Triumph Rocket 3 Storm

Its been 20 years since the Rocket 3 was launched, bringing some major muscle power to the Triumph range. Obviously, once you have staked your claim with the world’s biggest production motorcycle engine, the only way onwards is more! So the Rocket 3 Storm’s motor has been given a session on the dyno to extract some more horses – an extra 15hp to be exact, making it the most powerful bike in the range – and a small boost in torque, which peaks at 4000rpm. A high-revving screamer this is not.

The Storm also gains new lighter-weight 10-spoke wheels which are said to improve handing and make the bike more nimble, or at least as nimble as a 300kg-plus motorcycle can be. It comes in R or GT trim guises, the former a gargantuan naked starting at £23,195 and the latter a more laid-back cruiser with higher bars and a more forgiving pillion perch for an extra £700.
