In a different state of tune to the Rocket III Roadster for even more useable torque, lower down the rev range, for a better touring ride. 106PS at 6000rpm and a torque of 203Nm to be precise.
A ride like no other bike, with smooth and powerful yet unintimidating acceleration with any load and on any incline. You’ll find the Rocket III Touring is a gentle giant with its 2.3 litre, three cylinder engine that is powerful and flexible enough to reward your riding style.
The classic looks of the Rocket III Touring are backed up by plenty of modern technology. Massive cylinders and crankcases hide double overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder and the latest materials and engine design ideas. Fuelling is taken care of by stateoftheart electronic fuel injection with twin butterflies per cylinder for smooth, predictable throttle control.
Even the fuel economy figures of the Rocket III Touring look impressive. 51.9mpg at 56mph and 41.9mpg at 75mph means you get well over 150 miles out of a single tank.
One of the main reasons that the engine cylinders are aligned along the length of the bike is so that they can better link up with the Rocket III Touring’s final shaft drive. This means you get a bike that’s lighter and capable of handling such huge levels of torque.
