triumph rocket iii

Triumph Rocket III has been in production since 2004 by the Triumph Motorcycles Ltd and it is a 3-cylinder motorcycle with 2,294cc of power. That classifies the motorcycle as the bike with the largest displacement engine being produced in bulk as of September 2010. The name was borrowed from the BSA Motorcycle of 1968 known as Rocket 3 and manufactured as Triumph Trident. The project of Rocket III was Ross Clifford the Triumph Product Range Manager in 1998 and involved extensive research. The research extended to USA where the demand for larger bikes was huge. Harley-Davidson Ultra Glide and Honda Goldwing were the primary competitors hence it was planned to develop a performance cruiser with 1,600cc. Yamaha launched the Road Star Warrior with 1,670cc engine in 2002 so Triumph ultimately decided to go for a larger displacement and chose 2, 294cc. The bike was finally debuted in the US at San Antonio, Texas on 20th August 2003.
