    Forget our tiny little 2300cc mini bikes...Triumph is apparently upping the game a couple hundred CCs.


    After a brief sojourn, Triumph are reportedly about to relaunch the Rocket III.

    And true to form, they’re making it bigger, this time to fend off the Ducati Diavel. In a closed-door meeting with British dealers in October, Triumph showed a drawing, and rolled across the stage a test mule, sporting a 2500 cc engine that will make a reported 180 horsepower.

    It retains the single-sided swingarm that incorporates a shaft drive. Observers say it now has a single shock (which may hint at a chassis redesign) and a shorter twin exhaust.

    Officially, Triumph are keeping mum about the revamped Rocket III (although those “leaks” from the dealers-only meeting might well be their own work, to generate buzz.).

    But reports suggest they’ll announce it in early 2019, with sales to begin in the summer. No word on price, which touched $16,000 for the previous incarnation.
