2020 Rocket 3 GT & R
The 2020 Rocket 3 GT and Rocket 3 R both share the same engine, a 2,458cc inline triple that produces 165 HP and 163 lbs-ft of torque. Both motorcycles also both use the same 6-speed transmission that is hydraulically assisted due to the massive torque and power the engine outputs.
The major differences between the R and the GT are in riding position and general bike setup.
The GT is the much more touring friendly motorcycle, with handlebars that are wide and pulled back, forwards mounted pegs and foot controls, and a touring windshield to deflect air up and over the shoulders of the rider. It is also set to have a slightly more invasive ABS and stability control, as the GT is the bike for those wanting worry free long distance rides.
The R, on the other hand, is the power cruiser. It has wide handlebars but they are not pulled back nearly as much, mid mount pegs and foot controls, and only a small front cowling to break through the air. It is much more aggressive, with the ABS only kicking in if it detects imminent loss of control, and the stability control allows much more lean before starting to interfere.
The 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 GT starts at $22,600 US/$26,700 CDN. The 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 R starts at $21,900 US/$25,900 CDN.
