TRIUMPH 2010 ROCKET III ROADSTER



For 2010 the original Rocket III and the Classic models are getting pushed aside to make way for a completely new animal, the Rocket Roadster, with a more sinister appeal and more aggressive riding position. Footpegs have been repositioned farther back and lower, and moved slightly inboard. The new saddle is slightly higher and more forward, resulting in new ergonomicss said to improve handling.

A smoked flyscreen and redesigned fuel tank further distances the Roadster from its stablemates, and it's also the first Rocket to receive ABS as standard. Black paint and dark tones cloak this already black bike, and lest there be any question about the Roadster's image, it's going to be available only in Metallic Phantom Black or Matte Black. The new Roadster will also get a massive 15% boost in claimed torque and a 6% increase in horsepower! Jaysus.........


Triumph says the new Roadster should hit dealers in 2010, and will be competitively priced at £10,949 - roughly about $17,900 in today's US dollars, though that's bound to change at the actual release date. Great bike for a great price!

...except if you live in Denmark, where' it'll probably cost about 9 million kroner after it gets mutilated with import tax and all the fun gets removed....
