    I would suggest to Triumph that they turbo-charge it like my Subaru Outback XT so it'll go fast enough.

    Anyone sat on a car engine recently? Here's your chance. Just don't complain about the heat...

    I met a fellow in Oklahoma that had turbo'ed his Rocket 3. It smoked like a diesel. I asked if he had lowered the compression ratio and he said no. I think the turbo was doing the pressure cooker thing to the engine. I guess 140 hp that it made wasn't enough, eh?
    It would pull a sidecar adequately?

    2500 cc for 160hp the MV Rush has only 1000 cc and 218 hp!
    p.s. my toyota has 2200 cc and 150 hp, weight like a truck and goes nearly everywhere.

    That motor is bit bigger then the Muli-valve motor in my Ram City Van.... (FIAT Doblo') with 178HP.

    That is a pig of a bike! But then, has anyone seen a Boss Hogg with a small block Chevy? Some just want it big I guess to make up for short comings elsewhere.
