Triumph 2300 ROCKET III 2005

Menus

Surreal, fantastic, crazy … The limits are crossed, exceeded, exploded! The new Triumph cruiser is a monster step in a world of rebels. Honda blew everyone away by cramming huge engines into these latest machines: 1,800 cc twin in the VTX and 1,800 cc 6 cylinder in the Goldwing. Triumph sweeps away these benchmarks. The new 3-cylinder English cube almost 2,300 cc. The figures announced are breathtaking: 142 hp and 20.3 mkg. When accelerating, the Rocket III pulverizes everything that rolls, the pilot taking charge of collecting 1.2 G. The torque is available very early: 90% from 1,800 revs and the maximum value is reached 700 trs later. To convey this fury, a 240mm malabar tire. The engine, which houses pistons the same diameter as the Dodge Viper, is quite simply the largest motorcycle mill ever built. Triumph didn’t limit itself to that; the design of the cruiser is sublime. The bike is unlike any other and the dual optic look adds the Triumph leg inspired by the Speed ​​Triple. The left side is impressive and superbly brings out the fury of which the beast is capable. The right flank seems more massive, almost of an auto engine blandness. Newly arrived on the customs-dragsters, the fork is inverted and traps the brake system of the 955 Daytona as well as a tire blocker of 150 mm. Ideal for showing off at all cafes (racer?), The Rocket III will also allow you to ridicule the Hayabusa and ZX-12R both at red lights and on the terraces of bistros for a long time! Because not only is the engine announced surprisingly sober (in fact, only quiet – angry, he drinks copiously), but the tank accommodates 25 L, enough to afford hours and hours of adrenaline..

First uppercut. The untrained pilot should beware before stepping on this powder keg. If your right hand is itchy, expect 2 penalties to choose from: either you cling like a madman, or you flag the bike. In pure acceleration, the Rocket III ridicules all current production. Believe in its 2 “8 to reach 100 km / h. A record that very few machines can display sTRIUMPH 2300 ROCKET IIIon their business card. The face imposes it, the performances explode. Here is the craziest custom on the planet.

What a work this 3 cylinders designed by Triumph. A monument that arouses admiration, commands respect, promises the exceptional … Inside, the mobile crew lives through hell. The huge bowls send colossal torque to a sturdy 17 kg crankshaft. The poor gearbox gears will have to digest the fury of the mill before inflicting a lesson on the unfortunate rear tire.

Before unleashing the underworld, we will have to put the monster in balance. And this is where apprehension turns into a smile. The machine is practically raised with a finger, without difficulty. Astonishing for a machine which reaches the third of a ton. Typically in the American cruiser spirit, the riding position leads us to grab a handlebars wide like the road; for the feet, the same fight: well forward to maintain ground clearance. The softness of the controls contrasts with certain inconveniences, such as the shape of the selector or the size of the handles. Well, we settle on the comfortable saddle. We spread our legs … and we wake up the beast.
Shocking! What calm. From this enormous mechanism, we expected a noise stirring the guts. And no, the sound is rather reserved, too polished even for this type of gear. He faTRIUMPH 2300 ROCKET IIIudra think about installing more liberated exhausts (uh, the constabulary may be bitching, right?!?). And in this case, the 3 legs becomes surly in its vocalizations. Not to mention that it adds fishing at low speeds.
Besides, the magic begins here. Stabilized on idle at 500 rpm, the propellant demonstrates masterful flexibility. We can walk around on the last report without any inappropriate mood movement. The gearbox is not very fast but very precise. Sliding gently on the asphalt, we drive with joy, benefiting from a surprisingly balanced part-cycle. A disproportionate machine but surprisingly maneuverable. We take the opportunity to measure the potential of the boiler which agitates under our buttocks. Until the 2nd digit of the tachometer, the muscle is already very strong. between 2 and 3,000 revs, the torque is practically at its peak, the power consolidates its positions and is about to give the coup de grace. The needle goes through 3, it’s too late, we warned you, the ultimate force has just arrived
“Damn, a 747 just hit me from behind …!” No, no, it’s the 2nd kiss-cool effect. The thrust of the 2.3 L is more than impressive. The watts tumble down without sparing you up to 7000 trs. Dynamite embellished with nitroglycerimethanol. Well, it’s clear: it’s a crazy machine.

And do not think that the machine is only used to pulverize the GSX-R and other Ariane rockets between 2 red lights. The chassis is remarkable and allows easy placement of the Rocket. Very stable in curves, you only worry about your driving when the toe clips start to rub. And again … No danger. And what a pleasure to take this bike with a superb balance, which is reminiscent of a certain Honda F6C. The fork does a decent job, and its brake calipers are powerful enough to calm this bull down … as long as you ride it like a cruiser. This will not be enough to exploit the full potential of the monster. As always with Triumph, we will refrain from comments on the rear brake. As for comfort, it deteriorates quickly on questionable ground. The rear suspension reacts sharply, much to the dismay of your vertebrae. Without counting on the fantastic times of this power-cruiser which literally tear your arms away.

TRIUMPH 2300 ROCKET IIIThe virolos are approaching; the Rocket does not deflate. Agile and precise, it follows the rhythm perfectly, and we have come to raise it seriously. Be careful, because the motorcycle tends to widen the trajectory and wiggle its behind. You did not have enough adrenaline … here is a little more.

Extravagant, sensational, enjoyable, the Rocket III is an undisputed success. Hinckley has succeeded, by offering a machine allowing to enjoy the cruising mode and to hold the dragee high to many sportswomen on a hot start. We take as much happiness in one as in the other game. Intended above all for America, the Englishwoman is already bourgeois with a very extensive catalog of options and accessories. The pilot will be in heaven, the passenger less. The essential is there: a machine child of excess, generating as much pleasure as intoxicating ardor.
