2011 Triumph Rocket Touring | Quick Look

2011 Triumph Motorcycle

If displacement is all that matters, there is no other choice in baggers than the 2.3-liter Triumph Rocket III Touring.

It would be obvious to assume that the Rocket III Touring’s automotive-size motor is muscle- bound and hopelessly heavy, but that is not the case.

It’s an easy-to-ride behemoth that is never wanting for power and astonishingly agile once in motion.

Creature comforts include backrests and floorboards for both the driver and passenger. A luggage rack integrated into the passenger backrest provides additional carrying capacity.
