Everything you’ve heard about the Triumph Rocket III is true. With sheer force of presence, the Rocket III uses the world’s largest production motorcycle engine to deliver a simply stunning riding experience unmatched on two wheels. The Triumph Rocket III: believe in the unbelievable.
With the world’s biggest production motorcycle engine the latest Rocket III Roadster builds on the huge performance of the original Rocket III but now with even more torque. The capacity of the Rocket III Roadster is huge, 2,294cc, and with a gut churning 221Nm at just 2,750rpm it has more torque at idle than most superbikes do at full chat. The latest engine is unrestricted thereby delivering its full strength in the first three gears giving it almighty punch. The three big cylinders are arranged length-ways along the bike. To tame the reaction of the massive torque, the crankshaft counter-rotates so the bike stays steady when the throttle’s blipped.
The Rocket III gives you low speed balance and beautifully neutral steering so when you’re faced with a twisty road you can be filled with confidence. The front end incorporates sportsbike-style upside down forks 43mm in diameter, so they’re strong enough to cope with all the forces a bike like this can deal out, and developed the big, tubular steel twin spine design to be strong and rigid enough to contain this powerhouse of a motor, whilst proving a great level of agility.
Few sights match the Rocket III Roadster’s visual impact. Instantly recognisable and guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever it’s parked, the Rocket III Roadster is the ultimate cruiser bike with a massive engine and triple chrome headers set against a blacked-out silhouette. Characteristic twin headlamps and chrome detailing add the finishing touches to its laid-back, brutal charm.
