The Rocket 3 engine also has the highest torque figure of any production motorcycle, with 163 LB-FT – an astounding 71% more than its closest competition. With an incredibly flat and rich torque curve, reaching a peak at 4,000 rpm.

The distinctive hydroformed three-header exhaust run is an iconic design detail on both the Rocket 3 R and Rocket 3 GT. This has been meticulously engineered for the perfect exhaust routing, flowing from the header into the combined cat box and onto the beautiful triple-exit silencer.

For exceptional levels of rider comfort and a commanding level of control over the Rocket 3’s powerful performance, a new torque-assist’ hydraulic clutch provides the rider with a light clutch action by reducing lever effort. The Rocket 3’s all-new high-performance six-speed helical-cut gearbox is precision-engineered to be smoother, stronger and lighter than a standard gearbox.

The Rocket 3 line-up features an all-new high-specification mass-optimized aluminum frame with an innovative design that contributes to the new Rocket 3’s overall weight saving and provides an incredible torque-to-weight ratio, over 25% higher than the closest competition. The motorcycle features 
a fully adjustable Showa monoshock rear suspension unit with piggyback reservoir. Paired with a 1.9-inch (47mm) adjustable Showa front forks  to deliver superior handling and exceptional comfort and touring capability. 

Contributing to the Rocket 3’s clean, uncluttered styling is the beautifully engineered single-sided swing arm, with offset monoshock. The stylish internally wired handlebars further reinforce the bike’s muscular feel and commanding riding position. The new Rocket 3 is laced with details like a sculpted fuel tank, and brushed stainless and aluminum accents that perfectly complement their colour scheme options:

  • Rocket 3 R
