ROCKET III ROADSTER
With the world’s biggest production motorcycle engine the latest Rocket III Roadster builds on the huge performance of the original Rocket III but now with even more torque. The 2.3 litre, three-cylinder engine is designed to be an arm-wrenching thrill to ride, yet easy and unintimidating too, despite its thunderous roar. Its sweet handling chassis, rigid frame and sophisticated suspension gives you the confidence to sweep through corners and change direction with an agility that belies this Roadsters size. The latest Rocket III features blackened components including radiator cowls, rear mudguard rails, airbox cover, fork protectors, and mirrors giving our Roadster an even more menacing look. There's nothing else like it out there, not to look at, nor to ride.
Power and Performance
The capacity of the Rocket III Roadster is huge, 2,294cc, and with a gut churning 221Nm at just 2,750rpm it has more torque at idle than most superbikes at full chat. The latest engine is unrestricted thereby delivering its full strength in the first three gears giving it almighty punch.
The rear wheel width on the Rocket III is an awesome 240-section/240mm.
We developed the big, tubular steel twin spine design to be strong and rigid enough to contain this powerhouse of a motor and we focused on giving you an great level of agility too.
Rocket III Roadster Style
Few sights match the Rocket III Roadster’s visual impact. Instantly recognisable and guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever it’s parked, the Rocket III Roadster showcases its cruiser credentials with a massive engine and triple chrome headers set against a blacked-out silhouette. Characteristic twin headlamps and chrome detailing add the finishing touches to its laid-back, brutal charm.
The Rocket III gives you low speed balance and beautifully neutral steering so when you’re faced with a twisty road you can be filled with confidence.
With a shaft drive that needs no maintenance outside the scheduled service intervals, you have a roadster that's so reliable, durable and engaging that you could even go touring on it.
