What, no flames yet! I am amazed, if this had been about HD there would have been at least 100 of them by now!



Good job Triumph, for making your own bikes these days! Looks like it is appreciated. I still want a Rocket 3 for the sidecar.....got to pay for the others first....

I second the nice job Triumph. Good for them if the Crotchet III sells like hotcakes, better yet if it sells like a motorcycle! It's not my cup of tea but it no doubt will appeal to the Boss Hog lite fans out there. The Thruxton is my cup of tea and I may spring for one if they pump it up a tad. We need more options and Triumph has made it clear that they are willing to offer new, untried ideas in search of sales. I for one think their bold design thinking is worth rewarding. How much does that damnn twin cost?

I'm finding the $7999 price tag on the Sprint RS to be an almost irresistable deal. I'm not surprised that Triumph is doing well. They are good bikes with reasonable price tags.

I just traded a sv650s for a speed triple.

My first 'new bike' was a 72 bonneville.

after innumerable hondakawasuzuki's I have now come full circle.

I love the fact that Triumph is going well

I'm also a proud Triumph booster. Thinking about buying one.

Well, I love my Triumph, best bike I've owned.

The rumor going around now is that the twins may be bumped up to 1200cc in a year or so, maybe sooner (maybe not)

Too bad about the Rocket3, "The Great Motorcycle Prophylactic" has predicted their demise. Someone better tell Triumph before they wind up like the Japanese in the 80's with warehouses full of unsold bikes.

I just rode the new Rocket III and wow is all I can say...Big, fast and torque is the word...
30 miles per hour in sixth gear is 1000 rpm...
I had to ...ahem...get thru an intersection...so I just cracked the twist grip at 30 mph and in a flash I was hitting 60 mph in the space of the 4 lanes it took to cross the street...

I am impressed...if you get ride on this puppy take it...

If Harley has their "Bad Boy" then this Rocket III is a BAD MAN!

They are going to sell a ton of these!

The RS has been a slow seller, but I've found it to be a great bike. My 2000 RS is approaching 17,000 miles with nothing but smooth sailing. If anything it runs better than new due to Triumph's continuing to provide new tunes.



Here's hoping your experience with Triumph is as positive as mine.

Just got a 2000 RS last Friday, and I keep loving it more every time I get on it. Feels like I got a lot of bike for the money...where else can you mix bargain hunting and European bikes?

I say more power to Triumph! I'm glad they're not the same as everyone else and continue to be different. I was sad when all British vehicles (save Rolls-Royce, Bently and Jaguar) disappeared at the end of the '70's. Glad to see Triumph bikes back and doing well.
