KING OF THE POWER CRUISERS: The Rocket III has defined a unique niche in the clone-like performance cruiser market and exists in a class all on its own with its striking looks, stunning performance and incredible specification.
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.
