ATLANTA, GA – October 6, 2009 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Triumph Rocket III Roadster is the ultimate muscle streetfighter, with the biggest torque figures found on any production motorcycle.Coming in two black color options, metallic Phantom Black or Matte Black, the Rocket III Roadster is powered by an uprated version of Triumph’s iconic three-cylinder 2,294cc powerplant. Maximum power has increased with torque up 15% to a mighty 163ft.lbs.
Triumph’s sophisticated anti-lock braking system is fitted as standard to the Rocket III Roadster and the bike has received a long list of ergonomic and quality improvements over the previous Rocket III.
The new ergonomics give the Rocket III Roadster a completely different riding experience from its predecessors. The new footrests are further back, lower down and more inboard than on the Rocket III, creating a comfortable riding position which non-cruiser riders will feel at home with. The plush new seat sits the rider higher and further forward than before, giving a comfortable and natural leg position while reducing the reach to the handlebars. The result is a motorcycle that is easier to steer through corners than any other Rocket III variant.
New rear suspension units have been designed to offer a comfortable ride, while the main components take on a blacked-out appearance for that ‘bad boy’ image. Many components have been taken back to black, including the forks, yokes, radiator shroud and rear springs. New pipes, one on each side, are the final touches. These have been designed to release more power and torque and optimize the auditory experience.
