You never know where you’ll go or what you’ll come across on a Triumph Adventure bike.
It’s not about what we’ve added to these iconic classic motorcycles over the years. It’s about what we haven’t taken away.
To the onlooker, Triumph Cruisers could be mistaken for being just about pure classic cruiser style.
The approach to our roadsters is simple. If it doesn’t enhance the power, handling, feel or sound of the bike it doesn’t go on it.
Lives on the road but was born for the track.
You know the feeling when you just want to keep riding and riding and riding?

With the world’s biggest production motorcycle engine the latest Rocket III Roadster builds on the huge performance of the original Rocket III but now with even more torque.
The 2.3 litre, three-cylinder engine is designed to be an arm-wrenching thrill to ride, yet easy and unintimidating too, despite its thunderous roar. Its sweet handling chassis, rigid frame and sophisticated suspension gives you the confidence to sweep through corners and change direction with an agility that belies this Roadsters size.
The latest Rocket III features blackened components including radiator cowls, rear mudguard rails, airbox cover, fork protectors, and mirrors giving our Roadster an even more menacing look.
There's nothing else like it out there, not to look at, nor to ride.
The capacity of the Rocket III Roadster is huge, 2,294cc, and with a gut churning 221Nm at just 2,750rpm it has more torque at idle than most superbikes at full chat!
The latest engine is unrestricted thereby delivering its full strength in the first three gears giving it almighty punch.
The three big cylinders are arranged lengthways along the bike to keep it manageably narrow and align the crankshaft with the shaft final drive, but to tame the reaction of the massive torque, the crankshaft counter-rotates so the bike stays steady when the throttle’s blipped.
With a shaft drive that needs no maintenance outside the scheduled service intervals, you have a roadster that’s so reliable, durable and engaging that you could even go touring on it.
We developed the big, tubular steel twin spine design to be strong and rigid enough to contain this powerhouse of a motor. But we focused on giving you an improbable level of agility too.
We gave the front end sports-bike-style upside down forks 43mm in diameter so they’re strong enough to cope with all the forces a bike like this can deal out, yet with sophisticated internals so you get a plush, controlled ride.
The rear wheel diameter on the Rocket III is 16 inches to emphasise the fatness of the back tyre but to give you a more agile bike too.
A bike like this needs a pair of vice-like, four-piston callipers. Gripping the 320mm discs and backed up by our advanced ABS system and a huge 316mm disc at the rear.
What our design and testing teams have managed to achieve is a massive bike with genuine handling prowess. Giving you low speed balance and beautifully neutral steering so when you’re faced with a twisty road you can be filled with anticipation and confidence.
It's your stance that really separates the ride on a Rocket III Roadster from the Rocket III Touring.
We put the Roadster footrests back to a mid position and the seat forward. Sitting you upright and active for better control. Spacious and comfortable enough to cover distances and cruising, especially with a seat this plush and generously sized.
And, despite the bike's width, it's still slender in the middle so your legs aren't splayed apart uncomfortably. The Rocket III Roadster might be larger than life, but it's still designed to fit.
The advanced ABS brakes on the Rocket III Roaster are fitted as standard. This is a massive bike that comes with huge amounts of control.
This is a premium flagship motorcycle so we equipped it accordingly.
All the instruments are all there for you, fuel gauge, gear indicator, dual trip and clock in addition to the basic functions. Then there’s the signature massive twin headlights making a powerful style statement and lighting up the road ahead at night for safer riding.
Special Editions find out more
Launched in 2004, and continually developed since, the Rocket III has gained iconic status as the bike that every rider has on their wish list of ‘must do’ rides. And now, born from the biggest, baddest and meanest bike out there, the Limited Edition Rocket X offers the ultimate ride and status.
With its 2,294cc three cylinder engine sitting in line with the chassis, the Rocket X is home to the world’s largest production motorcycle engine. Delivering a 221Nm sledgehammer of torque at just 2750rpm, the Rocket X delivers extraordinary acceleration in any gear at any revs.

For the Rocket X, Triumph went to premium custom paint specialists 8 Ball to create a scheme that truly sets this bike apart and that would make every one of the 500 Limited Edition bikes unique. The quality, craftsmanship, and attention to detail required to achieve the desired effect is at the very top end of the custom paint scene. The sheer depth of the gloss Jet Black paint contrasting with the ‘grinded’ polished metal stripe, Triumph logo, and Rocket X emblems offer an incredible quality and sense of solidity that’s truly befits this iconic machine.
Vying for attention with the custom paint and 2.3 litre engine is the black exhaust system. The twin-skinned full exhaust system is coated with high temperature resistance paint, rated to maintain Triumph’s signature quality finish and the Rocket X’s world turning torque figures.
A black fly screen shrouds the chrome ringed instruments to add even more visual presence. The mean look has also been further enhanced with the addition of black finishing to the handlebars, mirrors, gear, and brake levers. The Rocket’s signature 5-spoke aluminium alloy wheels have also received the black treatment and are skilfully finished off with a complimenting hand painted pinstripe.
Every one of the limited run of 500 motorcycles will feature side panel badging and unique numbering. For an even greater sense of solidity, the oil tank mounted special Rocket X badge is machined from a billet of solid aluminium using a CNC milling machine adding an exquisite premium finish.
