VIDEO: Triumph Rocket III Roadster

Wheelies, powerslides? Triumph introduce their 2300cc Roadster with a bang

USING RIDING techniques better suited to a supermoto than a 300kg, 2300cc cruiser, Triumph appear to be attempting to create a whole new market for their Rocket III Roadster in this new promotional video, released yesterday.

In a no expense spared production, filmed at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Triumph's test rider wows viewers with an impressive display of rolling burnouts, wheelies and a tyre-shredding powerslide.

It's all good fun, but we're not sure many potential owners will be trying to imitate the rider's actions.Imagine flipping that bugger!
