Rocket Man

I have never owned a Triumph before but with in a few days I will be taking possession of a real Rocket. This is not your average Rocket lll, this is a fire breathing ass kicking, liter bike stompin, busa eater, take no prisoner 240 rwhp/200 ft/lbs of torque Carpenter Rocket.

I'll bet that's a blast to ride. I want so much to ride one but I can't find a dealer that has one and I have checked out 5 dealers.

Read about them in Dragbike.com, plenty of grunt.
There's a bloke in Adelaide South Oz who is making similar levels of stoooopidness.
Good to see people making use of the motor the way I rekn the engineers thought of when throwing it together.

No - that is 200 ft-lbs @ 3500 rpm.

This thing would be an absolute beast. The stock Rocket already has a baseball-bat-to-the-back throttle response and under full acceleration, makes most other bikes feel tame. With so much excess power and torque, you would need big cojones to keep the Carpenter pinned.
