2024 Triumph Rocket 3 Storm Range Launched

The 2024 Triumph Rocket 3 Storm range has been launched, in both R and GT guises.

The Rocket 3 is famous for two things: One, it has the largest engine in production, and two, the engine’s massive torque will straighten your arms like a er… rocket. But make no mistake: Triumph has sold 18,000 Rocket 3’s since the remake in 2019.

And, Triumph knows that mo’ power is always better.

Here are the highlights of the 2024 Triumph Rocket 3 Storm range:
  • The 2,458 cc (yes, bigger than most cars in Malaysia), 3-cylinder powerplant now punches out 180 hp at 7,000 RPM and head-snapping 225 Nm of torque at 4,000 RPM.
  • That is a bump of 15 hp and 4 Nm.

  • Power is sent through a Torque Assist Clutch, the buyer can purchase the optional quickshifter.
  • The frame continues to be aluminium, which made its debut in 2019. Better to keep the weight down.
  • New, 10-spoke cast aluminium wheels to reduce unsprung weight by 2 kg. Reducing 2 kg is a lot when the wheels spin up, giving quicker handling as there’s less gyroscopic forces.

  • The front has massive Showa 47 mm forks, adjustable for rebound and compression damping.
  • The rear shock is a Showa RSU monoshock with piggyback reservoir.
  • Brembo Stylema calipers are up front, clamping on 320mm discs.
  • At the back, a Brembo M4.32 monobloc caliper grabs a huge 300mm disc (since the bike’s weight is rear biased).
  • Taming that power are rider aids like TC, ABS, and four power modes.
  • There are also lean-angle sensitive ABS, and well as optimized cornering traction control.
  • There is now Hill Hold, which prevents the motorcycle from rolling backward by applying the rear brake.
  • Cruise control comes as standard on both models, and you can activate it at the touch of a button and adjust it up or down in 1 mph increments.
  • All of the tech features should be easy to interact with via the full-color TFT display and five-way joystick.

  • Both R and GT variants deliver a blacked out, if not sinister, attitude.
  • The R has a sportier stance, with mid-mounted adjustable footpegs, while the R has forward footpegs and more laid-back riding position.
How much?

The 2024 Triumph Rocket 3 Storm R is USD 24,995 (RM 118,501.30) and Rocket 3 Storm GT is USD 28,995 (RM 137,465.29). Of course, prices in Malaysia will be much higher (along with everything else).

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
