For the most part, the Roadster is a mild remake of the original Rocket III we first saw in 2004. Same basic longitudinal engine, steel-tube chassis, shaft drive, inverted fork, super-fat tires (150/80-17 front; 240/50-16 rear), Speed Triple-inspired dual headlights and aforementioned super-tanker gas tank. What’s new are anti-lock brakes, recalibrated dual shocks, one muffler per side rather than two on the right, foot controls moved rearward and a blacked-out treatment on the engine, fork and quite a few other pieces, all complemented by lots of additional chrome. And last but far from least, Triumph claims a retuning that yielded an 11 percent boost in torque and a 4 percent increase in horsepower. Sorry, we’ve never run a standard Rocket III on our dyno in stock form, so we can’t verify that claim.
