I write stuff. A lot of it is about cars and motorcycles.

Rocket, Again

So, now that I’ve got the Sporty tricked out, Triumph wants my attention again, apparently. they’ve just announced a brand new touring version of the Rocket III for 2008.

There’s a first test ride report here.

They’ve redesigned the suspension, frame, gas tank, changed the tires, moved the gauges to a tank console, and upped the torque to 154 lb.-ft., at about 500 RPM lower. And the price is under $17k.

Right now, my plan is to keep the Sporty for another year. Maybe I’ll take another look at trading up when the 2009’s come out, and see what kind of deal on left-over 2008 I can work. When that time comes, I might just take another look at the Rocket.
