Combining classic touring cruiser style with awesome performance and effortless long-haul ability, the Rocket III Touring is designed for those who demand the best.

Although built around the same incredible engine platform as the Rocket III, the Rocket III Touring has been designed specifically for the job of effortlessly covering long distances from the outset. In fact, the only cycle parts shared by the Rocket III and the Rocket III Touring are the rear light and mirrors!

The fuel injected, 12-valve, in-line, three-cylinder, 2294cc engine has been tuned for ultimate cruising capability. With a mighty 154lb-ft of torque at just 2,000rpm, the Rocket III Touring accelerates effortlessly whatever the circumstances.

Comfort for the rider and passenger is of course fundamental for a touring bike, so the Rocket III Touring seat is designed to give luxurious accommodation to both. The seat is constructed with two separate layers of cushioning of different densities, with the passenger getting the extra benefit of a gel pad to make sure the bike is as comfortable 500 miles later as it was when you set off.

A quick-release “look-over” screen comes as standard, as do quick-release 36 litre (10 US gallons) colour-matched panniers. With nearly 70 accessories designed exclusively for the Rocket III Touring, the options for individualising the bike are almost endless. Accessories include a range of seats, a selection of backrests, a variety of luggage options and a multitude of chrome parts.
