What Is It?

The Triumph Rocket III Touring is based on the 146bhp Rocket III cruiser launched in 2004 but with touring credentials designed in. It's powered by a liquid cooled 2,294cc triple engine, producing 106bhp at just 5,400rpm and maximum torque at a ridiculously low 2,000rpm. The roadster makes 146bhp at 5,750rpm.

Features include:

  • Tubular steel frame
  • Dual floating 320mm discs up front with Nissin 2 piston calipers
  • 316mm disc at the rear with Brembo 2 piston calipers
  • ABS system
  • 43mm Kayaba fork with 120mm travel
  • Dual rear Kayaba pre-load adjustable shocks with 105mm travel
  • Spring loaded chromed Aluminium footboards with replaceable sliders
  • Quick release spring loaded detachable short screen
  • Quick release sissy bar and gel padded pillion seat
  • 3->1->2 exhaust system

The Rocket III Touring differs from the standard Rocket III model in a few key ways, designed to help Triumph tackle the American cruiser market and specifically Harley. There is less power, the steel frame and swingarm are a different design, there are fuel tank mounted instruments and only a single headlight however two additional lights can be added.

It's been made less aggressive with more lower down torque for shifting heavier loads and generally being easier use; ideal for fully loaded two up long trips. Delivering that much torque to the rear wheel requires a shaft drive and that comes with the benefit of minimal maintenance outside regular servicing. 

The re-designed narrow subframe is mainly there to allow the large 36 litre lockable panniers to sit on the bike without adding unduly to the overall width and the tyres drops from 240 to 180 for the same reason.The 25-spoke 16" wheels are also quite different to the standard model, giving the effect of older solid wheels with drum brakes and take Metzler 880 180/70 tyres. The panniers are lockable, waterproof and stand up on their own when removed and stored on the floor. 

Options include the additional lights, tall screen, pillion backrest and highway pegs. 

Colours: Red/black or black with gold detailing.
