Rocket is a heavy bike but low centre of gravity and really goes round corners well ( probably better if I was younger :lol: ). It has plenty of torques and pulls away like stink ( looked it up for somone the other day 0 to 60 in 4.1secs).

Rocket III is an amazing bike but I thought the 0-60 time was sub 3.0 (just). It would be snarling up the pipes of an R1, ZX-10R, Gixxer 1000, etc. For a BIG bike it feels surprisingly light between the legs ( :lol: ). Centre of Gravity is practically on the floor. :o Big up to riders of this muvva.

Have something to contribute?

Time could be wrong. Just googled it and got reply of 4.1. doesnt really matter as I rarely open it up and the one time I did I hit the rev limiters.

Now if you were mad you could go the whole hog ( :blink: ) and fit a supercharger.
But who would do that?
