Triumph Motorcycles, the largest motorcycle manufacturer of UK, which is widely known as the World,s largest capacity production bikes has launched the 2013 versions of its legendary Rocket III Roadster and Rocket III Touring. Holding the specialities what had in the previous versions, the new Rocket III bikes are on with few more added features. Now the new bikes of the English manufacturer seem to be more lively to rival the ruler of this segment, Harley Davidson.
The new 2013 Rocket III Roadster comes with the same mammoth 2294 cc, Liquid-cooled, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine. Producing a maximum power of 148 PS (109 kW) at 5750 rpm and a maximum torque of 221 Nm at 2750 rpm the Roadster becomes one of the most powerful machine in its segment. The bike is mated with a 5 speed gearbox that turns even city drives simpler. With Tubular steel, twin spine frame, the machine is felt rigid and reliable. Thanks to the Multipoint sequential electronic fuel injection with twin butterflies and progressive linkage on primary butterflies, it ensures a better mileage even with this monstrous engine.
Meantime, front suspension- KYB 43mm upside down forks, 120mm travel and rear suspension- KYB black spring twin shocks with 5 position adjustable preload, 105mm rear wheel travel promise the most comfortable drive on a two wheeled machine. Since safety matters, ABS has been wedded at both ends. Additionally, to make the bike more powerful and to provide more torque exactly with the same engine, the company has removed the inhibitor that electronically disturbed the torque slightly.
Triumph has also taken care to provide a new outlook. The fixtures that were once chromed are now looks in black including the air box cover, the horn cover, mirrors, rear mudguard rails and fork protectors. This give the bike a darker, meaner and a sporty look like never before.
The new 2013 Rocket III Touring has been modified to sack the extreme long riders. Though it is s lightly less powered comparing the Rocket III Roadster, the bike provides what a cruiser must be entangled with. Loaded with the same massive 2294 cc, Liquid-cooled, DOHC, in-line 3-cylinder engine, the bike expels gorgeous power of 106 PS (78 kW) @ 6000rpm and some stunning torque of 203 Nm @ 2500 rpm. It is mated with the same 5 speed transmission. The Rocket III Touring offers centre of gravity and hence the most stability for the machine. The dual-density layered foam seat makes the long drive pleasurable. Crushing down the Harley Road King the bike ensures more power in its class.
The on the road price of the 2013 Rocket III Roadster is £12,899 and of the 2013 Rocket III Touring is £13,899 in UK.
These two are precisely renowned as the World’s largest capacity production motorcycles.
