In 2014, Triumph was set to take the 25 foot-long machine to the Bonneville Salt Flats on two occasions aiming for a new motorcycle land speed world record and a target speed of 400 mph—only to have each attempt scuttled by bad weather.The Castrol Rocket is powered by two de-stroked, liquid-cooled three cylinder Triumph Rocket III engines that produce an estimated combined 1,000 horsepower at 9,000 RPM and 500 ft/lbs of torque.The Carpenter Racing built engines were reduced from 2294cc to 1485cc (2970cc total) to meet the 3000cc maximum total displacement class rule requirement. Each engine is fueled by a liquid-cooled Garrett turbocharger which will be feeding the engines methanol. Connecting rods are Crower titanium and the crankshaft is a marine billet item.The front suspension is a double swingarm and rear suspension is a single swingarm system, both designed by Carpenter Racing. Shock absorbers are Ohlins TTX36 adjustable with 3 shocks in the front and 2 at the rear. Hot Rod Conspiracy designed a center hub steering system for the machine, as well as its custom wheels, which are shod with Goodyear Land Speed Special tires.Stopping is handled by twin ribbon-style parachutes and carbon/carbon disc brake on the rear wheel only. The machine has a Carbon Kevlar monocoque chassis.Attendees at Dallas IMS were encouraged to enter Triumph’s raffle where one lucky winner from the U.S. show tour will receive a $5,000 certificate towards parts, accessories, clothing and merchandise online at shop.triumphmotorcycles.com.For more information on the Triumph Castrol Rocket, please visit CastrolRocket.com.
