My previous bike was a R1200RT and i got a little stalled with the whole BMW thing and wanted something completly different. Whilst i have no problem with bike i have to say that the luggage capacity is very limited. It's very easy to let your heart rule your head when choosing a bike and the thought of luggage was not my first consideration but after the first long trip (Germany) you then realise that luggage space is a problem. A top box seemed like a good idea. I knew Triumph did not have... (read more)

Exceptional power but blown away on how it handles for a large bike! The detail and quallity of the chrome and fixtures is unbelievable! I've never been more excited to ride a bike! I have nothing against HD, but for the equal money I'll take my Triumph every time! Go get one and see what it's like! (read more)

I bought my Triumph Rocket 3 Touring from Laguna Motorcycles at Ashford. I traded-in my Kawasaki 1400 GTR and got a really good deal.
The people at Laguna Ashford top rate, especailly Paul and Simon.
Having previously owned a Kawasaki VN 2000 I was used to a large bike but WOW! The Rocket is in another classs for sheer power and presence. it is akin to riding your own planet as people just gravitate to the bike in utter wonderment!
The build quality appears to be exceptional and it runs... (read more)

Recently bought a new Rocket 3 touring and I am totaly blown away by its abilities. The thing is so quick in any gear. It will easily excellerate up from 35mph in 5th gear upto +70 in seconds, effortlessly overtaking others. Handling is surprisingly light considering it bulk. It does enjoy the juice and I dont imagine getting much past 2000miles on the rear tyre so its probably back to bulk purchase of tyres to keep prices down. Tall riders will seriously want to get the higher screen as the... (read more)

Awesome power. There is no engine like it , with incredible torque. Thrilling to ride, a monster !!!
Handling is very good considering the weight (400 kilos) but can be a challenge at low speeds: (read more)

I owned a 2009 Road King Classic. I just bought the Triumph Rocket 3 Touring and I love it!! The Triumph has tons more power than the road king but what's most impressive is it's handling in slow speeds. The Road King was very top heavy compared to the Rocket 3 Touring. The Triumph is very nimble... add that with it's quick acceleration and the price compared to the Road King = I'm very very happy that I made a change!! (read more)

I stepped off a ZZR1400 as wanted less sports and more touring capability 2 up. I tested all the obvious tourers from BMW/Honda/Kwasaki and found them all a bit dull. Very good, capable bikes but there was little excitement.
The Rocket wasnt the obvious choice but it very quickly grew on me and every ride seems like an occasion. We're planing a trip to Italy from the Uk this summer and Im really expecting to have some great fun even if the twisties through the Alps might keep me busy - but... (read more)

Have just collected my new Triumph Rocket III Touring from North City Triumph Chigwell Essex ( who I can't rate to highly excellent service). I live in France and got such a deal in the UK what with the problems with the pound against the euro it was too good to turn down. I decided on a Rocket as usually when one has a midlife crises or in my case an end of life crises, one either has a divorce or buys a Harley. But as i love my wife and did not fancy an affair with a Road King it had to be... (read more)

My 2007 Triumph Rocket III Classic Tourer is everything I read it was and more. Lots of power and torque. The handle bars are set at a good height and angle. At 21 inch seat height you won't be on your tippy toes. The brakes are smooth and sure. It handles like a smaller bike. In town riding isn't cumbersome what so ever. You DO have to remember you are riding a 750 pound bike.Shifting and clutch pull is a breeze. The looks of the bike is very nice. Freeway passing requires no down shift... (read more)

Big grins all round. Amazing road holding, far more manouverable at lower speeds than you'd expect. Always leaves you smiling. (read more)

I took ownership of a new Triumph Rocket III Touring on the 10th May 08, trading up from an 06 Kawasaki VN1600 Classic tourer. I purchased the bike from GT Motorcycles in St Austell.
The VN1600 is a heavy bike but not as heavy as the Rocket. However, the Rocket rides about 100lbs lighter, or so it seems. I got astride the Rocket III outside the shop and started it up. It sounds very quiet, probably too quiet for many, however, as I am looking at long distance riding, the quieter the better... (read more)
