TRIUMPH'S new Rocket III Roadster took an opening bow at the annual EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

The British OEM also announced two new special editions and a collaboration with two of the industry's most recognized brands, Castrol and Ohlins.

The Rocket III Roadster is the latest version of the cult 2.3 litre bike first introduced in 2004.

The new model features a sophisticated ABS system, new blacked out styling and revised ergonomics. New exhaust systems have been introduced and account for an improved acoustic experience and increased power and torque. The Rocket III Roadster pumps out a mighty 221Nm, more than any other volume production motorcycle.

Also debuting at EICMA were the Bonneville Sixty and Speed Triple SE. Both special editions, they inspired a glowing review from Fullnoise.au.
