Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Triumph Rocket III:
- The fuel efficiency (shown as fuel consumption above) shows how efficient is a certain motorcycle in converting the chemical energy of the fuel into kinetic energy. It is usually measured by how many liters are needed to travel 100 kilometers (L/100km) or by what distance in miles can be traveled with one gallon of fuel (mpg). In the specific case the fuel economy of Triumph Rocket III allows you to ride 36.2 miles with one gallon of fuel or in other words it will burn 6.50 liters of fuel on a 100 kilometers (62 miles) run. Taken into consideration that it has a 24.0 liters (or 6.3 gallons)s fuel tank capacity it can be calculated that Triumph Rocket III can run 369 kilometers or 229 miles with a full fuel tank.
- Engine displacement of 2294 cc - this refers to the volume described by the movement of a single piston in the cylinder multiplied by the number of the cylinders the engine has. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. The Triumph Rocket III engine has a displacement volume of 2294 cc according to the specifications above and is specified in cubic centimeters but can also be measured in liters.
- 140 mm ground clearance - means that the shortest distance between the ground (considering it is flat) and the chassis of Rocket III is 140 mm. The lower the ground clearance the better the handling but on the contrary higher clearance makes the bike more practical on uneven roads and off-road.Bore and stroke of Triumph Rocket III engine
- Bore and stroke 101.6x94.3 - the bore is a measurement of the inside diameter of the cylinder. The stroke represents the distance traveled by the piston from the top of the cylinder to the bottom (or vice versa) in a single stroke. Based on the technical specifications above Triumph Rocket III has a bore with diameter of 101.6 mm and the length of the stroke is 94.3 mm. As per the parameters of this Triumph engine the measure of the bore is bigger than the stroke which means that Rocket III has the so called short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 8.7:1 - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. Motorcycles with higher compression ratio may be recommended to use premium fuel only in order to avoid engine knocking. Engines with higher compression ratio are more energy efficient because they are able to extract more mechanical energy from a certain amount of fuel.
- Shaft final drive: All three variations of the final drive (shaft, belt and chain) are perfectly doing their job and one of them is always preferable depending on the type of motorcycle and it can not really be said which one of them is the best as each one has its advantages on certain occasions. All of them are workable technologies and have proved that over the years. The final drive of Triumph Rocket III is shaft.
motorcycle with shaft final driveShaft drives are well know from their use in automobiles. The same conception applies when they are used on motorcycles - clean look, smooth movement and minimum maintenance required. Shaft drives on the other hand make the bike more expensive and a bit heavier. If we need to go in details then it should be mentioned that a small amount of power is lost with them because of the moving gears involved.
- Liquid cooling system: both air and liquid cooling systems serve the same purpose to keep the engine in an optimal temperature range and they both have their advantages. While air cooled bikes are better cooled while in motion, the liquid cooled motorcycles have pumps, radiators and fans to deal with the heat even at idle speed.Turn signals of Triumph Rocket III
- You can easily find out how to replace the Triumph Rocket III turn signals and quickly do it yourself. Generally the motorcycle turn signals wires are color coded and disconnecting them is not a problem. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). After making sure that the new Triumph Rocket III turn signals sit in the housing properly you may proceed with connecting the wires.Triumph Rocket III with protective bike cover
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Triumph Rocket III are important when choosing one. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. The cover length, width and height might need to be bigger if saddle bags, fairings or backrest have been installed on the motorcycle.
