My 2008 Triumph Rocket Tourer has a performance tuner so it's probably putting out about 130 horsepower or more. It also has a tuned Jardine Performance exhaust that is throaty and loud and looks great that the tuner was adjusted to. I have the stock exhaust system should the new owner wish to have a more quiet ride. I will provide it free of charge if you come to pick up the bike. Or your shipper can take it for you.

It also has some really nice optional running lights for added safety and they look cool as well.

The bike has about 6800 original miles so it's barely broken in.

I am a middle aged guy and my initial reaction I had when I used to think about Triumph Motorcycles was "Prince Of Darkness" aka Lucas Triumphs always handled good but were always unreliable. Well, now I'm the proud owner of a 2008 Triumph Rocket 3 Tourer and have nothing but praise for this motorcycle.
