2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster

This is entertaining...

" The 2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster is the ultimate muscle streetfighter with the biggest torque figures found on any production motorcycle. The Rocket III Roadster's iconic three-cylinder 2,294cc powerplant has 15% more torque for a mighty 163ft.lbs. "

Kinda like a latest and greats S3???

LOL

I love my dad's Rocket. My biggest complaint is the suspension still being too stiff.
This definately looks like a great alternative.

Can you imagine that thing with custom titanium 3 into 3 megaphones?

My dad was looking at the raider as an upgrade from his Vstar 1100, I showed him this bike though. He said he had heard great things about among his cruiser people but the knock on it is that it is pretty expensive to repair if/when something breaks. whatchyou guys know?

I know of no cheap bike to fix or repair.
I also know for the most part they are bullet proof. The local shop has only had one in for some work. I am not sure of the reason... but my father was talking with the mechanic about it and he looked unconcerned.

That's because your fat a$$ has completely bottomed out suspension ...

Always wanted a Rocket 3. I was going to buy one before I bought the 919. Something about the nearest dealer being 5 hours away helped me make my decision.

I rode one last year and it was an amazing ride. However, the seat and position kind of sucked (to me). However, it sounds like others must have thought the same thing and that they have fixed those concerns. And, that test rider is amazing.
