Triumph Rocket III loses the top spot
The 2300cc triple in the Triumph Rocket III will no longer be the largest-displacement production motorcycle in the world after this year. Motorcycle Daily is reporting that a company in the Czech Republic (which they refer to as both FGR and MGR) will be producing a V-6 motorcycle, the Midalu 2500.
The reported specs of the 2442cc V-6 powerplant in the Midalu 2500 are reported as 240HP and 160 ft/lbs of torque, while the overall weight should be in the neighborhood of 600 lbs. The steel trellis-framed Midalu 2500 is also supposed to use top-of-the-line components. The price isn’t yet known, but whatever it is, you probably shouldn’t get too excited. Production is expected to be quite low, and sales will probably be restricted to the EU.
It looks kind of like a Ducati Diavel…for real men.
