The torque of the rocket is supposed to be ridiculous. As a matter of fact, IIRC they just tweaked the engine to make even more torque. Just slap that ass and ride the wave of torque in LOL

haha I know man, I bet that would be one fun bike to ride, wonder what those bitches top out at, or actually how stable are they at top speed.

Triumph Rocket III Roadster 2010...I am seeing [email protected], and get this: [email protected] Good lawd that's some torque (of course it is 2.3 liters LOL) And with 8.7:1 cr it is a prime candidate for forced induction. I couldn't even imagine the thing with forced induction, it would be crazy Heck the VTX 1800 makes like 120 at the crank at 3grand and it is torquey as shit IMO.

Here check her out:

So that's a negative on the Boss Hoss then?

Saw one of these "rockets" at a stop light - I was in my car and took a double take - thought someone put a V8 motor on that bike!!

Anyhow, MCM says it has 146hp and 163torque - holy crap!!

Really? The Fury? just messin'


I have heard that the V-Rod chassis and basic ergo's are a bit weird, but the engine is nice. The M109R is supposed to be a great bike...I wish I would get the chance to flog one.
