Triumph Rocket

Heritage is an important part of Triumph’s brand. While the company as we know it today was founded in the 1980s, it carries the spirit of Triumph Engineering, an outfit that had been producing top quality motorcycles since 1902. Those bikes were so top quality, in fact, that up until the 1970s they were the fastest in the world. The Triumph Rocket has been made in an attempt to reclaim that title.

This thing looks much more like its namesake than it does a motorcycle. Covered in a carbon kevlar shell and measuring in at 25 feet long, it’s an aerodynamic missile powered by two turbocharged Rocket II engines that pump out 1,000 horsepower. When this thing rolls out onto the Bonneville Salt Flats this August it’ll be helmed by the British daredevil and motorcyclist Guy Martin who has a goal of taking it over 400 miles per hour.
