The British Invasion has begun !
   Welcome to the biggest and most powerful motorcycle ever produced!
 
ROCKET lll
 

MADE IN ENGLAND....
Just a few short years ago a cruiser with the sheer performance of the Rocket III would have been an impossible daydream, an engineer's 'what if. . .
The Rocket III is a whirling, mechanised cyclone of power. Its three fuel-injected cylinders displace a monstrous 2,294cc and pump out 147lb-ft of torque. That amazing output is fed to the giant 240-section rear tyre via a five-speed gearbox and shaft drive, while the massively strong steel frame, upside-down forks and Daytona 955i spec four-piston brake calipers elementally contain the Rocket III's potential.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

Rocket III is in possession of fine balance. Of course it demands respect on all levels but it remains a truly useable machine, and will tour highways, cruise streets and hustle turns with effortless ability. The Rocket III may be the largest capacity production motorcycle in the world but it's designed to be ridden.

True individuality is rare and the Rocket III has forwever defined a complete generation of motorcycles. Everything about it is special. Its muscular performance, stunning looks, attention to detail and monumental presence are simply unique.

Which means the Rocket III isn't just a special motorcycle. It's a truly extraordinary one.

2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster
Tested by Alan Dowds

Reviewed by one of the most experienced from SuperBike Magazine. Alan Dowds has ridden almost every major motorcycle built in the last 25 years, as well as MotoGP and WSB race bikes.
We still not sure of everything that the Scottish man says but we think he likes it. No surprise.

147 ft.-lbs Take the all-new motor, for example (left). Triumph has long been known for its innovative three-cylinder designs, but the DOHC liquid-cooled engine breaks new ground. Each piston measures over 4 inches across-the same as a Dodge Viper-giving each cylinder more displacement than an entire GSXR-750.
Triumph claims 147 ft.-lbs. of torque at 2,500 RPM and 140HP at 5,750 RPM for the oversquare fuel-injected mill. All this power should give the 704-pound (dry) juggernaut a 0-60 time of around 2.8 seconds, and a 0-100 time of just over 7 seconds.Power is laid down through a five-speed gearbox, shaft drive (a first for Triumph) and an impressive 240/50-16 rear tire.Stopping the beast are twin 320mm discs and four-piston calipers from the firm's Daytona 955i sportbike in the front, and a 316mm disk with a twin-piston caliper out back.
Cruiser-style ergos should make this performance easy to handle. Seat height is set at a surprisingly low 29.1 inches, and the reach to the forward-mount footpegs and pullback handlebars is said to be no greater than the 800cc Bonneville America.
