Triumph Motorcycles India has announced the start of the deliveries of its flagship motorcycle - the 2020 Rocket 3 R. The company claims to have received a high demand for the vehicle, and the first batch of 40 Rocket 3 R motorcycles are already sold out.
The Triumph Rocket 3 was launched in India in December last year at INR 18,00,000* (ex-showroom). The latest iteration of the Triumph Rocket 3 is INR 2 lakh more affordable than its predecessor. Internationally, the 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 is available in two variants – R (Roadster) and GT (Grand Tourer). The Indian market, however, only gets the R (Roadster) version.
In India, the 2020 Triumph Rocket 3 R is available in two colour options – Korosi Red and Phantom Black. The first set of motorcycles will be delivered to their respective owners in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Kochi. The second batch of the motorcycles will be delivered in February and March.

We’ve had an astounding demand to bring the product in the country and an even amplified response to the bookings. I’m glad to say that the first batch of 40 Rocket 3Rs- that are coming to India have been sold out.
