Triumph Launched 2010 Rocket III Roadster
According to its manufacturer, the new bike brings the biggest torque figure found on any production motorcycle. With pricing starting at 10,949 British pounds, the Rocket III Roadster will be available in two black colour options, namely metallic Phantom Black and Matt Black.
Powered by Triumph’s three-cylinder 2,294cc powerplant, the bike’s maximum torque point increased by 15 percent, to an impressive 221 Newton meters. All this power output is being released through new silencers on each side that also contribute to the bike’s aggressive look.
In addition, Triumph’s anti-lock braking system (ABS) is fitted as standard on the Rocket III Roadster and the bike has received a long list of ergonomic and quality improvements over the previous Rocket III. According to the British manufacturer, the footrests are further back, lower down and more inboard than on the Rocket III.
The seat has also been redesigned, so the rider now sits higher and further forward than before and therefore reduces the reach to the handlebars and makes it easier to steer through corners.
The new 2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster will stand next to the long-haul Rocket III Touring, priced at 12,999 British pounds.
