I think Triumph Rocket III will be a nice bike when it is available in the USA. However,some of the comments seems exaggrated. Largest cc?-Yup. Most torque?-Yup. Most HP?-Nope. Fastest?-Nope. Ever hear of a Hyabusa?, a GSX-R1000?, an R1?, a CBRXX?, a CBR1000RR? etc. (The Rocket III isn´t a sportbike.) This thing has a monster motor but the rest of the bike is pretty mundane and lacks the newer technology. (Technologically, the Valkyrie Rune makes the Rocket III appear to be a stagecoach.) No trick suspension, it utilizes an old style tube steel frame...it sort of brings the V-Max to mind... fantastic motor but the rest of the platform; frame, suspension, wheels and tires are horrible. (By the way, I love V-Max´s!) I also think I´ll like the Rocket III but will wait to see the build-quality Triumph puts into it. Hype is inevitable but we just have to keep things in proper prospective. Hah!
