I think you are referring to a different video, buddy. I watched the one that CD shared and I heard the presenter say that they couldnt call it since the bikes had different strengths and it would come down to an individual buyer's preference.

If you can share the video that clearly declared the Diavel to be the better bike between the two, that would be great.

Im pretty sure the Daytona has far outsold the old Rocket by a huge margin in India. I think Ive spotted one in the Cochin showroom, I'll ask them the next time I take my bike for service.

I should have clarified .... This video makes it clear - Diavel is more sporty, wild & a better bike overall "for CD's friends needs"

On the contrary, 44 teeth says that the Rocket 3 will hassle the Diavel in the corners. The comparison tests next year should be a lot of fun.

You forgot to type the entire sentence - In a straight line Diavel will eat this for lunch and dissapear - in corners Rocket 3 will "hassle" Diavel. Net Net - Diavel will still be faster

PS: Having said that - it should be really fun to take a ride on this monster as well

I didnt forget. Since you had only mentioned about the nimbleness of Diavel and its likely ability to leave the new Rocket 3 far behind in the twisties / winding roads, I, in turn, posted what 44 teeth had said on the same - that the Rocket 3 will hassle the Diavel in those conditions. From CD's post on the Bike World review, the Rocket 3 feels better than the Diavel in the corners. I havent seen that video yet. But surely these reviewers must be onto something for them to make such claims regarding the cornering ability of the Rocket 3, which is quite a testament to the engineering that has gone behind the motorcycle. So in the twisties, its probably going to be a lot closer than you assumed. Again, this can be validated only in proper back to back tests so lets see how the comparisons stack up next year.

Not too bad pricing I guess. I assumed it would be lot more. Isn't this still the biggest capacity production motorbike? That in itself is an USP

That is pretty competitive pricing, given that the base Diavel has an ex showroom price of Rs 17.7L. The European markets are expected to get deliveries starting from this month onwards but I havent heard any announcement yet on India deliveries.

Saw the Rocket 3R at the Triumph dealership in Gurgaon the other day, what a badass looking power cruiser.

Triumph Rocket 3 GT Coming To India Next Year.

Shoeb Farooq, Business Head - Triumph Motorcycles India confirmed that the new generation Triumph Rocket 3 GT will go on sale in the country in 2021.

We launched only the Rocket 3 R in India this year and now we are planning to include the GT, the touring variant in the Rocket range. Given the response to the R, we want to complete the portfolio. So the R would continue and the GT will also add on to the whole range of power cruisers.

I got to see the Rocket 3 at the Cochin showroom, I couldnt get a closer look since it was up against the glass and had a Sold sticker on it. That bike has a massive presence about it, to say the least. Just look at the comparison of the seats when you compare it side by side with the, admittedly slim, Street Triple 765 RS. It looks like just the sort of big, burly power cruiser that Triumph needed it to be.

Anyone have personal experience riding the Rocket 3?

Thinking of buying one later this year. It's either this or a car and I'm leaning towards this.
