ABS Anti-Lock Braking System Standard
Rocket III Roadster. For when too much is never enough
2.3 liters. 163ft.lbs of torque. Blacked out. Blinged up. Streetfighting cruiser. Hard. The Rocket III Roadster is not normal, it is very, very extraordinary. No other motorcycle on the planet comes close to delivering the tree-pulling levels of torque that comes as standard with the turbine-like triple. Twist and go. Sounds great, stops great. Standard ABS. Classic streetfighter looks. Are you ‘bad’ enough for the Rocket III Roadster?
The engine. What an engine. With 2,294cc of pure muscle delivering 146bhp at 5,750 rpm and 163ft.lbs the Roadster accelerates like nothing else. Smooth and balanced with minimal torque reaction.
Of course, such an engine requires a quality chassis and the Rocket III Roadster doesn’t disappoint. High-quality chassis components include 43mm upside-down forks and standard anti-lock brakes, while the Roadster’s ergonomics have been developed to put the rider in total control.
As you’d expect from a top-of-the-range machine, the Rocket III Roadster features a comprehensive instrumentation package, delivered neatly in the classic twin clock design.

It may sound like a cliché©, but Triumph’s Rocket III Roadster truly is a unique motorcycle with a massive presence and a legendary powerplant. With its 2,294cc three-cylinder engine, the Rocket III Roadster is home to the world’s largest production motorcycle engine. Delivering a 221Nm wallop of torque at just 2750rpm, the Rocket III Roadster delivers a riding experience
unmatched by anything else on two wheels.
Although featuring in Triumph’s Cruiser range, the Rocket III Roadster transcends genres. With its mid-mounted pegs and relatively upright riding position, the Roadster takes on a streetfighter stance and delivers an attitude-laden ride that every motorcyclist should experience at least once in their two-wheeled career.
Shrinking violets need not apply.
The ergonomics ensure that the Roadster delivers a completely different riding experience to any other Rocket IIIs and one that is easier to hustle through the corners. With a plush seat for both rider and pillion, and comfortable and controllable rear suspension, the Rocket III Roadster is capable of covering long distances with aplomb.
As you would expect from a flagship model, the Rocket III Roadster comes highly equipped as standard, with comprehensive instrumentation including fuel gauge, gear selection indicator and clock, 43mm upside-down front forks, adjustable rear suspension, low maintenance shaft drive and sophisticated anti-lock brakes as standard.
Up front, the Rocket III Roadster sports Triumph’s trademark twin headlights to make this imposing motorcycle even more striking, while the components carefully balance black and chrome to create an aggressive stripped-down look.
The Rocket III Roadster also comes with the option of special color options. In addition to the popular metallic Phantom Black comes in two flamboyant color schemes: Phantom Red Haze and Phantom Blue Haze. These are hand-painted in Triumph’s Hinckley factory and contain high sparkle content which creates an impression of incredible depth in sunlight, transforming from nearly black to a vibrant red or blue.

The paragraph descriptions for the pre-owned bikes are generic, what the factory used when the bikes were new so they might not be precise. The bike may have been modified. Take them with a grain of salt. Same with the specifications, those are stating how the bike was spec’d stock, when new, not necessarily as it is at this very moment. Our salespeople will be glad to answer any detailed questions should anything in the generic descriptions be confusing. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free. Thanks, - Barnett Harley-Davidson
