Default 2006 Triumph Rocket III Classic

I'm going to look at this bike tonight and if it works out it'll be mine.
The price is very good and the miles are low but not so low that it's sat causing problems.
I've talked to the owner on the phone, he's the original owner. He bought it for him and his
wife to do day trips and as the years passed he rode less and less.
The bike is all original!!
114.05 HP @ 5300 and 131.97 ft-lb @ 2500 it'll be a beast, this is rear wheel numbers.

That one hell of a machine and a unique bike to own. Good luck on getting it.
I've been recently watching some videos of the 2020 Rocket III with a 2.5l triple engine. (no worries...I'm only fascinated.. )

The Rocket III's are putting down some pretty great HP readings. They are getting towards the Yamaha VMAX numbers.

I wonder if your arms start getting longer when ridding one from just holding on...

I think the V-Strom is going. My life has changed and I don't need a work commuter anymore.
