It may sound like a cliché, but Triumph’s
Rocket III Roadster truly is a unique motorcycle with
presence and a legendary powerplant.
With its 2,294cc three-cylinder engine, the Rocket
III Roadster is home to the world’s largest
motorcycle engine. Delivering a 221Nm wallop of torque
at just 2750rpm, the Rocket III Roadster
delivers a riding experience unmatched by anything
else on two wheels.
Although featuring in Triumph’s Cruiser range,
the Rocket III Roadster transcends genres. With its
midmounted pegs and relatively upright riding position,
the Roadster takes on a streetfighter stance and
delivers an attitude-laden ride that every motorcyclist
should experience at least once in their
two-wheeled career. Shrinking violets need not apply.
The ergonomics ensure that the Roadster delivers
a completely different riding experience to any other
Rocket IIIs and one that is easier to hustle through
the corners. With a plush seat for both rider and
pillion, and a more comfortable and controllable rear
suspension, the Rocket III Roadster is capable
of covering long distances with aplomb.
As you would expect from a flagship model, the Rocket
III Roadster comes highly equipped
as standard, with a comprehensive instrumentation
including fuel gauge, gear selection indicator
and clock, 43mm upside down front forks, adjustable
rear suspension, low maintenance shaft drive
and sophisticated anti lock brakes as standard.
Up front, the Rocket III Roadster sports Triumph’s
trademark twin headlights to make this imposing
motorcycle even more striking, while the components
carefully balance black and chrome to create
an aggressive stripped down look.
For 2011, the Rocket III Roadster comes in two new
special colour options. In addition to the popular
metallic Phantom Black comes in two flamboyant colour
schemes: Phantom Red Haze and Phantom
Blue Haze. These are hand painted in Triumph’s
Hinckley factory and contain high sparkle content
which create an impression of incredible depth in
sunlight, transforming from near black to a vibrant
red or blue.
