2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster announced

The 2010 Triumph Rocket III Roadster is here and it wants to be the baddest bike on the block

Triumph have announced the 2010 Rocket III Roadster, which gets a 15% boost in torque, to 224Nm. Fitted with a tweaked version of the earlier 2.3-litre three-cylinder engine, the new Rocket III ‘moves out of pure cruiser territory and transcends into that of the ultimate muscle streetfighter,’ claim Triumph

Available in black and… er, black (shiny and matt versions), the Rocket III Roadster now also comes with ABS as standard, revised ergonomics, new rear suspension and new silencers. The changes are aimed at providing a more comfortable, better controlled ride.

With a big, fat Rotrex supercharger bolted on (which can boost power to around 250bhp!), the new Rocket III should certainly be the perfect motorcycle for those Sunday morning rides…

Yes, we like the Rocket III Roadster too!
