The Triumph Rocket III was a cruiser motorcycle made by Triumph Motorcycles from 2004 to 2017. The bike was equipped with the largest displacement engine fitted on a production motorcycle until 2017 when the maker released the Rocket 3 with a larger unit.
In addition to the base Rocket III model, the British motorcycle manufacturer made four more models with different characteristics and names available. The Rocket range comprised the base, Classic Roadster, Tourer, and Touring versions.
In 2007, the British motorcycle maker launched the Triumph Rocket III Touring, a motorcycle developed in 2004 targeting the large cruiser market, represented by 50 percent of all United States motorcycle sales.
Compared to other Rocket models, the Touring version featured a new design for the frame and swingarm and a different engine tune for less horsepower and more torque. In addition, the bike had a smaller 16-inch front wheel and a regular fork instead of the USD unit of other models.
Some other notable modifications included a new tank-mounted instrument panel with a scrolling switch on the handlebar and billet aluminum slotted wheels instead of the five-spoke design used on other Rockets.
As for the performance figures, the 2007 Triumph Rocket III Touring had its soul brought to life by the same massive and stylish 2,294cc four-stroke three-cylinder liquid-cooled engine as other Rockets, boasting 106 hp at 5,400 rpm and 203 Nm (150 lb-ft) torque at 2,500 rpm.
