The 2020 Triumph Rocket III has been spotted testing in an absolutely undisguised avatar which the possible launch of the bike anytime soon. The present version of the Rocket III cruiser is long-due for a major update since it has been almost unchanged ever since the year 2004. The motorcycle was previously phased out in Europe on account of not adhering to Euro-4 emission regulations.
However, clearly the next generation model is being worked on by Triumph and there are major upgrades including a bigger mono-shock which hints at a new frame for the bike. There is a beefier and more appealing look overall with chunky inverted forks accompanying a larger front suspension setup. There are Brembo brakes and ABS as well.
Other changes include a newly designed fuel tank and brand new twin-LED headlamps along with bar-end mirrors and the registration number plate and turn signal indicators integrated into the rear tyre hugger. The engine may be now 2500 cc as compared to 2293 cc at present and will adhere to the Euro-4 emission regulations. The engine may also adhere to even more stringent Euro-5 emission regulations which will be implemented in 2020. If the Triumph Rocket III does make it anytime soon, it will give the Ducati Diavel a run for its money indeed.
