Rolling up alongside the Rocket III in 2006 is the new Rocket III Classic. While the original model has won the hearts of the power-cruiser crowd the Rocket III Classic is aimed squarely at those who favour a more relaxed approach to riding.
The Rocket III is a whirling, mechanised cyclone of power. Its three fuel-injected cylinders displace a monstrous 2,294cc and pump out 147lb-ft of torque. That amazing output is fed to the giant 240-section rear tyre via a five-speed gearbox and shaft drive, while the massively strong steel frame, upside-down forks and Daytona 955i spec four-piston brake calipers elementally contain the Rocket III’s potential.
