Re: New Rocket III?

I'd be interested in a few years when the used prices come down. Had a test ride on the current model and was impressed with it.

Re: New Rocket III?

Drove the old version, great craic just rolling on the throttle, heaps of torque, not what id go for at the mo but wouldnt rule one out, a mate of mine has done a lot of touring on one and loves it, big tourer/cruiser for easy long distance spins imo.

A certain member has done that with the previous model. He might have started this thread

Dunno, for me a few years old Honda Rune / Valkyrie would do the big cruiser thing for a lot less money.

Re: New Rocket III?

Triumph Dublin say limited edition "Triumph Factory Custom" to be released later this year, no official spec but rumoured to be 2.5L 180hp, for a snip at €30-35K.

"Entry level" model then with less power and less cost will follow later.

They're taking booking deposits..

In fairness only if I won the lotto and had a holiday home in Arizona but then it probably wouldn’t make it between petrol stations..back to the drawing board.

Re: New Rocket III?

I’d say for drag racing (without wheelying off the line with all that weight) it has to be quick.

Did it loose the rider in that last pic?
