Triumph Rocket III Classic

New Model for 2006 - Rolling up alongside the Rocket III in 2006 is the new Rocket III Classic.

While the original model has won the hearts of the power-cruiser crowd the Rocket III Classic is aimed squarely at those who favour a more relaxed approach to riding.

Firmly focused on rider and pillion comfort, the Rocket III Classic comes with rider footboards, pull-back bars and a comfy stitched touring seat as standard. All subtle but significant touches that add to the bike's already impressive long haul abilities.

The incredible levels of flexibility offered by the Rocket's 2.3 litres, 147ft.lbf engine make for effortless riding whether two-up, fully-loaded with luggage, or solo. The sophisticated fuel-injection feeds in power seamlessly, with controlled acceleration on tap at the twist of a throttle, while maintenance-free shaft drive delivers forward motion to the rear rubber.

Good lock-to-lock movement, an incredibly light clutch and a low centre of gravity make low speed manoeuvring extremely easy, while the steering geometry and overall length give a securely planted feel. 43mm upside down forks and twin rear shocks; twin disc front brakes with four-piston calipers and single disc rear and generous ground clearance complete the package, giving added composure and supple compliance.

Two luxurious, two-tone paint schemes, coachlined by hand; a deep-chromed cam cover that contrasts handsomely with the black-finished engine and cone silencer end finishers add the final touches to what is already a distinctive and uniquely styled machine.
