2013 Triumph Rocket III Roadster Key Features

ENGINE
At the heart of the Rocket III Touring and Roadster is Triumph’s iconic 2,294cc triple. For The Rocket III Touring, the engine delivers a mighty 150 ft.lbs of torque through the low maintenance shaft drive system at just 2500rpm, making overtaking in any gear safe and effortless, even when fully laden with passenger and luggage. Triumph has also endowed the Rocket III Touring with its advanced anti-lock braking system, offering additional security for riders whatever the conditions.

Triumph’s Rocket III Roadster truly is a unique motorcycle with massive presence and a legendary powerplant delivering a 163 ft.lbs wallop of torque at just 2750rpm, the Rocket III Roadster delivers a riding experience unmatched by anything else on two wheels.

CHASSIS
The Rocket III Touring’s chassis has been developed specifically for its intended purpose and helps deliver a surprisingly nimble ride, thanks to the low centre of gravity, 16” wheels and 180 section rear tyre. Rider and passenger comfort is paramount with the Rocket III Touring. The well-appointed seat is constructed using two separate layers of cushioning of different densities, with the pillion also benefiting from an additional gel layer for supreme comfort and ‘day long’ capability.

The ergonomics of the Rocket III Roadster ensures that it 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 comfortable and controllable rear suspension, the Rocket III Roadster is capable of covering long distances with aplomb.

BRAKES
The Rocket III Touring and Rocket III Roadster both feature a sophisticated anti-lock braking system that makes 100 calculations each second to deliver maximum performance.

FEATURES
With the Rocket III Touring comfort and practicality are enhanced with the standard fitment of quick release screen and 36-litre panniers.The high specification continues with the adoption of an analogue fuel gauge and LCD clock and trip computer, all mounted alongside the speedometer in the stylish tank mounted chrome nacelle. Teardrop shaped rider and passenger footboards are also a standard feature, while a long list of optional accessories allows riders to create the Rocket III Touring they want.

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.
