    Great price, maybe they are trying to sell before the expected 2019's come out, if they do. Been rumored a bit.

    They are a Triumph dealer. The bikes are new and they are including one extra year of warranty.

    Looks to me like Triumph is dumping a bunch of bikes and they bought them up. It appears they have several. A good deal if you are looking for one.

    They call themselves National Powersports Distributors. In New Hampshire.
    They do seem to have four Rocket III Roadsters in Phantom Black, new, for $11,999.
    Triumph website says that model starts around $15,700. All theirs has the red stripe, or at least if those are pics of the actual models they are selling. They are all 2018's.
    Not a bad deal at all, if it is true. I'd think they will not be there long, especially with the extra warranty.

    What i find really interesting is how little this model has changed since it came out in when, 2005? And how they tend to hold their value, maybe because of that. Some more major changes in 2010, I am told, but not much in style changes save for pipes?
    I often get asked what year mine is - since mine is stock, it is very hard to tell. I have the Matte Phantom Black with the white stripes.

    Anyway...
    We have something similar here in the Chattanooga area, Southern Honda Powersports. Huge Honda dealer who always has great deals, and seems to get in loads of what has to be leftovers from other dealers who could not sell the bikes. They had a load of new Honda Runes years back. Wish I had bought one for the lousy $10K they were asking...now you can't get your hands on one for less than about $22K, no matter what the year. And the older ones seem to command big numbers.

    Snag that Rocket for $11,999 while you can. Then spend the other $4000 on goodies for her.

    When Victory died under the Polaris brand, some people thought it might become a collector's item, especially the Vision. Didn't happen, at least not yet. There were dealers about giving them away, couldn't get rid of them.

    But if Triumph is stopping production of the Rocket III, if 2018 is the last year, with Triumph as healthy as they are, the Rocket may just become a real collector's item.
