Triumph Motorcycles will next month release its 2024 Rocket 3 range in Australia, benefiting from power-boosting upgrades and increased standard equipment.

Now carrying the nameplate of ‘Storm’, the Rocket 3 is available in two variants, the Storm R and Storm GT. These replace the outgoing R and GT versions that first launched in 2019.

The new Rocket 3 Storm R is priced from $38,890 rideaway, while the Rocket 3 Storm GT comes at a $1000 premium at $39,890.

The bike’s 2458cc longitudinal triple-cylinder engine produces 11kW more power than its predecessor, now delivering 134kW at 7000rpm. Torque has also been increased by 4Nm, to 225Nm at 4000rpm.

A Showa monoshock and piggy-back reservoir, fully adjustable for rebound and compression damping plus preload suspends the rear. The forks are 47mm Showas, adjustable for rebound and compression damping.

Each model also gets its own dedicated seating set-up, each with premium black-painted cast aluminium seat finishes. The Rocket 3 Storm R has a roadster rider and pillion seat with a 773mm seat height, while the GT has a sculpted touring rider seat with a more generously padded pillion seat and an adjustable pillion backrest. The seat height for the GT is 750mm.

The biggest difference between the two models is the footpeg positions. The R has mid-foot controls, with two settings that offer 15mm of vertical adjustment, while the GT has feet forward foot controls giving a laid-back custom bike feel, with three horizontal position settings offering 50mm of adjustment, both offer have blacked out retractable pillion pegs.

The Rocket R’s roadster rider position and handlebar placement is more sporting while the GT has a slightly more swept back set-up with a 125mm difference in grip position versus the R, for a more upright riding position.

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.
