The 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 R and GT have it in bucketfuls.Triumph Motorcycles

It goes like hell in a straight line, as one would expect, but when the road bends, that’s where the real surprise comes. Tipping into a corner takes little effort despite the bulbous 150mm front and 240mm rear tires. Cornering clearance is ample and stability is unshakable with a composed suspension action that followed the road well and doesn’t come unglued when the road is less than perfect. I did notice a bounce or chattery feel at very low rpm while turning that is imparted by the torque pulses of the engine, but this is an extreme case with the tach registering below 1,500 rpm. Coming out of the corner, a moderate amount of effort is needed to change your path and stand the bike up. This is one of the only times you will feel the 642 pound claimed dry weight. In short, it goes around the corner much better than a quarter-ton-plus, 2,500cc, fat-tired motorcycle should have a right to.

2020 Rocket 3 R

Hustling through the corners on the 2020 Rocket 3 R uncovers a finely tuned and balanced motorcycle despite its massive size.Triumph Motorcycles

With so much go on tap, the stop needs to be equally impressive, and a pair of Brembo M4.30 four-piston radial-mounted Stylema front calipers squeezing 320mm discs are epic in their ability to do so. The initial bite is quick and strong, and the power put through the lever is assertive with exceptional feedback. The Rocket 3 can stop much quicker than you would expect. Not once did I bump up against the lean-sensitive ABS in the front, but I did find it in the rear. The rear pedal is less than epic, bordering on disappointing. The power is there, but the feel and modulation is mushy and less communicative. When searching for the limits of the rear brake system, the ABS came on but without any drama or heavy pedal surging.

What’s Better, The Rocket 3 R Or GT?

After three-quarters of a day bounding to and fro on the Spanish island territory and swapping between the R and GT model, I was torn between the two in terms of comfort. The midship-mounted foot controls of the R gave more control and comfort, but the flatter handlebars had my 5-foot-10-inch frame feeling stretched over the tank. The GT’s handlebar, on the other hand, was comfortable and allowed for easier steering inputs, but the forward controls scraped the pavement easier and had me dragging my heels. If I were buying, I’d get the R and put the GT bars on it. Best of both models.

2020 Rocket 3 R And GT Verdict
Excellent fit and finish, impressive performance and handling, and an imposing look all come together to make the Rocket 3 an impressive motorcycle—one with nary a flaw. And that is my biggest complaint. Triumph has constructed a motorcycle that is expected to be unhinged and bordering on unmanageable, or at least it should feel like it, but instead it’s easy as pie to ride. It’s phenomenal in its ability to accelerate and turn and stop. Would I give away any of the good for a little more character? Absolutely not, the Rocket 3 R and GT are exceptional motorcycles with a flaw of being too damn good.
