idiots who defame the R3!

published

there is a guy here (wistawosta) who claims there is vibrations when riding a R3?
i am not sure he's has ever had one or he's making it up?
I have 2 of these bikes, smooth as silk, handling is beautiful and turns on a dime!
Anyhow just thought people should know that this message is untrue!

My husband loves his Rocket 111 !!

published

This is a big bike not for the feint hearted. Its powerful, its big and its heavy but I husband thinks its far superior than a Harley Davidson. It handles brilliantly on the road, but you got to respect the rocket (his words) He is happy that it was good value for money - we paid $18500 with only 7ks on the clock. As it is such a heavy bike you do have to be careful with itas he dropped it and was very hard to get back up. Parts are hell expensive though. Overall its a bike thats got the pull power and its one hell of a powerful machine. He is extremely happy with it. Triumph is very expensive though to service it and not a lot of mechanics for bikes do like servicing them .

Rocket 3 touring is the winner!

published

What a disgrace Triumph,

published

If you want to feel a bike with a vibration, you should buy one of these, I bought one and it is shocking and the service from Triumph is the same

Bad vibration at mid range rev's, bad warranty service and parts supply

Questions & Answers

Has anyone had a very hot petrol tank on the Rocket 3 Tourer?
I picked up my new bike yesterday and have only travelled 120 km’s on it and the last 50 km’s at 27degree ambient temperature in suburban traffic.
I am worried that the fuel in the tank is getting too hot.

Hi Rick

i have a 2016 in Matt black, like most black bikes they do generate a bit of heat, but no problems at all.. over 6ks now

I checked the temp of the petrol inside the tank and the thermometer read 39.5 degrees C.
I went back to the dealer and the young mechanic said that it was totally normal as the headers were situated under the fuel tank.
1700km so far and no problems displayed so he is probably right.

Popeyeasked

I ride a Suzuki intruder 1400 and I am spoiled with superior power and torque but when I ride for more than 4 or 5 hours I am worn out. I am looking for a touring bike that performs as great as my bike but doesn't wear me out. Is this r3 tourer my bike?

Brother the Rocket is great for touring. But it ian heavy. So this means if your touring will include bends and numerous turned it will be tiring. On weekend I rode 600km. By the end of it I could most certainly feel it in my legs. But in saying this the additional weight holds well on the long roads.

All in all it is a great machine. You have a lovely cycle. But honestly the torque is no comparison from the set of lights.

I have. Itching but great things to say about the rocket. Hope this assists. Kind regards.

My low milage (10,000) 2009 (pampered) Rocket 111 is down for clutch repairs. Almost a total redo. Is there a history of clutch problem?

Not that I'm aware of. I've had mine since 2013 and it's a 2011 model I bought second hand wit 30.000 K's on it and it hasn't missed a beat and now she had 45,000K's and still going strong.
I would find out what oil you are using. I know it's tempting to put expensive oil in your bike but this bike came out with Casral 4t 10-40 or15-50 and that's what I put in.
She runs smoother and hasn't let me down.
Hope this helps.
Happy rocketing buddy!!
