Triumph launches 2.3 litre Rocket

1 of 1

Triumph’s new Rocket III has twice as much torque as an R1, tops 150mph and features the biggest purpose-built bike engine ever at 2294cc.

The triple-cylinder cruiser has almost twice as much torque as a Harley-Davidson V-Rod, and 50 per cent more than a Suzuki Hayabusa. Peak torque is at just 2500rpm, and the resulting acceleration is equivalent to 1.2G of force and by comparison, a Suzuki GSX-R struggles to better the 1G mark.
