Triumph has released performance figures for its upcoming, gargantuan Rocket III TFC. Its 2.5-liter three-cylinder motor will make a mighty 180 horsepower, and 225 Nm (166 lb-ft) of torque - more than any other production motorcycle.

Granted, this prodigious powerplant will need to shunt at least 320 kg (700 lb) of motorcycle around the place, but this does little to dampen our enthusiasm for the biggest, baddest, most excessive and eye-poppingly huge motorcycle this side of a Boss Hoss.

Sorry but the lightning LS218 makes more power and is way faster and green. Stop making these foolish ICE bikes

I think that looks really nice.

Yeah, and the LS218 is easier to push when the battery goes flat away from any power points!
