2011 Triumph Rocket III Roadster
MSRP $13,999

The world’s ultimate motorcycle Roadster moves out of pure cruiser territory and transcends into that of the ultimate muscle streetfighter with the new Rocket III Roadster. Coming in two mean and moody black color options, metallic Phantom Black or an aggressive Matte Black alternative, the Triumph Rocket III Roadster is powered by an uprated version of Triumph’s iconic three-cylinder 2,297cc powerplant. Maximum power has increased over the outgoing Rocket III, with torque up by 15% to a mighty 163 ft.lbs.
