Coming in two mean and moody black color options, metallic Phantom Black or an aggressive Matte Black alternative, the Rocket III Roadster is powered by an uprated version of Triumph’s iconic three-cylinder 2,297cc powerplant. Maximum power has increased over the outgoing Rocket III, with torque up by 15% to a mighty 163 ft.lbs.
Triumph’s sophisticated anti-lock braking system is fitted as standard to the Rocket III Roadster, the first time that an ABS system has been specified to the Rocket III platform.
New ergonomics give the Rocket III Roadster a completely different riding experience from its predecessors while new rear suspension units have been designed to offer a more comfortable and controlled ride than the previous Rocket III, while the main components take on a blacked-out appearance to reinforce the Rocket III’s ‘bad boy’ image. Many components have been taken back to black, including the forks, yokes and rear springs. New silencers, one on each side, are the final touches. These have been designed to release more power and torque and optimize the aural experience of the Triumph Rocket III Roadster.
With its iconic turbine-like 2.3 litre engine, the Rocket III delivers an unforgettable experience.
With its 2,294cc three-cylinder engine, the Rocket III Roadster is home to the worldfs largest production 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.
