The 2.3-litre Triumph Rocket III has become the 2.5-litre Rocket 3 and is till the biggest torque monster of any production bike in the world.

Currently the Rocket III has the biggest capacity engine of any production motorcycle with a 2294cc triple, delivering 221Nm of torque and 109kW of power.

When the limited edition Rocket 3 TFC arrives in late November it will have 134kW of power and a mouth-watering, arm-wrenching 225Nm of torque, making it still the torque monster in the world of production motorcycles.

Triumph has released further tech specs n the bike such as its hefty 320kg of weight, but still 40kg lighter than the III.

Triumph Motorcycles Australia has not yet released pricing, but expect to pay much more than the current Rocket III ($23,990).

Only 750 numbered models of each will be made worldwide and Australia gets 25.

The production version of the Rocket 3 is set to follow.

MSRP is $29,000.00 U.S.
I may have mentioned in another thread that 225 are slated for North America and the entire production run has already been sold out.
I dunno, when the price of a motorcycle rivals the price of many decent cars, it certainly makes you think twice.
But I suppose if you have money to burn...………….

It is an impressive bike. BUT it is way too pricey for me. Plus it is too heavy for this old guy and is not suitable for off pavement riding. Just not my style. I would like to ride one, though.
