2011 Triumph Rocket III Roadster

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 2,297cc 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.

Choose the Rocket III Touring and enjoy a mile-munching custom touring motorcycle with a unique character and charisma. Suspension has been tuned to achieve high levels of comfort without compromising control, while the with 180mm rear tyre and 16 inch wheels make for surprisingly agile handling. Alternatively, go for the Rocket III Roadster which transcends pure cruisers as the ultimate muscle streetfighter. Maximum power is up, and torque is up - to say nothing of the hairs on the back of your neck.

 

2.3 litres. 221Nm of torque. Blacked out. Blinged up. Streetfighting cruiser. Hard.

The Rocket III Roadster is not normal, it is very, very special.

No other motorcycle on the planet comes close to delivering the tree-pulling levels of torque that comes as standard with the turbine-like triple.

Twist and go. Sounds great, stops great. Standard ABS. Classic streetfighter looks. Are you 'bad' enough for the Rocket III Roadster?


Triumph Rocket III Roadster

It may sound like a cliche, but Triumph's Rocket III Roadster truly is a unique motorcycle with massive presence and a legendary powerplant.

With its 2,294cc three-cylinder engine, the Rocket III Roadster is home to the worldfs 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.

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.

2011 Triumph Rocket III Roadster Features and Benefits

The engine. What an engine. With 2,294cc of pure muscle delivering 146bhp at 5,750 rpm and 221Nm the Roadster accelerates like nothing else. Smooth and balanced with minimal torque reaction.

Of course, such an engine requires a quality chassis and the Rocket III Roadster doesn’t disappoint. High quality chassis components include 43mm upside down forks and standard anti-lock brakes, while the Roadster’s ergonomics have been developed to put the rider in total control.

As you’d expect from a top-of-the-range machine, the Rocket III Roadster features a comprehensive instrumentation package, delivered neatly in the classic twin clock design.

Engine

The Rocket III Roadster features the most powerful version yet of the incomparable 2.3 litre, in-line, water cooled, triple. With 146bhp at 5750rpm, the Rocket III Roadster is the most powerful model in Triumph’s range – but it’s the massive torque that really separates the Rocket III Roadster from the rest. With 194Nm, more than any other motorcycle on the market, the Rocket III Roadster accelerates unlike nothing else. But despite its size, the engine is incredibly smooth as the balance, input and rear drive shaft contra-rotate against the crankshaft, which makes for minimal torque reaction.


Brakes

The Rocket III Roadster features a sophisticated anti-lock braking system that makes 100 calculations each second to ensure the rider retains full control under extreme braking. Up front, the twin four-piston calipers are mated to 320mm floating discs to deliver the sort of stopping power you’d expect from a high-performance bike. The rear brake, developed especially by Brembo, is a single twin piston caliper and 316mm disc.


Suspension

Menacingly blacked out 43mm upside down forks offer precise steering while all-new twin shock absorbers at the rear provide a comfortable and composed ride one-up or two. Combined with the mid-mounted controls and revised ergonomics, the Rocket III Roadster offers the sportiest ride of any motorcycle to proudly display the Rocket III badge.


Black Finishes

Two menacing black finishes make the Roadster the meanest looking Rocket III yet. The motorcycle is available in sparkling Phantom Black or a minimalist Matt Black option, with the stripped down, ready for action look enhanced with some equally shadowy components. From the Roadster’s 2.3 litre heart to the 43mm forks up front, the blacked out components of the Rocket III Roadster ooze classic streetfighter aggression.


Chassis

In sparkling Phantom Black or menacing Matt, the Rocket III Roadster oozes menace and quality in equal dozes. The chassis is a tubular steel twin-spine design using the engine as a stressed member for maximum stiffness and control. New ergonomics place the rider in an ideal position to push the bike effortlessly into corners, while the blacked out components perfectly match the aggressive streetfighter styling and ensure the Roadster looks as good as it goes.
