The latest Triumph Rocket 3 has arrived, complete with a 2,500cc engine – the largest ever seen on a production motorcycle. It’s also the torquiest production bike ever made. This power and torque meet the road through the new Cobra Chrome from Avon Tyres.
The National Motorcycle Dealers Association (NMDA) has revealed the results of its Autumn 2016 Dealer Attitude Survey. Stephen Latham, head of the NMDA said that he was “pleased to see that this year’s survey received a response rate of 33 per cent. Over the last few years there has been a view that brands with a low percentage of dealer responses have not necessarily been representative of the views of that network, and could skew the results either way. Therefore, in this survey, we have decided to suppress the results of three brands that had less than 15 per cent of their dealers completing the survey.”
Delivering his analysis on the motorbike, scooter and moped sector, My Car Check’s Rob Hobson said: “The Triumph Speed Triple has always hit the mark as a fantastic road bike and the 2016 model is the best yet. They’ve improved it in virtually every department, notably in build quality and finish. A well maintained Speed Triple of any age can represent great value. Just check to make sure the one you’re looking at is what it claims to be, especially when buying privately.”
In 1977, Pirelli first launched its first Phantom motorcycle tyre. Subsequent redesigns using the latest technologies have ensured the Phantom name survives to this day, and now the Phantom Sportscomp is being paired up with another classic that began life in another era – the Triumph Bonneville. The latest-generation Phantom Sportscomp has been selected as an original equipment for the Bonneville T120, Bonneville T120 Black and Street Twin.
