Cruiser style. Rocket performance.

The Rocket III Classic is a real cruising motorcycle with a firm focus on rider and pillion comfort. It-s aimed squarely at those who prefer a more laid back approach to motorcycling and features a relaxed riding position with forward set footboards, pull-back handlebars and a supremely comfortable, stitched touring seat as standard. The 2.3 liter three-cylinder engine offers incredible levels of flexibility, for effortless riding whether two-up, fully loaded with luggage or solo, while the sophisticated fuel injection feeds in power seamlessly, with controlled acceleration on tap at the twist of a throttle

Triumph offer an enormous range of genuine accessories for the Rocket III including the new patented adjustable rider backrest.

The Cruiser Range – Performance and looks – no compromise. Triumph cruisers deliver performance with a balance that revels in every sweeping curve. Powered by torquey twin and triple engines that feel and sound like no other.

Individual bikes for riders with an individual spirit – covered in chrome and infused with Triumph-s original and authentic styling, they are ready for you to customize with Genuine Triumph Accessories.

FEATURES:

Engine

The incredible 2.3 liter, in-line, water cooled, triple cylinder engine means that even two-up the Rocket III accelerates incredibly hard without obvious effort. 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.

Transmission

Shaft drive is ideally suited to dealing with such a strong production engine and gives the added benefit of being highly durable and virtually maintenance free.

The Rocket III-s front brakes – twin four-piston calipers mated with 320mm floating discs – are built to sports bike specification and provide awesome stopping power. The rear brake, developed especially by Brembo, is a single twin piston caliper and 316mm disc.

Fueling

Twin butterfly valves for each throttle body are used to give precise control over the engine and this set-up allows the ECU to vary the mixture flow and ignition map dependent on gear selected and road speed. The torque curve is thus tailored specifically for each gear ratio. And the result is impressive – over 90% of the engine-s prodigious torque output is available at just 2000rpm, giving incredible levels of flexibility and making the five-speed gearbox almost redundant.

Suspension

The Rocket III-s chassis is something quite special and centers on a large tubular steel twin-spine frame, which houses the motor, while 43mm upside down forks and spring preload adjustable twin rear shocks, built specifically for the Rocket III, add control, composure and supple compliance.
