General information about the Triumph Rocket III Roadster

The Triumph Rocket III Roadster has the biggest engine of any production motorcycle in the world. The massive motor on the Rocket III certainly allows it to live up to its name, thanks in large part to output numbers that hit 148 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 163 pound-feet of torque at 2,750 rpm.

It’s not the fastest bike in the world but that’s not the point. What you get is unbridled power that can still hit a standing quarter-mile in just 12.2 seconds to go with a top speed of 137 mph.
