    Triumph Rocket 3 Roadster 2010 and Roadster X
    Hi,
    I'm debating if i should sell my 2010 Roadster to buy a very low milage Rocket X.
    This limited model was more expensive than the ordinary one?
    The differences are only cosmetic, isn't it?
    If i buy it i have to paint my crash bars to black.
    I would like to hear some opinions.
    Thanks

    Cosmetic only . . . but you do get a number between 1 and 500.
    Only if you crave the look of the X, IMHO.

    I kind of like it. IMG_0570.JPG Gonna like it a lot more after the new cams and a really good tune. Buy it and get the crash bars powder coated. You will not regret it at all unless you do not like complements on how great it looks every time you head out on it. Even the Harley guys like it. :p:p:p:p:p:p Would not trade it for anything. Love it.

    The deal is done. Maybe tomorrow or tuesday will be in my garage.
    #426 is the number and it "smells" like new. 8200Kms.

    My Roadster 2010 has 48500km, for now will stay at home till sell it
