New for 2020, 2500cc R3 ...
      #678733 - 08/03/19 02:59 PM

Available 19 Nov ....

Models 3R and 3 GT

A Youtube vid. He doesnt sound like hes reading this, honest ...

Without seeing one in the flesh, they don't appear to look as big and bulky and badass as the original R3.
I owned an original R3 for more than 5 yrs and these just look more sleek. Subtle badass maybe?

There are a lot of reviews on the new Rocket 3 and for the most part, they are all positive. Exceptional handling, even better than the Diavel. Here's one of the better reviews. The TFC model puts out over 180 HP while this one is 165. I want one to go with my old one.

Yeah I wouldn't mind having a new RIII GT w the highway kit. The small saddle bags help hide the Diavel rear end too. I wonder how much they would give me for a trade on my Commander.

You have a 2014 if I recall? I believe you would be offered around $ 4,500.00 or less.

That guy was having way too much fun even in the rain. I think he lost his objectivity after the first mile.

Agreed, not a big fan of the rear fender or lack there of.
