Good bike for the price
For those having vibration problems, it's most likely a front brake disc not floating. I've ridden 3 rockets and none vibrated. To those who say it's too heavy, there are about 4-5 bikes heavier than a triumph and they have 2/3 the power.They do have heavy steering and a bit top heavy at slow speeds. Gears a bit clunky. But a great bike on the highway that can a big load in comfort. I've owned mine 10 years.
Purchased in March 2008 for $180,000.00.
Rocket 3 touring is the winner!
G'day all, bought my Rocket tourer back in 2014.
She was a pre loved one owner with a low 30,000 k's on the dial.
First thing I did was give it a service even though the log book showed it had just been done.
The reason for this is so I have an actual true reference point that I can believe and my derive intervals will now be accurate.
The bike was completely standard when I picked her up.
My first ride was a 470 klms dash up the mountains just to get use to the big girl.
I found myself cornering much easier and faster than I thought...
Questions & Answers
The solid luggages are great for long touring, but imposing for an ordinary use as a big cruiser.
Does any of you have an idea if the frame under the luggages and welded to the pipes can be removed without modifications? Thanks. Cheers. Tex
Try some of the facebook or internet sites for rockets they have had discussions on this. I own a standard R3 , so didnt take too much notice.I seem to remember they dont look good without the luggage.
my truimph rocket 111 while i was riding the gauges flickered like a short what is the cause?
it sounds like a loose connection, check the relay.. if not just take mention it when you get a service
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.
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.
