Triumph Rocket III Touring

Combining classic touring cruiser style with the awesome performance of the legendary 2.3 litre
Rocket III engine, the Rocket III Touring has been designed specifically for riders who demand serious long haul capabilities.

With this in mind, Triumph has endowed the 2011 Rocket III Touring with its advanced anti-lock
braking system for the first time, making this range-topping tourer an even more attractive proposition.

At the heart of the Rocket III Touring is Triumph’s iconic 2,294cc triple, which has been tuned
specifically for the needs of the touring rider. The engine delivers a mighty 203Nm of torque through
the low maintenance shaft drive system at just 2000rpm, making overtaking in any gear safe and
effortless, even when fully laden with passenger and luggage.

The Rocket III Touringfs chassis has also been developed specifically for its intended purpose and helps deliver a surprisingly nimble ride, thanks to the low centre of gravity, 16h 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 eday longf capability. The finely tuned suspension has been developed with comfort and control in mind, while 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. Accessories include
alternative touring screens, sissy bars, racks and auxiliary lamps, as well as a host of chrome and
leather items to make this already distinctive motorcycle even more striking.

The 2011 Triumph Rocket III Touring comes in two classic colour options: metallic Phantom Black
with hand painted silver coach lining or a two-tone Phantom Black with Crystal White infills.

2011 Triumph Rocket III Touring Features and Benefits

Rocket III Touring – Triumph’s 2.3 litre tourer. King of the cruisers.

Over 15,000 sold since its memorable introduction. Mile after mile is eaten up by this beautiful machine. Designed with touring in mind. Powerful, precise, comfortable and well equipped. One up or two. No one will miss you arriving.

Engine

The Rocket III Touring shares the same engine platform as the Rocket III. Its increased torque at low speeds means that even two-up and fully laden it will accelerate effortlessly for easy overtaking. The engine management system uses sensors to determine the correct fuelling and ignition and tailors the torque curve for each gear ratio. As a result the Rocket III Touring responds quickly, cleanly and strongly at any speed, in any gear.


Seat

The seat has the generous proportion of being 18” wide. The three layer construction with taped seams ensures that water is kept out!


Hard Panniers

The colour-matched, hard panniers come as standard and are lockable using the ignition key. They are quick to detach via two quarter-turn fasteners. They have been designed to be free-standing, are fully sealed and water resistant.


Footboards

Teardrop shaped, chromed aluminium castings with removable wear plates, spring mounted with an anti rattle pivot and rubber down stops.


Screen

A quick release screen comes as standard with great care paid to the details: The polished stainless steel mechanism and unique spring-loaded mounting bobbins lock the screen solidly in place, while lower air deflectors work with the main ‘blade’ of the screen to deflect turbulence.
