I agree, it looks like 2/3 of a bike and somebody got bored so didn't finish it. I would not be a buyer for that motorcycle. I love the motor and power but they forgot the tail.

I would buy this first. 12 grand with 1200 miles.

I know if I bought it I would have the tins painted immediately. But at least it has a tail.

And, the only thing I don't like that much about this new Rocket is that the exhaust is a 3-into-2 setup, and whereas I think they should have kept the whole "Triple" idea/concept/theme going throughout the bike with a 3-into-3 looking muffler instead.






Dwight,

The new Rocket is a 3 into 3 system. Two pipes on the right and one on the left. Not a lot of photos of the left hand side though.

I have Photoshopped a back end on the new Rocket. What do you think?

Much better! I assume that Triumph will launch a new Rocket 3 touring edition as well at some point.

If that's true here Greg, then sorry to say that that would be even more disappointing to me, design-wise.

You see, I've never cared for the looks of an asymmetrical exhaust layout such as that, what with two on one side and only one on the other.

Nope, like I said earlier, I'd prefer something along the line of what Craig Vetter did with his restyled BSA Rocket-3 prototype/Triumph X-75 Hurricane, and when he kept all three mufflers on the right side.

(...yep, they should've just made that muffler on the right side of this bike with three exhaust openings instead of just two, and kind'a like what MV Agusta has done with their Brutale 800 triple)

--------------------
Yep! Just like a good Single Malt Scotch, you might call me "an acquired taste" TOO.(among the many OTHER things you may care to call me, of course)

The old Suzuki triples I had/have had the 2 outer cylanders going ito an upper pipe on each side and the center split into 2 smaller pipes under the larger ones giving 2 pipes on each side, 4 all together.
