I wouldn't spend new bike money for more displacement, when you can get double the horsepower with a carpenter kit and smoke the big boy newbie. You can bet your sweet bippie the new big boy will be way detuned and you will have to spend a fortune getting out of it what you think it should have had in the first place. Errr, well, something like that anyway. :confused:

If they upped the ccs I would probably just buy the crank and keep my bike. Now if they really do something crazy like a new engine, I would have to consider it.

Triumphs, but no Rocket just now.
I can't see Triumph doing anything too crazy - like a 6 in any configuration. It would probably have to be a triple and my money would be on a 2.5-2.8 litre if there's any change at all. But I reckon we're dreamin'. Touring T'Bird in place of the R3T is my guess and R3R around for a while yet.

Haha very true lol the t bird is a twin also hope they do make a six speed rocket that would be cool . They should just scrap the tourer I hate that thing it just does nothing for me . We get a six speed and they can have an Auto with a lambswool seat lol

Scrap the Tourer cos you hate it and it does nothing for you? I see the ethos of 'each to his own' is alive and well in Brisbane ;)
