Quote from Motorcycle Daily:What happens when you mix nearly 150 foot pounds of torque with a vehicle weighing approximately 700 pounds? According to Triumph, you have a power cruiser that can reach 60 mph even quicker than a Suzuki Hayabusa. This claim does not reside in the following press release, but it did make its way to some of the dealers, and press, in attendance at Triumph's dealer meeting this last Sunday. Among other things, the claimed dry weight of the Rocket III is remarkably low given its 2.3 liter engine displacement

Sounds to me like Triumph is blowing smoke, or maybe they have been inhaleing some........
I can't imagine that it can beat a Busa but we will have to see. Cool idea though, nice to see things getting shaken up rather than not taking risks.
