2013 Triumph Rocket III Touring

Posted on by  

The 2013 Triumph Rocket Touring is a comfortable tourer that was forged from Triump’s desire to create the perfect partner for long journeys.

The motorcycle is built around a strong 2,294 cc liquid cooled, dohc, in-line three cylinder unit that comes with increased levels of torque at low speeds (203 Nm at 2,500 rpm). The engine is mated on a five speeds transmission and is fed by a 5.9 liters fuel tank.

To be able to keep in check the huge power developed by the engine, the Rocket Touring needed a set of similarly powerful brakes. Therefore, you get twin floating 320mm discs with Nissin four-piston fixed callipers to the front and single 316mm floating discs with Brembo two-piston floating callipers to the rear.

The 2013 Triumph Rocket Touring is offered with a starting price of $ 17,299.
