When it comes to unique vehicles, the 2015 Triumph Rocket III Touring Trike takes the cake. This trike began its life as a Triumph Rocket III Touring motorcycle, but after a few modifications it becomes a completely new animal.
Triumph does not sell the Rocket III as a tricycle, nor does it sell the conversion kit itself. In order to get your hands on one of these bad boys, you actually need to have a Triumph dealer order it from a third party. In this case, the third party is MotoTrike. Companies have been turning Triumph motorcycles into trikes for many years, but none are as flawless and convenient as the Rocket III Trike. It is very likely the only one of its kind in this part of the country and is definitely one of the funnest three-wheeled vehicles on the planet.
The Triumph Rocket III comes with the largest production motorcycle engine in the world. No other vehicle on two or three wheels can compete with the 2.3L inline 3-cylinder engine that sits under the seat of the Rocket III trike. It features 148 horsepower and 163 ft-lbs of torque that gets delivered to the wheels via a driveshaft. This engine design puts the Rocket III in the Triumph Speed Triple category, giving it a unique engine sound compared to other trikes on the road.
Remember the bit about taking the cake? Well this trike has a lockable trunk with 5 ft³ of storage space, perfect for a cake or two. This extra storage is perfect for long trips or impromptu picnics. The extra wheel also provides more grip, aiding with acceleration and deceleration alike. The extra weight also makes the vehicle more comfortable on rough roads and long rides.
Unlike many trike conversion kits, the Rocket III features an independent rear suspension setup with working differential. This keeps you between the lines even around the tightest curves.
