TRI­UMPH SET SIGHTS ON STATES

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Tri­umph al­ready had the beefy 2.3-litre, wa­ter-cooled, three­cylin­der Rocket III, but this re­vised ver­sion was aimed to ap­peal to the Amer­i­can bag­ger mar­ket. A stur­dier frame was cre­ated to cope with the bag­ger’s ex­tra weight – which was get­ting on for 400kg – and the an­tic­i­pated ad­di­tion of pan­niers. The Rocket III Tour­ing ap­peared in 2009, but never sold in huge num­bers.
