ROCKET III ROADSTER
The ultimate in big capacity thrills.
The world’s ultimate motorcycle Roadster moves out of pure cruiser territory and transcends into that of the ultimate muscle streetfighter with the new Rocket III Roadster.
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 2,297 cubic-centimeter powerplant. Maximum power has increased over the outgoing Rocket III, with torque up by 15 percent to a mighty 163 foot-pounds.
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.
