Triumph Motorcycles Launches Limited Edition Rocket X In India
The iconic Triumph Rocket III power cruiser has completed 10 years since it first went into production in the year 2004. To celebrate the milestone, Triumph Motorcycles has launched a limited edition version of the Rocket III, namely the Rocket X. The Rocket X is adorned by a custom Jet Black paint scheme which has been done by the world famous paint specialists, 8 Ball. The gloss black paintjob on the fuel tank is complemented by a grinded polished metal stripe to further enhance the bike’s theme. The motorcycle’s overall paintjob involves a painstakingly long and complicated process.
This model is only limited to 500 units, with 15 units allocated for India and it has been priced at Rs. 22.21 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The unique feature of the Rocket X is the side panel badging which has a number for each of the 500 units.
The twin-skinned black exhaust system is coated with high temperature resistance paint. A black shroud for the chrome ringed instrument cluster along with black coloured handlebars, gear levers and brake levers, makes the Rocket X stand out when compared with the Rocket III. Even the signature 5-spoke aluminium alloy wheels have been painted black, but they get a silver coloured pinstripe which is done by hand (imagine that). The Rocket X badging on the oil tank has been machined from a billet of solid aluminium using a CNC milling machine to add an exquisite premium finish to the same.
The Rocket X is powered by the same engine which is found on the motorcycle it is based on. The 2294cc three-cylinder engine makes a maximum power of 148 PS at 5750 RPM and a massive 221 Nm of torque at just 2750 RPM. This engine makes the Rocket X feature the world’s largest production engine for motorcycles at the moment, further adding to the revelation of this model.
So go ahead and book the Rocket X before others can get their hands on this unique masterpiece of a cruiser.
