MCN rode Triumph’s new Rocket III Roadster this week, and marvelled at the colossal amounts of torque – the 2300cc engine now puts out an astonishing 163lb-ft.
But if the Roadster’s price tag of £10,949 is too salty for you, then don’t forget that Triumph has now sold 18,000 Rockets. Which means there are plenty of used ones out there. Just this week on motorcyclenews.com there are 37 Rockets for sale, varying in price from £7000 to £13,000.

to see the whole lot.

The full first ride report of the Triumph Rocket III Roadster appears in next week’s MCN (out October 7).
